Piano, Reading & Sewing. Gung Hay Fat Choi!

LiLi was barely in the door yesterday when she raced downstairs to play the piano.
She had learned  Twinkle, Twinkle on a piano app & wanted to show us.  I found some simple songs for her & Popster helped her with them
She played for between 2-3 hours with only a break for breakfast....she is obsessed!
Then she "retired" to my room for her other obsession....reading
She sets the time on her phone & reads for an hour.  There is a challenge at her school to read for 90 mins a week.  They have combined grades to form teams & are sailing to South America using the minutes to translate to miles.  She has been reading for close to 300 mins a week & her goal this week is 60 mins a day!  She wants to win so, of course, the "over-achiever" in her thinks she should do a "little extra"!
After lunch we went snow shoeing....I'll share those pics later.  Then we spent some time in my sewing room designing a skirt from a "jellyroll" I had.
She picks out the strips & the order she wants them & I cut them to length....I think she should be a fashion designer as she has a great eye for color.  I think though this week she wants to be a piano player!
Love

HAPPY BIRTHDAY TO MY BIG BROTHER

Happy birthday to my big brother Terry...........have a wonderful day!

Snowy day in the park

I have an abundance of snow pics.  Between last Thurs & Monday we had 20 inches of snow!  We are so done with this white stuff!
 But I do have to admit it is pretty


 Makes for great pictures
 And you'll see from the next few pics how much Molly loves it!



   We take a two second pause.....
 ......& off again




 I do hope the hornets went to Florida for the winter





 This sums up the whole walk!
Love

Thanksgiving

We went to JoAnne & Peter's for thanksgiving this year.  They were cooking dinner & Josh & Carol were going to be there
 Molly is always game for a road trip!


 It was gray , gloomy day & kinda chilly by the river
 Sadie is such a cutie
 We couldn't get Addie to pose as cute
 Josh got there first as Carol had to work......these dogs just love him

 I forgot to take pics of the table but everything was so good & JoAnne made apple pie!
 We spent the night & left for home after breakfast on Friday.  Our GPS sent us home a different way & we crossed the Tappan Zee bridge.  They are building a new one so lots of work going on

 One of those big cranes toppled over a few weeks ago.....they are so tall
 Look at the size of that one!
 As you know I love bridges
Love
