musical birthday

January 2, 2011 by sholdren

Happy New Year, everyone! Looking forward to all the adventures that await us in 2011!

Yesterday was my birthday, and I had a nice time with Brian and the kids. We went out a bit, hung out around the house, opened presents from family, and also got a bucket of “All Lovin’ No Oven” icecream from Coldstone Creamery. Here are some pictures of what I got from Brian and the kids:

Pretty tulips in a pot, a lovely card, and a bag of gummies – my favorite! I will try to keep the tulips alive so I can plant them in the spring.

Me with my new classical guitar from Brian and the kids! I played guitar a little before I got married, but not much. I really want to learn fingerpicking style, so I’m excited to get started on that!

The kids and I. Brianna loves the piano, as well as Silas, and Silas also loves the ukulele. I’ve given him one uke lesson so far, and it was about how to play the C chord.

I got some other awesome gifts from family, which I also really love!

Happy New Year!
