This year Maddy and Poppy gave Grace, Jack and Eve the gift of music. Maddy and a very good friend of hers have been searching and traveling throughout New England over the past several months to find the perfect musical instruments for Grace, Jack and Eve.
On the night before Thanksgiving my parents, Bob and I worked very late into the night to rearrange a portion of our playroom into a music room. On Thanksgiving morning Grace, Jack and Eve were stunned to find their playroom filled with a variety of musical instruments. Since then, our house has been filled with beautiful music!
Here are some pictures from Thanksgiving morning. I will be posting many more pictures of my three little musicians in the weeks to come...
Maddy and Poppy put on an unforgettable bongo performance for Grace, Jack and Eve.
Can you tell who really, really, really got into their bongo performance?!!? We think Poppy may have missed his calling as bongo player. :)
In the picture above, Grace is showing Poppy how to play the glockenspiel. A glockenspiel is similar to a xylophone but a xylophone's bars are made of wood, while the glockenspiel's are metal. Also, the glockenspiel is usually smaller and higher in pitch.
Eve is just tall enough to play the bongos! I love how her head peeks out from behind.

The Little Leger trio!
I can't thank my parents enough for these amazing instruments...your gift of music will last Grace, Jack and Eve a lifetime. Thank you for forever filling our house with the beautiful sound of music.
