Hi! It’s me! Lily!

Tonight I did a dress rehearsal for the family and Liz’s family too.  They all came over and sat around the piano, and I came down in my gown and heels (Sabby taught me how to walk in heels… I HATE IT… but they sure make my legs look nice!!!), bowed, and sat down at the piano.

David started yapping.

You know that cartoon where the bunny is playing the piano and that guy starts coughing, and he pulls out a gun and offs him?  I felt like that.  Sabby grabbed him by the ear to his room.  She said “This is like a concert, and you don’t behave like that at a concert.”  He really didn’t know what he was doing wrong.  So anyway, after David was removed, I redid my entrance, and played my set.  About 45 minutes of music.  Afterwards, everyone applauded… well, of course they did, why wouldn’t they?  But I think I have it nailed.  It’s very different playing in front of a crowd of people.

Tomorrow is the “real” dress rehearsal, you know, with the teacher and a real piano and all that stuff.

My gown is so pretty!!! It’s a royal blue with a gathered waist and exposed back and it’s kind of short… and I love it!!!  I showed a picture of me in it to Jack and… well… he made me blush sooo hard!!!  Bad Jack!!!  Bad… sigh.  Good Jack. Very good jack.

So storms are coming!!! YAAAAYYYY!!! But it looks like a full night of boomies!  BOOOO!!!

In two days is the real recital!!!  YAAAAAYYYYYY!!!!  Everyone’s coming!!!  Even Allison!!!

Love you all!!! ❤
