Early Birthday Gift

Ryan, my parents, and his parents got me a piano for my birthday!  Yeah!  It was such a surprise, I had no idea.  I walked in the house after work, and there's a giant box in our living room.  Ryan says, "Surprise!  I got you a new piano!  But it's broken!"  I guess my piano broke during shipping, and they had to send out for a new one.  And the new one arrived on Thursday, so Ryan and I put it together in about an hour.

So as many of you know, I have been taking piano lessons for almost two months, and I'm flying along.  I really enjoy playing, and I love my teacher, but I get nervous when I have to show her my "homework."  With having the piano now at home, I don't have to run over to our church building everyday to practice.  I can practice all day everyday now, and I love it!  It's an electric piano, but the keys are weighted just like a real piano (the harder you press the keys, the louder the sound).  And it can be played on all different settings.  I enjoy playing it on the harpsichord setting, and pretending I'm in one of Jane Austen's books.  Here are some pictures.  Isn't it cute?

Thank you so much Ryan, Mom and Dad, and Gary and Debbie!  I love it!
