Festival Fun

A family tradition- St. Marys Festival and this year did not disappoint. 
We had so much fun. 
Lia met Father Lutz by saying- "Hey I like your dress" 
Father taught her a new word - Cassock - not a dress!!! 

Jim did his good deed by helping move a beautiful baby grand piano outside the church. All the while praying no one dropped it

Lia loved the piano 
She danced
She sang 

And she had the opportunity to play
She played the piano with Father 

With her Opa 

And then had her solo debut! 

Thanks for the tip Opa!! 

Father took requests so Lia requested a few of her favorites 
Somewhere over the rainbow 
Twinkle Twinkle 
Deck the halls 
And Jesus Christ has risen today 

It was 6:30- time for the ham raffle and Opa won it - again!! It's so funny he wins almost every year. We'll be having a huge ham dinner sometime soon. 

Lia headed back to the piano a time or two and the we headed to The Book Loft

It was a beautiful night and we had a great time. 
However - we all missed Oma this year but next year we'll do it again and she'll be feeling better with her new hip and will walk circles around us all!!


  1. Sounds like fun - the photos at the piano are too adorable!

  2. haha! I like your dress! It is a nice 'dress'. Sounds like an awesome day!

  3. Definitely a fun day
    Looks like Lia was center of attention :)

  4. Aly, I don't even know where to begin with the things I love about this post! The dress comment?! The sunglasses? The piano playing? Lia's sweet smile? Love. It. All. :)

    It always warms my heart to see how many people love your daughter and how many lives she is touching. What a special little girl.

  5. Do you find that you do things like this more often (and wonder why you didn't before) than before you had a child? O' course, I'm guessing that Lia makes many things more fun.

    Looks like a fun time was had by all.
