Ethan has been taking Mandolin for about a year and a half and is doing wonderful. I love to hear him play the Mandolin. He is with a local music studio, which enabled him to do an esemble with his friend and the owner of the studio. They played What Child Is This. Ethan and his friend Dylan did so good. I was proud of our boy for conquering fears and getting up there and playing. The Church was packed and the kept having to add seats.

We celebrated our Cora girl this year. Her second birthday home. She knew the drill this year, and wanted a Cinderella party. We kept it very low key, and let her invite one special friend from church named Yuri. Yuri and Cora are becoming sweet little friends and it is neat to watch.
Things we have seen in our girl in growth is huge. She is happy and a little jokester. We try to keep events like this low key because she can still get out of sorts, since her birthday and Christmas are so close. Though we have come leaps and bounds from last year. If you look at pictures from last birthday you can see she just has a more joyful spirit about her. It is coming slowly, but surely we are seeing God's redemptive story unfold in her.
Thankful for our sweet Cinderella!!!!!! She is worth it!!!!!!
Best of Friends

We have four taking Piano with Miss Hannah. She is a dear teacher, and we are very thankful for her. We enjoyed a lovely recital at our local assisted living center. She plans the kids recitals here so they can play their music for the families and the residents there. It was a wonderful evening.
Austin and Corbin are progressing so well and are enjoying playing. Cora and Mia have been playing a semester and are enjoying it also.

We have been enjoying the Christmas season over hear in the Leggio household. I love making memories as a family, and having things for my children to look back on in their childhoods.
We helped Mimi decorate her tree, we made gingerbraed houses, trimmed our tree and have been reading lot's of Christmas books and watching Christmas movies. Cocoa, Sugar Cookies are always a favorite in this season too.
Focusing on Jesus first and foremost. Because he truly is the reason for this season.
