Maggie’s New Fiddle…


Maggie’s birthday was at the end of April…  and we had a little celebration for her…  and she got to open up her first gift!



It is a brand new beautiful beginning violin!   (Of course, in this house, it’s a fiddle because we are a bluegrass family!)

Maggie has been trying to learn to play with our old old fiddle we have and it’s been a bit of a challenge.  It was her great, great grandfather’s and it’s in delicate shape and a little cranky.  Not the best to learn on.

And being a family heirloom, it just was not a good one to take out to festivals and play with others at jams and such.  It’s a special thing…  So, it seemed time to get her a good solid student model to learn her chops on!

And this one is a beautiful thing!!!  Look at that beautiful back.  All solid wood!  Mom really shopped around for this baby.  I didn’t want to spend a fortune but I sure wanted something that sounds good and that she could learn on and play for quile awhile.  I think we got one!

She can squawk out a few notes and a little tune, but I hope she will have a great time learning more on this one…  She’s been watching YouTube lessons and learning a lot!   Fun stuff for sure.


Jessy got her a candy bar and then sweeted it up with a gift card for a game she has been wanting!  And a very funny card…  She got some other lovely cards and goodies and had a nice birthday!  I can’t believe she is 23 years old!!!!  Times flies!!!  IMG_0972 IMG_0974

She wanted Chinese food for dinner and a chocolate pie for desert!  It was a lovely day and everyone enjoyed it very much!!!
