...and a Partridge In a Pear Tree


Last night we gathered for a neighborhood caroling party. The hosts have not one, but two pianos and friends to play the night away. The caroling starts with sheet music for everyone . Behind the scenes, adults, teenagers, and the little ones, vie for spots in the "12 Days Of Christmas", the highlight of the evening. Well, I'm partial, my Eva has sung... "and a partridge in a pear tree" for the second year in a row. Here she is!

Lovely tilt to the head and exposed throat line, Virginia. Open eyes of innocence and trust.
