Strumming Along!

Maddy loves music!

She loves singing along and dancing. Her fave songs lately seem to be Taylor Swif*t songs or some from Alvin & the Chipmunks!

That Alvin cd is a little painful for me to listen to
(yikes -- chipmunks singing -- oy -- they need some voice lessons!),
but Mr. Tennis listens to it with her every morning -- bless his heart!

Recently, she was interested in getting a guitar. However, in the store,
a ukulele caught her eye -- isn't it cute!?!
The strings are nylon so easier on the fingers and only 4 strings!
A handy instruction DVD came along with it, so we're watching that daily and practicing.
After she gets a little better, I think a prize of some Disne*y ukulele picks will be just the thing to keep her motivated!

Way to go Mr. Tennis for listening to that Chipmunks CD, I don't think I could do it! Adorable pictures. I can't wait to hear how she continues with this.

That is awesome that she is learning to play!! Maybe in time she will work her way up to a guitar......for now, I think she looks adorable with that ukulele!!

Mr. Tennis is a great Dad....I agree the Chipmunks are painful to listen to..especially day after day....UGH!!!

Hope you had a fabulous 4th~

enjoy your week!
