Re-posting since my posts got lost when the server back-up went nutty.
My fourteen year old daughter Autumn. Freshman in High School, Honor Roll student and incredibly musically talented. She plays fife, flute, irish penny whistle, Bb Trumpet, Eb Trumpet, piano and guitar.
The kid amazes me. We got her a guitar for her birthday. Four hours later, she's out on the deck playing the choruses from Ironman by Iron Maiden and Nothing Else Matters by Metallica almost perfectly. She plays by ear mostly.
Shot with a long range lense at the New Haven St. Patrick's Day Parade by friend because she hates having her picture taken.
(Autumn actually knows how to use that bow. She has deadly aim)

And last but not least, my husband Mark, who's so thrilled that I posted a picture of him on the internet in a skirt!
My first attempt at making a kilt and I happen to like the picture, so
Not too many pictures of me as I flee from the camera in fear. This was one was taken by the same friend with the long range lense at the New Haven St. Patrick's Day Parade.
I don't have too many pictures of us in mundane clothes, so you get us in garb.
