2011/363: Christmas Non-Surprise

Unfortunately Santa didn’t get to surprise Melissa with her gift, because she got a choice of either a netbook, or a keyboard, and… she chose the keyboard. We made sure to ask her several times before giving Santa the go-ahead to buy it. Wouldn’t have been the first time that she changed her mind about something 😉
She got to try it out at the store, and then look at it in the dining room for over a month (at least it was wrapped in wrapping paper most of that time, although I’m not sure that this made the torture any less for her).
We went and got a stand for it yesterday, after cleaning out her room to make space for it on Tuesday, and now it’s all set up in her room. She’s pretty good, too! (Now I guess I’m waiting for her to come home from school one day and announce Mom!! Dad!! My friends and I started a band!! )

  1. That is awesome. Is she teaching herself?

    • She already knows how to play a little, but the keyboard also has some songs programmed, that you can teach yourself.

  2. Will she take lessons? That’s so awesome that she chose the keyboard over the netbook. I’m impressed!

  3. wow, thats some keyboard! to have something that big under the tree is impressive…I think all Bud’s gifts combined could fit in his stocking and cost a small fortune…I’m not a fan of teenage gifts 😉
