Ella smiled this morning. Alison kissed her cheek and she instantly started smiling really big. She hasn't done that before and so we kind of freaked out with excitement. It's so cute.

We have three days left for Andrew Peterson's record before it goes to mix. We're just about done with electric guitars now, and we're doing a lot of bgv's. This afternoon we're going to Paul Moak's place to use his B3 for a couple hours and then back here.

Tonight I'm playing with Michelle Avery again at the French Quarter in East Nashville. Cason's playing bass this time, so that will be fun. It's the first show for the new pedal board, so I'm excited about that. I'm about to start on the big one maybe this weekend. I think I'm going to sell my Ernie Ball volume pedal, if anybody wants it. I need to get one smaller so I can fit some other stuff on the board. Let me know if you want it and I'll cut you a deal.

I think we're going to try out a new church this weekend, and I've been excited about that for the last few days. I want to write more about that later, hopefully today, so I won't get into it now. 'East of Eden' is continually a better and better book. It might become my favorite Steinbeck. Well, I think I have to go sing some ooh's and aah's, so I'll write more later.
