Organ and cookies

We had a pretty good Christmas this year.  My daddy passed away in May, so we went to Arkansas to spend Christmas with my stepmother, her son, daughter in law and grandson, and her son's aunt.  We were only there for two days, but it was a nice, unstressful holiday.
My stepmom and I made cookies.  Her daughter-in-law(Danielle) and she made the cookie dough last week (ginger krinkles, walnut balls and sugar cookies).  Sunday Marge and I baked them.
I rolled them out and put them on the cookies sheets.  She put them in the oven and took them out of the oven and made the frosting.
She tried to hide behind my hair.
Her grandson, my step-nephew, put the sprinkles on, but the picture was blurry of him.
Marge also sent us home with an organ that was my daddy's.
 I had to move my treadle to the dining room to have place for the organ.  (I'll show you that later)  My cats wanted to crawl in the hole where the pedal is, so we had to stick a penguin there to keep them out of the organ!
It is a "Thomas 4 channel, Californian 266 and the Rhythm Section".  It is a digital organ with a lot of  buttons.  We can't figure out half of the buttons on it.  Does anyone know where we can find a manual for it?  Or some good music to learn to play an organ?
I thought my old oil lamps looked perfect on it!
I am linking this post to Vintage Thingie Thursday at Colorado Lady.
How was your Christmas?
BTW, I have new "old" quilt to show ya'll later!

No idea about the manual but what a nice gift you received. I'm glad you explained the penguin though, LOL. Glad you also got home ok and didn't get caught in ice and snow

What a great visit and such a nice gift to bring home! I'm sure you can find the manual online. How fun to learn to play it.

It is nice when the family bonds for a happy occasion. I do not know a thing about organ music. I do enjoy it, but a piano is my biggest enjoyment.

So glad you were able to spend the holiday with family. It makes the season so much more meaningful when you are with family. Hope you find instructions for the organ.

Hi Missy,

It looks like everyone had fun making cookies. Seeing your organ brought back memories. We had one when I was growing up, but never took the time to learn how to play. Something I kind of regret now. I’m co-hosting with Katherine this week at Thursday Favorite Things and hope you will stop by for a visit. Wishing you all the best in 2013.
