The Fun Just Never Ends


Yesterday weeks of planning, designing and organizing came to fruition as we packed 259 pieces of our framed artwork into a 22 ft. truck destined for the Southern Accents showhouse at Homestead Preserve, Hot Springs, Virginia. The logistics of a project like that is mind boggling. At least it boggled my mind. Many times. Murphy's Law is always in full swing when it comes to stuff like this. The best laid plans always run amok, but we pulled it off. I know the house will be beautiful and I'm so proud of our folks for the glorious pieces they created.

Then, this afternoon I waited 2 hours to see the pediatrician, who told me in a matter of five minutes Adam's ear is "a little red" and sent me on my way with a prescription. Forty bucks, a torrential downpour and three hours later, I was back home with an overly tired, very hungry little boy.

So, tonight, as I was cleaning up the kitchen after dinner, I flipped on the iPod for a little pick-me-up. If y'all could have seen me scraping the plates to the beat of Frankie Valley singing Grease you would have been amazed at my level of coolness. My polo shirt with the hole in the side would have just added to the awe.

And what else would such a cool mama do except tell the kids to get their groove on (along with their pajamas and head towel) and join me?

Raise the roof, brother, raise the roof!

Oh, can you even stand the sophisticated moves?

Even red-hot smokin' daddy was gettin' down tonight.

Oh, mama! The fun just never ends!


Lori :

Oh my Jill - I'm so glad you were able to come home and get your groove on with your kids and RHSH after the day you've had!

Those were very cute pictures and a fun post!

Lyndy :

What adorable pictures and yes, you are a cool mom and so is dad.

Hope your little one feels better.


Tracey Kirksey :

LOVE the photos! Making memories!!! Like Kat once said, "it's the moments that matter!"

Just precious!

Momma Roar :

That is the best thing before bedtime - a little movin' and groovin' to make the kids smile! Love the photos - I think we need to do some dancin' today - but maybe a rain dance :(

Kristen :

How cute are you all? I love this and I know the kids love this too. This is the stuff memories are made of!

Bella :

My goodness what a full day! You have more inspiration and energy than I probably would have...any trip the Dr. just drains me! YIKES!!!

Leah in Iowa :

Gosh ~ what fun! And what great moves the Iowa girl has! =) I am SO impressed!! Could that be what attracted red-hot-smokin-daddy to you in the first place? Heehee.

Keep working hard to bury memories like that in your kids ~ it's what life is made of.

Happy Working Mom :

Adorable pictures!

You go girl! Cute photos! It's the unplanned fun that seems to make the most memories.


Nadine :

What fun Jill to dance with the kids like that. They have some really cool moves. I loved the pictures.

Susan :

What fun. Glad you remembered to take the pictures!!

Annie :

My two oldest stayed with my parents this weekend while we were in dallas ... and my 16 year old said that her and 'nini' were dancing in the kitchen... and she taught nini to 'drop it like it's hot'... I would pay big for pics of that !! :o)
You guys are just a blast, I can tell!

Sandy :

Get down, Girl!
Fun, fun, fun photos!

Knit-Wit :

We did the same thing the other night - only to the Doobie Brothers. It was a great stress reliever.

I know how frustrating trips to the doctor's office can be. We've made WAY too many of them in the past 6 months. I figured out that we have averaged a total of $500 per month for the last six months in doctor bills (and we have excellent insurance).

Melene :

Oh that is just awesome. I love it.
I just purchased my first IPOD and it's so fun to wear while I'm cleaning the house. I was groovin' to Boogie Wonderland just yesterday!

Jamie :

Love those pictures!! How cute is everyone! :)
