You Asked for It.......

On Saturday night Lexi's jump roping team "Jump n Jive" had a halftime performance during the women's basketball game at Southeastern Oklahoma State University in Durant, Oklahoma. We videoed her doing her famous "rump bump". Listen to the crowd and the announcer. We have been to many performances and we always feel the same way! Enjoy!

Oh my gosh! It took me a second to realize that she was rump jumping over the rope! What a great thing to participate in. I bet she's in great shape. :)

Ashlie said...

That was so cool! I love how the crowd went crazy when she started! Way cool, Lexi!

Smilingsal said...

I like that title: the rump bump! She's really fast too!

Cottage Rose said...

Hey Darlene; That was so amazing. I am so impressed, she did a wonderful job, even when I was younger I don't think I could have done that... lol

How exciting! I had to watch and listen 3 times! I've never (until now) seen rump jumping! I'm sure she was pumped from the rump jump! I love how the crowd went bezerk and the music was great! I'd love to see the team in action too! Can you post some of their "art" ????

Tell your daughter I think she has great talent!

Lexi is amazing. She's so fast you can't even see the rope going under.

linda said...

How in the world did she do that!?! I could no more get my rear off the ground...my video would be in ssslllloooowwww motion for sure!

Bo said...

You've got to be kidding me!! WOW,
Lexi is incredible...this is the cutest thing...Loved it, ;-) Bo

Marilyn said...

MY WORD!! That is incredible. Boy, she is really coordinated. Thanks so much for sharing that.

Thanks also for the great ideas on my white books. I like them both and love the idea of labeling them. I could easily color coordinate for each boy so the nonreader knows his books.

Thanks. I left a message on your last post but it was way down the line.

You should put Lexi's rump bump on youtube. Later. Incredible job, Lexi!!

Vintage Girl at Heart said...

April said...

Deb said...

Fabulous jump roping! What an amazing reaction from the crowd :-)

~The Robin's Nest~ said...

Tooo funny! That is the coolest thing ever! She doesn't look like she has any "extra" junk in her trunk to be doing that though! :)
She really gets the crowd going! It's very exciting!

I came over here to your blog to watch this and saw your little banner saying "yes, I am one of those Twilight people" and I just cracked up...I know I have seen it before but that was "BEFORE" I read the books...I've read them all twice now and am so addicted!
I actually started reading the authors other book about aliens called "The Host" I'm only on the first chapter-I'm really not sure what I think yet. (but it's no Twilight that is for sure!)
Happy Monday back to you~♥
Robin~♥

All I can say is "WOW!" Way to go Lexi!

Christina said...

Great job Lexie. I know y'all are two proud parents. Looks like everyone enjoyed the "rump bump."
She's fast too. Wow.

Susie from Bienvenue said...

Go Lexi! She's gonna be big..real big! I will be able to say I knew her when she was a little thing, hehe. Wish I could jump like that {without fire under my bottom}!
You just have to come to Bliss next year. I think everyone knew you already. Yes.. I did talk about you and how great you are to always leave a sweet comment every where you go. They love ya! So see you need to come neat year so I can meet ya in the flesh!

Lindsay-ann said...

nikkicrumpet said...

That is awesome! Dang that must take some serious tummy muscles to be able to do that so many times in a row! SHE ROCKS!

Ruth Ann said...

Wow! That was sooo cool! And to jump rope at the same time is just amazing! Way to go Lexi!

Neabear said...

I don't see how she can do that! Amazing muscles I guess. Awesome job! Go Lexie!!

Judi said...

Hi Darlene!
Wow that is soooo neat. She does a great job. I know you had told us about it but is so neat to see her in action. Sooooo..did she learn all of this from you??

Thank you for asking about Abby. It is so amazing how they come around quickly. She it done on Thursday a.m. I brought her home Friday after work. She was so happy and loveable and she jumpe dup here and there! Amazing eh? I guess you saw the same with Midnight.
Only thing for some reason she has a lack of appetite yesterday and this a.m. I don't know what thats about. Otherwise she seems just fine.

have a great day!
Judi

Oliver's said...

Darlene, I love your box what a clever idea! How are you liking this beautiful weather in OK? Feels like spring is just around the corner!

Michelle said...

Never have I seen anything like this before...very impressive...

Rechelle ~Walnuthaven Cottage~ said...

Omgosh! Talk about your "buns of steel". That is just fabulous. It actually took me a second to realize she was jumping with her body. She must have the stamina of a champion!

The Quintessential Magpie said...

What a cutie, and I'm aching from looking at her routine. LOL! But WOW! She's good! :-)

XO,

Sheila

Cathy Cobblestone said...

Honestly, I bet I couldn't jump it one time much less a 100 like she did. That is really neat - thanks for sharing.

I wanted to tell you that I appreciate your kind words regarding my friends passing.

Many blessings, Cathy

Mom said...

Darlene and family were in a storm shelter for a long while tonight. I just talked with her and a tornado hit their town. All power lines are down, trees down and some lives have been lost. They are still under a tornado watch until 12:00 midnight tonight, so there is a possibility they will have to return to the shelter.

It is hard to tell the extent of the damage because it is dark, no electricity and the streets are closed down because electric cords and trees cover them.

I don't know how many will read this comment, but if she still does not have electricity by tomorrow, she is going to walk me through how to post on her blog....Her post for tomorrow is already set up for tomorrow morning, but I am hoping I can post what happened for her so her blog friends will know why they are not hearing from her....

The good news is, they are safe!!

Cherry's Jubilee said...

Wow the crowd goes crazy huh! That is too cooool. I had to play catch up....great projects...love the pixie in the cloche....i need to make one. cherry

M.L. @ The House of Whimsy said...

No sir....that is incredible. I'm so glad you taped it so we could see too. Tell Lexi she's amazing!!!
Also, I wanted to tell you how SUPER cute your covered boxes are. Way To Go! : )
