Performance at the Elks Spaghetti Dinner.....

As many of you know Lexi is on a performing jump roping team called the Jump-n-Jive. She made it the first year she was eligible to try out (in 2nd grade) and this will be her last year to be on the team.....boohoo! They had the team from last year (minus the kids that moved up to 6th grade) practicing for about 3 weeks so they could perform at the spaghetti dinner fundraiser for the Elks Lodge. It was last night, and as always so much fun to watch.
She is so good and didn't mess up even once!
That is Lexi on the left kind of ducking turning the double dutch ropes.....the girl jumping in had just jumped over her head to get into the ropes!
After their performance they got to eat dinner....spaghetti, salad, garlic bread and dessert. It was really good. Also, you can go here and see one of Lexi's signature jump roping tricks called the rump bump (click on the link in the post). She swings the rope and jumps it with her butt muscles....take a peak and listen to how the crowd always responds. Yep, she did it last night and the crowd loved it!

Hope everyone has a wonderful weekend. On Saturday Lexi will be cheerleading at the first 5th grade football game of the season. I can't wait!

That rump bump always amazes me. She is just incredible. What a fun time!

Did you get a lot of rain? We got just enough to stall out the shed and get all my stuff soaked. That is a mess.

Enjoy that football cheering.

Enjoy the weekend!

YEA!!! I love it when you post pics with Lexi doing her jumprope shows. But add my Boo-Hoo to yours regarding the "last year" thing. Why do kiddos have to grow up???
Congratulations on winning "Mabel". So So cute!!!
And your Dad looks out-of-control adorable on that lawn mower. I'll bet you can hardly wait for them to move closer.

Hi Darlene, we just arrived home from watching the movie 'Julie and Julia.' We loved it. Have you seen it yet?

Lexie is so cute with her jump roping event. I was amazed at the girl who jumped over Lexi and into the rope. Is that right? I think that's what I just read. LOL. Impressive. I know Lexi will love cheerleading the first game. Two of our girls were cheerleaders at the same age as Lexi. I remember how cute they were.

Did I tell you our poodle puppy was just born. She is red with a splash of white on her forehead. We are thrilled. We will get her in Nov. The breeder is in South Georgia, a few hours away. We will go see her in a few weeks. I will post a photo soon. We are so ready for this new puppy.

Hugs...Jeanne
