Ok. So I am not a cheerleader. Is it obvious?
These are the types of things that happen when I hang out with certain people who won't be named.
(Jenn and Andrew)
We busted out the camera. We realized how cool a simple (or not so simple) jump can look when frozen in time. We also realized how sore your feet become when you jump and jump and pose and jump for close to an hour. It may have been the best day of my live...second only to my wedding day...and the day we rode the riding lawn mower all over town.

You crack me up! I thought you were practicing your pose for what you'll look like when you get "the call"!!! :) Are you sure you're okay over there while you're waiting? :) Just kidding. ~Shelly

Sweet moves! You do look cool frozen in time.

I'm glad you're keeping busy during this wait. I really hope we travel together so you can teach me some sweet moves. I'm going nutty over here... so naturally, I went shopping. With all the money we don't have! yikes!
Let's hope for a referral flood next week!!!

I seriously could not figure out why my legs were so sore! Seeing your pics made me just remember that we were jumping for hours and hours! duh!

Misty said...

Nice moves! I got all excited when I saw the pictures because I figured you were jumping for joy at news of your referral. You had me fooled!! Maybe more jumping pics will follow soon with that news!

Jocelyn said...

I would of killed myself even attempting these pictures...so, I have to say very impressive:-)

emily said...

Very nice Tara! We had a little Christmas party here with our very close friends and we somehow ended up having a hurkie (sp?) contest. I didn't win. I'm so thankful that a camera wasn't involved:)

Jen said...

lol- a.k.a. "lots of laughing"

I miss you. I wanna have fun with you...

I remember one time when I got all enthused to show Emma stuff I did on the monkey bars when I was in school. I couldn't even get my body to swing once around. It was so freakin' painful.

Ben and I are trying to start exercising again. It's been quite a while...

I'm going to think of something fun to take pictures of. You just wait.

what other random thought can I stick in here?

Erica said...

Okay I got SO excited because I thought maybe - just maybe you were doing all of this to tell us just HOW happy you were and you had your referral!

When I realized it wasn't I just wanted to come hang out with you because you SO have to be one of the FUNNEST (yep - best word ever) people on planet earth!

Craig & Cindy said...

Ted and Lori said...

Thanks SO MUCH for the prayers. That last "pins and needles" post is nothing compared to life now.
These pictures are awesome. Makes me want to try this out in our backyard.

Kaydub said...

Really, you guys could make money at this - make it a video called "celebration exercise"! A great work out with only a few pulled muscles. I think this could work. Seriously. : )

Am I going to be the first to say this? You guys are such nerds. It's beautiful.

Kristy -Mom to 4 and soon to be more! said...

You know, part of me will be sad to see you get your referral...no more funny, witty blog posts! :-) I am sure that baby pictures posted all over the place will easily make up for it!
Here's hoping foe that phone call ANY DAY NOW!
Blessings,
Kristy

crazy thorne's said...

You are so funny. I cant wait to see what you will post when you get your referral. God willing that post will be this week. Blessings, Pam

Rebecca said...

You're funny :)

At first, I thought you were celebrating News!!

the albertsons said...

I am obsessively checking your blog. And praying for you. Can't wait to see more jumps... for joy!
becca :)

Lisa said...

You guys are the biggest nerds I know. Seriously. Thats way nerdier than anything we ever did in high school, even the gymnastics routine in your front yard. I'm pretty sure you're still doing the same moves though...

Kimberly Baggett said...

Can I please say that you are too funny?! I thought you had received your referral! Sorry you are sore now but I bet it was worth it!

HeidiD in CT said...

You fooled us all! very cool moves, but maybe not as high as you'll jump when you are jumping for referral joy? hang in there!

Kristy -Mom to 4 and soon to be more! said...

I keep checking and you're still jumping! :-)
I'm hoping to see that you are jumping for joy real soon!
Blessings,
Kristy

Stacie said...

OK - I totally thought I commented on this post. I just was looking through b/c I was going to say something else, but I guess my first comment didn't happen. Well, it was REALLY funny anyway. And, it is cracking me up every time I come back to stalk, I mean visit, that your jumping face is the first thing I see! Hilarious! Now, can we see a baby picture soon?

Craig & Cindy said...

"Whilst" is quite easy and breezy to use, no!?! Additionally, It sounds so Shakespearan or something...LOL!
