The lowdown on the hoedown~!








OK, I think MAMA can STILL ROCK~! A glass of fermented grape juice and I was away...There is something about leading up to an event that gets a household buzzing. Wake up early, cook and prepare, early shower time...clothes carefully selected get placed in position on the bed in every room. A little make up, a flick of the hair and a spray of something nice and scented. Well, ..Ready and set to go. Music is playing and getting you into the mood for whats to come. The children are excited and the week long countdown arrives. We welcomed our guests with a night path lit up with brown paper lanterns. Our big courtyard tree held big and small red, white and blue tissue paper flowers the children and their friends made. My Brother and his guitar playing friend treated us to some awesome country singing. Brogan got the girls going with her well practised dancing routine by Hannah Montana's country song 'Hoedown throw down' . Do forgive the nighttime photography. For someone passionate about taking photo's, I fail dismally clicking in the dark! We really had a fantastic evening..Thanking all family friends and our neighbors for spending the evening with us~

Suzanne~The music was so inspirational. I am here in Kentucky and watched as Matt and Ari opened up the gifts. My heart is so touched by your kindness and the beautiful gifts! I turned to your blog and the music is bringing back so many great memories of my precious girl. Thank you for being a part of both our lives, dear friend. I love you, Susan

You know, somehow I have a feeling you will be rocking for a long, long time. You have that vitality and playfulness about you. Wish we could have been there! You must all have had such a happy, happy evening. The children especially!
