Has that song by 'The Pointer Sisters' been going through your head yet? LOL We are family, yeah, I got all my sisters and me.... LOL Seriously, just like my title said - we've got our very own family celebrity and her name is JILL PARR. She's a very talented Christian recording artist with a voice that will just blow you away! Jill lives with her music producer husband & 4 children near Nashville. She and two of her children came up to MI for a visit this week. We enjoyed seeing them soooo much!
I'm gonna throw out a little trivia here. Do you remember the 'Christmas Shoes' song by Newsong? Are you familiar with Nicole C. Mullen? Jill toured with them a few years back. Pretty awesome, huh?
The family party was at the home of Jill's parents. Taylor, Tess & I stayed over after everyone else had left. We ended up sitting outside on the swing talking to Jill until 1 AM!!! (Whoa, am I tired today!) We had a blast catching up and shared a lot of laughs.
These are a couple of covers from Jill's CDs. I would encourage you to check out her music. Here's a link...
Bobby and Jill having some fun singing together...Bobby is very quick-witted and good naturedly makes up funny songs about different family members. (Not anything mean - just pure hilarity - goofy, outlandish stuff - you can't help but laugh!)
From left to right...Tess, Jill, & Taylor. The girls A-D-O-R-E Jill and love it when we get to see her!
Awww, look at us - aren't we all so cute? ha ha ha I love my husband and kids sooooo much :)
Sometimes I'm still amazed at Bobby's musical talent even after all these years. He's never had a piano lesson; yet he can play just about anything. His whole family is like that.
Tess is quite the little singer. She's not shy in front of a crowd or anything! I sure would be :) She definitely takes after her dad!
Tyler - doing one of the things he loves best...jamming on the guitar.
Bobby with his Aunt Pam. (She's also my hairdresser :)
The three 'Singin' Sisters'...their voices blend beautifully together :) My mother-in-law is in the middle.
Bobby's 85 year old grandma went for a ride on the Harley! We teased her about riding off to go get a tattoo :)
...but she didn't come back with one! LOL
Taylor, Tess and me...I feel very loved :)
Mother and son...Bobby enjoys a close relationship with his mom.
We had a really wonderful time at the party. I laughed a lot and it was good for me. I N-E-E-D-E-D to laugh, ya know. Oh, and it was almost kinda like we had us a little church going on, too! ha ha A big group of family members gathered around me to pray about my recent diagnosis...how sweet was that :) Everyone was very loving and supportive of me.
Thanks for peeking in at our little family party...now go listen to some of Jilly's music...go, whatcha waitin' for!
Until next time,
