Our Little Cheerleader

I have to admit that we are not huge football fans in our house. However, I always try to root for one of the teams during the superbowl. This year the Colts and the Bears are in the Superbowl. Granted I have no big ties to either team....which has made me think that I need to find out more about the teams:). I have followed a Caringbridge page for a little boy named Donovan http://www.caringbridge.org/in/babydonovan/. The family LOVES the Colts. I have always had a smile on my face as I read how much they love their little Donovan....and their amazing Colts. Little Donovan, just 2 years old, earned his angel wings the day before the colts played their last game. I honestly feel that they won that game (just barely....at the end) just for Baby D. So, a part of me really wants to root for the Colts.

HOWEVER, the other day we were in the basement sorting through Emma's clothes (ones she has outgrown....and upcoming hand-me-downs). She reached into a box and pulled out a dress. She INSISTED on putting it on. When I looked at it again. I realized it was a BEARS cheerleading outfit. Apparently Miss Em has her own team that she plans on rooting for. AND, it looks like she has found her true calling in life (Aunt Beck....she wants YOU to be her agent). I'm thinking that she will go far with this career move.

Here she is practicing her dance moves:

Here she is working on her "girlish figure":

Then, she MUST practice her posing for all of those photo shoots:

Who could say no to this sweet face...with all of the beautiful hair:

So, it looks like our houshold will be split this year on who should win the Superbowl. I would still like the Colts to win.....for the honor of Baby D. However, my little Bears cheerleader does make it difficult not to think about the Bears as a possibility. So, I guess that I will be happy either way!!!

What lovely pictures and she poses for them so well. It must be a joy to take her picture because the camera loves her so much.

Way to go Em. I am DA BEARS fan from my younger days and am beaming with pride seeing her shake her groove thing. Em, I will always be your agent no matter what the occupation. GO BEARS!!!!

Emma is just TOO cute! I don't know who we'll root for on Sunday. Not sure we'll even watch the game. Silly me!
