Our Little Cheerleader

Dearest Lily,

Tonight was a first for you...

Photobucket

..your first Beaver's basketball game!!

We got you all dressed up in your OSU cheerleader's outfit...

Photobucket

...and you knew just what to do!!

Photobucket

You were mesmorized by that sea of orange and black...

Photobucket

...and you had so much fun with your biggest brother Jason....

Mackenzie had four tickets, so she took Jason, Josiah, Mama and you. You loved the noise, the game, the fans, but most of all....

Photobucket

...THE POPCORN!!!

I think you ate half the bucket.

I had so much fun with you ...I think I enjoyed watching you more than I did watching the Beavers lose almost beat the Bears!


Photobucket

We were winning the entire first half.

Wait- is it "halves" in basketball? Or is that just football? (Shhhh...Mama's an ex-cheerleader- we don't know the rules, we just scream when our team is winning!)

I know exactly why we started losing in the second half.

The Beavs lost their best cheerleader....

Photobucket

You were pretty worn out with all the excitement of everything.

Sissy and I thought you were the sweetest cheerleader there...even in your sleep...

Photobucket

When we got home, you decided to show the rest of your siblings what a great cheerleader you were...

Okay, so maybe we need to work on your moves a little more, but I think you have the "cute" part down!!

Photobucket

I love you, baby girl!!

Always yours,

Mama oxox

Lils, you are by far the cutest cheerleader in the whole wide world. Great pictures, once again, Kenzie.

"but Patti you look so pretty and young to be so wise."

Pat, I got two words for you...photoshopped.

Cathy said...

Adorable post...adorable baby girl!

Patti said...

Race- look at your profile pic...talk about photoshopped!!

nicole said...

Race's profile is photoshopped? Ironic considering he's all about "justice" and "truth" ~ where's the transparency?

Ashley said...

These pictures are so cute! I'm glad you all had a great time. I know I say this all of the time, but I miss you all so much! *MUAH*
I'm tempted to fly to Oregon for the summer hehe

Katy said...

Oh my word--she is so beyond beautiful, how can you stand it??? Love all the pics.

Naomi Rice said...

That outfit is to die for!! I want one for Kaysea!!

Anonymous said...

She definitely has the "cute" part down!! Your daughter, Kenzie, looks SO much like you. Beautiful women in the Rice family!!! How fun for you all. Love, Cara

Rebecca said...

Wonderful photos! :)

Scott said...

Race- gonna have to teach you how to count bro! Photoshopped = one word!

Patti- love the pictures. They really tell a story. REALLY wish the Beavs beat the Bears!!!

Antoinette said...

What a sweet little cheerleader she is. You can't get any cuter than that!!

Kelly Marin said...

Adorable! Really Adorable

Lisa said...

Oh, Lily. The only way you could be cuter is if you were a Spartan wearing Michigan State green and white. But I can overlook that... especially with how over-the-top cute you are :)

Ilisa Ailts said...

She sure does have the cute part down. I could kiss her with her tongue out and belly exposed!

Awww! That is such a sweet and heartfelt letter for Lily. She is such an adorable little girl, and she deserves all the love in the world. Anyway, it seems that she really enjoyed her first Beavers game. She even brought home her happiness and excitement. I can't even begin to say how cute she looks in that cheer uniform. She really got that department down. Hahaha! Thanks for sharing that fun day, Patti! All the best to the whole family!
