This post is dedicated to the my wonderful friends and family who baked goods for the cheer bake sale this weekend. The bake sale is part of our Athletic Council's Homecoming weekend and the proceeds are used to benefit the cheer program of which Lulu has proudly been a part of for 3 seasons now.

If you don't already know, Lulu started cheering several years ago because one of her friends was going to cheer and they thought that they might try it out together. I have to laugh at how this all started out. We actually thought that Lulu might not want to cheer; I actually expected that she wouldn't like cheering. Well, we have tried several sports and activities other than cheering, throughout the years, but she ALWAYS goes back to cheering. Quite simply stated, cheering is Lulu's passion.

This weekend, Lulu cheered at two football games. Here she is cheering on her team! (This is a video.) Lulu is the girl wearing a black/red/white jacket.

We jokingly say that Lulu travels with her own cheering squad, because she has such a large and dedicated fan club family. Here we are, again, lined up to watch her cheer. Pictured from left to right: Dear Husband/Daddy-d, Grandmommy, Grandpa, and Daddy (aka Daddy Warbucks). Present, but not pictured: Fairy Grandmother, Bro, and Mommy.

During the game, Fairy Grandmother shared one of her famous oatmeal raisin cookies with Bro.

The boys were tired of watching the cheerleaders. Dear Husband and Bro snuck off to get a look at some football action.

At half-time, Bro and Co. had to leave because it was past his bedtime. Lulu was sure to give him a big hug and kiss before he left.

Much thanks to our baker family and friends: Fairy Grandmother - oatmeal raisin cookies and rice crispy bars; Top Chef - chocolate chip mint cookies; and Grandmommy - chocolate chip cookies and cupcakes.
