The reason I was out of town over the weekend for that delightful tea I posted about yesterday was to see my niece/god daughter compete in an intense cheering competition at the Indianapolis Convention Center.

I tell you, there is nothing quite like being around thousands of young girls whose main focus is cheering, haha. It was such a fun thing to do!

I thought I would share a couple of photos - unfortunately they are pretty grainy for a few reasons:

1.) These gals were REALLY moving fast!

2.) It was very dark in there except for the stage, which made strange bedfellows with the auto focus.

3.) I cropped to get up-close because I don't know the girls and didn't have their parents' permission to share photos of their daughters.

But for now, without further ado, check out our Flying Ace!

Amazing, huh?!?
And she only just started cheering in April!

She comes by her talent honestly, though,
from her Momma's side of the family.
 She has a grandpa, her mom, her two Aunts, her first cousin
 and a second cousin who were all cheerleaders.
Guess it isn't a surprise she's such a natural!

I love her beautiful red hair - looks like hot flames rising up in the air!

My niece never stops cheering or jumping or flipping or dancing.
 Ever. I am not kidding, this child is ALWAYS moving!
(And Lord save you if you give her apple juice!)

We're so proud of her and her amazing hard-working team!
This team has another competition in January
 and then in Feb. they compete in Orlando!
