Annie & I were in the car & she said, "Pretend I am a teenager." "Okay." "Mom can I go to the football game tonight?" "Of course honey...do you have your pom poms & your cheerleader skirt?" "Mom!!! I am PLAYING football!"
Of course...I should have known! Annie has been to many, many football games and she can tell you her favorite player, although it may surprise you. Her favorite professional football player is none other than her Auntie Cake!
I am not talking Powderpuff here...I am talking full on tackle, huddle up, buttslapping, professional women's football!
She is an Offensive Tackle & let me tell you ...the girl is good.
She was even this years MVP!!!
Check out her trophy.
How cool is that!
She has a ton of fans:
Both sides of the family (with all our signs),
Sweet Blue bird & her friends,
Her Captain Awesome who is gonna kill me for this picture of him goofing off,
But hey it is way better than this picture,
Still goofing around but I think he will like that one better. He helps out with the balls during the game. And he coaches the kids' game during half time.
His team always wins.
Anyway, back to her fan list...Bo,
Of course her own mom& her Nature girl,
Both her sisters,
Rach, Kate, & me
& Rocco even attended her game less than a month old!
She is inspiring little girls everywhere!
But her biggest fans are...
Big Fireman & Little Fireman
Big Fireman watches every game.
And she even has real fans who aren't related :) This was her first autograph & I was lucky enough to be there to snap the pic.
And of course they needed a pic with her too :)
So you see my glitter loving, pink wearing, cupcake baking, mom of 4, blogging, sister...Auntie Cake's secret is out of the bag. Kate is the toughest lineman in the league ~ Just ask the girl who she was blocking from Toledo...she said, and I quote..."Everytime you tackled me I would think in slow motion, 'Here I am flying through the air again'. And then I would land with a thud. You are tough."
Yeah...not many girls can say..."My big sister is a professional football player." But I can!
