Fall actually means Football Season in our house! I am not by any means a die-hard football fan. In fact, I really can’t say I watch a lot of football on TV. Quite honestly, I get really bored most of the time. Now, if the Minnesota Vikings are playing an exciting game, I can watch for a bit. But I keep finding my mind thinking about all of the other things I should be doing. Things like organizing my cupboard shelves, cleaning out the cat box…well, you get my drift.
Now, with that being said, my husband loves watching football. He has a setup in the lower level with a 60” TV, a blue-ray player, DVR, surround sound and a stainless steel beer fridge! He goes down there on Saturday afternoons and he comes back up Sunday night.
Last year shortly after we got Rua, I went downstairs and there was Doug, watching the Vikings, anticipating an upcoming deer hunting weekend, and holding Rua. I realized right then and there that I couldn’t let my feelings for football rub off on Rua. She needed to show some true team spirit and root on the Vikings with her Papa.
And yes, I have gone over the deep end a bit when it comes to Rua, I admit it, but how could I not get her a Minnesota Vikings Cheerleader outfit. Actually, I had to make it because I couldn’t find one (I even searched Vikings stores in Minnesota last fall and did some on-line surfing).
So, here is the outfit I made for her:
Here is Rua modeling her outfit:
And, my favorite, Rua and her Papa:
Sew (pun intended) now I guess I am going to have to make Rua a Minnesota Golden Gophers Cheerleader outfit!
That looks so adorable on her!
hey Dori, LOVE LOVE LOVE the cheerleading outfit. So wish we could get a pic of our girls together in their cheer outfits ! That might even be cuter than with Doug… well probably close anyway 🙂 thanks for sharing. xoxox to all
Oh wow- love the outfit and pictures. So glad Rua is a sports fan- gives her time to bond with dad. Hugs to you all!
