Eliza the Cheerleader

I'm not sure how the idea came to Eliza, but she suddenly announced she needed a cheerleading uniform. I think the obvious explanation is that she saw cheerleaders on television when Becca and I were watching a football game, thought the cheerleaders were pretty, and immediately decided she needed a new outfit. Regardless of how she came to this conclusion, the fact of the matter is that obtaining a cheerleading costume has been a goal of Eliza's for some time now.

In fact, a couple of weeks ago, Nathan and I tried to appease her cheerleading costume desire by buying her a BYU t-shirt. This is how it went:
If you can't clearly see her expression, I'll just let you know she is scowling at her reflection. She is obviously not amused. She repeatedly told me, "I wanted to be a cheerleader! I didn't want to wear a shirt!"

Well, I am happy to inform you that Eliza's prayers (she literally prayed for it all the time) were answered today. Her Papa sent her some birthday money, and she decided all she wanted was the costume (of course). I was happy to send these pictures to my dad. He really got her the perfect gift!
