An Ellie Funny

Ellie and Reid's mom in for a minute....

Friday night we went to the home football game. This makes Ellie's day. She LOVES going to football games. Not because she loves football....no, she goes for the band, majorettes, and cheerleaders. She is mesmerized by them all. So, we hauled the family to the game and Ellie was just thrilled. She and Reid were both so good. We knew that the kids would not last the whole game, so we decided that I would take the kids home after the halftime show. So, about midway into the first quarter (after much cheering by Ellie and her pom poms that she took with her), Ellie looks over at me and asks, "Mommy, are these the Red Riding Hoods?" I laughed so hard, I could barely see through the tears that were streaming from my eyes. I had her ask her question to Brian as well. Ellie leaned way over towards Brian and asked, "Daddy, are these the Red Riding Hoods?" Not only did Brian hear her question, but so did many around us because Ellie wanted to make sure that Brian heard her, so she would get an answer. There were giggles and smiles all around us. Many of you can't find the humor in this story. We were there cheering on our football team....THE RED RIDERS. Not, the Red Riding Hoods. Close....but not quite! Hope you got a chuckle this morning!
