Disappointing Loses

The first disappointment was the Sader football team. They played as hard as they could, but couldn't come up with a victory. They also lost one of their top players on the first offensive play of the game. He also played both ways, so it was hard to recover from that. We were bummed that we missed it, but had a great time in Minnesota.

There was the second disappointment, the Lions. It was a hard game to watch for me, so I can only imagine what it was like for Chad. There weren't too many obnoxious people giving him grief. He took it in stride and even told Mike to just let him have it. Mike took the subtle approach at letting Chad have it.

Here is one of those obnoxious guys. He was sitting in front of us a couple of rows and there were more than a few times that all of us wanted to either tell him to shut up or hit him.

After the game we headed back to Mike's brother's house and just hung out some more. It was a short getaway, but well worth it. Chad had a great time at the game and I'm sure that he blog about it when he gets the chance.The girls did just great with great aunt Kathy (or Kappy as Maddie says). There were a few tears from Maddie when we got back, it was like then she realized that we left her. So a big thank you to Kathy and Dave and the rest of the Wilde's for watching the girls. We got home last night around 5. The girls liked being back at their own house.

Besides the game it was fun to just hang out with Jana and Mike. We got to see Jill and Jay while we were there and even managed a couple of hands of cards. We got in Saturday without any problems. It was snowing when we got there and only one runway was open, but it we made it safely. We stayed in for Saturday. Sunday we headed to the game, it was a little chilly walking from the car to the stadium, I realized that I need to make sure I have a scarf for Christmas.

Chad is doing a baseball clinic this weekend. I am thinking that maybe the girls and I will head to the zoo since it is suppose to be in the high 70's. We have a little over two weeks until we head home. We are getting ready for that. I am done with Christmas shopping and wrapping. We will be having Texas Christmas on the 15th, so that will be the beginning of all the celebrations for us.

Now that football is over, we will be moving onto basketball for just over a month before baseball starts. Christian is playing basketball this winter, so I'm sure we will be at some of his games.
