Are You Ready For Some Football??!

SSSOOOOO....after all of the presents were opened, I found a few that were hidden...I passed them out...and this is what was inside...


It was so very exciting!

After the fun of opening the tickets...we jumped in the car and headed to the stadium!

A friend of the family, Diana, joined us...she was so very excited as this was her FIRST football game that didn't involve the WCHS Wildcats!

Colin (a cardinals fan) & Brendan (a cowboys fan) anxiously waiting to get into the stadium

Colin, Diana, Ryan & Brendan ready for kick off

Half of us were rooting for the Cardinals & half were rooting for the Cowboys

It was a GREAT game!

The Cardinals scored their first 2 touchdowns on interceptions...here they are celebrating one of their scores

OK...I may be married...and I may be a mother...BUT #19 is so very YUMMY!
(don't you think?!)

We were pretty high up...but we had great seats; able to see everything!

The end zone

Right up until the last second of the game...it was E.X.C.T.I.N.G.
We thought Dallas was gonna pull it out with a win, but with less than 4 seconds left on the clock, the Cardinals kicked a field goal for the WIN!
Tiff & Ryan were a bit sad about the outcome!

Great pictures, I especially like the family pic in front of the field. That was a great present for your football lovin' family. Do I sense a tradition maybe starting? :)

How fun!!! My aunt and her family were also at the game! HA! She has a house in McKinney but all but her middle duaghter live in AZ! So they thought they would spend time with their Dallas family via the game, ha! She was texting us the whole time.
We actually live right across from Cowboy headquarters, so we see them all the time!

Now that is the coolest Christmas present ever. And can I tell you how happy I was that the Cardinals pulled out the victory?!?!?!?

Great recap. So glad you all had fun. What a gift...those are the best kind. Kindof like Wicked. FAbulous! They are fun and full of memories.

What a fun trip for the whole family! I love all of the pictures. I gotta say- your title made me a wee bit sad. I'm mourning the break in college football. I guess I need to learn to enjoy pro-ball!

Bridget said...

A very cool Christmas present, indeed!!! Glad you all got to go.

OK, so get this. I saw your last post and was thinking "Why in the world is she posting Christmas AGAIN?" Then after reading this post I realized I saw all of these on FB but you hadn't actually written on your blog yet. Hahahaha- sorry for being so brain dead.
