It's the most wonderful time of the year

Yes, it's football season and all is right with the world! Peyton and I have watched our fair share of games today but I have to admit that it just wasn't the same without David here! And the reason he wasn't here...he covered the OU-BYU game tonight at Cowboys Stadium. (Poor Sooners lost 14-13!!) It was the first "real" football game in the new stadium and while he rarely works weekends, he couldn't miss the opportunity to go to the game and watch it from the sidelines. He even made the national telecast on ESPN when the OU quarterback Sam Bradford had to leave the game with a shoulder injury. ESPN got a clear shot of David shooting Sam heading into the locker room. The boys and I thought it was pretty cool to see him on national TV. Of course we see him almost every night here from KXII, but this was a totally different setting!

Of course the most exciting game wasn't televised but we watched it on the computer. Our Baylor Bears played a great game against Wake Forest and although the score ended up with our Bears winning 24-21, the Bears were in control the entire game. The score doesn't reflect the great game play by Baylor. I'm praying this means BU is going to be more of a contender than they have been in the past 15-20 years! LOL!!

We also got to spend some time today with some new friends. We welcomed the Shirley family to Sherman. Drew Shirley is the new weekend anchor at KXII and his wife Jennifer and sons Jay & Luke are so sweet. We didn't actually get to meet Luke because we dropped in during his nap time, but our boys loved playing with Jay's toys and Jennifer and I had a good time getting to know one another. We're so glad they're here and can't wait to introduce them all to more of our friends.

Tomorrow we head to Allen to celebrate our niece Emma's birthday. It will be another fun day with family!! And then we still have the Monday holiday to look forward to!
