Cowboys vs. Broncos

DH took Halie to the Thanksgiving Day game: Dallas vs. Denver. They were sitting on the 20 yard line with the Cowboys’ Families in front of them. Those two rows of ‘family seating’ was all that separated them from the Cowboys team. Halie was beaming as she came through the door tonight, I spite of the loss of her beloved Cowboys. She was toting a pom-pom of Cowboys colors, and wearing a huge foam finger. Even though Dallas had their biggest fan in their home stadium, they lost 21-24 to the Broncos. Like I said, Halie’s spirit was not dampened in the least. Turns out, she made friends with one of the the players’ kids ( she’s Greg Ellis’s daughter, I believe), and one of the Dallas Cowboys Cheerleaders. The cheerleader and my six year old traded smiles and waves from the sidelines, and Halie danced along with the squad when music came on. When the next quarter of the football game came, the cheerleaders rotated to a different spot, at the other end of the field. Halie was devastated, saying, “Oh No! I can’t find my cheerleader friend!” DH explained how they move around the stadium throughout the football game. “Well, I miss her!”, wailed Halie. One of the male fans nearby, after hearing Halie’s despair, responded by patting her on the back and telling her, “I feel your pain.”

    That is fantastic! I am glad she had such a good time with her daddy. She will never, ever forget that. She looks so sweet.

    Isn’t it neat how kids can make friends with anybody? SugarPlum did that in Ephesus with a shopkeeper’s little girl. And the girl didn’t even speak English! You wouldn’t have known it, though. They played and had fun the whole time we shopped. What a wonderful time Halie had. I’m glad you have such good pictures!

    Sounds like she had a really great time. Amie does the same thing with other kids. She has no problem making friends wherever she goes.
