Just a few of my favorite moments:
*The girls distrust of the Ranger's pitcher, C.J. Wilson. They were not impressed with his haircut. Alexi Ogando got their ok.
*Emma's emotion at Pujols being walked. Her face was priceless, a look of total shock. Followed by jumping on her chair and shouting "WHAT??? COME ONNNNNN!!!" And then Eleanor's "I knew I didn't like him "( the pitcher that is).
*Eleanor's constant reminder , "Emma, this is just one game, there will be more."
*Emma trying to help Ellie say Pujolis. El pronounces it Pull-horse. Emma would, as patiently as she could, say Pujols, slowly. El would then say "yea, Pulllll-hoooorse". Finally, totally exasperated Emma said, just call him Albert.
As I was putting the girls to bed Emma said "mom, people are saying the Rangers are a better team, but I don't think they have our heart. I hope when they go to Texas they can look out and see just a little bit of red and remember we're all cheering". My own little birdo.
