Week in Review (Ending 12/2/2007)

Last week there was not update as much of Frisco took the week off to celebrate their Thanksgiving holiday.  My family went to Columbus, Tx to visit Dana’s Dad.  He is a cattle rancher and I look forward to getting out to the country.  We always come back refreshed after spending a weekend in the slower paced environment.  We did have a scare with my daughter Kaytlin.  She got sick Friday night and we end up spending 18 hours in the emergency room.  Thankfully, she is okay.  We did have to miss Matt & Erika Lafata’s wedding.  Congrats guys and sorry we missed it!

Thursday 

Things started picking up again this Thursday.  On Thursday, I visited with Allison Miller, Director of the Frisco Education Foundation, and Jake and Vinita Reed of the Frisco Thunder.  We discussed fundraising ideas for the Foundation by giving away ticket proceeds to the Foundation.  Next year, because of the expansion of the Dr. Pepper Stars Center, they will have to play 7 straight home games followed by 7 straight road games.  The arena expansion will begin immediately after their last home game.

Friday

This afternoon I attended a celebration of the funding of the 121 proceeds. Frisco’s stance on 121 was a long and bitter battle but likely resulted in the project remaining with NTTA rather than being sold to Cintras.

Tonight we took the family to the Texas Tornado game.  They are having a rough season this year but my family always enjoys going.  The highlight od the evening is always chuck-a-puck after the end of the 2nd period.

Saturday

Wow! Today was a busy day in Frisco.  We started the morning at the Breakfast with Santa event at the new Frisco Athletic Club.  After my kids told Santa what they wanted, we rushed to my youngest boy’s soccer game in the Colony.  It was his first soccer game as that was the first league that we found would allow a 3 year old to play in.  Later that night we enjoyed the Merry Main Street even and street lighting.  The good weather had the place packed!  We actually got on the train this year as we went there as soon as it opened.  My kids were so disappointed last year when we were unable to get on.  This years event was wonderful and I especially liked seeing the new fountain in action.
