We rung in the New Year with some great friends. We got a hotel room dowtown and had four other couples join us. It was a blast. We all brought some food and beverages and played poker for a little while and then went up to the huge balcony that overlook Hemisphere Park, where they shoot off fireworks every year. The hotel was hosting a group of retirees who travel all over the U.S. all year long but NYE they spent in San Antonio so it was 8 of us young folks and a whole bunch of retirees. It was quite hilarious but it made the night so much fun!! We are already planning on doing it again next year!
Here are some photos...
The hotel had a huge movie screen on the roof above the pool and cabana. We all sat on the balcony for a while watching old black and white Elvis movies...it was fun!
Jennifer (in the middle) got us all tiaras and horns!! I'm on the left, Jennifer's in the middle and Stephanie is on the right!

The guys playing pokerBlake, me, Billy, Jennifer, Stephanie and Courtney and Robert...this was up on the balcony. It was very cold as you can tell by Courtney's face
So, our NYE was fun.
I think it was the second weekend in January when we made a trip to College Station for the LSU vs. A&M basketball game. My dad's cousin John is the head basketball coach at LSU and since he was going to be only 3 hours away he got us tickets to the game. We drove up to CS with mom and dad and Laura and Chris met us there. It was a lot of fun!!
Here are some pics...
Okay, we HAD to go to Cenare's THE BEST Italian food restaurant EVER. I used to work there when I lived in College Station. It's owned by a cute Italian couple...you have to go if you are ever in town.
Dad wanted a Calzone, from next door, Mr. G's Pizzaria. Mr. G is the husband of the lady who owns Cenares. The waiter said it was a "meal" size calzone. I guess we didn't hear him when he said "A meal for 25 people." Acutally, he didn't say that at all. When it came we were all surprised at the size of this thing!!
Me and my sister Laura at the LSU game. John got us very good tickets. We sat right behind the team with the only other LSU fans there...about 10 of us total. The other fans were family members of the players.
Blake and me at the game...John coaching his team...
