Andrea with one of her turkeys

We had a wonderful Thanksgiving here.  Andrea prepared a truly incredible meal with 2 turkeys, stuffing, mashed potatoes, sweet potatoes, risotto, green beans, and rolls for dinner with cranberry bread pudding and pies for dessert.  We ended up having 15 people, counting us, in the house for dinner and everything went really well.

For the rest of the weekend, Andrea and I went to the CU - Nebraska game, and then went shopping and went to Casa Bonita with her family while I went to Red Lobster with mine on Friday.  On Saturday, we went driving in the mountains and then went to White Fence Farm for dinner.  On Sunday we went to church and then relaxed at home before going to see Mr. Magorium's Wonder Emporium in the evening.  It was a great weekend and a lot of fun.  Andrea truly did a wonderful job cooking her first Thanksgiving dinner and I will be looking forward to the next one.

CU 65 - NU 51

CU 65 - NU 51

Friday morning, Andrea and I got up early and drove up to Boulder in a light snow for the CU-Nebraska game.  It was only the fourth time that I've been to one in person.  The game was a great one as CU came out and took an early lead, but gave it back to Nebraska as they went to the break.  Neither team played anything resembling defense in the first half, but in the second half, CU intercepted the first 2 passes by Nebraska and blocked a punt on a 31-0 run.  The game was absolutely freezing with temperatures around 20 degrees for the whole game, but it was still a lot of fun as CU won 65-51, marking the first time I had ever seen CU beat Nebraska in person.

CU vs. New Mexico

Grandpa, Andrea, and I at the CU-UNM game

Last Friday, Grandpa, Andrea, and I went up to Boulder for the CU-New Mexico basketball game.  We picked up Grandpa at about 4:30 and then we went and had steaks at the Madrid Lounge before heading up to Boulder for the game.  The game marked the first appearance in Boulder by UNM since 1979.  We had all been looking forward to it since Grandpa had gone to UNM games all the time when he lived in Albuquerque, and I grew up a Lobo fan since my dad has had season tickets at The Pit for 30 years.  The game was also the debut for new CU coach, Jeff Bzdelik, and new UNM coach, Steve Alford.

Unfortunately the game was rather painful to watch.  Both teams were clearly thinking a lot as they tried to learn the new coach's system, and it showed.  Neither team shot the ball well, with CU shooting a pitiful 34% for the game.  New Mexico withstood a furious late CU rally to win 54-47 and the difference in the game was clearly the UNM 3-point shooting.  Even though CU lost, we still had a great time and it was a lot of fun to spend the night with Grandpa and to see the Lobos in Boulder.
