New Year's Eve
After babysitting the Allen boys all day I got ready to head to St. Elizabeth. Mike and I celebrated our New Year's at their local bar. It was good to see everyone that we haven't seen in a long time.
New Year's Day
A typical day at the Holtmeyer house never ends up in me sleeping late! Got up at 7:30 and started playing the Wii with Mike and his brother Randy until it was time to eat dinner. After dinner Mike and I headed back downstairs to play the Wii again. As you can tell it is very addicting especially trying to beat your score or Wii age. I managed to go from being 80 to 67 in Wii years, hopefully I can get that number down before too long. Pretty sad in my opinion!! :o)
Later that evening we headed to Mike's aunt Delores' house for a mini Christmas / New Year's dinner since not everyone was able to make it on Christmas Day. For dinner we had lasagna, roast beef, mashed potatoes, salad and green beans. Once everyone was done eating and cleaning up we watched Shay and Kylie open up their Christmas presents before heading back to my house.
Got the opportunity to sleep in and loved it! That afternoon Mike and I headed to St. Anthony to the tavern where his dad was frying fish. Ended up staying there until 10 by playing pool, watching the Mizzou game, playing pitch and of course eating fish! Afterwards we headed to Mandy & Lonnie's house to play cards. On our way there Mike and I decided to switch our bibs and surprise them. We had fun and they all got a kick out of it especially since Mike was wearing my pink bibs. Ended up playing pitch there also but this time it was very different, they were playing four point pitch. It was hard to get the hang of it at first and didn't finish our last game until 2 in the morning. Needless to say, we were all ready for that last game to end so we could hit the sack!
