Whew, December was busy, busy month for us!  C had a work conference that we attended. We had several trips to celebrate the holidays with family and friends, and C & I had one special day that was just for us.

As you can tell from previous posts, I am a HUGE University of Kentucky sports fan!  Always have been, always will be.  I suppose it comes from growing up in a family of UK fans. It is in my blood!  C & I got to attend 2 football games this fall, a first for both of us.  It was great fun and I loved every minute of it, but I really, really wanted to go to a basketball game as well.  It had been over 15 years since I had been to one, and even then, the atmosphere at the games was incredible!  Now, with a new coach and an undefeated season (so far), I knew it would be worth it!

C’s cousin’s wife is a senior at UK, and we asked if she could get us tickets.  She did!  We went December 23rd and it was sooo much fun!

The Wildcat mascot was all decked out for Christmas.


Fireworks are set off during the player introductions.


The tip-off!


The UK cheerleaders have earned multiple national championships in their own right.

We had a great time and might have to go back just one more time!!!  After the game, we rounded out our “party” day by going to the movies to see “Avatar” in 3-D.  What an experience!  Neither one of us had ever seen a movie in 3-D in a theater.  It was breathtaking!  The movie itself was good and the 3-D effects just made it that much better.
