Our Date at the Zoo

Derek and I went to the zoo while we were in denver...the weather was perfect and it was so fun to see all the animals that we got to see.

Before the pictures I thought that I would update you all. We are done with our internships and student teaching. Real life is about to start..but before it does we are just working as much as our bodies and work will allow us to work. We are just saving up money to get set up before the baby comes seeing how I won't be working for a least. I think I am 32 week-ish..I have decided not to keep track because that just slows things down even more. When we do work we have totally opposite schedules. I will only work in the afternoon because I would probably kill people and be really snotty-its hard to hold my emotions in :) sucks to be everyone else! Then derek will work nights so literally we won't see eachother all day but such is life. Derek, despite his comments, I think is really getting excited. He mostly is probably ready for me not to be pregnant-even though I think I am a good pregnant lady :) We are ready for the wind to stop and the snow to melt in rexburg already-well not with out a few good snowboarding runs for derek. Everything here is just moving along and we are enjoying the holiday season...without further prolonging here are our zoo pictures:

The CUTEST RED PANDA'S EVER!!! They were are just a few months old!

And finally what would be a blog without a goofy picture of ashley's face :)

Well, we have been in Denver since Wednesday. We drove out here and needless to say it was a long drive and I am not looking forward to driving back. Since we have been here I think that I have gotten more and more uncomfortable everyday...I know that I still have ten weekds BUT I am getting to the point that I can't breath AND I have to pee every 30 to 45 minutes. That does get annoying.

We were able to go Christmas Tree Hunting. We thought that the weather was going to be sunny and not very cold...well come to find out little sister, Emily, prayed for snow...and it snowed more than just a little. We went with our neighbors, the Burton's. They have been our neighbors for a long long time.

This is before the weather started turning "frightful."

If the weather is bad we end up finding a Christmas Tree really really fast...Here is the Christmas tree for 2008!
I was late getting a video of our tree getting cut down BUT I did get one from the Burtons...Yes I know I am a great videorgrapher-the movie does end up the right way...just tilt your head.

It took all the guys to lift their tree on top of the Burton's pretty cool...

We hope everyone is having a great time wherever you are...enjoy the season as it will unfortunately soon be over. We are having a great time...we are enjoying our few weeks of not really having any commitments and school/work/internships and whatever it may be. Have a great week...we will keep posting throughout the week.
