ZOO Lights and Po-Po's

My sweet brother Brody was nice eonough to plan a little double date with him and his beautiful girlfriend Nicole, and also my cousin Cory and his wife Jenna. We went down in the 20 degree weather to the Zoo to look at all the lights. I was a little surprised to not see as many animals as I thought. I don't blame them for not wanting the animals to get cold.. but seriously.. we saw like 4. But we still had a blast walking around and burning our tongues on hot chocolate we couldn't help but drink. It got so cold that we were running post to post where they had tall heater things that you could barely feel the fire. Oh well, what do you do. After we got done at the zoo we headed down and ate at the Macaroni Grill.. I love that place. It was a riot! Of course when you get Nathan, Brody, and Cory together they are funny as heck.. I was laughing so hard all night it made my stomach hurt. I love it when that happens. But the funniest part was when we were driving home. We all had about 10 layers on because it was so cold outside so we had the heat cranked up in the car. Brody was driving and decided he was too hot and started to take off his coat.. about 2 minutes later.. not exaggerating.. 3 cops pull up behind us and turn on their lights. We were just thinking that maybe he sped up a little when he pulled off his coat.. no big deal.. Well, then 2 on each side of the car.. hold up their flashlights to the car, make us roll down all of our windows and put our hands on the front of the seats where they could see them. They then took his license and registration and crap and a couple minutes later they came back to the car and made Brody get out.. A couple more minutes went by and Brody came back laughing.. I guess they had 3 calls about a suburban drunk driving.. What? Yep.. thats us.. It was awesome..

My New Nativity..and my crazy Fam..

Ok so I got it last year for Christmas but this is the first year I got to put it up so Im super excited! And also, its a little late but my family has a tradition of jumping in the pool on Thanksgiving day. So here is the pic. We didn't wimp out but Nathan had just injured his foot and I had the stomach flu so we skipped jumping in this year.. There was still ice in the pool.. and we tested it at 35 or 36 degrees I think.. Crazy Kids..

This post is to apologize for the last post that aparently seemed a little more explicit than I intended. Blogging life is a little bit of a challenge, because obviously, sometimes you write things that are meant to be read one way, but when someone else reads it they think of something else. So I apologize to any of you that I offended in writing it and I mostly apologize to Nathan for having to put up with all the crap that became of it. I promise to be more careful when I blog.
P. S. This is all meant to be read in a happy, sincere, innocent tone of voice. :)
