During Thanksgiving Break we went to the football game. It was a nice night and we watched the Broncos complete an undefeated season.

Haley and Angelie came and Peter made it too!

Tyler is the best ball boy ever, and my gramps and dad are the best fans.

Study Break

Chad has been working super hard in school so a few weeks ago, before it started getting too cold I took Chad to Ste Chapelle and we had a picnic overlooking the vineyards. The jumping picture was a challenge this time but after about 15 trys (no joke) we came up with this.

Flashback time!

I put these pictures up much to the dismay of Chad! Last month Chad came and worked another dance with me. The theme had something to do the with 80's so we did a quick timed picture of ourselves. Im happy every single day that I got to marry a man like Chad, even if he did have a mullet and wore white tennis shoes with dress pants. Love you Chad!

Decision '08

Along with the election decision Chad and I have been trying to decide what we are going to be doing come January and the decision has been made!!

We will be moving to Phoenix, AZ where Chad will be working as a Project Engineer for McCarthy Construction.

We will be sad to leave family but will not deny we are looking forward to warm weather!

Halloween Happenings

To start our Halloween Week off, we had FHE with my family and carved our pumpkins. Chad and I are enjoying spending our first Holidays together!

Everyone with their finished products!!!
All week my mom helped us make our costumes! Isn't she amazing?? We went as Nacho libre and Incarnacion. On Halloween day, I worked and Chad went to school. That night we went to dinner with Joel and Chelsea and then played games for a while. We called it a night early because on Saturday Chad got to take an 8 hour test!!!! Later that night we went to a Halloween party and had some fun! Thanks Tab, Kasha, and Jen- it was awesome!

We danced a lot of the night, Chad had a LOT of fun role playing Nacho!

Chad seems to be winning a lot lately but he won the Funniest costume award! And I had to throw the other picture in: it is Aaron, Melissa, the triplets and Tanner. They went as Snap, Crackle and Pop. Aaron was milk, Melissa the spoon and Tanner the strawberry! Good work guys.

Fall Days = Busy Days

Where has the month of October gone? Life has been crazy here at the Zwygart household. If Chad and I are both home on the same weekend it is a blessing. I have been working a lot at Dorian. It was homecoming season so every Saturday night I spent at a high school dance. One weekend Chad was able to come cashier for me, it was super fun to have him on the job! I also traveled a couple of times one weekend to Tri-Cities and another to Seattle to work in their branches up there. Chad on the other hand has been going crazy with school. It seems like he just finished his mid-term tests and it is already time for the next ones. On top of that interview time has come. A few weekends ago Chad interviewed with a company in San Francisco. He enjoyed the beach but we did not receive that job. Then this last weekend he flew to Pheonix and interviewed there and we are waiting to hear back. While there the company rented a race track for the evening- Chad won first place and then was able to hook up with an old buddy, Roger before flying home. We have a lot of decisions to make! We would LOVE to stay in Boise but we'll see where life takes us. In what spare time we have we've been enjoying the beautiful fall weather we are having!! We are looking forward to November when we can enjoy some time together and with family.

Ping Pong is a very serious game...

After our afternoon of boating we had a ping pong tournament between couples and also indivduals. As you can tell from the picture we all took this very seriously and kept our game faces on. We had to have something to identify our teams with. Chad and I chose wigs. Also, props to Chad for winning the singles tournament!!

Showing off our tournament prizes & Chad and I after our first win!

Adventures at Lucky Peak

About a month ago (yeah I am really slow at posting things!) My friend George came to town for a visit. As luck has it, I had the Saturday off which isn't common! We started our day by going boating with her sister and brother-in-law. We knew it was going to be a little cold at the lake but we got something better than cold water...About a 1/2 hour into the trip a nice storm came up over the dam, bringing heavy rain, wind, thunder and lightning. We decided we better get off the lake ASAP seeing as we didn't want to die. So we took the boat out waited the storm and of course got back in. We were going to enjoy some hot chocolate but Kaley only brought hot water!

Here we are all sharing a little poncho trying to make it to the dock.

All we did was surf. In the picture on the left I was about to throw the rope into the boat but was busy singing along with "Good Fight" by Dashboard and crashed right after the pic was taken.

Casino Night

Last weekend Chad's sister threw a "Casino Night" party. It was a blast! Chad and I learned how to play (with all the real rules) Texas Hold Em', Roulette, Craps and Blackjack. Everyone was given the same amount of chips when they arrived and could gamble the night away. Lots of people came dressed up. Some did the 70's style (including us) and some played the high roller scene- there really wasn't any rules to dressing up it just made the night a lot more exciting and fun! Below are Chad's sisters- Ruth and Katie aka Bunny and Red and Jeremy and Rick- I forgot their casino names.
One pic shows our luck at the craps table and also Chad dealing for the Roulette table- "No more Bets"!! And Peter even made it up from VEGAS for the party! All in all it was a great night for "SHOW ME THE MONEY!!" Thanks Tabitha and Andrew!

End of Summer

Well we made it through our first summer together! Life is awesome. We have left Fort Collins, CO and have moved back to Boise. We are living in a small apartment across from BSU. Chad is loving that because he can walk to school and work for his last semester. I am currently working for Dorian Studio photographing school pictures and sports for them. We'll see what comes up next. Anyway, during all the getting ready to move, moving and removing I slacked A LOT on the blog! So here is an update of the last days of our summer:
1. We made it to visit Aaron and Melissa and our new nephew Tanner! We had some fun doing family pictures and of course ones of the triplets! (for more of those visit Aaron and Melissa's blog!) Thanks guys for letting us crash and play Rock Band. Hopefully we'll make it down soon!

2. Chad took me down to his hometown of Glenwood, UT! It was awesome for me to be able to put a picture to all of his stories, and see where he grew up. We also were able to see Chad's Dad and step mom. This trip was complete with a stop to Ideal Dairy where we picked up a childhood treat for Chad and his family.

3. We were able to make it to the Twin Falls, ID temple open house. It is a beautiful building and was a neat experience.

4. Over Labor Day weekend we went to my grandparents cabin with my family. Besides the cold weather we had a great time playing and relaxing. These pictures are of our adventures with the pedal boat. We crossed the lake with my sisters and made that awesome sand castle. As we were getting ready to leave we noticed that our boat had floated away! It is that little blue speck in the water. My mom and Grandma I guess, noticed from the cabin window and were laughing at us forever! We were clueless

5.We also went to the Colorado Springs Zoo where Chad had a business meeting in the morning and we got to feed giraffes in ths afternoon. Cool huh?

6. Sarah Jeppson and her family were in Vail, CO and I was able to go spend the day with them. It was super fun. We had an adventurous hike and then rode the ski lift to the top at night. The view was gorgeous!

7. My family came to visit us in Fort Collins. We had a lot of fun doing a lot of hikes in the park, celebrating my birthday, hitting up the drive in movie, playing rummy all night, and enjoying a friendly tennis game! They also helped me pack and drove Chad's car home. You guys are the best!

8. And last but not least, for the last two summers Chad and some friends have been renting a cabin for the weekend in McCall, so this year I got to come along. We played games, went swimming and did the "cliff" hike (picture on the left) and then Chad and I snuck away one night and found this amazing hot spring.

We do have friends!

So we have made friends with our next door neighbors, the Blads. Last weekend we went up to the park and did a hike then roasted some mallows with them! Eden, their youngest daughter, is starting to warm up to Chad. Too bad we are leaving in two weeks! It was fun to take the girls to the waterfall- they have been living in a small town in Arizona and had never seen one before.
