~School's out for the winter!~

I officially don't have to work for two weeks and I can't wait to party! This month has been crazy with birthdays, Christmas parties, etc.  Here are a few pictures of the past 20 days! The pictures at the bottom are a Christmas party I went to at Zermatt Resort up in Midway.

~One Year Older~

Well, it's official.  I think I am the worst " blogger"out there.  My life is so busy and I never have time to update, but here are a few things as of late.  My birthday was on December 2nd and it was a PERFECT day! I went to work, my mom and sister took me to lunch, then they brought my whole class rootbeer floats.  They were such a hit with the kindergarteners!  When I got home I decided I needed a little pampering so I got a manicure and a pedicure.  Then, that night I went to dinner with my mom and sisters at Macaroni Grill.  We always do the girl thing on my birthday.  We had a blast with no kids! I got to celebrate my birthday for almost a whole week-thanks to family and friends! It was a good 24th birthday! (Can you believe I'm that old?) Sheesh! Where does time go??? My pictures aren't uploading right now, but I will post some soon!

~I think hell froze over~

Because I GOT A NEW CAR!!! I never thought the day would come when I was able to buy myself a new car! (It's used, but new to me!) No more Audi.  I'll admit, it wasn't really a sad day when I got rid of my old car. Thank you new job! (Sorry I just have to be a bit prideful for a minute because most of you know the lovely car I was driving before).

~Halloween Party Time!~

Every year, our family does a little Halloween party.  My amazing "chef" mother made homemade chili and minestrone soup.  Yummy!

~She said YES! ~

Last weekend, Jared proposed to my sister Mindy at the top of a mountain in Zion called "Guardian Angel."  Doubt there is a better name of a mountain to get proposed to than this!  We are so excited to have him be a part of our family and we are so happy for you two!  Congratulations Mindy and Jared!

Not suitable for kindergarten...

I just have to share this story, (I know most of you have heard it, but it's too funny not to post).  If any of you are familiar with this book, you'll know what I'm talking about.  Each page goes through an animal "brown bear brown bear what do you see" etc. etc.  At the end of the book, there is a page that says "teacher, teacher, what do you see".  My students were assigned to draw a picture of me, their teacher.  One little boy in my class said "teacher teacher, look! I drew a picture of you! I drew your nipples!" (he drew a picture of me with green nipples.  Yes I was in shock but had to quickly turn my head so he wouldn't see the tears rolling down my face from laughter.  You probably wondered what I did next...I just ignored it and pretended like it didn't happen because honestly, I had no idea what to even say to that! I hope you get a good laugh like I did!

Just a funny thought for the day...

As many of you know, I teach all-day kindergarten.  Every day I have great stories to tell.  Today, I was really getting sick of dealing with tattling. I decided to ask my class if they knew who the president was.  The responses I got were "God", "President Monson", etc. Findally someone said Barack Obama.  I got on the internet, turned on my projector screen so they could all see and pulled up a picture of Barack Obama.  I posted the picture and said: from now on, unless your bleeding or barfing, I don't want to hear it! I printed the picture and put it on one of our walls.  Now, whenever they tattle, I tell them to "go tell the president". I was really interested to see their response when I actually told them that.  One little girl walked up to me and proceeded to tattle. My hand stopped her and I told her to "go tell the president".  She stormed over to the picture and stopped, a little embarrassed she turned her head and looked at me. I think she got the hint. She was pretty embarrassed so maybe she will stop tattling-along with the rest of my class!

Welcome to my blog!

Hello everyone! So I decided to take the plunge and start my own blog! Not really sure what I'm doing yet, but hopefully I will be able to figure it out!
