My 9 beautiful babies

I love my preschool class. They are so cute. Teachers aren't allowed to post pictures of their kids or mention their names (oopps about my other post about my kids!) but I want to post an update about them. I have only been in the Butterfly class for 4 months and the kids have changed and developed soo much!

1. Little Sissy: She had her first hair cut a few weeks ago. So cute! She can roll over by herself and sit up on her own. She is teething like crazy and wont take her bottle. However, she is eating cereal and yogurt. She always has the cutest clothes. Her brother always comes to our window to visit her and they are so cute together. I love her mom!
2. Thing 1: She is the older twin. She can roll over on her own. She is eating jar food and cereal. Nothing else has happened with her.
3. Thing 2: She is the younger twin. She can't roll over yet but she can sit up (kinda) on her own. She is eating jar food and cereal.
4. Miss Attention Girl: She is so cute. Ahh I love her. She gets fussy if she hasn't had enough attention. I love when she laughs. She is a gem. She has been able to sit up and roll over on her own.
5. Little Buddha: For 4 months he has been sick. He has had a cough and a stuffy nose. His mom has taken him to the doctor like 5 times but he is still sick. He is super cute. He is perfectly content to sit and play. He has been able to sit up on his own for a while. He is our happy baby. He rarely cries.
6. Momma's Boy: His mom loves him. She loves him a lot. She is always worried that he is sick. Actually she thinks he is always sick. It's a funny relationship. He can crawl around. He is eating lots of jar food and lots of cereal. 
7. Demon Child: He is new in our class!! AHHH! Demon! He loves to cry. He eats all day long. He eats real adult food. It's kinda funny. 
8. Stinky Baby: Her Momma gave her that name. I don't ever see her because she comes 3 days a week and leaves an hour after I get there. She is super cute. She is a really good crawler. She can pull herself up and stand. I want her to walk soon.
9. Indian Demon Child: I don't really want to talk about him. He cries all day every day. 

New Moon

Me, Hilary, Mccall and Parker went to the Nov. 19 9:00 showing of New Moon. Ahh it was so good. So much better then Twilight.

The more things change, the more they stay the same. I'm not sure who the first person was who said that. Probably Shakespeare. Or maybe Sting. But at the moment, it's the sentence that best explains my tragic flaw: my inability to change.

I don't think I'm alone in this. The more I get to know other people, the more I realize it's kind of everyone's flaw. Staying exactly the same for as long as possible, standing perfectly still... It feels better somehow. And if you are suffering, at least the pain is familiar. Because if you took that leap of faith, went outside the box, did something unexpected... Who knows what other pain might be waiting out there. Chances are it could be even worse.

So you maintain the status quo. Choose the road already traveled and it doesn't seem that bad. Not as far as flaws go. You're not a drug addict. You're not killing anyone... Except maybe yourself a little.

When we finally do change, I don't think it happens like an earthquake or an explosion, where all of a sudden we're like this different person. I think it's smaller than that. The kind of thing most people wouldn't even notice unless they looked at us really, really close. Which, thank goodness, they never do. But you notice it. Inside you that change feels like a world of difference. And you hope this is it. This is the person you get to be forever... that you'll never have to change again.

I have been reading past conference talks as I try to figure out what the heck is going on in my life. I was reading this morning and this one stuck out to me...

Here is my summary:

Faith in Jesus Christ
Elder Kevin W. Pearson

-Faith is a 1. principle and 2. an action of power
-There is no other foundation in life that can bring the same peace, joy, and hope as faith can.
-Faith is a gift of God bestowed as a reward for personal righteousness.
-Faith and fear cannot coexist.
-6 things that get rid of faith:
1. doubt
2. discouragement
3. distraction
4. lack of diligence
5. disobedience
6. disbelief
-Challenging times require greater spiritual power and faith.

the end.

Freaky Friday

Today is Friday the 13th. Spooky. My classroom at preschool was possessed with demon children today. 
Please come back Brianne. We need you. My sanity needs you.

Here is another Freaky Friday thing that happened. If you remember correctly the last time I had boy trouble I had an old man in a grocery store talk to me. Well... it happened again. No joke. I'm serious. I am having boy trouble and an older man randomly talked to me. I went to get sushi with Austin tonight at Jasmine (mmm...). We were sitting at the table and I was texting away. This guy at a table next to us said, "how old are you? 16?" hahaha no I am not 16. I told him I was 21. He said, "how come all these kids have cell phones and wont get off them." I just kinda laughed awkwardly. I kept texting and he said, "you need to pay attention to your date." I was really annoyed because he was telling me to stop texting. I felt like I had to hide my phone to text like I do when I'm in class. I kept eating and he then yelled, "21 is too early to get married." I laughed again and was like ya... In the middle of our conversation his phone rang and I was so annoyed. I heard him say on the phone, "there is the cutest girl at a table next to mine. She is 21 but she looks 15 or 16." He then went on to describe me... "she is one of those girls that doesn't wear make up or care about how she looks." K um.. hello.. pretty sure I was wearing make and I had gotten ready. Geez! People expect so much. He then put his phone conversation on hold and he said to me, " This is my son. He is 24. He is a catch. He lives in California." I didn't say anything except an awkward, "Oh that's cool." He then returned to his phone and said, "She wants to talk to you." He walks over and hands me his phone. I was so confused. Some guy named Dean said, "I'm sorry that my dad is so weird." He explained to me that he went to BYU and he now lives in California and does something with computers. He asked me if he could have my number which I thought was kinda weird. I gave him my house number just to be safe. This guy and his wife wouldn't stop looking at me and it made me feel weird. The guy kept saying wow you are pretty and you don't even wear make up. Um... yes i do!!!! How rude.  So that is basically my freaky friday story. Weird.

Another freaky thing...

Halloween parties

Halloween night. Me and Zach went up to the Howl at Utah State. I was a pirate and he was Jackie Moon.


my mom always gets mad at me when i post posts like this but oh well... its my blog. i am so frustrated with a boy right now (its ok that i am posting this because he already knows this if he ends up reading this). 

i like a boy named zachary. 
he is super cute and super nice. 
we get along great and have so much fun together. 
naturally when this happens, two people date... 
boy was i WRONG! 
he likes me but he doesnt want to date me.
 i dont know. 
i dont get it. 
i am confused. 
i think its dumb. 
so as of right now i dont have a boyfriend. 
maybe one day i will 
and maybe one day i wont.
 who knows? 
not me. 
not him. 
this is my theory... 
if you like someone, date them. 
if you dont like them, then dont date them. 
i guess that zach sees it a little differently. 


I can't wait!

I applied for EFY this week. I am so excited I can't stand it. I love EFY! I am obsessed with it. I made so many fun friends last summer. Alright, alright, alright, alright, alright hey... EFY!

Movie night

For a while Zach has been wanting to see this movie. We finally saw it tonight. We went to the Holladay theater. I forgot how ghetto it was. There was no one in the theater. I really liked this movie. It is kinda quirky. I will argue with anyone that likes this movie and doesn't like Twilight. 

dear zachary:
you liked this movie a lot. you are coming to new moon with me. it is the same thing.

Bananagrams Champ!!

Last winter break Laura and Jane got me hooked on this game Banangrams. When I moved home during the summer I kinda forgot where I put the game and hadn't played it in a while. I recently found it and I have become obsessed. I introduced it to the Parduhns. They love it also. That's all we do when I go over there. I don't want to brag or anything but I win every single time. Ok not every single time... but close.
