Anniversary Weekend!!

Woody and I celebrated our One year anniversary this weekend YA! I can hardly believe that it has already been a year, time certainly flies by!!! To celebrate we spend two nights up in SLC and had a blast. My photos are not in the right order due to blogger being silly, so I apologize for that.

On Saturday night we went out to dinner. We had been walking everywhere all weekend long cuz of the lack of parking availability in SLC so Saturday was no different. Unfortunately when we were almost half way there it started to pour on us and we had no Umbrella!! So we ran pack to the hotel and grabbed our car to drive to dinner. HAha we were glad we did because by the time we headed home it was snowing and FREEZING.
Saturday morning we went to the SLC temple. This was the most beautiful temple I have ever seen, I absolutely loved it and I could feel the spirit so strong! Sadly, the rain/snow did not allow us to take a picture in front of the temple.. o well that happens.

We accidentally forgot to bring in our church shoes! So we had to go down into the parking garage to get them. I think we looked pretty good with our tennis on ya??

This is us after the Jazz Game, sadly we lost so we were a little sad but really it was a BLAST and we stinking loved going!
This is us at Carl's Jr. it was right by our hotel so easy to walk to :)

Funny story about the Jazz Game: as we were walking out of the hotel Wood asked me to check to make sure I had the tickets and I said, "Wood, I checked in the car I got them!!" (so i did not check then). So we walk and walk and walk down to the Energy Solutions Arena, and as we are getting ready to go in I start looking in my purse for the tickets and...... NO TICKETS haha. So we walked all the way back to our hotel and Woody found them in the car. After I had checked on them I had taken something out of my purse and they came out with it!! haha so the entire weekend wood would ask if I had something and if I would say yes, he'd say "are you sure??"
So I learned my lesson. It is ALWAYS good to double check!!

We had a blast on our weekend and I loved having a get a way with Woody especially because we have both been super stressed. I am so grateful for Woody for his patience and his love. He is the best husband I could have ever asked for and he is SO GOOD to me, I can't get enough of him :)

Funny Kids

On Tuesday I went on a field trip with my students to BYU. It was fun but pretty chaotic and I was SO nervous that I was going to lose one of the kids in my groups because they did not like to stay by me and also other groups kept cutting us off! MEAN
But my kids were pretty funny, I'll tell you some things:

They asked me these questions numerous times:
Is this your school?
You go here?
Have you ever been in this building/room?
Do you know him/her?
When I kept saying no that I did not know people they would say: Do you know ANYBODY here? Haha I guess I am a loser!

While in the planetarium, the kids were pretty funny about the star shapes. Whenever the presenter pointed out a shape in the stars they kids would say "oh, I knew that I knew that's where it was" haha of course they knew! Right?

On the bus ride I was used in rock, paper, scissors. Like instead of using rock, paper or scissors they said Mrs. Palmer. And good news I won!! Because I had super powers :)

This did not happen on the field trip or even in my class but my friend Jen in her class had a little girl tell her that she knew how to get a baby. So Jen said really? and the little girl said ya, you get a stick and pee on it and if it is a + then you'll have a baby but if it's a - then it didn't work and you have to get a new one.

haha kids are super funny :)

My family came to Utah for Halloween and it was tons of fun to have them here!! On Saturday I went shopping for material for Stockings for Christmas YA!! Then we went trick or treating at the mall, but were too late and there was no candy left so we went home and the babies went trick or treating. On Sunday we made cookies and candy apples DELICIOUS and hung out. I am so grateful for my family and how cool we are that all of us dressed up. They are the best!! And I love HAlloween!!

Woody is not one of my students?

In order to prepare myself for teaching I read a book called "love and logic" and it's about management and all this good stuff. The main idea in the book is giving choices. That people don't like being told what to do so all you have to do is give them choices and then instead of complaining they'll pick out of their options. I've heard this elsewhere and my teacher LOVEs it and is always talking about how wonderful it is and how it works on roommates, students, friends and even SPOUSES. I've tried it within the class that I"m in and have found it actually works really good... so i decided to implement it elsewhere

So i had the opportunity tonight while wood was watching a basketball game and I wanted to read my scriptures so I asked if now (during half time) i could mute the tv and read my scriptures and he said no it's his favorite part. So I said "ok can i mute it during the game?" Woody said, of course, NO! So i responded with (thinking i'm so smart) babe would you rather I mute it now or during the game? How do you think he replied......

NEVER! I was here first! So no muting! And then he took the pinchers he had in his hand (he's cooking in the kitchen) and pinched them and said, "i'm squishing your head! squish squish"

Well. so much for a democratic marriage. And I'm telling my teacher that woody does not buy the whole option gig. Major Bummer
