OH NO!!!

So this morning the kids have been playing together and I am trying to teach them that when one hurts the other they don't come crying to me about it they say, 'Don't do that, that hurts' or 'that's not nice.' and then go on there merry little way playing again. Something like that.
Well Carson came crying to me (which happens more than McKenna coming to me crying) and he said 'Baby touched me.' What do I say to that? I just thought 'oh great! It's already started' and we weren't even in a car. That's where my siblings and I always said that.

Oh well, such is life. It was really funny and I just thought I would share. Here are a few pictures of them just now. Sorry they are blurry....they were moving around and I don't have the greatest camera.

D+

I FINALLY passed. I have this class where I had to take a test and pass it with a 90%, it is 60 questions which means that I had to get 54 out of 60. Ouch!!! I had several times to take it and I finally passed..... on my 12th try. I got a D+ on the test in the end but I passed. If I didn't pass I would have had to drop my class and that would have thrown everything off. I just got my placement for student teaching this fall. All I know is that it is local, which I was worried about, but it is local. I don't have to move my family to Vegas or Salt Lake. However, local can be anywhere from Pocatello to Ashton to Mud Lake. I will find out somewhere between April and June where it is at specifically. Wish me luck with not having to go to Pocatello.
D+ YEAH!!!!!

VALENTINES

Okay this isn't going to be the normal mushy valentines post. I have had some thoughts today at church and all day after that I have wanted to share. In relief society our lesson was on Jesus Christ and one of the things we talked about was the war in Heaven and what happened between Satan and Jesus. Well as we all know our Father in Heaven went with Jesus' plan. This plan allows us to have our agency to choose what we want to do.
Now, I kind of got a glimpse into how Satan's plan could be appealing. Jesus knew that he would be suffering in the Garden for us, whether or not we chose to accept the Atonement. But he still did it! Well if I knew that and it was up to me I think that Satan's plan sounds better.... That might sound bad and I am so grateful for my agency but if you think about it, don't we all want our children to do what is right and be the best person they can be? I can understand the wanting to 'force' them to do what is right.
I know that Christ's plan was by far the best and right choice but, do you get where my thoughts are?
I think that the ultimate Valentines was and still is our Savior Jesus Christ. I am so grateful for the chance I have to make mistakes and become better for it. I need to work on letting my children choose for themselves. Maybe having this epiphany early in my motherhood will help me in the years to come. I am so grateful for Him suffering for my sins even when he knew there was a possibility that it might be in vain.

Sorry this is a little different but they are my thoughts at the close of this Day of love.

P.S. I do love my husband and best friend sooooooo much. He is amazing, a hard worker and very patient with me when I am not so much with him!!!!!!
I love you Cameron!

GRANDAMA OSBORNE

I AM ENJOYING MY GRANDMA'S SPOILS. SHE IS CLEANING OUT HER HOUSE AND WE....HER GRANDCHILDREN ARE GETTING HER 'COLLECTIONS' FROM OVER THE YEARS. SO I DECIDED TO TAKE PICTURES OF WHAT I RECEIVED SO FAR. AND I SAY SO FAR BECAUSE IT IS NOT EVEN CLOSE TO BEING OVER.

SO EXCITED TO GET THESE. I WENT TO HER HOUSE TO LOOK AT HER PORCELAIN DOLLS AND I GOT STARTED LOOKING IN SOME OTHER BOXES AND I SAW THESE CANISTERS. WOOT WOOT!! I THINK THAT SHE WAS HAPPY TO GIVE THEM TO ME INSTEAD OF SOMEONE SHE DIDN'T KNOW.

YARN ANYBODY?

THIS IS A GARBAGE BAG FULL AND THAT IS NOT EVEN A DROP IN THE BUCKET.
NO.....I DON'T KNOW HOW TO DO ANYTHING WITH THIS BUT I AM PUTTING IT TO GOOD USE. I AM THE COMPASSIONATE SERVICE LEADER AND I AM GOING TO RECRUIT SOME LADIES IN THE WARD AND HAVE THEM MAKE SOME BOOTIES, HATS, BLANKETS....WHATEVER THEY WANT. YEA FOR TALENTED LADIES IN THE WARD.

OKAY THIS IS MY FAVORITE PART. I COLLECT PORCELAIN DOLLS AND MY GRANDMA LET ME CHOSE ONE TO ADD TO MY COLLECTION. (HAHA BRANDI I GOT TO CHOSE BEFORE YOU:) SO HERE IS WHAT I CAME HOME WITH.

THE DOLL IN THE MIDDLE IS THE DOLL THAT I WENT THERE FOR. MY GREAT-GRANDMA MADE THE CLOTHS AND A FRIEND OF MY GRANDMA'S PAINTED THE DOLL. MY GRANDPA BUD GAVE MY GRANDMA THE DOLL FOR HER BIRTHDAY (I THINK) SEVERAL YEARS AGO.
THE LITTLE DOLL WITH THE PIG TAILS WAS MY MOM'S AND THE LITTLE GREEN DOLL ON HER LEGS IS THE DOLLS, DOLL. DOES THAT MAKE SENSE?

MY AUNT JUDY MADE THIS DOLL. I MEAN SHE MADE THE WHOLE THING. THE DRESS THE DOLL EVERYTHING. IT IS BEAUTIFUL. AND GOES NICELY WITH MY DOLL COLLECTION.

LOVE YOU GRANDMA!!!!!!



OKAY I HAD TO ADD THIS IN.... SORRY IT IS A BAD PICTURE BUT IT WAS JUST TOO FUNNY. CARSON WANTED TO HAVE A DIAPER ON AFTER I CHANGED MCKENNA SO THIS IS WHAT CAMERON DID. SILLY BOYS!!!!

Carson's start into manhood!

We went down to Pleasant Grove on Friday for Emily's wedding and on the way down Carson had to go pee. This is the first trip where we had to worry about him peeing in his underwear and we weren't that close to a gas station so we pulled over and let him go. I made Cameron help him. I think that he was a little confused. Carson not Cameron:)

I got a picture of his little bum peeking through Cameron's legs but I didn't know if I would get into trouble if I put it on the blog so.....yeah! Anyways I thought I would share this giant milestone with you all!

Here is McKenna 'Baby' waiting for brother to do his business.
