So, aubrey has her first fever EVER! She is 17 months old and has never been sick besides a stuffy nose or something..... so I know it is a total blessing to not have a child that is sick every other week but at the same time I am not prepared! AAHHHH!!!! I ran to get the ibuprofen, GONE so then I ran to get the tylenol, GONE! WHAT!!! Andy is now at walmart looking for both so I can wake her up and give her some medicine. I know this will probably come back to bite me in the butt but she was acting like such a snuggly sweetheart tonight and as much as I do not want her to be sick I could have just held her forever! Now at 2 in the morning when she wants me to hold her it may be another story..... I will fill you in tomorrow on how the night goes :) I just wanted to share aubreys milestone with everyone!

Rascal Flatts

Me, Andy, Mickey ( A girl I work with), and Rob (her husband) all went to see Kelly Pickler and Rascal Flatts last night! It was a GREAT concert! Andy and I will be married for 4 years on November the 1st so we decided to use that as a excuse to buy the tickets with money that we dont have :) We have never really bought presents for each other for that very reason so it felt kindof good to splurge alittle on ourselves. Maybe for the 5 year anniversary we can go on a fun trip or something!
Andy is such a sweety though he is not a music guy AT ALL! But he went along with me and stood up with me and clapped and acted like he had a good time ( I really think he enjoyed it although he may never admit it! ) I am pretty much crazy for Rascal Flatts I have all of there cds and aubrey and I like to listen to them REAL loud in the car! I sing and she stares at me HaHa I am sure one day she will sing right along with me! Anyways speaking of Aubrey!
She is really starting to talk alot more she tries to copy alot of what I say some of it comes out right some of it is TOTALLY wrong but she tries so hard. It is so neat to see her growing up and growing into her own little personality! I think my whole life my mom and dad prayed that I would have a child just like me and so I have aubrey who is an anwer to my parents prayers! Thanks mom and dad! :) One of the things that we really are working on is JuJu for her Aunt Julia well.... right now it is coming out DooDoo which julia LOVES by the way.... personally I think it is darn cute but julia doesnt want that to stick as her nickname, I can not imagine why! She is really getting Jon-Jon down pretty good which is so sweet....
Anyway enough rambling, andy is at the Calera football game tonight I went out to eat with mom and dad and now I am back home aubrey is in bed and there is nothing on tv so I thought I would blog alittle.... sorry if I bored ya!

Photography Class

Mom and I are taking a photographing children course at Jeff State and our home work for this week was to take a close up pictures and pictures with simple back grounds. I have had a really hard time getting close ups just because it is hard to get a 17 month old to sit still long enough to get the picture but now that I have sat down and started editing my pictures I have realized that I was so focused on getting the close up, I do not have any simple back grounds! So I need to get started on that now I guess since my class is tuesday! Anyway I will be sharing my photos from week to week and I would really like opinons on what everyone thinks! Since I do not have simple back ground yet today will just be of my close up shots!
Hope you enjoy!

Aubrey was up ALOT last night..... alittle bit of a reminder that I am not ready for a new born :) Anyways.... so since she got up a million times she was tired and cranky this morning and so was I! The two of us butted heads half the morning until andy and I decided to clean out our front bed room and then it was like a magical world up in the spare bed room! She played in a cardboard box and found her old toys that she had outgrown, ie. her walker. As much as I love my little me I really hope that God blesses me with a little andy next.... one of my personalities is enought around here and now God has thrown in my sweet little aubrey who acts just like me and who I can not communicate real well with yet! I think that is our biggest problems these days I know what I want to tell her but she doesnt understand and she knows what she wants to tell me but I do not understand so she winds up screaming at me! It is a continuous cycle that I hope comes to an end very soon. Poor andy he is just stuck in the middle getting orders from both of us now :) All that to say aubrey is now down for her afternoon nap and so I think I will go curl up in bed and watch a movie while andy watches his football. I pray she naps better than she slept last night!

Our Soldier

A Soldier

There is discipline in A Soldier

you can see it when he walks,

There is honor in A Soldier

you hear it when he talks.

There is courage in A Soldier

you can see it in his eyes,

There is loyalty in A Soldier

that he will not compromise.

There is something in A Soldier

that makes him stand apart,

There is strength in A Soldier

that beats from his heart.

A Soldier isn't a title any man can be hired to do,

A Soldier is the soul of that man

buried deep inside of you.

A Soldier's job isn't finished after

an 8 hour day or a 40 hour week,

A Soldier is always A Soldier

even while he sleeps.

A Soldier serves his country first

and his life is left behind,

A Soldier has to sacrifice

what comes first in a civilian's mind.

If you are civilian -I am saying this to you.....

next time you see A Soldier

remember what they do.

A Soldier is the reason our land

is 'Home of the free',

A Soldier is the one that is brave protecting you and me.

If you are A Soldier -I am saying this to you.....

Thank God for EVERY SOLDIERThank God for what YOU do!
