For those who do not know mom and I took a photography class not to long ago.... I enjoyed it so much I went out and bought a camera over the weekend. I would love for one day to be a photographer.... but first things first.... :) So I have already taken pictures of my bestfriend amys baby and I have taken pictures for someones christmas cards so..... hopefully I will be able to start a business after I learn alittle bit more! If anyone knows anyone who would like to have there picture made, send them my way :) I thought I would share a few of the pictures I took of Jenna the other day..... I have also been playing with photoshop as you will be able to tell with some of the pictures!!! Feel free to let me know what you think!

Christmas Card

We had our Christmas Card pictures made last night. We decided to have them made at home and the photographer wanted it to just be natural shots of us getting ready for christmas as a family. I LOVED the idea but I can not say that Aubrey cooroporated (sp?) that well. If our christmas card looks good at all it is all because of the photographer and NONE because of our "natural family"! I am a perfectionist and I knew exactly what pictures I wanted I had all of aubreys wardrobe changes laying out and ready..... we didnt even make it to the last outfit! Maybe next year will be better :) It was fun and it was a memory.... I am thanksful for that :)

Aubrey is learing to sing, you have to understand she is OBSESSED with the tv. It is quite embarrasing when we go to someones house and she runs to the tv and cries when it doesnt get turned on to what she wants to watch. I guess because when she is home she has her veggie tales and Jane and the Dragon and at both sets of grandparents she has her videos, she feels like everywhere she goes ought to have her videos! So anyway.... mom has a kids sing praise video that sings the "Everymove I Make" song.... well the chorus is "na na na na na na na" and aubrey sings that and mom thinks it is precious so she turns it on for her to watch it! At home her favorite is a show called Jan and the Dragon it comes on, Saturday mornings and has a catchy tune so she LOVES it well in the beginning song is sings "hey now hey now now" she has also learned to sing that and expects when she sings it to be able to watch it! I dont know WHY she thinks that when she does something cute she gets her way..... but I do know that her momma dee and papa love her so much and thinks she is soooo cute ;) Coincidance.... I think not

I have been sick the last couple of days, monday I came home from work and I felt all achey like I had been hit by a truck and I was just really sore... So I got home from work at 3:30 and got out of bed the next morning at 6:30..... mom and dad were nice enough to let aubrey spend the night with them because we didnt want aubrey to be around me and catch whatever I had over the holidays. I went ahead and got up and went to work and by the time I got there I thought that I just might fall over dead.... I know alittle dramatic but that is how I felt so I called my Dr. and headed off to see her. I get there and they tell me I have the "crud" did I mention I hate it when Dr.s do not give a diagnosis?!?!? I have just spent and hour in the waiting room, 30 minutes in the operatory and now you are going to tell me to take ibuprofen and get over it! So I drove myself home and crawled back in bed for the rest of the afternoon.....and now here I sit Wednesday morning still not back at work but feeling a little bit better..... with NO thanks to my Dr.! Maybe tomorrow I will post the token thanksgiving post but today I am bitter.....
Love to you all!!!!
p.s. julia the boiled peanuts are in the crock pot waiting on ronnie.... I hope he likes them :)

Better Hands

I was driving in the car tonight and heard this song on the radio.... I have heard it a million times but tonight I really heard it! It is amazing how all of the sudden God just decides to speak.... Read the lyrics but you need to listen to the song so look it up online and listen it just isnt the same when you are reading you really need to HEAR it!
Natalie Grant
In Better Hands

It's hard to stand on shifting sand
It's hard to shine in the shadows of the night
You can't be free if you don't reach for help
You cant love if you dont love yourself
There is hope when my faith runs out
Cause I'm in better hands now

It's like the sun is shining when the rain is pouring down
It's like my soul is flying though my feet are on the ground
So take this heart of mine there's no doubt
I'm in better hands now

I am strong all because of you
I stand in awe of every mountain that you move
Oh I am changed, yesterday is gone
I am safe from this moment on
There's no fear when the night comes 'round
I'm in better hands now

It's like the sun is shining when the rain is pouring down
It's like my soul is flying though my feet are on the ground
So take this heart of mine there's no doubt
I'm in better hands now

It's like the sun is shining when the rain is pouring down
It's like my soul is flying though my feet are on the ground
Its like the world is silent though I know it isnt true
Its like the breath of Jesus is right here in this room
So take this heart of mine there's no doubt
I'm in better hands now I'm in better hands now

Personal note to Jonathan again : I really thought of you while I was listening to this song.... You are in better hands now! Here at home we have to believe this and over there in iraq you have to believe it! Love you bunches!!!!!

I have decided that I am not a very good blogger.... I am what most people refer to as a "lurker"
I do not really comment on peoples post but I can assure you I read blogs all day long! I just never really know how to comment or what to comment but I am there.... lurking around every corner! I am much better at just posting some pictures and calling it a day so once again today I am going to share my most recent pictures with everyone. Some of you may not like them very much but if you look past the shirt there is a beautiful little girl :)

I can not believe how fast she is growing up..... I look at these pictures and compare them to just a month ago, she is totally different! She can say her own name.... it is so cute, you have got to hear it she even gets the "brey" I was always afraid it would be aubey but it is definatly aubrey! Her little personality shows so much independance but at the same time so much need. I know she is only 18 months old but if you spend a day with her there are times you would think she was so much older. When we tell her it is time to say the blessing at the dinner table she reaches out to grab our hands it just makes me melt! "Holding hands was always a Warren tradition at the dinner table" She can say amen at the end..... so much I could tell you that she has learned but you would probably get pretty bored! And just so you know julia.... when you come next week you are STILL Aunt DooDoo so you have alot of work in store for you :)
On another note, Jonathan you are in my thoughts and prayers ALL the time, we miss you and can not wait to see you! Please remember to be careful.... I know I shouldnt have to remind you of that but hey you are the guy that blew your eye up with a potato gun so I really dont think you could be reminded to much :) Remember also, "For I know the plans I have for you" declares the Lord "plans to prosper you and not to harm you plans to give you hope and a future. Then you will call upon me and come and pray to me, and I will listen to you. You will seek me and find me when you seek me with all you heart." Jeremiah 29 11-13 Never stop seeking.... pray without ceasing! We love you SOOOO much and can not wait to talk to you soon!

Excuse This House

Excuse This House

Author: Unknown

Some houses try to hide the fact

That children shelter there,

Ours boasts it quite openly,

The signs are everywhere.

For smears are on the windows,

Little smudges are on the doors

I should apologize, I guess

For toys strew on the floor.

But I sat down with my child

And we played and laughed and read

And if the doorbell doesn’t shine,

Her eyes will shine instead.

For when at times I’m forced to choose

The one job or the other,

I’d like to cook and clean and scrub,

But first I’ll be a mother.
