That was our excitement for today. This weekend though, we had a fabulous time with Grandma & Papa Owens. They came in town from Wylie, and stayed all weekend. Trey helped bake Papa a birthday cake, we have a little master chef on our hands. He absolutely loves his time with Grandma & Papa....he already misses them. I will post some pics later. For now, I am off to bed with a serious bout of indigestion! Gotta love it. Hurry up August! :) Hope everyone has a great week. I know I will, only 2 days left of school!!!!

God is great,
God is good,
Let us *spank* him for our food.
Trey repeats each line after daddy. Daddy says, "Let us thank him for our food", and that is what we get from Trey. Nice, huh!

Now on to fun prego stuff. Last week I went to the Dr. and he was a little concerned with my protein levels and said there is a chance that I may have preeclampsia/toxemia. So, he sent me on my way (with some fun goodies in tow), to do a little home experiment on Sunday for 24 hours. I had to drop off my experiment this morning at 8 a.m., and let's keep our fingers crossed that my protein levels were more balanced with a 24 hour sample, rather than one dr.'s visit sample. (that is the best way I can word it, without going into ghoury details!, Joe says you will appreciate it). *So, please say a prayer that everything comes out okay on Wednesday when I go back to check.* I'll update after my Dr.'s visit on Wednesday.
Since I am writing this post in reverse, we're now on to Saturday morning. I rolled out of bed at 6:30 to hit up the Longwood neighborhood Garage Sale. P.S. I LOVE GARAGE SALING! I found lots of good stuff: some clothes for Emery, big clay pots for a buck, deck storage bin, noodles for the Brewer's pool (8 for $1!!!), road rug for Trey's new room, books/toy for Trey...and yes, I still had quite a bit of my $60 left! :) The rest of the day was spent napping, and then off to church that evening. After church, Joe and I finally decided to invest in some new pillows for our bed. We haven't gotten new pillows in ages. I tend to change the channel when Oprah or Dateline try to tell me how many dust mites are in your pillow and that you should change them every year! :) Well, that's about it for our fun filled weekend....we're definitely looking forward to this coming up 3-day weekend!
*P.S. Grandma & Papa...Trey is requesting you come see his new room in person! :), I know that was cheap, but I know he has a lot more pull than Joe and I. ha ha!

Okay, just take a look at this picture. Trey is holding a butterfly that he painted for me with Grammie and Iggie.....way too cute! One of his first major creations...
Now, on to Mother's Day. I'm really excited about my present...a backyard makeover! This weekend I get to go pick out plants/flowers, etc! We love to play outside, but it gets kind of boring back there, so having the flowers out there will be a nice addition. Hopefully some patio furniture will be coming soon too! Anyhow, on Sunday we went to our church (LOVE IT...Community of Faith), my mom and Uncle Cody joined us for Trey's dedication. Trey had been baptized at my old church, but we wanted to dedicate him at our new church home. It was refreshing to see so many families dedicating themselves to God. From church, we all packed up and headed down to the booming metropolis of Lake Jackson, TX. My dad's mom, a.k.a. Nana, has been in a nursing home for several months after a broken hip. It has been hard to watch her decline. I was glad that we could all go down and see her, it really made her day that we were down there. Let me rephrase that, I would've been golden if just Trey showed up! We are all minced meat as long as he is there. However confused she sometimes seems, it is awesome to still see her bond with Trey. He got the biggest grin on his face when he saw her, he didn't care that she looks 10 years older than the last time he saw her. We got to eat a nice lunch, headed home, and got the week started. Nothing eventful thus far this week...stay tuned!
P.S. Only 11 days of school left!!! Woo Hoo!

Anytime we visit Nac., our favorite place to stay is at the Rosewood Inn....now don't go looking it up on the Internet. It is the home of some of our favorite people (John & Kay). It was a little bit sad this trip, because they are closing on the house and moving to Rosenberg next week. But, Rosenberg is much closer than Nac, so at least now we will be able to see them more often! Trey LOVES playing with John & Kay. This trip, Kay was wheel chair bound from a stress fracture in her leg. That didn't stop Trey from taking her on numerous trips, pushing her up and down the hallways and out into the driveway. We were all pretty amazed that he could actually push her on his own. Thank goodness that the Rosewood Inn has 2 guest rooms, it was definitely needed this trip. Trey has made the transition to a "Big Boy Bed", so I got to go to sleep with him both nights, while Daddy ventured out on the town like an ole' college kid. (Don't worry, it was with my full permission, b/c I knew he would be in good hands with all of my SFAVB sisters!) But, the agreement was that on Saturday night, he would relieve me and let me sleep by my self in the other bed! Well, 2:30 a.m. Saturday morning I arise to Trey saying "Mommy, Mommy"..."Change my diaper!". Seriously...I guess it is time to get the kid on a toilet. I thought it might be a blowout, but his size 5's get kind of tight when they are super-soaked! Needless to say, I got the diaper changed and am snuggling back in with my body pillow and Trey is staring me in the eyes, saying, "Mommy, I all done sleeping"....If you recall, it is 2:45 a.m. now!!! He then breaks out into song, which one I do not remember. Joe, being out on the town quickly received a text message from me that read..."So your son is awake...saying 'all done sleeping' and singing songs. No I'm not lying"...that is word for word, b/c I still have it on my phone! :) Anyway, I got a text right back saying, "I'm on my way!" :) Thank goodness for a good daddy! He quickly relieved me of my bed duty and I was sound asleep before long. Well, I guess this has been quite the novel, so I will finish up. Trey is doing/saying so many funny things now...so check back for updates. Have a good week!
