Me: "Trey, do you want to be a fireman?"
Trey: "No Ma'am"
Me: "Do you want to be a police man?"
Trey: "Nope" (notice the manners fading)
Me: "Trey, if you want to get candy when go Trick or Treating you have to wear a costume...What will you be?"
Trey: "I wear a Trey costume"
However, he is a character, so maybe that will work.
*Sorry, it has been an uneventful week, not much goin' on in the Owens' household! Just staying busy with 2 more games left in the district. All goes well....Playoffs! Hope everyone has a good Halloween, and stay tuned to see if we made it out the door to go trick or treating!

Me and My dad...maybe Emery will look like me???
This is my dad's first appearance on the blog...I have a lot more pics, so maybe I'll share some more later. We miss him, 14 years later. Yes, it's been 14 years.
The Good Ole Days...Go #78! Axe 'Em Jacks.
Our Honeymoon...a week before the wedding.
Story - This was at Uncle Jerry's funeral. 2 weeks after Trey was born. Fast forward to Emery's arrival and we lost B-Bill (Joe's grandmother) a week and a half later. If we ever get pregnant again (NOT PLANNING ON IT), just sayin'...watch out. We so wish B-Bill would have gotten to meet Emery...
My first published picture...and my only. Don't ask...2 miles took 2 hours. But, if you're ever near Colorado Springs trying to cut over to Pueblo, The Gold Belt Tour is BEAUTIFUL! Oh, how I miss you...and No! it wasn't my fault.
This happened Joe's first Father's Day...
Our first Christmas in Prestonwood, we miss that too!
The Prestonwood Forest Night of Lights is a must-see. I grew up there and looked forward to this every year!So innocent...

So, this is Trey's new favorite game...and please note that is a soft, bouncy ball and no one was injured in the making of this video! lol. I could not stop laughing, and neither could Trey! He did this over and over again. I really am going to send this to America's Funniest Home Video (Hence the AFV Title Post). The first fall is the funniest, the rest of the movie is just to prove that he wanted to keep going! I guess boys will be boys!
The movie is grainy because it is from my mom's digital camera. Enjoy!
P.S. You might want to pause the player on the right hand side, so you can hear that he is actually laughing! :)

Uncle Cody came in town this weekend. Trey was super excited. We ventured out to the Cy-Fest and Cy-Fair Fire Festival Saturday morning. I'll let the pictures do the talking. It was fun, but we didn't stay too long. Saturday night, Mimi and Cody were gracious enough to take Trey to the Magnolia Opry to see Uncle Cody sing. Trey LOVED it...and then Trey was lucky enough to have a slumber party with Mimi.....THANK YOU MIMI!!!
This week should be pretty uneventful as I prepare for my first road trip with Emery and Trey. Once again, Mimi is coming to the rescue and riding with us. We are making our annual trip to the Dallas Arboretum for their Pumpkin Patch. If you've never been, it is beautiful. We are super stoked because Miss Sheila is coming and using us as guinea pigs for her photography biz!!! Sweet.
Thursday night we will be making our annual appearance at the St. John Turkey Supper. If you live in the Cypress area it is soooo YUMMY! (I think tickets usually cost around $10) I am going to have to sacrifice the JBF (Just Between Friends) Sale this year. JBF is like a massive garagle sale with strictly kids/maternity stuff. It is fantastic, especially if you are a bargain shopper like me. We are leaving for Dallas Friday after school, and there is just not enough time in the day!! I will just have to wait until the Spring. Well, I will leave you with some pics from the Fire Fest...Miss Emery slept thru the whole thing, so she is absent from all of the pics.
P.S. The first pic is of Trey after he hijacked my mascara from my make up bag. Nice.
Have a great week!!!

Some of the points that really stuck out to me today were: (1) I am responsible for my own attitude...so true! I just let my thoughts snow ball and before you know it my day is horrible, only because I think it is. This quote rocked: 'Trouble is inevitable, Misery is OPTIONAL.' (2) Every attitude begins with a thought. "For as he thinks within himself, so he is" Proverbs 23:7....This one really hits home. I think way too much. Even if it isn't negative thinking, nonetheless I'm thinking and not just enjoying the moments with my friends and family. Last but not least (3) My ATTITUDE affects my ACTIONS....ding, ding, ding, ding, ding: SO TRUE. We were given a new action tool to try this week, I'm kind of excited to try it...we have a little note card and every time we start to think negative thoughts (i.e. when is football season over?), then I put a check mark down on my paper. My poor note card. We were also challenged to memorize Phillipians 2:13 this week. "For it is God who is at work within you (me), giving you (me) the desire and the power to do what pleases Him."
God does some AWESOME things. Last week Joe and I decided to sleep in and not go to church. It would have been very easy to do the same thing this morning, seeing as how Joe didn't get home before 1 a.m. Sunday morning from his game...and had to be back at work by noon. But, we pulled our boot straps up, got the kids dressed, and made it on time!!! But, God wanted us there this morning. Why? Because I had already been thinking about this week and getting negative. Here's our schedule this week: Monday night-Bible study/small group (so excited, but using 2 babysitters this week already, so we have to pass on this one and go next time)...Tuesday night-Joe's Open House...Wednesday night-bachelorette night/shower for Mandy (babysitter....score!)...Thursday night-Sub varsity FB night...Friday night-Varsity FB game (babysitter...double score!)...Saturday-Cy Fest, Fire Fest (fire trucks and more), scouting with Joe that night.
I'm out of breath just typing that schedule! JUST KIDDING, b/c I think that qualifies as a negative thought. There are so many negative things I could think about this week. OR, I could think "Wow, we are so blessed with family and friends to share our lives with and we have one of the most rewarding jobs in the universe". This is what I'm going to be working on, so if you catch me bein' negative...STOP ME! :)
I hope everyone has a fantastic week!
