    #1…I've learned I'm forwarding this to my husband! :o)

    I've learned to be different and think outside the box, and try new things, just to make him happy. (in turn…I found I was happy too)

    I learned to buy the little foods I won't eat, just to surprise him and make him happy. Even though they are gross!!! (Oysters YUCK)

    I've learned that men like gifts from their wives. (not just the other way around)

    I've learned to accept that we have extreme differences when it comes to TV, music, and movies, but I bend because I love him.

    I've learned that he loves me more than any person in this life has ever loved me.

    I've learned that talking him up to my friends is a pretty big deal! (guys like that too)

    I've learned that when I hear him laughing uncontrollably outloud from another room….it's gonna be a good day!

    I've learned that as frustrating as parenting can be, he is an amazing father and loves them more than they will ever know.Even when there are difficult days.

    I've learned that having a meal at the dinner table instead of the TV is extremely important to him….as it should be to all of us. Communication happens at dinner!

    I've learned that if I start the day by complimenting him, both of our days go so much better.

    Brenda … Your comment was SO good, I'm thinking about pulling my post down and replacing it with yours. :) Your words made me laugh and obviously your husband is a lucky man. Blessings.

    I've learned that there are many, many seasons in a marriage and the couple must adapt to each one through a different approach. Learning which approach is the tricky part. I've also learned that those approaches may be extremely easy or heartbreakingly hard but they are worth whatever effort it takes.

    I've learned that I'm an idiot and I should do what the books (and great blog posts like this) tell me, not what my instincts tell me to do!

    I've learned that Lea put great finishes on you. She is a "worthy woman". Mom

    I think that's the best picture of all the family pictures y'all had taken

  11. Jeanne M. says:

    God bless you and Lea in maintaining a happy, healthy marriage. Hope you make it to 60 or more as Lon and I did.

    On a lighter note, the NASCAR Hall of Fame opens Tuesday, May 11th.

    God bless all the mothers who read your blogs. May we continue to serve God and our families faithfully.

  12. Stoogelover says:

    Yes, there is a right way to put toilet tissue on the holder, but does Lea know which way is the right way?? This is a very important issue to have settled in one's marriage! :)

    You are a wise man, Trey. A wise man.

    we settled the matter with the "TP"
    we don't cage our "TP" we sit where ever it want's ~~

  • it's still early. :)
  • no worries. Luke is a very popular gospel during the Christmas season. 😜 #BabyJesusStory
  • Mitch Moreland has a combined 1.6 WAR since the start of 2011 at a premium position (DH/1B). That position needs to produce.
  • definitely don't disagree with that. We will miss his glove. But he had such a quiet bat for someone at first base.
  • I only disliked him when he was at the plate.
