I was playing with Microsoft’s Movie Maker and didn’t realize how simple it was to make a video. So I made this for Lea. There are about 19 years that go by in this two minute video. You can probably tell which pictures are the old ones. I’ll warn you upfront, it’ll be a little sappy for some. But I’ll also admit that I’m one whipped man over my girl!

(If you get Trey through a blog-reader like Bloglines, FeedBlitz or email you’ll have to click on this link to see the video.)

Oh, and yes, the Christmas tree is up. You can click here for pictures of decorating the tree. Now if I could just get one of my nice neighbors (Zach) to help me get up the outside lights. 😉

    That last line on that blog was a little demanding don’t you think? However I have some things to add:
    1. I’m bossy, so you probably would get tired of that.
    2. I’m scared of heights, so that would make you be on the house and me on the ground refering back to number 1, me being the boss.
    3. You know where I work and you know where I live. By now you should know.. I will help all you have to do is ask.
    However, my christmas tree isn’t up yet nor the lights on the house so… We can work on that barter system don’t you think?

    Enjoyed your precious family and most beautiful wife, of whom I am a big fan; even if she wouldn’t let me put more than 1 sheet in her washer at a time. Ha ha!

    See…making videos isn’t as difficult as people think. Good job…I really enjoyed it.

  6. That Girl says:

    I know that took a lot of time and I’m sure it will be appreciated!

  7. Sherry Fisher says:

    That is so very special. I admire you for being a man that will express those kind of things!

    I like the Christmas tree pics too!

    You should have had the country songs that you wrote for Lea playing tho 😉

    well, you’ve done it again! made me laugh and tear up all in the same two minutes time. love the slideshow, and i’m just wondering what it is your family eats that allows only the boys to look like they’re growing older! but the two of you seem to retain your youth (no joke!) i was really hoping for a picture of that “hot seventh grader” you first saw so many years ago! i LOVE john’s story!

  9. John Dobbs says:

    Lovely, Trey. God bless you both.

  10. Greg says:

    Love it…especially the shots at the track! Even with JG’s car in there…

  14. TREY MORGAN says:

    Eddie … Clods? Thanks for making me laugh.

  15. Mommysmart says:

    Oh, that was really sweet. You guys are blessed to have each other.

    I will now call you Master Yoda, because I still can’t seem to get movie maker to work for me. Obviously, now I feel challenged and will try agian.

    Loved the slide show!

    What an awesome thing to do!

    Trey – since you’re such a fan of Christmas Trees, I think you need one on your blog!!!!

    Okay, I was going to copy and paste the URL for where you can get one but it’s like MASSIVE and I don’t know how to make it into a “real” link. The easiest way I know how to get one is to click on someone else’s. LOL. There is one on my blog so if you do want one, you’re welcome to come and click on “get this widget” underneath my tree (it’s easy to find – right near the top). Sorry, I thought I was going to be able to make it easier for you than that.

  17. TREY MORGAN says:

    Bob – Ingrid Michaelson is the lady singing and the song is “The Way I Am.” Good CD. She’s adult contemp. Alot like a Norah Jones.

I am on here all the time reading your blogs (this is K’Lee by the way long time no see (or talk) Anyways Kim keeps trying to get me to set up a blog (so i did…..i dont know how to edit the pict down but whatever i guess). So i have to know who sings that song on the video you made with you and Lea it is so cute.
    I love all your blogs they are very uplifting us like you :) I even got my mom on here to watch “Omazing Grace” she is not a computer person but once she figured it out thought that was very funny.
    Well Gods blessing and I miss you guys!

  • good list. Don't forget Nickelback, OJ, ISIS and beer-throwing Blue Jay fans.
  • He was pretty tough to listen to as well.
  • As crazy as it might sound, Chris Collinsworth just might be worse to listen to than the song Christmas Shoes.
  • Please remember that some Christmas music is incredibly offensive to people with grandmothers who actually were run over by reindeer.
  • Unfortunately, not a great night for "bobcats." :)
