Some Recent Pictures
It's a good thing that we have some nice winter days here. I'm glad that since Brent refuses to own a swing-set, he at least gave in to my demand for a trampoline. Otherwise, most days I'm afraid the kids would be doing this:
Brent calls them "our little couch potatoes." In the past few months Cooper has discovered TV. His favorite show is "Blue's Clues," and he loves to carry around a little notebook and crayon. Mercedes is wearing her "Piggly Wiggly" shirt (our local grocery store). It has a huge picture of a pig on the front, and on the back it says, "I'm big on the Pig." An adult medium was the smallest we could find, so it's now her favorite nightgown. And yes, those are Strawberry Shortcake sunglasses that Cooper is wearing. He also likes to carry purses and his favorite shoes to wear are Mercedes' black patent-leather high heeled church shoes.
A few weeks ago I asked Brent to take pictures of the kids before church. In my mind, I was hoping for a nice picture in front of the Christmas tree. Unfortunately, Cooper was NOT in the mood...
His jacket is black velvet, and Brent calls it his "pimp-daddy" jacket.
For her birthday Mercedes got a 6 pack of mini-sodas. This was exciting for her because Brent is strongly opposed to soda. At 16, he heard that it was unhealthy and stopped drinking it. Now he also knows from a Dental standpoint how bad it is for teeth. It's a rarity for her. Just now she opened her sixth and last one. She showed Brent who said, "nasty!" In defense she replied, "Daddy, it has MOUNTAIN water in it." It's Sierra Mist brand. We got a good laugh from that one.
