As most of you know by now when I was pregnant with the girls I had given them colors, so I would know who ate what, whose Binky was whos', Which Girl was which.. so on and so forth! Aspen is White, Payton is Pink and Trinity, Purple... Well around Halloween T dressed up as Cinderella. Thus began a fight! All of the sudden she wanted to be blue... UM NO~~~ I have 3 boys who always wore blue, Noooooo not even girly blue! FYI Purple is my favorite color.
Anyhow we went to get new big girl cups (sippy cups that look like a thermos, they only drink water and ice in them so that is why they use them, that and my carpet is light tan) Well the store only had Purple, Pink and Girly Blue (almost like a teal) so when I brought them home, I thought ok Aspen will use girly blue. Nope! Trinity spotted it right on the dot and said "Oh Thank You Mama you got my blue" urgggggg no i didn't! So Aspen said she liked the purple, it's pretty.
Then we went to get new earrings I always get them the same earrings but different colors, They had White, Pink and Purple, BUT the purple was slightly different then the other 2. But guess what they did have to match.... Blue! (ok, really who hates me) Trinity spotted that sucker right off the bat!
"Mama, look they have my blue!"
"T, your color is Purple"
"No, Mama it's not"
"Yes, T it is!"
"Mama, I am being Blue, it is my new color, purple is broken"
(she said this in a very fact of the matter, yet kindly voice)
"Trinity, why do you like Blue?"
"Cuz, Mama it is Cinderella's color... and she is my princess"
how in the world can I argue that.....
"Fine, if I let you get blue, can you do purple still when there is no blue?"
"(big sighhhh) I guess, but they do have blue, and it matches the girls!"
Later when they bought new babies (yes, because that is what they needed was another baby) you see what color she picked! I think I have lost this war.... for now!

Well yet again, I feel the girls have gotten "blog time" but not the boys. (who mind you could care less) but it bothers me.... so the latest with the Team Cooper boys are as follows
Dave, drove about 15 feet from the mail box to the drive way... not too bad for the first time. Kevin plans to take him out to base in a big open area to expand that. He had an eye opening experience on leave, he forgot his phone charger at home so his cell phone died. Ohhhh my I bet he never forgets it again that is after all his life line to his friends.
Broc made the honor roll!! yeah right! too bad he forgot to tell me when the ceremony was so we could attend. He says he didn't know until someone told him his name was in the flyer .... he is doing good and has been at sleepovers quite a bit on the weekends.
Heath is doing good as well. He plays outside all the time on his bike or skateboard. He is getting ready to move to the new school, so he is all excited! (his whole class moves) He is doing really good in school too, and that makes us all happy! :)

My husband tests for his next rank today. He is testing for Master Sergeant (MSGT) This is his 3rd time testing, and this is the time that he normally makes rank but I will be honest I am nervous for him this time, due to all the people that have been in longer than him and are his same rank.... So we'll see. Either way it's not in our hands, but it would be nice for Kevin to have guidance and reassurance in his answers, I guess to have peace! Just if you get a minute :) Thanks!

"Mama, Me and the girls are gonna wear our hair pretties just like you to church right?"
"And we are going to wear our bracelets too right?"
"And mama, we get to wear our pretty shoes the black ones just for girls too?"
"Yes, Payton we are all 4 wearing the same stuff for church so we look pretty, Why?"
she is sitting on my bed thinking for a minute:
"Mama, how come David wears ear pretties? Those are for girls mama, and Day Day is a BOY!"
As I am laughing with her, I tell her "Well, yes they are but sometimes boys get to do pretties as well"
She says "well we need to tell him mama, no other pretties, those are for girls!"

I must start this with a huge thank you! The emails, calls and wondering what We are doing for the Superbowl is so Awesome, as thou you all know that is why we are called Team Cooper! :)
Yeahhhhh so we were going for the Cardinals, all of us but Heath (he has friends for the Steelers so he wanted to cheer for them) We were going to have a Team Cooper Superbowl party, and that didn't pan out, and then we thought about going to church, but then thought twice (there was nothing for the girls to do literally) so we ended up buying all the great food (junk) you eat for the Superbowl and staying here at our own house! It was a good game, each of us cheering very loudly in my house and so disappointed that they lost! Heath, love him, has let us all know all night that the team he was rooting for won!
At one point even the girls were so excited "Run, Run" because that is what we were yelling at the T.V. Even thou non of "our teams" went and we were just the 8 of us, we had a good night! We love sports, but Football is our favorite... I love to watch all my family together!
