In the Kitchen with Luke and Jackson

L and J helped me make a chocolate chip poundcake Saturday, one of our favorite desserts--even before it's baked! They love to help me "cook." They refer to anything done at the counter, even the assembling of sandwiches, as cooking. Shane was a big help too, licking the beaters so I didn't have to wash them. =) You can see that the tendancy to be a big ham in front of the camera is genetic. Notice Jackson's big boy haircut. Now we can brush his hair without him crying!
Mrs. Pat had the duty of the first real haircut. She is Luke's Sunday school teacher and was his 2-year preschool teacher, so Jackson will be in her preschool class next year. She is a wonderful teacher and cuts hair too! We went specifically to get a trim for Luke, and after he was done, Jackson startd climbing up in the chair and said, "My turn!" I wasn't mentally prepared for this somewhat emotional event, but I was more excited that he would actually volunteer to get his hair cut. He looks pretty spiffy now.

If he were a color, he'd be blue.
If he were a country, he'd be the United States.
If he were a piece of furniture, he'd be a coffee table.
If he were a beverage, he'd be a Guinness.
If he were the weather, he'd be sunny.
If he were a piece of clothing, he'd be a T-shirt.
If he were a dessert, he'd be brownies.
If he were a plant, he'd be a lily.

If I Were...

Here's my "If I Were." I'll get Shane to do this later too.
If I were a shoe, I'd be a flip flop.
If I were a city, I'd be Asheville, NC.
If I were a season, I'd be spring.
If I were a car, I’d be an Eclipse convertible (I've just always wanted one of those).
If I were a vegetable, I’d be a cucumber.
If I were a fruit, I’d be a peach.
If I were a color, I’d be pink.
If I were furniture, I’d be a front porch swing.
If I were a country, I’d be Switzerland, nice and neutral.
If I were a beverage, I'd be Diet Dr. Pepper.
If I were clothing, I'd be a great purse. Okay, that's not clothing, but I can't think of any item of clothing that I like as much as a great purse.
If I were weather, I'd be a summer afternoon after a thunderstorm, when everything is cooler and greener and smells so good.
If I were a dessert, I’d be key lime pie.
If I were a plant, I’d be an orchid. Tag, fellow bloggers, your turn!
