Happy Birthday Aiden......The BIG "5"

We had a great fun filled Halloween day. We left the house at 7:00 am to watch 3 football games down in Cedar City - after about 5 hours of football which was so exciting the family and cousin Zachery headed to Chili's for Aiden's Birthday dinner. Once we got back to Enterprise we had Aiden's Birthday party at my sisters house with all the Kooopman cousins and watched Aiden open his presents and ate cake and ice-cream -after the party we were back to our house to prep for Halloween. We had a great time trick-or-treating around town. We are so blessed to have Aiden in our family. I don't know if he will ever know how much joy, excitement and happiness he brings to our whole family - he was so dang cute going from house to house and I love it that he enjoys having his Brithday on Halloween. Happy #5 Aiden BOY!!!

Yes, Michael made his own costume this year. He wanted to be a kissing booth. If you notice on the side it says, "Ages 11-18 free". He went with a group of friends trick-or treating all around town - Good memories and times!

Parents need to "play offense" - to capitalize on the impressionable years of childhood by instilling in their sons the antecedents of character. Their assignment during two brief decades will be to trasform their boys from immature and flighty youngsters into honest, caring men who will be respectful of women, loyal and faithful in marriage, keepers of commitments, strong and decisive leaders, good workers, and secure. And of course, the ultimate goal for people of faithis to give each child understanding of scripture and a lifelong passion of Jesus Christ. This is, I believe. the most important responsibility for those of us who have been entrusted with the careand Nurturance of children.

Christmas In Elma!!

We left for WA the 13th of December - I barely made it to Seattle to hand the kids over to my Dad and catch a flight to Atlanta where I would join Trav for his company Christmas Party the next day. Trav and I had a fun get away and were able to do a little Christmas shopping. We stayed Thursday, Friday and Saturday and flew back to Seattle Sunday morning where we stayed until January 3rd - We were able to catch a Elma Boys Basketball game. The boys thought it was really cool looking at all the family(uncles & aunts) names on the walls before you entered the Gym doors. Michael and I went and Chatted with Coach Nadau one afternoon. It was so fun spending time with family and friends
