Snowy Day Fun

The first snowfall of winter came this last week and we had a great day playing out in the snow! The kids loved making a snowman and sliding down our front yard in our sled.
Darby loved chasing the snowballs and trying to steal the carrot from the snowman.
That day the power went out for 4 hours and so I built us a fire and we warmed up with home-made cocoa. YUM! :)

Darby Choking

So grateful my dog is o.k.! My dog and her dog friend got their collars tangled and it was scary there for awhile. We couldn't get them untangled, they were choking and Darby got a bloody nose. We found a guy with a knife who cut off Darby's collar. She is doing good now, and I am watching to make sure she makes a full recovery. :(

September Update

Long time no post...sorry! Here is the update on the Hooper clan. Baby number 3 is on the way. He, yes another boy is due December 26th! We are very excited and have picked out the name Deagon Thomas. Pregnancy was a little rough, ok so not fun at all at the beginning, but the nausea has gone away and I am enjoying a very active little munchkin. :)

Trent and his family put on the Bear Pa Charity ride again this summer and it was a great success! Lots of hard work from everyone, but so rewarding when you get to see the families that this money will go to help. If anyone is interested in participating, volunteering or donating to the charity, just let us know!

I am still active with teaching my exercise group, which is really fun for me. I don't know why I feel so good making other people miserable. ;) j/k! Lots of fun coming up with new challenging workouts for a variety of people. I think I am going to start posting the workouts we do on a blog that I will link with on this page. Hopefully!

Gabe is 3 1/2 and really likes pretending he is everyone's (especially Sammy's) mother. He is really good at letting everyone Know the rules and what they should and shouldn't do. :) His imagination is taking off and it is fun to listen to him play make-believe.

Sammy is 21 months old and his vocabulary is starting to take off. He loves playing with Gabe and getting dirty. He is my cuddle bug.

Darby is almost a year old and is learning how to heal and be a good doggy.

Milly is 3 1/2 and is an avid moth hunter.

We are all doing well but miss seeing our family and friends that don't live near!
