Well the last 7+ months have been fun, busy and entertaining! Since Christmas we have been enjoying and loving life!
Kaden turned 5 and had a cool super mario brothers party! We had 3 Wii's set up with multiple games set up around our living room.  We had a "power up" candy bar for when all the kids left! We played, sang happy birthday and had so much fun!  He also ended his first year in Pre K and that was so fun as a mom...to see your child grow and learn. He had a wonderful teacher and loved learning how to write and spell his name! He played baseball and basketball and learned so much!  He got more hits and got so much faster.  He could still shoot so good in basketball and learning how to dribble better. I love watching him play! He was also a wonderful big brother as he was teaching Kline all the tricks and trades! I love watching him grown and learn to be such a good big brother and best friend to Kline.  I love him and so glad he is our oldest kiddo!

 Kaden loves his best bud Boston so much...they are growing up and learning from each other every time they are around each other! They are so excited to both be going to school together this year! Counting down the days until they are "dragons" together!

Kline turned 2 and had a "Very Hungry Caterpillar" party! We had it with all the fun fruits and snacks he ate...even had a balloon caterpillar! His aunt Heather read the story to all the kids and that was a huge hit! All the kids loved it.  He is getting very big likes to watch and follow Kaden around all the time.  He also likes to try to do all things Kaden does! He is more recently talking a lot and understanding him is getting somewhat easier!  He weighs 4 pounds less than his 5 year old brother, but in a very stout way! He is getting bigger and bigger every day and I love it! He loves playing with his cousins so much, even to the point of taking his cousin's Emme's bow and running away with it and then chunks it! He is an awesome thrower and can shoot the basketball in the small kid hoop like no ones business! (I think he takes after his brother and dad!) He completes our family in more ways then one! Love him to pieces!

The 5 cousins took our annual beach picture this summer and they turned out so cute! My kids love those 3 Ladd kiddos so much. They are so fun to be around and being at Aunt Heathers and Uncle Micahs is always so much more fun!

 Keenan stayed super busy as his first year at Tascosa and with basketball and various camps all summer, he stayed pretty busy! I love seeing him when he is most happy, and that is when he is with his family and coaching! I am so glad he is getting to do what he loves so much! 
I am finishing up my masters in Administration in Education in December! So ready to be done with school and ready to see where God takes me with that! I did give up the position as one of the cheerleading coaches at Tascosa this last year.  It was difficult because the relationships I had with the girls and the other coaches, but it has been better for myself and my family! With Kaden playing baseball and soccer this fall, I will be plenty busy!

My 3 boys make my life complete and I am so blessed because of them!

Summer was fun and we made lots of memories...we went to OKC, a couple of Rangers games in Dallas, and hanging out at the house, playing in the water and being with family! Fun times out at Gamma and Pops with lots of fireworks and getting dirty outside.  We had a family reunion in Amarillo with family across the nation come! We had so much fun and the kids loved meeting, playing and making a mess together! 

A busy and fun summer is coming to an end and we are ready to get in our school time routine! Kaden starting Kindergarten and Kline being a big kid at his daycare!  Keenan teaching a different subject at school and me being the department head of my department at school. Lots of fun adventures ahead, but we are ready!

It has been along time since I have seen the name Hooker. My granny was a "Hooker" from Oklahoma and migrated to Amarillo.
