My Nephews

I'm sure that every aunt in the world thinks that they have the most beautiful nephews, but I am here to assure them that they do not! I have them. We proudly welcomed Cooper Trey to our family this week and he is just as beautiful as the other boys. I'm sad to know that I will not see him as often as I did with the other boys. I feel like I will miss out on a lot of things... like walking and talking.. but luckily my brother keeps my in the loop.
Aiden Cole is a sweet little baby. I hear he likes to sing... I love his eyes.. they remind me of his daddy. I can't believe that he is going to be 2 years old already. I miss seeing the squished up face he makes. I don't know much about Aiden only because he moved when he was so young but I love all the pictures and stories I hear.
Then there is Mr. Eliot Blue. I know him the most. I was luck to have spent alot of time with him... He is the life of the party. When he is with Trinity... there is no stopping them. He always has us laughing, especially his phone conversations with my kids.I can't wait to see him again.
So if seeing these pictures of my nephews don't convince you that mine are the cutest... I think we may have a problem.

Freshman Volleyball

God gave me the opportunity to coach Freshmen Volleyball at Placer High School this year and I could not have asked for a better experience. I was nervous going into it but quickly felt like I fit there. Everyone was so welcoming to me as the "new one". I started the season excited but cautious, not knowing anything about athletics in this school. We came together quickly as a team winning all of our pre-season games. As season started we worked hard and became the team that "doesn't get soft". We went undeafeated in league also and took the title as Freshman League Champions! Place has never held a title for volleyball in the history of the school. It was very exciting. We won our Granite Bay tournament beating out the toughest teams in the area. I look back at this season as the best I have seen so far. I know I was meant to be there and this is what God has called me to do. I love those girls and they did a great job! Now it's off to coach Club Momentum Volleyball... that will be a whole different story I'm sure... stay tuned.

Halloween 2006

I can't believe that Halloween already come and is gone now. The holidays are right around the corner.This year Noah decided to be Davy Jones.This of course was not as easy to find as you may think... but it finally came together.

Trinity of course had to come up with something totally random so when she saw a picture of a sumo wrestler she absolutely knew what to be. So my sweet little princess was sumo wrestler this year.

Then Zion... he's still getting to know this weird holiday but gladly decided to settle on Woody or " hoo ha" as he is affectionally called around our house. He just wasn't big on wearing the hat.. it was too small for the LaPera head. Oh well what can you do.
So a late Happy Halloweeen to you all... From the LaPera house.
