Welcome to my first ever UltimateBlog Party....
Grab a cup of coffee and lets have a chat.....
I am Louise Hoeppner, 32 years old living in the center of Canada. I have been married for 11 years to the most wonderful man Conrad(pictured with me above) who was a former pianist for the local professional ballet company, he switched careers to construction sales a few years back since he lost his love of music. He has since slowly regained his love of music and is currently writing and recording his own music on the side, stay tuned to my blog for recordings.
We have three children aged 10, 8 and 7. They are all in school full-time but keep me busy when they are around since they are at the lovely stage of constant 'conversation' as they like to call it, I call it bickering :) . I have been blessed though to stay at home with them while they were little and I don't regret it one bit!!
My oldest son Noah loves TaeKwondo is currently a yellow belt. I like to call him my future engineer he loves taking things apart, building and figuring everything out. He is the child that still asks why?how? at every turn constantly trying to learn more. I usually leave those questions for dad. What I love most is that he is still giving me big hugs and smooches....is 10 really the golden age for boys?
My middle child is Ezra he is definitely gifted at music this week he figured out Fur Elise by Beethoven by ear and also transposes music to guitar, he is also my strong-willed child I know that whatever he puts his mind to he will accomplish. Always the entertainer he keeps our family laughing with his random actions and comments.
My youngest is a girl named Keziah (Kez-ee-ah) huge High School Musical fan, a bit of a cheeky attitude but a heart of gold and is a bubble of energy, she also enjoys TaeKwondo and is working on her yellow stripe.
She is a bunch of fun when the camera comes, loves to bring out the silly poses.
Well that is my family, now about a bit about me I was a stay at home mom until this past year, I re-joined the travel industry. I love to travel we took the kids to Cuba for a week in January then my hubby and I went on a Caribbean Cruise. In October I am heading out on a trip to Europe to London then on to Barcelona for a 12 day Mediterranean cruise with a girlfriend.
If I could travel once a month I would but I know that right now my priority is raising those kids to become active/productive God -loving members of society. I am blessed to have a husband who encourages my travels and subsidizes :)
A few things I love, not in order:
1) First cup of coffee everyday
2) time with friends, sleepovers, coffeeing, watching the Bachelor - sad yes ;)
3) a great belly laugh, I love a good laugh
4) my kids they bring me amazement and wonder every single day
5) my amazing hubby even though there have been ups and downs we are still together going stronger than ever :)
6) prairie sunsets
8)chocolate milk...well anything chocolate for that matter
9)my hubby playing piano till my kids fall asleep
10) snuggling in a blanket with a good book
11) my dog Rex ( big name for a little dog) pekingnese/shitzu cross
12) music-such a variety can't pinpoint my favorite
13) Jesus ,His Word and His unconditional love :)
14) taking pictures of anything and everything especially my kids
Life is good and there is so much more I could tell you all but I hope to see you again !!
