Halloween 2010

We were all wondering what to be for Halloween, when Quinn suddenly thought of this amazing idea! We would be Cooper's Runners! Wear orange pants, and blue sweat bands.
We all dyed our pants to be orange or blue, or a little of both. It was a funny process, but they turned out great!

New Rings

This year for Cooper's birthday, we all got new CTR rings.
Not only do these rings help us to choose the right, but they help us to think of Cooper.
(Cooper Think Rings)
They really remind us of who we want to be, and how we need to act so we can live with Cooper again.

Cooper's Run 7/31/10 (sorry so late)

this year was the first annual coopers run! it was so fun! there were so many people there! the feeling of the day was so peaceful! we could feel cooper all day! he was there, watching over us!
this has been such an amazing journey. lots of ups and downs, but at the end of the day, it has been a very beneficial experience. we as a family have grown in so many ways that we feel we couldn't have otherwise. we miss him so much every day, but we know where he is... and we know he is with us when we need him most!
after the run, we went up to little cooper's resting place, and watched the sun go down. Quinn found a bagpipist that came and played very sweet music while we were there. we as a family sat there in silence, thinking and pondering. we were all in tears by the end of it. good tears. we all thought a lot about cooper, and how much we miss him, and we thought about how lucky we are to have each other. we don't know what we would do if we didn't have each other.
we love, and are grateful to all of you who participated in the run in ANY way! thank you so much for your support!

Happy 6th Birthday Cooper!

Today was a PERFECT day! There are still no words to describe how our hearts are feeling, but we are taking it one moment, one heart beat, one breath at a time. We know where he is, and that is so comforting. We love each other, and we lean on each other more and more every day. We can hardly wait for the day to come when we will see him, and hug him again.
Thank you for all of the prayers, texts, notes, and other means of your condolences. We appreciate them all, and we love you!
Happy Birthday Cooper Hamblin Kofford! We love and miss you so much!
