Koops Family

And right after the Laninga Family photo shoot, we went to meet the extra large Koops family. We had around 40 people total, making this one of the largest family shoots we've done yet. :) The cool part about shooting this family is somehow they are related to my family..... Although, I don't quite know how... The first photo is my favorite. It has "Mom" or "Grandma" or "Great Grandma" (yes, 4 generations!) in the foreground, with her kids talking casually behind her.
Here's a few of my favs from the shoot.... the rest will be on the website in a few days. Thanks for getting everyone together and so prepared for us guys!!!!

Laninga Family

Here is the Laninga Family, from Holland. As we rushed around with 11 people at 4 locations inside their beautiful church, we were able to capture these shots. They were willing to try some of our less traditional poses, and I think they turned out super cute! Here is a teaser until the rest are on the website. Thanks guys!

Merry Christmas! Happy Birthday Jesus!

For all those who celebrate Christmas as presents, and Santa, I just want to say that Christmas is sooooooo much more! A baby, born to a virgin woman, was sent by God to be our savior. He was not meant to save us from our economy, or to help us gain material goods. His intentions are for our life after death. This baby, was Jesus.... about 2008 years ago :) Any one who believes in him, as the only way to heaven, will have life beyond their wildest imaginations! I'd love to see you all there with me on the day that God decides to take me home. God Bless!!!! Merry Christmas!

Christmas Parties Galore!

Here are some from my Mom's Birthday party the 22ND. Zeke played on his new rocking horse with Grandpa. He loves it! Tonight is the family Christmas party! We all can't wait!!!!

And What fun it was! Zeke got his first John Deer tractor and more balls then he can play with in this next year! Today was stockings and the Koops family party. We found out that our family trip will be to Shipshewana, IN for the Midianite museum, and a water park! Wahoooooo!!!

Below are a few pictures taken the night that our immediate family celebrated gift giving.

Since I don't like to write much, I like to let pictures tell my story. Here is my fun and wacky family from my Dad's side. We ALL got to swing at a pinata this year, thanks to Kelly and Janelle, who made a "big kids" pinata. Janelles was totally a riot! It was like a brick... our cousins David and Michael were marines and did the whole boot camp thing, and they were saying their shoulder hurt after a swing at the 20 lb reindeer pinata! :) It was great! During the traditional family photo where we were able to be "funny", Mark became Ozzy Osborne, and pulled it off well. Little Bethany became a raggety Anne, and everyone had some fun with it! My Grams and Gramps are still doing well, Bless the Lord, and It's fun to see all the generations that they have started here in Michigan. Unfortunatly, Joyce and Charlie were on their way from Colorado, and couldn't make it in time. So we didn't get to see Greg, our cousin from the west. Missing from the family photos are: Matt & Christina, Daisha, Corbin, Greg, Joyce & Charlie, Dawn, Aaron, Morgan, Becca and Uncle Jim. Thanks for putting on the party Aunt Deb!

Ahhhh!!!!! I had forgotten my cousin Janelle in the previous montage, so here's a new one! I can't believe I forgot her! The master mind of the Pinatas!!!! The life of the party! Sorry Janelle!!!!

Fun with Rings!

My mom was so kind to lend me her and dad's wedding rings for a little photography fun. Here's what I came up with. I'm trying for a slightly more creative way to display rings when we do all our weddings in 2009!

Zeke : 11 months old!

Zeke is 11 months old!!!!! He's taking those first steps, (7 in a row!!!) and we're so proud of him. The very bad colicky baby is now a hot commodity in the Koops/Devisser family :)

This is my other baby... This is Dazzelynn Star (Dazz), my Belgian Warmblood mare/filly. I broke her out when she was 2 1/2 and now she has started jumping at 5 years old. She's such a good horse... standing at 16.3 hands already! I look a bit small on her sometimes, but I think it's better then looking to big on her!
