Our Christmas Letter

Christmas is our favorite time of year, and we love having the opportunity to look back over the last 12 months and marvel at our many accomplishments, especially those of our precocious and talented kids, Danny (12), Charlotte (10), and Tommy (6).

Here is a partial list of some of the highlights of 2015:

Danny beat the entire Metroid Prime Trilogy in record time, while Charlotte was victorious in Plants vs. Zombies.  Tommy created many donut confections in Hot Donut on the Kindle and shared them with his dad.

The kids all fought valiantly in Super Mario 3D World, Super Mario Galaxy 1 & 2, Super Paper Mario, and New Super Mario Brothers, eventually trouncing Bowser & company in each game.  They honed their aim and paintball skills in Splatoon, while also befriending the Wisps in Sonic Colors.

In between bravely fighting zombies, Endermen, and Creepers, Tommy tossed many cows into the lava.  Minecraft steak is delicious while keeping your hunger bar full!  Charlotte built Pikmen statues as well as an entire home for her mom on Minecraft, and Danny crafted a replica of the S.S. Dolphin Spacecraft.

As you can see, it’s been a very busy year filled with culture, travel, and adventure for the Hoopers.  We wish you all happy holidays!
