This year we turned Easter sunnyside down and made the trek to Wyoming, where it was SNOWING. Aaron met a lot of cousins he never knew he had and we had one long road trip to talk about for years to come.
We started our trip after seeing Jen’s Dad, Gary, retire from the South Coast AQMD after 40 (?) years of service. It was a very exciting event where he was given an award for his service and a gold medal from the 1984 Olympics. Awesome!

WOULD THE EASTER BUNNY FIND AARON?
girls and boys. And you know what he still has a perfect record. Aaron had a great time meeting his Great Grandma O’Brien and all of the other aunts, uncles and cousins. He was quite the Easter Egg hunter as well. Finding more than his share of the candy filled eggs. We want to thank the O’Brien and Keener families for showing us such a great time while we were in Wyoming and Utah.

The holiday cheer is in BIG supply around the Keener home. Our decorations were up by Thanksgiving weekend and Aaron asks everyday if the newly wrapped presents under the tree were delivered from Santa for him. It’s important to remember in the middle of this joyous time that the real reason we celebrate is for the birth of Christ and the sacrifices that God made to give us his son.
Our road trip to Wyo m i n g t o o k u s through Salt Lake on the first night. On the second day, we hit a snow storm going over South Pass. It was a bit stressful but we arrived safely. Aaron’s big question was how the Easter Bunny was going to find him. We told him the Easter Bunny can find all little

Aaron’s Year in Review
He was a busy boy, or rather a “Busy Bee” this year as he started preschool. School has been good for Aaron. He is now potty trained and is learning to share. He is excited that he gets to see his best friend Riley a lot more now. He loves bike days and jumper house days!

May our paths cross more often
May your bank account grow in heaven and on earth May you laugh often, play hard and forgive easily May you cross something off of your Bucket List

Earlier this year, Aaron was asked to lessons. In November be the Ring Boy for Chant and Casey’s he passed his survival test and can Wedding. He was quite the charmer now swim on his own! In July, Aaron got a new Toy Story bicycle for his 3rd birthday. It took him a while to figure out how to work the pedals. Wouldn’t you know it, one bike day at school and he can ride like the wind.

and we also learned that he had major moves on the dance floor.
