2014 Imoo Family Christmas Letter

Blessings to you and Merry Christmas!  It was a great year for our family, highlighted by Sean’s Confirmation in the spring and our trip to Disneyland and Alaskan cruise in the summer.

This year, for our 13th annual Christmas letter, we’re going to change things up a bit.  So enjoy some personal highlights, what we’re thankful for, and what we’re looking forward to next year!

10 Years Ago Today I Lost My Dad

My dad passed away 10 years ago today.

I’ve detailed the events of October 11, 2004 in a previous blog:  how we had just returned from the pumpkin patch in anticipation of Halloween. How I was preparing to meet Mom and Dad at my in-laws for Thanksgiving Dinner. How the doorbell rang and how surprised I was to see Father Smith at my door. How he sat me down and how I innocently thought that he was going to confess something to me! How loving, caring, and respectful he was as he shared the horrific news. How I sat in total shock, not believing what I had just heard. How I broke down in passing the news on to my brother over the phone. And how heartbroken I was to find my mom weeping in her living room…the cops had beaten me to the house by a mere two minutes.

I have mixed emotions as I sit down to write this.  Of course I am sad.  I miss him so much.  I’ve told the story of his death to a few people this week.  While the story gets easier to tell as the years go by, the hurt is still there.

My dad was an avid Canucks fan, and thus I think of him every time I watch a game, write a Canucks blog, or do a silly Canucks song.  I wish that he got a chance to meet Kayla.  He would have loved her (and vice-versa).  And he only knew Jacob for a year.

Our Seahawks music video almost never happened.

On Sunday, January 19 I texted Marie and asked her what she thought about doing a Seahawks song for the week leading up to Super Bowl 48 on February 2.  She replied with an emphatic yes.

The idea was born.
The idea was born.

SOAR – Seattle Seahawks Super Bowl Song (Parody of Katy Perry’s “ROAR”)

We’re used to making songs about the Vancouver Canucks but for this week we’ll be focusing on the Seattle Seahawks as they look ahead to Sunday’s Super Bowl where they’ll take on the Denver Broncos.

Once again, I brought together two of the most talented and lovely ladies around to help me:  Marie Hui and Arielle Tuliao.

We touch on Richard Sherman and the Legion of Boom, Marshawn Lynch, Russell Wilson, Percy Harvin, and of course, the 12th man.

Can’t wait until Sunday:  the Seahawks are gonna SOAR!
