Mickey Mouse here we come!!!
We have been planning this trip for a year now, and we are starting the serious countdown! My kids packed their bags on Christmas day (a little premature, I know). We are getting ready for an awesome time in Walt Disney World. The kids get to take their first plane ride (Abby is a little bit nervous). We will be staying on Disney at the Carribean Beach Resort, and enjoying micky mouse waffles every morning for a week. We can't wait to try out a few of the rides in particular, including:
The Tower of Terror
The Rockin' Roller Coaster (everyone but Abby and Vivers)
Expedition Everest
The African Safari
Talking with Crush
The Merry Go Round (Abby)
We are very lucky to be able to go, and we are super excited to spend the week with Mike, Nicky, Landon, Sarah and Katie!
Wish me luck on actually thinking of everything that needs packed for all our little people! We aren't ready to go yet, but, soon soon soon!

Back to Blogging

Yes, A BIG THANKS to my sweet husband, and a brand new computer with a wirelss internet connection for Christmas, I am back in business. I can't believe how much difference this new computer and the internet connection is making already! Thanks babe!
We had a great Christmas this year. We gift wrapped the doors (Thanks to Kayleen for the great idea) and the kids had a great time busting through the wrapping paper to find their Christmas treasures. (except for Lyndsie-- as you can see-- she just wished we would have let her sleep. We found out later that she was running a fever)
Here is Vivy with her "mouse". Santa knew we were preparing for a Walt Disney World Trip!
This is me and the girls in our "Disney" jammies. What a great day!
We enjoyed a wonderful Christmas Eve at the Larsen's with all of the family. It was nice this year to be able to stay at our house for most of Christmas day. . thanks grandma and grandpa on both sides for cooperating! We truly felt the true Spirit of Christmas this year with our wonderful family.

Family Pictures

We finally got our pictures taken (I've been wanting to for a while). Thanks to Kristan for the great pictures and her time spent. Also, thanks to Kayleen for her awesome photoshop talent. They turned out great! It was really hard to get the kids to look at the camera and quit picking the neighbors grain! Look at us, all looking at the camera at once. . it was truely a miracle!!

Wow, time really is flying so fast. I have to apologize to all of you who like to read my blog. The holidays started coming, and my life got crazier and crazier. I just had to let a few things slide for a while, and sadly enough, blogging wasn't the most important on my list for a while! I just basically thought I could give a quick overview of what we have been doing around here!

We took an awesome trip to Yellowstone National Park in October. . Cold, but way worth it!

Next, It was Halloween time, what cute little kids. I love to see them in costumes!

We had a great Thanksgiving at the Larsen's home with plenty of food, family, and fun, and then it was off for the great Christmas tree hunt!

Anna had a Christmas play and she was an elf. How cute to see those little 2nd graders perform!

Now for Jessica and Adam's wedding. What a cute couple. . .congratulations guys!

And yes, my Vivy is not such a baby anymore. . . 8 months old now! Where did the time go?

And I was very proud of Abby's hairdo at the wedding. . this pic is mostly for Kayleen.

We had a great Christmas, and are truly greatful for the Savior in our lives. We are greatful for every Christmas season to remember Him and celebrate His birth.

So, that's the Larsen family in a serious nutshell. I hope to do better blogging this year, but I hope to do better in a lot of things. I hope you enjoyed the update.
