Christmas Letter 2008

(Most of you who are reading this may have already gotten this letter, but for those of you who haven't here is a little bit of what we have been up to this year. It's been a busy year!)

Larsen Family Christmas Letter 2008

Here is a brief summary of what the Larsen Family has been up to this past year.
Mat quit Wal-Mart in February after graduating from Provo College in December and started work as a Graphic Designer in Payson. He quit there in June finding a better job as a Graphic Designer in Orem working with the Phone Directories Company and he loves it there. He and Nikol are Cub Scout leaders over the Bears and really enjoy it. The boys are awesome and we have learned a lot.
Nikol is staying at home with her now three boys. She found at she was pregnant in February and was scared to death, but now is still scared but really enjoying having three boys, Daxton, Corbin and Hayden. She does her best to stay sane, but it doesn’t always happen. Thank goodness family lives so close to help her out. She did nothing but can goodies all summer long with her family from green beans to salsa to peaches and even apple pie filling, yummy.
Daxton is now 3 years old and is really growing up. He is speaking more clearly and really can get his point across when he is upset with you. We have had a few issues where he has bit a few of the kids in nursery, but he is getting a lot better at that. He is now potty trained and mom is really excited so that she doesn’t have 3 in diapers. He will start preschool in the fall and mom is also really excited, though sad that her little boy is growing up. Daxton loves anything Disney, but loves Woody and Buzz. He also likes fire trucks, building with blocks, playing outside with cousins, reading books and singing rhymes and gives great loves and kisses to his little brothers. He is mommy’s big helper.
Corbin is 18 months old and is growing up too fast. He catches on to things so quickly and understands more than you would think. He decided to start climbing on everything a week or so before his baby brother was born and mom wasn’t too excited about that. He is another big helper for mommy. He loves to give Hayden kisses and sit by mommy when she is feeding the baby. He loves to read books with his Papa and his favorite word is “more.” He wants more of everything. He is hilarious and is always bringing a smile to our faces. He loves to do everything that big brother is doing, which is cute but frustrating for all. We love him and are very grateful for him to be apart of our family.
Hayden Kendon Larsen was born October 19, 2008. He weighed 8lbs 2 oz and was 20 1/2 inches long, and weighs over 11 lbs now. He’s a big boy. He is a joy to be in our family. He gives great smiles to his mommy at the points in the day when she really needs it. We wouldn’t trade him for anything.
We want to let you know how grateful we are for our Savior to be in our lives and that this is why we celebrate this time of year is because He came to Earth to save us. He is such a wonderful example to us. We also want you all to know that we are very grateful for each one of you and we want to wish you all a very Merry Christmas and a Happy New Year. To keep up with our family see our blog:
Love you all! Mat, Nikol, Daxton, Corbin, and Hayden Larsen

Merry Christmas!!!
