Random Updates

I realize that it has been a little while since I last posted, but not much has been going on other than the fact of baby blessings, baby blessings, baby blessings. We had Hayden's had the end of December and then the next week we went to another one up in Farmington. We went to be with one of the missionaries from Mat's mission and his baby was being blessed. We wanted to support them and it was really nice to be able to do that and to see them again. Then the next week we went to my brother's little girl's blessing. She was born 6 days before Hayden but is much smaller than Hayden. She's adorable though. Her name is Korryn Rebecca Lee. Anyway, we went up to Idaho Falls to be with my brother and other family up there. It was nice to get together. We almost had our whole family again, but my sister-in-law and some of her kids were sick as well as my sister Chelsea and her husband Casey were unable to make it. It was a lot of fun. Mat has been enjoying his job and we are just thankful that he still has his job. So many of my extended family members have been struggling and some have lost their jobs. We just keep thanking Heavenly Father that Mat still has his and that we are doing ok financially. We truly have been blessed this past year. It has been nice to be so close to family and to spend time with them the past few weeks. The boys keep growing up faster and faster. I can't believe that Daxton is now in Sunbeams and Corbin in nursery. I'm excited for them to be progressing, but it is really scary that times goes by so fast. Daxton will be going into preschool this fall and that is exciting and weird to think as well. It will be nice to be able to spend a little more time with Corbin and Hayden though. Oh, I have to tell you a scary thing that Daxton has did to me the other day. We were shopping the other day with my mom at Shopko getting some of their clearanced items and were getting ready to go and check out. I went through first and paid for my things and then put up he things that my mom was buying when I turned around and didn't see Daxton. I yelled his name a few times and no response. I started walking down aisles and still no response. Then this lady asked if he was wearing a blue coat and I said yes. She said that he was outside. So I left Hayden and Corbin with my mom as she was finishing checking out and ran outside. He was running towards the car. Thank goodness that he didn't get hit by any cars, but he scared me so bad. He got into a lot of trouble and was not able to watch any movies or tv and AHHHHHH!!! I was so scared that something had happened to him. You just never know what could ever happen, but ah, I just had to let someone know what my little boy did. Frustrating little boy sometimes, but I do love him. Well enough about that I will stop. Just thought that I would let you know how things are going for the Larsen's, although it isn't much. Hope you all have a great day.

I'm glad you and your family are doing so well. Little kids can and will escape some time or another in their fun little childhood. Thats scary that he ran in the road outside but good thing for people speaking up. I hope you keep doing well!

Oh I'm so glad that Daxton is ok. That is terrifying!!! There was a girl in my ward that told me she had gone to the store and while she was putting groceries in the car her little girl ran out into traffic on LEHI MAIN STREET!!! Luckily she didn't get hurt but I can't imagine how scary that must be to see your child out in a place where they could get seriously hurt! We love you guys and are so happy that everything is going well for you!

Thanks for commenting on our blog. I am really bad at that, but I wanted to write back. We are so so excited for little Traegan to get here, and although I really wanted a girl, I mean let's be honest: WHO DOESN'T WANT A GIRL, especially if you already have a boy? Anyway, we are getting super excited to have two little boys who can play and horse around with each other. Glad you are all doing well. Talk to you soon!
