Christmas

We had a great Christmas, it was so fun watching Cael he could care less about the presents he actually liked the paper and boxes more. His Grandparents spoiled him rotten so we didn't need to get him anything. Here are some pictures of Cael and his presents!

Cael's First Hair Cut

Layne and I decided that Cael needed a hair cut - his little girl curls were getting a little long. So I took him to Aunt Jo's yesterday and he just sat there like he was such a big boy. His hair cut makes him look like he's 15, he looks so grown up! Here are some pics of Cael's Hair Cut.

Cael & Santa

While Layne & I were in Las Vegas, Grandma Jeri and Grandpa Dean had Cael. So they took him to the Larsen Christmas party where Cael got to meet Santa for the first time. They said he loved it - he just looked at him and played with his beared. He is a pretty easy going kid so I'm not surprised he didn't cry. Here are some pictures of Cael & Santa!

Gingerbread Houses

Every year at Layne's moms house we build gingerbread houses, this year we had three babies who wanted to help too, well not really but Cael wanted to eat the candy!


So each couple gets to build a house and I decided that next year I want my own house because Layne and I didn't build ours too well (our roof caved in) and we both blamed each other. I can't imagine really building a house together - we would be in a mess!


I thought for sure that Cael would love the frosting but he really wasn't really into it, he would rather each cheerios!


Cael has two cousins, Brylee & Hunter that are the same age as him and he loves to play with them! Here are some pictures of the three of them together, the other two can crawl so they leave Cael in the dust but they're pretty good at coming back to play with him. Cael loves playing at Grandma Jeri's house - thanks Grandma & Grandpa for tending Cael while we went to Las Vegas, he loved it!

Duck Hunting

I just used Layne's hunting camera and I found these pictures on it - my husband is so good looking! I had to put these on here, this is what Layne loves more than anything - well after Cael & I - he loves to duck hunt with his dog CASH.

Family Night

For the last two weeks Cael's cousin Shelby has come over on Monday night to play with Cael - they play preschool, and she reads to him and he loves every minute of it. So tonight Lisa, Morgan & Shelby came over and had dinner and played with Cael -I think I love it more because I clean my house while Shelby entertains Cael, it's fantastic!! So tonight Cael thought he would help Aunt Lisa out on her laptop - he is the happiest little boy, he made me laugh all day to day, everytime I looked at him he would laugh and smile at me - how do you not love that??

Rubber Ducky

When Cael was learning how to sit up I bought him this rubber duck to bath in - he loves it! He just sits in there and splashes around and laughs and laughs! Some say he looks like a little buddha baby naked but I think he's so cute!

Cael's New Toy

A couple of weeks ago Cael's Aunt Susan gave him this toy and he seriously loves it. It is the cutest thing ever - he puts his feet up on the top where his hands are suppose to go and the phone has a string and he gets the phone with his toes so he doesn't have to bend down to get it - the little bugger is so smart, THANKS AUNT SUSAN!


I have to show you another picture of Cael - he was rolling around this morning and I took this picture - he has the biggest lips! I'm afraid when he's a teenager he's going to be a good kisser, I guess he'll take after his dad!

I'm a Ferrari 360 Modena!

You've got it all. Power, passion, precision, and style. You're sensuous, exotic, and temperamental. Sure, you're expensive and high-maintenance, but you're worth it.

Family Pictures

We had our family pictures taken a while ago and I'm finally getting around to putting them on - they are so cute! I can't believe how much Cael has changed since the last time we did pictures. He seriously doesn't even look like the little baby we brought home from the hospital with a head full of black hair - now he is blonde and he is so wild!

Happy Halloween

We just got back from TrIcK or TReAtINg on Main Street, it was Cael's first time and he really didn't care but it was still fun. I had Aunt Jen take Cael's picture in his Halloween Costume and I seriously love these - just wanted to wish everyone a hAPpy HaLLoWeEN!

My Big Deer

I had a tag this year but we didn't go hunting until last Thursday - Layne went up on the mountain with the boys on the opening Saturday and Cael and I stayed back at camp. So Layne took me out and we hadn't even unloaded the 4-wheeler and he spotted some deer - he can spot deer anywhere it's amazing. We found this two point and he got me all set up to shoot and I missed! It took off and we saw it a little ways away and it was just standing there so I shot again and it dropped, it was the coolest thing ever!! So here's a picture of my latest kill!

Cael's New Trick

A couple of weeks ago we were at church teaching our Sunday School class and Cael started to do this sniffing thing with his nose - don't ask me where he got it from but it is so funny! At first he would only do it sporadically but now we laugh at him when he does it so he does it all of the time, he's our little entertainer! The movie clip isn't very long, but it is so funny - it took me a minute to get him to do it but you will seriously laugh out loud when you see his new trick!

~New Larsen Family Tradition~ FAILED!

I decided this October that Layne & I would watch one scary movie every week to get us into the mood for Halloween. Layne thought I was crazy but there are a lot of classics that need to be watched like Halloween with Michael Myers, Friday the 13th, Psycho, Saw, and there are a lot of new movies that I haven't seen. So last night we went to bed and started to watch a scary movie called "Dead Silence" it was about this ventriloquist doll that came to life (sort of) but people were being killed whenever it was around. Anyways we're laying in bed and I'm kind of freaking out because it was starting to get creepy , they were in a morgue- and my bodyguard (Layne) is dead asleep! I hit him in the guts and told him to wake up so we could finish the movie - I was not watching it alone! So we kept on watching and then I hear this bear growling and Layne is asleep again! So all in all I had to turn the movie off because I can't watch it in the dark all by myself and our new family tradition has officially failed because I am not watching these movies alone. (Yes I'm a baby but no normal person can like watching creepy movies by themselves!) I don't care what you say - that doll is freaky! HAPPY HALLOWEEN!!

Mascot Bowl

Cael & I went to the Mascot Bowl at the high school last week, we didn't really go for the football game. They were honoring Captain Terry at the beginning of the game and so all of the police officers were asked to be there, so we went to watch Layne. But while there we got our picture taken with the Denver Broncos mascot - because according to Layne they're the best!

It was so great to see all of the police officers walk out onto the field together, I don't think a lot of people realize how much the police department does for the community. They see a lot of problems in Lehi and they work the most awful hours in the world but their job is to keep Lehi safe, and for that I'm greatful. We have been so blessed being on the police department, it's like one big family and Layne has been able to work with some awesome officers.

Cael is 6 Months!

Cael turned 6 months on the 29th and I seriously can't believe it. We went yesterday to the doctor for his checkup and to get shots (oh man he was so mad at the nurses!) He weighed 21 pounds and is 28 inches long - he is such a big boy!! Who would have ever thought that our 2 week early, sick baby who had to be in intensive care would turn out to be such a bruiser! We have been so blessed, he's been so healthy and he is the happiest baby! If he has a nap & a full belly he's good to go. Here are some pictures of my little cowboy!!
