So we all have the usual resolutions...DIET, daily scripture reading, more time with family, etc. And those are totally on my list too...but at the top I put A MORE ORGANIZED AND CLEANER HOME. I seriously can't stand how messy and unorganized my house is right now and I intend to get things on the ball. How?? I haven't got that far yet...but I plan to make a "TO DO" list and carry it out to the MAX. I hope you all have a wonderful 2008 with great resolutions and many happy moments. Here is a recap of the wonderful blessings our family experianced in 2007.
March-John and I gained 1 extra bedroom and 1 extra bathroom and a garage when we moved upstairs in our appartment.
April-The arrival of our little angel, COHEN!
May-Jason enters the MTC
November-The Larsen family is sealed for time and eternity.

Jonny and I have been married for 2 wonderful years. I have never enjoyed a happier time in my life. He is my the love of my life, and I truly love and respect him. He is an amazing husband, my best friend, and the cutest daddy. I enjoy every moment with him and look forward to eternity with my man. Here are some pictures from the day we were married.

My Dads nickname: Santa Clause

This year my dad built Cohen the most darling rocking car I've ever seen. All hand made from wood, this car had headlights with glass, rubber matted flooring and padded seats. My dad is looking to create his own business called Santa's Workshop, and I think he could do very well. If you would buy his toys reply to this post so I can prove to him how popular his business could be. I'll post pictures of other things he's built for Cohen at a later date.

We began Christmas at 5:00 am this morning because Elder Barker was calling at 6:00 am. Notice the football santa brought daddy and Cohen. (daddy was particularly happy about this gift)

Cohen loved his gifts this year...he enjoyed ripping the paper, and each one went right into the mouth for testing. (good thing none of it was made in CHINA)
