Snow...Snow...and more SNOW!!!

Image Hosting by

It's a blizzard here in Iowa! Hope everyone is in where it's safe and warm! PAJAMA DAY at the Larsons, I LOVE days like this!!! Scott is going a bit stir crazy, but we're having fun.

I'm praying our electricity stays on...the wind is REALLY whipping out there and we can barely see out of any windows. Caden got out of school yesterday at 10:30, me at 12:30 and then we broke out the sled! Good thing we fit it in then, because it isn't fit to be out there today!

Six years ago today we had an ice storm coming. Scott and I headed to Ames a day early, so we could get a hotel room and be there bright and early the next morning to deliver our boys we had waited so long for. Tomorrow Caden (and Coleman) turn six years old. One here and one in Heaven, but ALWAYS brothers for life.

I'm working on a birthday post- if you've been with us for a while, you know I always write the boys a birthday letter. This year the words are hard to find, but I'll get them finished. I have lots to post on...Caden's birthday party at the skating rink, our visit to the festival of trees and a birthday post to come soon. For today, I'm spending the day snuggling, doing a little baking and playing.

I'll end this with two of our Christmas videos and a BIG thank you for thinking of us, and checking in on how we are doing. Your support and messages mean more to us than we can say. We are blessed. THANK YOU! and STAY WARM!!!

Blessings to you all,

and here's another...

Our continued prayers for all the kids going through treatment, and all the families missing their kids.


  1. Hi Team Larson!

    I finally figured out how to post a comment!

    Happy to hear you are making it through your blizzard ok! Happy Birthday to Caden and Coleman.

    Stay warm and safe! Keeping you all in my prayers.

    Thanks for the always it brought a smile to my face :)

    Blessings and hugs from CT,

  2. Happy Birthday Caden and Coleman!!!

    Glad you were able to enjoy the calm before the storm. YIKES it is nasty out here in Iowa today isn't it?!

    Sending many blessings and prayers your way Peggy!

    Stef, Ryan, Wyatt and Logan

  3. Happy Birthday to Caden and Coleman. I guess Coleman wanted snow for his present this year. Or maybe that is his present to Caden. I pray your power stays on and all of you stay safe and warm.

  4. I had to laugh at the "Scott's going stir crazy" comment. Last year when NW AR was paralyzed (literally) by a HUGE ice storm, my husband was doing the same thing. Usually he can go outside and find SOMETHING to do....but it was too dangerous with the limbs falling. Sounds like 2 peas in the same pod! I continue to pray for you guys. Happy Birthday Caden and Coleman!

  5. Oh my goodness!!! I can't believe that it's been a year since they turned 5!!! In one way, it feels like it's been so long since they've been 5, but in another way it feels like it was just yesterday! But, what an exciting day!!
    HAPPY BIRTHDAY CADEN AND COLEMAN!!!! I wish Coleman could be here!!
    Love Always,
