Short post- I'm exhausted tonight...TWO more days for me and then CHRISTMAS VACATION!!! Don't get me wrong, I love my class of first graders, I am just READY for a much needed break! Caden has school until Wednesday, which he's happy about. I picked him up from daycare tonight and asked him how his day was...he climbed into the van and said, "oh- you day closer to retirement." He cracks me up! I think he's maybe heard his DAD say that a time or two, and he wants to be JUST like his daddy! :)

I wanted to post a couple of Christmas videos the boys did in years past. Some people say it's too difficult for them to watch videos of Caden and Coleman...for me, it brings a smile to remember the good times. Yes, it also brings me tears with missing Coleman so much, but I love hearing his voice again.

We all grieve differently, so to watch is up to you. I love the parts where Coleman grabs Caden's ear when he's irritated with him. :) Boy do these seem like a lifetime ago.

A few people have asked about not being able to view pictures or videos on here. I don't know the exact reason why, but here's my best guess...Carepages now has a security box that pops up when you open the page. You have the choice to click on "yes" or "no" when asked about displaying secure info. On my home computer I have to click NO but at school, (not that I ever have the time to be on my computer at school:) I have to click YES. So my advice is...if you don't see the pictures, close out of carepages, and log back in clicking the opposite of what you usually do. Hope that helps! Or you can always try our blog at:

Before the videos I wanted to thank you for all of the messages of support you've left for us to read. We cannot tell you how much it means that you took the time to let us know you care. We are continually amazed at the MANY MANY angels Coleman's journey has brought into our lives- and we can never EVER thank you enough for all the support you've given us. THANK YOU SO MUCH. Please remember ALL the people missing a loved one this Christmas...there are so many people in OUR prayers.

and Rudolph...



  1. I always enjoy the Team Larson videos!! Oh how I too miss seeing Coleman's sweet little face...even when he did get t'd at Caden!

    Thinking of you often and saying extra prayers that you have a wonderful holiday filled with many treasured memories!

    Stef, Ryan, Wyatt and Logan Jacks

  2. I love watching the videos of the C&C interacting, even when Coleman gets annoyed! :) I have a twin sister and it brings back fond memories of our childhood. They are precious boys, and I know you are SO glad to have those special videos of Coleman to treasure forever!

  3. I LOVE the videos. Thanks for sharing them :)

    I am thinking of you and keeping you in my daily prayers. Coleman and Caden are a great team and always will be. He will be forever watching over Caden.

    Blessings and hugs from CT,

  4. While it does make me sad that Coleman is no longer here on earth, I cant help but enjoy watching the videos of Caden and Coleman. They are not only cute, adorable but very funny. You as a mommy do a fabulous job of recording, taking pictures, and asking the questions that get Caden/Coleman going. Thanks for sharing the precious videos with us. :)
