Kaylie's 15th Birthday

Happy Birthday Kaylie! I have a 15 year old daughter. She was at dance on her birthday (team try-outs) so I decided to bring the cake to her. She loved wearing her tiara (Not Really!) but all the dancers talked her into it for her special day. We sure do love you Kaylie and are so proud of all that you do.

17 years

I'm amazed to think that we have been married for 17 years. I feel like I have been with you forever, but when I look back on it- it shocks me to think that 17 years have gone by. I have had so many wonderful memories with you and I look forward to many more. I love you Max.

Garron's Choir Concert

Garron had a choir concert for his school. He had to sing a solo (the Lion Sleeps Tonight Song). He also had to do some choreography, which he did very well. He really hates to be in the public eye...NOT!
Garron with his friends Preston and Eddie. (Nice pink jacket Preston)
Garron rocking out!
While am I the only one singing?

Larson Hike

Uncle Tony set up a hike for all the Larson Clan. We hike the old road just outside of Miami, AZ. It was about a 3 mile hike. After we finished the hike...and we did finish the hike (I can't say that for everyone!!) we made hobo dinners and s'mores. We had such a fun time. Thanks Tony!!

I finally did it- I graduated from college. I received my nursing degree and associates and it only took me 20 years.

The Mattison Gang- so happy to see their mom graduate.

My greatest support. I couldn't have done any of this without him.
Max, me, and my mom-in-law Gail.
I did it!!
