Two Days Old

McKai Facts

He has the cutest little mouse eyes.

Kase says his nickname is mickey cause he squeaks all the time.

He actually looks like Macie's newborn pictures more

He sleeps ALOT! But not when I am trying fabulous pics of him.

Hes here!

Robert McKai Larsen
Born Dec 26th at 8:06 pm
7 lbs 14 oz, 21 in long
He is the cutest sweetest baby I have ever been around.
He doesn't cry, just squeaks like a squeaker toy. We are all loving this little guy, I cant find the words to describe how happy and complete I feel. I am so in love with him and can't put down. More pics later :)

Kases first YR of Tackle Football

He had so much fun playing, it is funny to watch him. He is so timid and not aggressive which is not really a good thing in competitive sports. He decided that he could be like the Waterboy and hit people hard, it never worked very well. OH well! HE had fun, I don't care if he is the star player or the one on the sidelines.

Phantom of the Opera ...Vegas style

Yeah this is from months ago and back when I was teeny tiny preggo but I need to focus on something fun ...I'm trying not to be Debbie Downer without up-ing my "happy pills" dose.

Justin flew out for another conjugal visit and we partied it up in Vegas. He was so cute he surprised me with an amazing room and front row tickets to Phantom....It was so incredibly good I can't talk about it enough! I don't ever want to see it on Broadway I am scared it wont live up to the Vegas standards :) If you haven't seen it U MUST GO!!!
Us in the Taxi
I had the cutest shoes on....i took them off and changed them for flats as soon as we got a picture with them...all I need is proof then I am a flip flop/flat wearing prego chick :)

With our playbills...

I feel like

One of these times I am going to sneeze and my belly is going to split open. I am so huge, so not comfortable, all my jeans are up on the shelf, things arent fitting, I cant find my toes, I cant shave let alone whip my own a*s, I am not fun to be around.
I am not sure if I am ready for the baby stage , I just dont want to be preggo anymore, again EVER!

Halloween is like my Christmas

I couldn't sleep last night I have been so excited for today...I love Halloween, it is better then Cmas! This yr luckily everything just seemed to come together, I found Kases suit and pants at DI and paid 15 bucks for them...Macies wig Justin brought back from a Halloween store in Texas, her dress was last yrs Starwars costume all cut up...It worked out pretty great except that our Mad scientist isnt here...he had to go back to Texas again
I am getting more pictures with me dressed up too but I wanted to post some for our missing you babe, wish you were here to enjoy this too (and to hang our cool black Chandelier-hehe)

The day I had a meltdown....

WHY?? Why are pictures so hard? Why can't everyone cooperate for just one...ok a couple...ok some decent pictures? and why am I the only one that has the motivation to capture fleeting moments like my pregnancy? I'm not going to be preggo again, I am not going to have this chance again and THIS is the one thing that is soo sooo sooo important to me. I dint have 3 hrs to get everyone ready, I am tired of wearing make up, I'm sick of everyone fighting and complaining. I just want to go to my room and cry myself to sleep. WHY cant anyone see that and WHY cant everyone just do what they are asked, be helpful and get pictures done.

This was what I was saying bawling my eyes out after the 3rd attempt for belly pictures ended in one or two OK shots. I cried straight for an hour and I think everyone finally understood, especially Justin.

Then when we were all on the same page, Justin captured this...

Lil' Miss Famous

Macie was asked to do a commercial for a local expo, she was so hilarious. Every one was worried if they gave her the turkey leg she wouldn't eat but she went to town! They had to tell her to stop :) Yep that is Macie, she is so not a prissy girl.Pictures on the green screen

Do we look like Texans??

I think we will fit in alright...that is if our "Utah Hoe Hair" doesnt look too weird among the crowds :)

So the deal with Texas...we are moving. It will not be till February, after I have Mckai, teach my photography class, sell half of my house, and pack...uggg packing not fun. We are not sure exactly where we will be possibly in the Dallas/Fort Worth area.

Justin has been working in Houston and Dallas since May (yep he knocked me up just before he left), the distance has been good for the money situation but very stressfull on us. Single Mommy life isn't what I signed up for especially being preggo.

I also closed the studio in prep for the move, too much to focus on when we will not be here in a couple months. it was sad but time.

I think I finally am feeling more motherly and preparing our lives to have a baby after almost 7 yrs. It is a huge adjustment and I am really happy I had the last couple yrs to be a mom to the kids without the stress of popping out more kiddos right after each other. Now we have time to just love on McKai like he was our first...this little guy is going to be spoiled!!!!

Favorite New Finds

I am addicted to new funky things, I love to find different clothing and accessory sites...mainly because everyone in this town thinks they are crafty and everyone copies the same old stuff over and bugs me bad.
(don't mind me I am in a pissy mood)

ANYWAYS on to better new finds!!

The Pleated Poppy

Ok so these aren't the newest concept but I totally love her eye for color and patterned combos....she's one talented chicka!

Cultivar on Etsy

Pretty much obsessed with this site, i bought these beauties for Macie but changed my mind when I saw them....sooo vintage and perfectly me :)

Persnickety Clothing
Think Matilda Jane but cheaper, brighter and for each purchase she donates a dress to a poor little children :) love it!

Baby Rock Apparel
How can I pass up cute rocker Onsies and sweet skull shoes...yeah McKai is defiantly going to dress like a little punk! I am sure if he has hair he'll rock a mohalk for a while too :)

I think you always wish your kids will inherent all your awesome traits and pray that none of your bad ones are passed down. Well apparently that is not how things work :) From the time my kids were young they have been very curious about body parts and sex.

I refused to be a Mom that doesn't talk about it with her kids and if they are asking then I am telling. Kase knew at two how Macie was born. They both knew at 6 and 4 what sex was (age appropriate verbage of course)

Unfortunately not everyone is as verbal about certain things and my kids choose to say things without even understanding how politically in correct they are. And of course it always seems to be at someone else's house, someone that hasn't gotten use to our "openness" or whatever you call it. Kase said something and I feel so bad because some of the neighborhood kids found out and are calling him a sicko. sad :(

Apparently they have inherited the "freaky" gene :) Oops! Kinda a weird thing to have to claim responsibility for.
