3 Stages of a Man's Life

"There are three stages of a man's life: He believes in Santa Claus, he doesn't believe in Santa Claus, he is Santa Claus." ~ Author Unknown

Tonight was so much fun. Zade has been talking about the orange truck from sam's club for months now. I don't know if he had half as much fun as I did though. It doesn't get any better than this. I have never seen him so excited. He was shaking from excitement. I've said it before and i'll say it again, I absolutely love being a dad.

Christmas Village

On about 24th street and Wall avenue every year they
do a little Christmas Village. We decided to get out of the
house and go see all the little buildings that were decorated.
It was freezing cold but we brought some handwarmers and
saw some kids singing Christmas songs and just had a great
time. There has been so much crap going on around me,
this is the first time it has felt like Christmas this year.
It was great. We ended the night off with my favorite
place to eat. Cafe rio. Zade calls it the Quesadilla place.

Larson Family Shoot

So here's the little video I shot, while April did their family photo shoot. I think it turned out pretty good.

Potty Training

Potty Training has been going great.

We are on day six now of really committing to potty training zade. He is actually pretty much potty trained now and doing great. This photo was taken a few days ago and I think it really captured the moment. If you notice april has a red bottle in her hand from cleaning the carpet where Zade had urinated in two different spots to stick it to us. then was refusing to put on his underwear. Notice the arch in his back in defiance. That's an old trick he learned at about 6 months old when he didn't want to get into his car seat. I really do love that kid so much. Life is never dull with him around.

Santa at the Dinosaur Park.

April took the kids to see Santa at the Dinosaur park.
It's so cute to see how excited Zade gets about Christmas.
I love this time of year. So much going on. So much love.

I love my kids. Being a parent has got to be the best
thing in the world. Zade is just full of energy. He
doesn't take naps anymore. He watches the grinch like
3 times a day. He ate mostly banana bread and popsicles today.
He is so excited for Christmas. Daisy is the happiest little girl
in the world. She is such a little angel. Everywhere we go people
are amazed at how happy she is and how big her smile is. We are
so happy to have the chance to be a part of Zade and Daisy's lives.
Every day I look at them and just want to freeze time. I guess that's
what pictures are for to freeze that moment in time to look back at.
