Welcome 2008

We have loved celebrating New Year's with our friends in Conway! I think that we have spent almost all of our New Year's as a married couple with the Johnstons (minus our first year in Atlanta) and the last two years they have had a big party at their house which is super fun!

2008 holds a lot of changes for us. Chris will finish residency in June and we will be moving back to Little Rock this summer. It will be bittersweet for sure. We love Atlanta and will miss all of our friends here but at the same time it will be nice to be close to family and friends again. Chris will take his boards this summer which means a lot of hard work and discipline on his part and a lot of teamwork on ours. The biggest news for 2008 is that we will be welcoming numero cuatro into our family. Yes...I know. Some of you are shocked and some horrified. Both are appropriate responses. I must say that Chris and I were surprised ourselves! We knew that we would like to eventually add another child to our family but seeing as I HATE to be pregnant, I always thought that we would just adopt rather than having another of our own. It seems that God had another plan though. So now along with the other transitions in our life, I feel like crap and am totally worthless as a wife and mother. Fun!! : )
Seriously though, we are praying that God will be gracious to our family during this time and that I will be feeling better soon. And we are excited about this new adventure and about meeting the newest member of team Larsen!

OMG! Wow... another Larson! I can't wait to meet him/her! Well, speaking from experience with having a few "surprises," it'll be great! I'll be praying for smooth transitions all around!

I was so sad to miss seeing y'all on New Year's! Happy New Year, and again - congrats!!
