Good hiding spot

Brooklyn and I started watching "the Lion, the Witch, and the Wardrobe." She was immediately concerned about the war scenes at the beginning and the children leaving their mother. So when the game of hide and seek began, I attempted to console her that the movie was intended for children. "That's a good hiding spot," I would declare when the older of the girls hides in the hope chest. "Ooh, that's another good place to hide," when Ed hides behind the window curtain. When Lucy enters the magic wardrobe, passing coats, and into the forest trees, intent to help her understand the plot, I stated "wow, Lucy went into that closet and she ended up in a magic forest." Brooklyn replied, "Now that is a good hiding place."

Finger Foods

I need finger food recipes. I have all of my neighbors coming over Friday night. I want to make it easier to eat the food.

Brooklyn is a Poser

Not only is Brooklyn very beautiful but she has always been easy to photograph. Her signature is the head tilt to one side. However it can be very difficult to photograph her when she has her own idea of what looks good. It can be tricky catching her before she strikes her pose. Here are some more pictures that I think turned out great.

The first two pictures capture her signature pose.

Camden is so adorable!

Brooklyn comments daily on how adorable Camden is. She says, "Camden is so adorable!" with a slight New York accent. Don't ask me where she gets the accent from. It has been extremely fun for Brandon and I to watch Brooklyn profuse her love for her sister.

With these pictures I just took you might find yourself saying the same thing Brooklyn does. However you don't have to use a New York accent. It can be anyone of your liking. I finally got some pictures of Camden that I think are worthy to grace the walls of her grandparents. Most all of her pictures are action shots. Those that have been around Camden know she never sits down very long. She just keeps going. I was very pleased how these turned out.

This is her snooty and proud look.

Autumn Leaves

We were fortunate enough to have the opportunity to fly home to AZ and spend time with family. I was very homesick for family this trip. I even forgot about the beautiful Autumn we were missing back in North Carolina.

We had two choices to make the day after we got back to North Carolina. Unpack all of our suitcases or play outside in all of the fallen leaves. Well I think it is obvious what we chose.

It is amazing to me how Camden just keeps coming back for more even after the things Brooklyn does.

Thanks Crystal for the cute vest. The girls love them.


This post is a little behind. We were able to spend Halloween in AZ with our family. We had dinner at my parents house with a lot of other family that were in town for the wedding and were lucky to have Brandon's parents come also. Here are a few pictures from that evening.

Tatum's wedding

Yea!!! Tatum and Chase were married. We were so happy we got to be apart of this happy day. Tatum let me and Niko come along and take some pictures. There is nothing fancy about the photos. It was just fun to document the day.

Leaving for the Temple.

Just Married!

Chase Rasmussen Presidential Candidate in 2028 or 2032!

Brandon and Camden. I thought this picture was so cute. However she was probably causing her body to be limp because Brandon was dragging her somewhere she did not want to go or maybe they were dancing.

The dresses were so cute on all of the girls.

Trey and Camden. Camden has become quite the smoocher on this trip. She loves handing them out.

My mom and dad.

My lovely sister Tobi.

Tara my sister and Matt her husband.

My beautiful mom.

My mom and the granddaughters. We could not get the boys over fast enough to get a picture with all of the grandkids.

Camden innocently playing with the water fountain.

Camden now quenching her thirst at the water hole.

Now she is just sticking her face in.

Thankfully we were in AZ and the low was probably in the 60's. The wetness did not seem to bother them too much.

My brother Tait and his wife Bethany.

Brandon and Trey. It is too bad Brandon and I don't have any pictures together.

There is me. I rarely post pictures of myself. I am going to take a challenge from my friend Beth to post some self portraits of myself. I challenge anyone reading this to do the same.

Tatum the Bride.

Tatum and Chase cutting the cake. I really liked there cake. Very cute.

Most importantly the present that wins the prize for being the cutest package. What was in it Tatum? Maybe they can win the prize for best present too.
