Time goes by way too fast!

I have been so busy lately that I absolutely forgot all about my blog I just remembered it a few days ago so now I have the big task of updating it! SO I think I'll put some pictures up of what we've been doing and if anyone even looks at this anymore hopefully you'll enjoy it!


Jonah has become quite the cowboy! He rides our pony, Joy, every chance he gets! here he is on Joy with Joy's baby (Zion) following behind them!

here we are at our new favorite beach it was so fun! we even saw two seals swimming in the shallow waves!


I took the kids to a little zoo where we live

here we are camping on Labor Day weekend the kids had fun and got filthy! but it was such a good trip! Our new dog Amber had fun too! She got cold so Ryker gave her his hat and jacket :)



Kami enjoyed our little hike, it was so pretty!


Jonah's school went on a field trip and learned about insects, part of the day was spent catching water bugs and identifying them the kids loved it! Even Ryker and Evva joined in the fun!




Halloween brought much excitement as we prepared the kids costumes. Jonah was so excited to be Harry Potter, Ryker changed his mind at the last minute and wore Jonah's old Batman costume but he was happy so that's all that matters, Evva's costume I bought last year, she wasn't very excited when I said she was going to be a witch but then she saw the black and orange tutu and thought it was like a princess so she was a princess witch :) Kami was a little kitty cuddling with Papa!


Mostly we have been busy renovating and moving. We now have 5 acres of land, one horse, two ponies, a dog, a cat, a dirt hole to dig in, Grandpa and Grandma Rasmussen, aunts and uncles, and a ton of cousins to play with... the kids are in heaven! of course we still have a lot to do before our house is finished but it is nice to have it be our own!






Ryker turned 4 on November 15th, we frosted sugar cookies and had a Lightning McQueen cake and enjoyed the day with family, we are so blessed to have our family so close both on my side and Michaels!


During Thanksgiving we had our annual Rasmussen Reunion with lots of fun activities on the farm such as a tug of war, three legged race, sheep riding, horse drawn carriage rides, and more!





And here is just a cute picture of my little baby Kamorah she is getting so big and I love her brown hair and blue eyes!

Kamorah Kay and summer vacation


Kamorah was born on Monday May 23rd at 9:16AM she weighed 7 lbs and was 20 inches long, the exact weight and length Ryker was :) my labor and delivery was so fast by the time I got to the hospital and got checked I was fully dilated and they put me in a room, hooked up my IV and said "okay you can push" so I pushed and a few seconds later I had a beautiful baby girl with no pain meds at all and no tearing either I guess that's what happens when it's your fourth baby but I think she was definitely my easiest delivery! Kamorah is such a beautiful baby we're so grateful for her to join our family!

Coming home in her pretty dress!

meeting her Nana and brothers and sister for the first time!


SUMMER VACATION
For our vacation we drove to Canada and visited Michael's relatives who live there, this was the first time I had met many of them and had so much fun! We also went to Yellowstone, Zion National Park, Yuba Lake state park, The Nephi Stampede, and visited with friends along the way we wish our vacation could have lasted longer we were enjoying ourselves way too much!

Camping!

two weeks ago we went camping at the coast to try out our new camping trailer for the first time, we had so much fun! we played in the sand and Jonah played in the waves but it was too cold fro the rest of us as Evva found out when she fell and a wave got her soaked, poor little girl, we spent the rest of the time at the beach on the warm sand running up and down the dunes and Ryker found a cache of sand dollars someone tried to hide in the sand, he was so excited and we ended up taking almost all of them home there must have been about 80 of them green, purple, and white!

Of course during all our adventures my camera was safely stowed away in the truck and no pictures were taken but at the campsite I did manage to take some videos of the kids playing on the playground.

Easter

Easter Sunday was a beautiful day, the kids each got a toy from the Easter bunny before church and tons of candy from primary and of course Momo (AKA:Grandma)! We didn't dye eggs this year but we had fun hunting for plastic eggs and eating the goodies inside! I think I was sort of a fun sucker being prego and tired this year but we did make some Easter story cookies with the kids and they enjoyed that! After church while the kids were still dressed and cute, before all the candy and chocolate, we took some fun pictures of them!



I've also been doing a few crafty things lately, I made a nursing cover and gave it to my sister-in-law who just had a baby and last weekend I made one for myself, it was much easier than I thought!

I bought a bunch of ribbons and made bows for Evva then decided I needed a cute place to keep them all and made a little bow holder but I need to add another length of ribbon for more bows since they don't all fit.

Here is a brief update on what's been going on lately...
Easter Sunday was very nice and the kids were so cute, we enjoyed the day with our family and ate too much yummy food!




I've been feeling a little crafty so I made a nursing cover and gave it to my sister-in-law who just had a baby it turned out really cute and was pretty easy so I made one for myself last weekend but didn't take a picture of it.


I also made a bunch of little bows for Evva and a bow holder to put them on I think I may have to add another ribbon for more bows to attach to because I didn't get all the ones she has on it, I guess it will be a work in progress :)


a couple of weeks ago we took a weekend trip to the coast to go camping in our travel trailer and try it out for the first time, it was so much fun!! We played at the beach, rode bikes, flew a kite and and played around but I, being me, left my camera behind during all the fun stuff so all I have are some videos I took of the kids playing at the little playground by our campsite, but hey it's better than nothing!

kids!

Evva has been getting into everything lately, the pantry, the cat food, my makeup, her own diapers, the list goes on... I think I'm slacking a little on watching her all the time and I forget to make sure our bedroom door is closed so she stays out of A. my makeup and B. the toilet (we've gone through more toilet paper in the last 2 months than we do in like 6 months thanks to Evva flushing it all). Anyway the other day while I was cleaning up the kitchen and lost track of time, I realized it'd been a while since I'd seen or heard Evva so I went looking for her and found her in my bedroom like this

She had lipstick all over her, the cupboards, the wall and some of our clothes in the laundry basket I was pretty upset with her since she know she shouldn't be in there but I managed to take a picture of her since I also have pictures of Jonah and Ryker with my makeup all over them.

The funny thing is I think they're all at about the same age when they did this! and can you tell they're related? they're like little clones of each other!
