Fight night and more!

We're back...not that we went anywhere though! We've been pretty busy the last couple of weeks, but really haven't had much to blog about. Plus, I got a new camera and have just been too lazy to put the camera software on the computer. Here are some things we have been up to in the last couple of weeks.

It's become tradition now that a group of people gather at out house for UFC fights. It started as just a bunch of guys watching it and now it has upgraded to the women joining the group! Which is great for I'm not the only lady there! Everyone brings food and we chow down while watching the fights. It's been a fun way for us to get to know some of the people in our branch a little better. This weekend, we bought the pay per view fight, enjoyed great food, and even had a girl from our branch come and occupy the kids for us! Thanks for all your help L!

It wouldn't be a fight night without a little's in the Asay blood! Christian and one of the guys in our branch trying out some moves!

In the last couple of months we have had a couple of young families with kids our boys' age move into our branch. It has been SO nice to have people our own age in our branch. Before, the closest ones were the missionaries. Anyways, we have started a playgroup that meets once a week. We rotate houses and usually have lunch. The kids love to play together (and all get along surprisingly well) and us mom's love it because we get to sit back and talk. I've made some good friends and am so glad that we've been able to continue to get together every week.

This last week we went to a farm and ranch expo and watched some pig races. They were pretty entertaining to watch!

As for our family, we have all been rather healthy. Carson had a short bout with a cold last week but was over it quickly. He continues to grow like CRAZY! I have people all the time tell me how much he is growing! He has become quite the little singer recently! Carson participated in his first primary program this Sunday and did great. He acutally sang some of the songs and did good on his parts. He had them all memorized and could say them on his own, but when it came down to it, he had to have some help!

Travis is continuing to grow too! He is starting to say some words and it's so fun! He now says mom, dad, ball, bye bye, NO (lots of no!), thank you and nose. I love when they start to talk! Travvy now has 11 teeth...and we're so glad that his molars are finally all the way in...!

Christian is busy soil sampling as much of the ground that is available to. This year has been a really unusual one in that the farmers have not been able to get the corn picked because of their high moisture levels. He's also working on getting all of his contracts signed for next year.

I've been busy keeping up with everyone. I've been doing some craft projects that I've been wanting to do. I'm looking forward to the upcoming holidays, seeing family, and Daniel and Kasi's wedding. We are headed home this week for Thanksgiving and for the wedding. We hope you all have a happy Thanksgiving and that you all travel safely!

BIRDS galore!

Christian took advantage of nothing being planned this last weekend and finally got to get out and do a little pheasant hunting with some friends. The only thing is that they sent him home with ALL the breasts from the birds (which I didn't know was part of the deal when he left)...anyone want some pheasant? He had lots of fun and wants to take Opie out with him next time he goes to see what he will do... Here is the mighty hunter and all the pheasant.

Weekend away

Last weekend we got to get out of town for a weekend away! Twice a year we head for Kearney, NE for stake conference and make a weekend out of it. We live 2 hours away from our stake building and Christian always has meeting on Saturday so we make it a mini vacation instead of spending 4 hours driving . This year we shopped...YAY, went out to eat...yum, swam, and went to church. The boys had TONS of fun swimming in the kiddie pool! Here are some pictures of the boys enjoying the pool!

It's going to be a long winter!

We got another big snow storm Thursday night (I have a feeling it's going to be a long winter!), so Friday morning Christian and Carson went out and did a little sledding on the hill across from our house. Carson had such a fun time that next time it snows, we are headed to the big sledding hill at one of the parks in town for sure!

I'm a little behind on my blogging! For once, I have more to blog about than I can handle! We carved pumpkins last Thursday evening. Carson was WAY anti pumpkins. We was all about doing it, but didn't want anything to do with the scooping out part! I was really surprised. Travis, on the other hand, had a grand ol' time digging into the pumpkin. He thought the "guts" were weird, but he wasn't afraid to get into it. Carson drew his face on and Christian did his carving. I ended up carving Travy's pumpkin and my own. Here are some pictures from our night. The first 3 are from today. I couldn't get pictures of the boys with their pumpkins the night we did them because it was raining. Enjoy!!
