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!

So much fun!!! The guys that get together to watch the fights here always end up wrestling when thier over...gotta burn off that testosterone I guess! My kids are huge fans of the pig races. I am glad you are making good friends, that sure makes a big difference! I know you are busy when you come to town, but it would be fun to see you.
