A weekend full of Thanks!

Wow...this last week has been whirl wind and I can't believe that tomorrow starts the first of December! We had a really enjoyable Thanksgiving this year surrounded by our family! We left Tuesday after Carson got done with school and drove to Douglas, Wyoming to stay the night and enjoyed some swimming for the boys to get their wiggles out. We were able to stop in Cheyenne and do a little Christmas shopping along our way too! Wednesday morning we got up early and headed to the Basin and man was it cold there...like below zero cold! We made a quick stop by Powell to say hi to my family and then made our way to Lovell for the rest of the day. Thursday we spent with both of our families. We started round one of food (lunch) with Christian's family and then ran to Powell for dinner that afternoon. All the food was wonderful and we were stuffed to the MAX! Friday was the annual Asay family preg. testing of the cows (checking to see if the cows are pregnant or not). The boys had been looking forward to riding horses for the last few weeks and were super excited for this day to come so they could get their rides in and help with the cows. After the cows were all done, we made our way back to my parent's house to spend the last two nights of our trip. Saturday my mom, sister and I (with a little help from the little boys)decorated my mom's tree. It really got the boys excited to do ours! The boys managed to talk someone into taking them hottubing both nights we were there and had a blast canonballing. It was a great weekend and were so glad that we got to share it with our family. We are so thankful for the each of them and for all they do for us, for the gospel in our lives and for our knowledge of eternal families. We are excited to go back in a month for Christmas!

Swimming in Douglas. The boys did so good in the car so we celebrated with a little swimming the pool that night!

Christian and I on our first ever Black Friday shopping. We decided to make a trip to Cody with Matthew and Charlene to Wal-Mart at midnight and do a little shopping. We actually got A LOT of our shopping done and had fun. The sale started at 12:01 and we were outside of the store at 12:17...we were pretty proud of ourselves!


Day after Thanksgiving preg. testing fun! The boys were super excited to get to ride horses. They rode most of the way to round up the cows but got a little cold and didn't make it quite all the way!


Fun in the tub!
