Some special little kids wanted to wish their favorite uncle Jared Happy Birthday! Christian's brother is serving a mission in Africa right now and we wanted him to know that we love him and are proud of him. Thanks for being such a great example to your nephews and nieces and we hope you have a wonderful day! HAPPY BIRTHDAY!!

Last Saturday, my brother, Jason, called and asked if the boys wanted to do some hunting with him. Being boys, they were super excited at the chance to go hunting with their uncle! So that afternoon, Christian, Carson, Travis and uncle Jason, headed out to find some pheasants. My brother was the only one with a liscence, but they were willing to go along for fun and "help" him. It was the kind of hunting trip I really like...they didn't get anything, but all had fun! Thanks for the fun idea, uncle Jason!

Last week was largely devoted to making Christmas candy. It took three days to make (with a ton of help from my mom) and a couple of days to get them all delivered. This year we made around 14 plates to deliver and got most of them delivered...only three ended up staying at our house because we could never find the people at home...and we really enjoyed them! :)

Landon had his 2 month check up last week. He's growing great and we love how he has finally started to fill out some! He has such a round little head that Travis LOVES to pet...I mean rub. We joke around (but it's really true) that Landon will probably be bald because Travis can't seem to keep his hands off his head and is going to rub off all his hair! At two months, Landon is 22 3/4 inches long and weighs 10 pounds 7 ounces. He's an awesome sleeper and sleeps through the night most of the time. He usually goes to sleep between 9 and 10 and then wakes up around 6, eats and then goes back to sleep! We are crazy about this little guy and so glad to have him in our family!!

Last Monday (Dec. 5) we celebrated Carson's 6th birthday. It's hard to believe that 6 years ago I became a mom! Carson is a dream oldest child. He's caring, compasionate, a great helper and always strives to choose the right! Carson decided he wanted to have a Transformer party...so we did! We invited all the aunts, uncles, cousins and grandma and grandpa's from each side that lived close to party with us. We had pizza for dinner followed by cake! He got some awesome gifts like a watch, walkie talkies and work clothes and LOVES them all! He was so nice to let his little brother and cousins help him open each of his gifts and let them help choose which present to open in which order. We hope you had a great day, Carson. We are so blessed to have you as our son and love you more every day!!
Baby Ian even enjoyed the new sled Carson got!

This last Sunday (December 4), we were able to bless Landon in church. It worked out nicely with having my sister's reception the night before so that we had a good amount of family around. Landon was lucky to have both grandpas, two great grandpas (great grandpa Monk and great grandpa Foulger), two uncles (uncle Daniel and uncle Jabin) and the members of the bishopbric (Bishop McArthur, Bro. Thackeray, and Bro. Harvey) along with his dad in the circle to give him a name and a blessing. Christian gave a wonderful blessing. I'm so greatful for a husband that honors his priesthood and has been able to bless all of our boys. We are so thankful for the family that we have and for their support. It meant a lot to us to have them there!

Today is Carson's 6th birthday!! Carson is such a good kid! We have been very blessed to have him as our first born. He's a great example to his younger brother(s). He is always willing to help out, is very kind and thoughtful and has the cutest toothless smile! We are so glad that you are part of our family, Carson! Happy birthday and we love you!

Like the Christmas holiday around here. We don't have any snow, but we have been busy doing some fun Christmas things. a couple weeks ago, my sister-in-law and her kids, my mother-in-law and the boys and I went and visited Santa and participated in some holiday crafts. They kids were so excited to see Santa and to tell him what they wanted. Carson told Santa he wanted a truck and Travis told him he wanted a tractor. After visits with Santa, the kids make some ornaments, got their faces painted and then enjoyed some cookies and punch.
The group getting ready to head out and after our fun!

As always, our Thanksgiving was great this year. We (actually just Christian) started the day with working cows in the morning, lunch with the all of Christian's family, some pictures of the grandkids, and then dinner with my parents and two brothers. It was a beautiful day with lots of food and lots of family! The day after Thanksgiving, many people shop, but the Asay's are always preg testing cows and this year was no different. The guys worked cows most of the day and the rest of us got to hang out and chat at the house. Friday night, we made the rounds to all of Christian's grandparent's houses to visit. Saturday was a much more calm day. We stayed home in the morning and then took the boys to see the movie, Puss in Boots. They were pretty excited to get to go to the "featre" as Travis would say. Today, Sunday, we celebrated grandpa Asay's birthday. We enjoyed dinner and then some cake and ice cream. Happy Birthday, grandpa Asay! It's been a great weekend, and we are sad to see Monday roll around!
