The First Snow and Sledding

What did I just say? Snow and sledding? Why yes. Yes I did. It snowed last week. I was expected a few flurries, but woke up to 7-8 inches! The kids were beyond thrilled. And to be quite frank, so was I. I love the clean, crisp air. It's quiet and serene. Well, it serene until the the Asay Darlings and Momma Asay get on their warm clothes and go sledding and snowboarding! Here are some pictures. They are just a few and not great. It was dark and I was having too much fun to stop and take lots of pictures. Daddy Asay was bundled up inside, iPadding. 


The Fire Pit

Ben helped Aunt Jodi build a fire pit two years ago, and has wanted us to build one ever since. Marty and I finally splurged and bought a freestanding fire pit at Sam's Club. Love that place. We purchased it a few months ago and just christened it over UEA with hot dogs and smores. It was fabulous once we got the smoke under control!


The Corn Maze

I love my family. I love Marty. He is so good to let me sleep after working the night shift. Some tend to look at me like I have a 3rd eye when they hear that I am a working mother. Hey peeps! Don't knock it til you try it!! I am a registered nurse, and have been for just shy of sixteen years. The NCLEX-RN (national boards for RNs) is not an easy one. If I don't work, I lose my license, and I will not take boards again. At least I have a degree/skills in a discipline that is beneficial to my family, ward, and stake. How many CPR certifications have I done for YW and Scout camp? How many treks do I get asked to go on because of my profession. TONS. And I am glad to be able to help give of my time and talents. Okay. Off my soap box...

Marty. What a fabulous husband, friend, and father. He loves us and shows his love every day. He took the little darlings to the corn maze a few weeks ago over UEA. They had a blast. Here is the proof:

Weekend Getaway

Our little family ran away last week. We went on a quick trip to St. George. Marty had a meeting in Kanab last Thursday and we tagged along. The darlings were more than happy to miss a few days of school. Mom was just happy to have my family together. 

We went swimming, played at the park, rode scooters, and just lounged. It was quite refreshing and oh so delightful. I love love love family time. 

Unfortunately, the only pictures we got were of some ducks in a parking lot in Mesquite. How cute is this!

 Marty and I listened to the first presidential debate on our way down while the kids put on headphones and watched their movies. What an exciting and awesome debate. I loved it.

Well, there isn't much more to say about St. George other than I am already looking forward to our next little excursion to Southern Utah!
