Our poor blog has been neglected lately.
Here's an update of what we've been doing.
New boss at his work. Keeps him very busy.
Taking a basketball class which he thouroughly enjoys. 
He's enjoying his last semester so far.
His classes involve a lot of application and real life work, which he loves.
He's also got to go to Parowan to work on the houseboat.
He loves being able to do that so this weekend he got to work with Jared on the houseboat.
He's still being the awesome husband he has always been.
Very supportive and helpful because we've both been extremely busy the past few weeks.

Team teaching currently, starting to teach on my own starting the 31st.
Coaching lacrosse, currently just doing conditioning. We start practice on February 2nd with our sticks. I have an awesome group of girls this year.
Doing physical therapy trying to heal my leg. It definitely feels a little stronger.
Making sure to spend time with Alex. We take advantage of our nights together.

We enjoy being busy, but we also enjoy our weekends that we get to spend together.
We are lucky enough to have my little brother Kenny living with us until his mission.
It's been so enjoyable to have him around.

That's the update for now, sorry no pictures! I've been terrible at taking them lately.

Knee Update:

So I finally got an MRI on Tuesday and went to the doctor today to figure out what the problem is.
Sadly, it is my ACL.
The doctor said I had a partial tear in my ACL and also a torn ligament on the outside of my knee.
The ligament will heal itself  but is the most painful part!
The doctor was surprised it was my ACL because my knee feels so stable so for now the plan is to do physical therapy for 2 weeks to see if it'll start to heal itself. 
If the physical therapy doesn't work then I'll need surgery.
I'm okay waiting a bit because I wouldn't be able to have surgery until presidents day weekend (because of student teaching and lacrosse).

So for now, I work on making my leg better.
I really hope the physical therapy works.
This process is absolutely killing me.

Outside of my knee, student teaching is great.
Alex doesn't have a horrible schedule this semester and is just busy with his job!

We'll do more updating later!

Christmas in Florida

We had a great time this Christmas break!
We got to go to Naples, Florida, which is were my parents live now and spend time with my family.
We all left on Sunday the 18th and stayed until January 2nd.
We played a lot of golf (Alex got pretty good), tennis, and card games.
We caught up with some old friends and enjoyed socializing.
We went wakeboarding multiple times, but also on Christmas Eve and New Year's Eve.
Here's some pictures from the trip:
 Alex and Kenny ready to golf. 

Gator in the water near our ball.
Christina on the boat.
Christmas Eve wakeboarding
Gingerbread houses.

Opening presents. Dad with his stocking.

 Kenny in his beard beanie.

 More wakeboarding.

The new wake ski's.

Sadly on New Year's Eve I was using my dads new wake skis (they're like water ski's but wider and lighter so you can jump the wake and do tricks) and I was trying to a surface 180 when my left leg went one way and my right leg went the other way. I heard a loud pop and just screamed in pain. I went to the doctor and they think I tore my ACL. I have to wait until Thursday to find out for sure. It's really horrible timing for me to get hurt and I can't believe I was being so dumb! But we're hoping for the best. 

Other than that we had an awesome time. I love getting to spend time with my parents and my siblings. We had a great time with Nash as well.
We can't wait to go back.
We're also so glad we only have to wait until February to see my mom and dad again!
