JEEZE!!! It has been a LONG TIME!! Im a horrible Blogger. I admit it. But I have worked hard, and I am finally caught up! This basically recaps the past 3 months. It has been crazy but alot of fun! This is our Thanksgiving day together. It was a little different than usual... but alot of fun! I had a game up at BYU the day after Thanksgiving, so I had to be up in Provo on Thanksgiving day. My whole family was in Cedar for Thanksgiving. Coach let us leave for about 4 hours to have a Thanksgiving so my cute husband followed me up to Provo, then we went to my sister's house up in American Fork and had our first Thanksgiving dinner together! I made rolls and a pie the night before, and we cooked everything else up at Kyms. It actually was alot of fun to just be with Lance that day. We had alot of fun, well, until I had to go to practice 3 hours later and run on a full stomach..

This is our Christmas Tree! Once again basketball seemed to interfere so we had to adjust! Because of our busy lives we couldn't find a time to go find a tree. So... we went spotlighting for a tree at 10 o'clock at night! We went after one of my home games down to New Harmony on some of our land and cut us down a good one! It was actually quite fun, but let me tell you what... spotlighting out a good tree is tough work! It took us almost 3 hours of walking and searching in the dark, cold mountains! But it was well worth it!

Our Decorated Tree. We didn't want to spend any money on decorations so we got quite creative!It turned out really cute though!

Lance has started to shadow alot of different doctors to kind of get an idea of what he would like to do.. This is his first day when he shadowed an Optometrist! I just thought he looked so cute so I had him pose, as if to look into the future at what he will someday become.. Quite deep, I know.. haha.. he is a good sport to put up with me.

This is our "fake" Christmas Eve party. Since Chad and I weren't going to be with our family doing the traditions we thought we would hold a fake one on Monday night before we left for Alamo. It was so much fun. We had a steak and shrimp dinner, decorated gingerbread houses, played chimes and acted out the Christmas story. You are NEVER to old to get dressed up and act out that wonderful story.. hahah.. even though we look a bit ridiculous. It was a blast!

Christmas was so much fun! Thankfully coach gave us a whole week off, which was so nice! Usually we practice on Christmas day, so this was a very welcome change! We spent Christmas in Alamo with Lance's family. It was my first Christmas away from home, but Lance's family is so much fun and we all had a great time! We spent Christmas Eve at windmill with the whole fam and had dinner then we played games and read the Christmas story. It was alot of fun!

HaPpY NeW YeArs!!

We had a fun New Years Eve.. We went out to Winger's with Chad and Brittany then we went to our Friends Jana & Tate's for a while. After that we went back to Chad and Brittany's and brought in the new year with a BANG!! We celebrated by drinking sparkling cider and blowing horns, and popping poppers!!.. haha.. basically we just had alot of fun with all of our friends and are very lucky!
