Once again Merry Christmas! Here is a quick little update on everyone in the family. Even Bronson aka Elder Kaufusi.
Steve: Well Steve is STILL coaching football at BYU. This past year he was put into a bishopric on campus and he loves his calling! His life hasn't changed much its actually quite boring. Same thing different day. Eat food, go to work, eat more food, go to practice, eat more food, watch youtubes, watch movies, eat food, listen to old school island jams, go to In-N-Out.
Michelle: Due to Michelle's new position as a member of the Provo School Board she has been very busy! Not only has she been playing nurse for me but she has also traveling around. This past year she's been to San Francisco, Canada, Long Beach, Hawaii, and most of all China! She's been busy chasing kids around and teaching her dating and relationship class at Steve's singles ward. Right now she's getting ready for a 100 mile bike ride for lymphoma! Go Gypsy!
Alexis (Me): Well I feel like you all know my life already! As you all know I was diagnosed with Non Hodgkins Lymphoma back in February. Things were crazy for a little while but now I'm back on track. I won't lie I do miss being bald, but I really don't miss getting poison pumped into my body. During my cancer time I adopted a calico cat named Porsche. She's my pride and joy. I love that kitty cat and she really is like my child. Besides cancer and Porsche I'm back at school and playing basketball at BYU. Everyday I feel a little bit better but its good because I'm learning all about being patient.
Bronson: Bronson is still on his LDS mission in Auckland, New Zealand. He gets home this summer and I couldn't be happier! He's doing great over in NZ though. He was made a zone leader a few months ago and he loves being in the leadership position. He got kinda chunky for a second there but he's lost his weight and is looking like himself again. As cool as these mission things are I speak on behalf of my Gypsy and I that we just want him home! June needs to come a little faster!
Corbin and Kenny: This crazy boy is a Freshman at BYU. He is gray shirting for football and is going to start preparing to go on his mission this spring. Besides school and trying to lift weights he spends a lot of time dating the ladies and spending time with his bromance brother Kenny (Va'a) Niumatalolo. Kenny is our replacement for Bronson. Not only does he look like Bronson but he acts like Bronson! We've adopted Kenny into our family and he's been filling the role of wrestling, eating, and babysitting Corbin. These two boys are my buddies I love hanging out with them.
Daryl: Daryl is just blossoming into quite the young lady! Its normal for us to be out at the mall or Target and someone saying something about her looking like one of the Kardashian sisters. She's so pretty! She started JV soccer this year at Timpview as a freshman as has enjoyed her first high school season. She had more shut outs that just about anyone and everyone. She's quite the little player. Her futsal team played in the National Championship futsal game this summer. It was fun to take part in that. Besides soccer Daryl loves hanging out with her group of friends and being typical 15-year-old girls.
Devin: Devin, like Daryl, is blossoming! The boy is about 2 inches taller than me, but I still have about 70 lbs on him. He played freshman football this year and right now is just starting basketball season. Its fun to be back at Timpview watching basketball! Devin has a fun group of little boyfriends who he likes to cause trouble with. He's at the age where he's actually noticing the girls. Fathers of Provo, lock up your daughters!
Well besides church callings, Timpview basketball, college finals, the BYU bowl game, and some occasional doctor appointments my family and I are great! We've had some crazy ups and downs this year (thankful to my health) but we always find a way to have fun and make the best of every situation. Thank you everyone so much for all your prayers and your kindness! Have a very Merry Christmas and a Happy New Year. Love you all so much!
Alexis, Porsche, and the rest of the Kaufusi Family
