Happy April!

Well, it's time again to let all of those readers out there know what we've been up to this past month. I'm not sure that there really are readers out there, and this is more for my benefit that anything else, but just so you know we've had a great month :)

A quick summary of events: we got our engagement pi
ctures taken, went to one of Whit's niece's elementary school play (it was adorable and she did a great job!), picked out a wedding cake, got Whit's suit, had a couple of games nights with friends, I had several bridal showers, we went paintballing with our friends Carla and Jeff, went to the U of U/BYU gymnastics meet with Alicia and friends (go Utes!), had dinner at Grandma Fife's again and this time we played kickball, had a regular old date night--dinner and a movie, enjoyed watching conference together, went down to Spanish Fork for the Sunday sessions and had a fun easter egg hunt with my family, and moved a couple of boxes with my roommates who moved out this weekend. It was a busy and fun month.

We don't look cold, do we? Whit thinks that we would make great actors, since we don't show the pain that we were in. If you zoom in, you can see this halo around my arms--it's all of my arm hair standing up on end, since it was about 30 degrees and so windy when we got these pictures taken! I like this photo though, the lake was so pretty. But we do look a little out of place, sitting on uncomfortable rocks in our church clothes. We took the rest of the pictures at the Oquirrh Mountain temple and those look a little more appropriate. We had a lot of fun though, even though it was sooooo cold!

Here is the gymnastics meet. Alicia did an analysis of our persona while we were waiting for the meet to start. Since she did mine several years ago, she did Whit's this time. She had him picture a desert and describe it, then describe a ladder there, and then a box, then a horse, etc. After he was done with all of the questions, she let him know the results. When he was asked to describe how he felt about the horse, he said he had no feelings for it. Well, turns out that refers to how he feels about his partner, aka me. So nice to know he has no feelings for me! At least he didn't want the horse to go away :)

Here is the fun shower that my friends threw for me. They made it an Asian themed shower and had these beautiful cherry blossoms and all Asian food. It was so nice! It was so fun to see some people that I haven't seen for awhile. And great to hear about every one's fun lives and catch up on what they have been doing. I really have been blessed with terrific friends and I appreciate them all so much!

And here I am with my Aunt Jo and Grandma Fife. Jo and Shay went to so much work, they had darling table decorations, a fantastic dinner, beautiful cupcakes, and fun shower games. It was so fun to hang out with all of my aunts and cousins while all of the boys were at Priesthood. And they all gave me such nice gifts--I have such a great family and feel so loved by everyone!
