We will miss them!

We have been living in Matthew's parents basement for the past few months and now the Graffs found out that they are having to move because of employment. They will be in D.C. for a while and then somewhere else but we are not sure where. We are going to be staying in the basement until the house sells. That could be a couple of months or a year, we just don't know. (I don't want to move, so hopefully a long time!) I feel bad not wanting the house to sell but I like the area we are in and love the family ward we attend. Both Matthew and I have callings in Young Mens and Young Womens. So last weekend we helped haul boxes into two huge trucks. It was a tiring day, but I had to work most of the day so I really didn't have to do much of the lifting! :) Anyway I think it has just hit Matthew that his family is moving away and we won't be able to see them for a while. The whole time while Matthew has been at BYU, his family has either been in Salt Lake or Orem--very close to go visit often. He is not used to having them far away (except for his mission of course!) But now its like the house is always so quiet. We used to always play games all day Sunday with them, and Matthew loved being close with is teenage brothers. So its a new change to be all alone in this big house even though we are only in the basement part of it. His family was so fun to be with and we will miss them. I guess the only good thing about this situation is now we are able to park in tha garage!

One Year Anniversary!

Last weekend Matthew and I celebrated our 1 yr anniversasry!! I can't believe its already been a year. Some people say that is the hardest year but for me this has been the most rewarding and blessed year so far! My husband is so wonderful and perfect for me. He takes such good care of me and I feel so lucky to have him! We have so much fun together whether we are going out together or just at home chillin. Our anniversary was on Sunday (thats what you get when you get married on a Saturday!) and then I had to work until about 10:30 on saturday night so we celebrated on Friday night. We didn't do anything over the top, but just went out to dinner and had a really good time. I forgot to bring my camera so I put up a weddig picture! One year down and many more to go!

Shanna appearently needs...

My cousin did this and it was really funny to read so I thought I would give it a try. You just go to google and type in "(Your name) needs" and then look at the first top ten things. So this is what I need according to Google:
1. Shanna needs a temporary husband (no thank you, I have a permanent one that I love)
2. Shanna needs to spend more time out of bed (I really don't sleep in THAT late!)
3. Shanna needs a kick in the pants (for what??)
4. Shanna needs a new pair of lungs (I think mine are just fine!)
5. Shanna needs to write a book (umm i beg to differ)
6. Shanna needs to be wearing a bikini. (No, believe me she doesn't!)
7. Shanna needs prayers too. (Don't mind getting prayers!)
8. Shanna needs help moving a file cabinet. (I have a strong husband to move things for me!)
9. Shanna needs love and care (yes!)
10. Shanna needs a new place to call home (I actually have a great home!)

Kind of fun to do and also kind of random!

Open Gym!

Jenna won our handstand contest!

So the other night my former roommates and I went to a gymnastics gym that had been rented out for the night. We got to play on all the equipment and trapolines. It was the funnest thing I have done in a while. We were doing all sorts of tricks and flips and I was tring to remember all the tumbeling I had done years ago in gymnastics. We were being really goofy but it was great! But it was also about midnight so we were kind of wired as well. So here are some pictures of us tumbeling or at least trying to. In the picture above we were jumping off this huge mat onto a trampoline and cole was nice enough to take our picture--we had to redo it about 10 times becuase everyone wanted to look somewhat coordinated! The morning after this I was so sore!

Graduation and Summer plans

I know I have some serious updating to do so here we go. First and the most exciting is that I am now a BYU grad! Graduation was so fun and it was nice to have my parents come in town. I was suprised to see President Hinckley at graduation. The whole crowd cheered when he came in. I also really enjoyed Dick Cheney's speech. Friday when I walked I was glad to not have tripped while on the stage but disappointed that I was called "Shauna" as I walked across. But I am so glad to be graduated and now for summer plans. I will be in Orem all summer. I will be working for my dad part time and for Ann Taylor part time. Other than that I will be setting up my classroom for next fall. Matthew is taking a biochem class and golfing this spring semester and them a chem class and english for summer term. He will also be working as a chem TA both spring and summer. I am loving the warm weather and the activities we can do outside now that it is warm! I am sad that most of my friends are not staying here for the summer but I will probably be keeping myself busy. Well thats it for now!
