Captain America and His Girl

I mentioned a couple of posts ago that


I'm a little bit excited, can you tell? She is one of my favorite people in the world and she found a GREAT guy and I'm just so happy for her.

In March, she moved to Austin Texas. She had been living pretty close to us and we were sad when she decided to move that far away. We didn't know the reason at the time - heck, I don't even think she knew the reason. But now we know, and that reason looks a little like this:

She met him online soon after she moved out there and they are getting married in November. They came out here a couple of weeks ago and we got to meet him and I got to take their engagement pictures. So fun.

He used to be a captain in the army, so we call him Captain America. And the Marvel Captain America's girlfriend's name is Sharon Carter - which is my sister's name! :)

And they are really great together!

He's a successful business owner, a pilot with his own plane, has multiple degrees, and is a certified journeyman electrician in 16 states. Oh, and he also just won a state-wide wrestling competition. 

Marty says, "Oh great, another overachiever", like our other brother-in-law, the FBI director. (who also speaks fluent spanish, has 2 degrees including an MBA and went to BYU on a dual baseball and vocal scholarship.)

But he would have to be pretty great to be good enough for our sister. And the most important thing is that he is a wonderful person, who loves her, and is a faithful member of our church.

 Isn't she purty?! That is her natural hair color!
And even though this means she's never moving back, I suppose we can let her go to live with Captain America.
