Love that sweet smile!

The ceremony was really awesome, and this year was the first that they gave the Spouses an award! Dr. Whitworth made a point of mentioning the wifia, and said that of all the residency classes he's seen, we did the best job of supporting our doctor spouses, supporting each other as a group, and that we were the best looking group so far too! LOL!

I loved the wifia comments from Dr. Whitworth. I thought that was so amazing how there was such an emphasis placed on family and faith. And, yes, you Wifia girls are hot stuff!!! I see many reunions in your future. How cool to have friends for life like you have in those awesome girls. :)

Thanks for posting these great photos. We are so proud of Philip & you. What an awesome accomplishment!! Could not have been done without your full support, Joia. The only thing that would have made it better (for us) is if we could have been there in person.

You are one very special family and I am excited to see/hear where God will take you next.

Hugs & ♥x4

Ok, I'm finally going to just ask...what does wifia stand for or mean??? I've been wondering and wondering, but too chicken to ask. Please tell me! :)

Liz, "Wifia" is the name that was given to our wives group way back at the beginning by Tiffany's husband Matt. He said that we were like the "Wife Mafia" (we are a powerful force to be reckoned with, always have the inside scoop on stuff etc)- so he called us the "Wifia". =)
