Goodbye Jatens, we will miss you!


This Sunday was our last Sunday dinner with the Jaten family. They are moving to Mesa, Arizona on Thursday and we are going to miss them so much. I have never lived far away from my twin sister and she has truly been one of my best friends my entire life. I will miss visiting her and hanging out with the kids. Life is going to be a little bit more boring now without those two crazy little rug rats running around. This moving buisness is very heartbreaking, but we are excited for them and for all the new opportunities ahead of them. Goodbye Jatens, we love you!



Emerson HATES having his picture taken, so this shot with Unkie Dan took bribing him with a lit candle on a cake that he could blow out himself, even though it wasn't any one's birthday. That is one of Emerson's favorite things to do. After he blew the candle out, he was all confused because we didn't sing happy birthday, so we sang happy birthday to "nobody"! (I wish bribing worked as easily on Dan too, he equally hates having his picture taken:)

Cute post, we're so sad they are moving too. It will be so weird to not see them when we come to Utah to visit. Then, it will be sad to not see you guys when you move this summer! Oh how things change. :(

Hard to think of Ashley without Lindsey. My kids used to sing - "Ashley, Lindsey we all fall down!" You guys are all growing up and moving all over the country.

The blogs have been so fun to help us stay in touch. I love your comments and reading about what you and Dan are doing. Things do change but families are forever....

You are so gorgeous. That's all I can think when I look at your pictures, pretty, pretty. It will be sad to have your sister gone, but then you'll be moving too. Where ever you go, you'll find your family away from home!

I didn't know they were moving?! Good Luck to them.

And I completely agree with you about the weather...how depressing. When are we just going to get that warm summer weather we are all craving!? :)

Also, have you guys made a decision about school? Hey, send me an email and I'll tell you the reasons that we choose UCLA...not that it will forsure help you guys, but maybe something to think about. :) (rasfamily@gmail.com)

By the way...not sure if I mentioned this in my last little message, but Hello gorgeous! You are so beautiful!

Hello!!! I am so glad that you found my blog. It is good to hear from you. The other day I was thinking about my highschool friends that I never talk, but would like to, and you were top on my list.
It is to bad that Ashley and her husband are moving, but I have lived in Las Vegas for almost 6 years now and I promise it isn't that bad living away from your family. You will talk to her a lot. Keep in touch! I would love to see you next time I am in town, or by chance if you guys ever get down here. You know, our house is a great stopping point on your way to Mesa!!!!

After I posted my comment I saw your count down to Vegas. If you have time I would love to meet up with you.
