Ashley's Goodbye Party!

Since Ashley is leaving for college this week,
we had a little party to celebrate.
She had lots of sweet friends and dear families
that stopped by to wish her well.
Her kind heart, contagious laughter and
sweet smile will truly be missed by so many!
Ashley's BFF's, Spencer and Matt
came early to the party to give Ashley a large fern,
decorated with festive ornaments and a plant.
There is special meaning behind this funny gift
but I'm not sure what it is nor should I share it at the time.
But there was a lot of squeals and laughter
that took place at the time when the gift was given.
The kids "hiding" behind the fern.
What is Ashley supposed to do with a
large fern at college?
Dad offered to plant it in the backyard
and care for it while she is away.
Ashley and her dearest friend and
favorite Sunday School teacher, Julie Hansen.
The first tears of the night were shed
when Ashley had to say "goodbye" to Sister Hansen.
Ashley and Haley. Best friends since 1st grade.

Ashley and one of her favorite families in the ward,
the McNaughton's. They definitely have the cutest kids!

Ash and cute little Brittany Ragan. Love that girl!

Ashley's going to miss these cute kids!
Aren't they adorable?!
