Saying Goodbye




Well we have officially moved! We had some fun parties saying goodbye to friends {above is a pic of a small get together of my childhood friends Ashleigh and Heather, below are my fun Herriman friends who threw me a Farewell Brunch}. It was hard to say goodbye to our friends and family! We will miss our life in Utah.

Since moving out of our home on December 21, we have spent time in Sandy with my Grandparents and then in Payson with Ben's family. We had a great time, I will have to get some pics and more commentary up about that soon! We left for CA on December 23 and have been there up until yesterday when we left for Miami for our cruise we are set to leave on in an hour! Thanks Mom for watching the kids!


We had a really fun time with our families this Christmas, it was a great way to send us off to our new adventure. We went sledding in Utah and we played games and told stories in California. I don't want to ruin the surprise for when my sister Katie gets famous and can tell this story on Jay Leno, but it is hilarious and is one we can't forget! She had purchased a swimming suit at K-Mart a few years ago and then had second thoughts so she went to return it. The customer service agent asked her if she had worn the swimming suit and she said no. Then the lady proceeded to sniff the crotch of the swimming suit just to make sure! Katie just stood there, floored, wondering if she really just saw what she thought she saw. We laugh so hard every time she tells that story! Good times.


Hope you all had a wonderful Christmas and Happy New Year from us!

Okay, one of the best stories Ansen and I have ever heard! Another time you really wish someone was with you so you could look at them with that look of -did you just see that? I'm a little late with getting my picture up, but it'll be there soon. Have fun on the cruise (how could you not?) Ash

How is it that just reading your blog made me still laugh about it? That story is seriously one in a million, don't worry Ash if you thought it was good reading it, wait till you hear it in real life! It's a goodie.

It's always hard to say goodbye, but I know you guys will have great adventures in Australia. I can't wait to read about them!

I found this blog through a friend of a friend and so on. Ben and I were neighbors my freshman year in college at USU. I am not sure if you remember me or not. I use to be Marissa Neumann (now Rasmussen). It is so fun to see your cute family. I hope all is well and if you would like you can find our blog at whatmenliveby.blogspot.com.

Nat, I could not stop laughing about the crotch sniffer!! haha so funny. I can always count on your blog for a good laugh. So glad you could squeeze us in for a final hoorah. I am jealous you are on your cruise! March can't come fast enough!!!

Sounds like you guys are crazy busy. We are sad you are moving and we didn't even have a chance to get together while you were closer! How long will you be there? Hey we changed our blog address because of Nate's new job he deals with a lot of gangs. We didn't want to make it private, but we didn't want to to come up when you google his or my name so our new address is
http://ourcranefamily.blogspot.com

Also, would you mind taking our last name off your link? Love reading your blog. Hope all is well.

thanks!

FUNNY STORY! Sometimes I wonder about some people's minds. Like what goes on in their heads?? Thanks for the story- I had to read it to Taylor. We both had a good laugh.
