keeping up with the joneses

{with the mary, emily and abby, plus one fat baby}

i have loved the jones family from the day i met abby and emily at girls' camp when i was a young and spry 13.

i love them so much, i spent a summer with them in nauvoo.

i love them so much, i got abby together with my good friend jonathan, and now they are the happily married dunfords.

i love them so much i don't mind that emily never returns my phone calls. (though i sure would like to see her more since we live five minutes away from each other now. emily, are you reading this?)

i love them so much, i briefly considered attending my 10 year high school reunion, just to hang out with them. (i got over that one, though. sorry abby!)

but i was perfectly happy, you might even say thrilled, to go to emily's house just a few blocks away when i heard abby and mary were in town with baby isaac. it's probably clear from this picture why he is more often called the fatness. this kid is only nine months old.

i sort of hogged him all night. but i don't feel bad about it since he wouldn't exist if it weren't for me.

(you're welcome!)

As a Jones, I am such a fan of this "keeping up with us" thing. We set a high bar, do we not? And don't worry, Baby Isaac: Baby Harry is more often than not referred to as "Milk Jug" and "Tubs," so you're in good company.

Oh, there is no keeping up with me. But I am noticing a trend in the Frances introducing people and them getting hitched trend.

Frances! It is a good thing I couldn't convince you to come to Michigan for the reunion. I am sitting in Omaha with Jonathan as I type this. Let's just say, things didn't work out.

We love you!! I am so glad we were able to see you. Don't give up on Emily. In fact just go over and knock on her door or text her...Do you text people? When you do, do you capitalize?

Love ya
