Jenelle Evans and David Eason got in some “alone time” over Thanksgiving weekend, with the fired Teen Mom 2 stars leaving their two youngest kids, Kaiser and Ensley, in the care of David’s sister April Eason.
The Sun was the first to report (and The Ashley can confirm) that David and Jenelle took off for a beach vacation on Thanksgiving night or the next day. While Jenelle posted plenty of family-filled photos from their turkey day festivities, she did not mention her vacation with David on social media.
“They told the kids they needed some alone time, and that’s why they weren’t invited,” The Sun‘s source stated.
According to The Ashley’s sources, though, David and Jenelle’s decision to involve his sister April may not be completely random.
Jenelle’s oldest son, Jace, was not at the Thanksgiving fiesta, of course. (As The Ashley previously reported, Jenelle has no contact currently with Jace, and David is not allowed to communicate with or be near Jace, due to the child abuse charge he received in October for allegedly assaulting the 14-year-old.)
However, according to The Ashley’s sources, at least some of David’s family members believe there’s a chance that Jace may come to live with David’ sister April.
“That is something Jenelle had been pushing for,” the source said. “If Jace couldn’t come back to live with her, Jenelle wanted to have him go live with April.
“It’s super-unlikely, though, because April has no biological relationship with Jace,” the source continued. “But Jenelle has stated that Jace gets along with April’s son who is around the same age as him. But that’s not enough to get a judge to place him at April’s.”
According to one local, “April had her and David’s brother, James, staying at her house up until recently. James was just released from prison in September. He literally just left April’s, but we don’t know if he left because she wants to make her home look like a better option for Jace, or if he just left on his own.”

Currently, Jace is in the custody of CPS and, although Jenelle and her mom Barbara Evans had a court date on Tuesday in regard to Jace, nothing new was decided. He is not currently living with Barbara.
“It’s highly unlikely that a judge would put Jace into April’s care, but that is what Jenelle and David were pushing for and still may be,” the source added.
David is set to head to court on Wednesday to answer to his charge of child abuse stemming from the alleged incident with Jace.
