Zoo Monkeys

This is Belen and Jack at the Santa Ana Zoo... this is right befire she got scared of the loud screaming monkeys. She and monkeys don't have a good track-record and these crazy monkeys didn't help. The second picture is one I tried to take of her infront of the oh-so-scarey monkeys. Besides the monkeys, we had a nice time. It's kinds of a sad little zoo, not many actual zoo animals, but there was a big playground and a farm- yes, a farm at the zoo.

Here are three generations of Andersen men. Note the pale Danish skin and red hair (well, if any of them had any hair, it would be red). So cute! It's all up to Thyssen to carry on the Andersen name! Good luck little buddy!

Feeling Thankful

Our family is just feeling thankful today for this home we have to live in and for the wonderful people who are letting us live here :) Belen has such a good time playing here, running up and down the side walk and walking to the neighborhood park to play. We are truly blessed! Thanks to everyone who has helped us out over the last few months. We love you all!

It's my party and I'll cry if I want to....

Today was Penny's 3rd Bday party and she spent most of the party in the house watching cartoons and sulking. I think all the friends and people there was a bit too much for her to handle. She had a great time opening gifts, though!! She is so cute... Belen had a great time celebrating her little friend.

We're in!

We have moved in now and are very happy!! The house is almost all the way fixed up and is starting to look more like a home and less like a tool shed. We went to the new ward and loved it.. there are a lot of young families and Belen already made a little friend. We went to Dland yesterday for the first time since summer started, ate giant corn dogs, and visited with old friends.
