This is our new home. We are very excited and are going to start moving in slowly. It's nothing too spectacular...a pretty typical Utah home...but, it's more than twice the size of our apartment...and I have never been so excited to have a storage room, playroom, and fenced back yard!!!!! I'm sure there will be more pictures to follow.
Teagan went on a field trip with his preschool to a local pet store and was sent home with a gold fish. Teagan would sit on the counter and talk to his fish and even play with his action figures with the fish...don't ask me how...he's got a great imagination. Teagan named him Fish Fishie John. Sooooo cute! Well, Fish Fishie John only lived 4 days. Soooo sad! But we had a good talk about the whole thing and now Teagan wants 4 sharks to replace his gold fish. Hmmmm. Maybe when we move into our new house. Better to have loved and lost then to never have loved at all....right.
So you know...yes, the picture below is of my grandparents on the Anderson side. I really, really wanted to post a more current pic of them as cute grandparents...but could not find one. But I will someday. My Grandma Anderson is still living in Endicott, WA. She remembers everyone's birthday, even makes her own cards, and is fun to talk to. For being 80 years old, she is actually quite liberal and has some great stories. Love you Grandma! My Papa Anderson died on Valentine's day 1998. Everyone....EVERYONE loved Papa. And he is missed dearly. He was the nicest, kindest, sweetest man you could ever meet. A great big man with a great big heart...and a great big voice. Beautiful singing voice. Two of the most special people I've ever known.
