The story of Den the Angry Bird

 So last Christmas, as in Christmas 2011, Jordan got an Angry Bird from Santa that he named Den. He went everywhere with Jordan and Jordan loved him.Some time this last summer Jordan lost Den and after retracing our steps, calling every place we had been the past month to see if he was in the lost in found we gave up. I even went through all of our pictures and can pinpoint the day we lost him because he was in every picture.
Anyway, I thought about ordering a new Den, but the problem I had is that I ordered Den off Ebay from a company in China that makes knock off Angry Birds. Den never really looked like the real angry bird and I knew if I ordered one he would look a little different from Den.
One day we were walking in the mall in Ogden when I found an Angry Bird that looked a little like Den in a Chinese discount store. We bought him, but then had to figure out a story as to why he looked different and where he had been. So Benji came up with a story and we laminated it and bound it and this is it:
(Hopefully you can read the words if you click on the pictures to enlarge them. Some of them photos are crooked because I was trying to take pictures as Hannah kept trying to take the book.)

I actually got a little teary eyed the first time I read the story because I could imagine how excited Jordan was going to be when he heard the story and because my kids have the best daddy.
Jordan was so excited to have Den back and has welcomed him home even though he looks a little different from the last Den.
