The Saturday Morning Post - September

Greetings friends, it's been a while since I've posted. It's also been a while since I've read any blogs. I have such little time to spend on the computer, and the two lowest priorities for me are Facebook and Blogger. Anyway, here's my post -

Today, my thoughts and prayers are for victims and families of the September 11th terrorist attacks. It's hard to believe it's been 9 years. I can only imagine the sad memories the family members must still have reflecting back on that day - remembering saying goodbye to their loved ones as they left for work, or boarded their plane. I hope the family members find peace in remembering the good times and special moments they spent with their loved ones before this tragedy occurred.

Today, my thoughts and prayers are also for those affected by the devastating fire in San Bruno, California. I find it eerily similar to the people in the Word Trade Center: no warning, just an explosion and fire, followed by an evacuation. From what I hear on the news, this type of explosion could happen almost anywhere given the thousands of miles of gas pipelines running below us.

Today, my thoughts and prayers are also for those affected by the wild fires in Colorado, the floods and severe weather in the Midwest (remnants of Tropical Storm Hermine), and for people in other parts of the world, such as Haiti and Pakistan. There are a lot of people in a lot of places that need help. All I can offer them is a prayer.

Here at my home, everything is the same as it's been. We just keep going day-to-day, week-to-week, etc., doing the same routine things we've always done. I know it doesn't sound exciting, but it's our life, and we're grateful to have it. Below are some recent pictures of my family that I would like to share.

I can't get any more recent than this one - taken yesterday afternoon - "The Kids". This one didn't make the "cut". Laura chose one where Jordan (the baby) was looking at the camera, but that picture didn't include Jordy (our dog). The chosen picture was enlarged, duplicated, framed, and gift wrapped for Grandparents' Day (this Sunday).

Jordan will be 6 weeks old this coming Monday. He is doing great: eating on a fairly regular basis, sleeping for hours at a time during the over-night period, and is not as fussy as Nina was. Here's a picture of him getting his first bath:

Laura had a doctor's appointment, and naturally took Jordan with her. Here he is in his car seat:

Several weeks ago, Nina went to the La Habra Corn Festival with her grandmother. As they were walking around, they came across a booth run by an organization involved in pet rescue and adoptions. Nina was moved by what she learned and decided that she wanted to help raise money for the foundation. It's called The Fuzzy Pet Foundation. Nina came up with the idea of having a bake sale, and donating the proceeds to TFPF. TFPF happened to have a pet adoption event at a PETCO in a nearby city, so Nina, her friend Rosemary, and yours truly, sold cookies, cupcakes and rice crispy treats to store customers. Here are the girls at their table:

Last week, Nina celebrated her 10th birthday. Nina's birthday always falls during the first week of school. On the week before, Laura and I took Nina and her friend Bethany to Disneyland:

Last Friday night, at the end of the first week of school, Laura threw Nina a birthday party and sleep-over. One of the highlights was for the girls to watch the premier of Camp Rock 2. The girls didn't make it to the end of the movie, but not because they were sleepy -

They wanted to have a dance party:

Brady also celebrated a birthday since my last post, but he didn't have a birthday party / sleep-over / dance party. We just went out to dinner to a restaurant of his choice. I don't have a picture of that to post, but I leave you with a picture of his mom holding his brother. Here's my honey-bunny, Laura:

See you next month on a Saturday morning.
