September 11, 2011

I went to our local 911 dedication today.  It is a tribute that our city has been doing every year since 911.  There is a flag for each of the victims of 911.  It is quite an awe inspiring scene.  As a part of the 10th anniversary they added a card to each flag that gave a brief bio on the victim.  I felt a special pause as I took my daughter to see the dedication.  She is only 6 years old and was obviously born after 911.  It makes me very thankful to all that serve our country and have chosen to put their lives on the line for our freedom.  My heart is heavy for all of the families that have to live without one of their family members as a result of the tragedy on this day in history.  All I can say is Thank you and God bless!

Meet little Alex.  He is the newborn baby to one of my best friend's in the world.  It feels like it took forever for him to arrive but he was worth the wait.  He is so adorable...the perfect combination of both mom and dad!  I'm sure he will be an avid BYU fan but with his mother's sensibility.  Congratulations Keith and Rushell!

This little guy is so adorable.  He is the latest addition to the Edwards family.  I think his dad is grateful for the addition of a boy in their girl filled home.  Although his older sisters are thrilled to have a baby in the house, his sister Sable did not love having to sit for pictures with him.  I've included one of the moments of controlled chaos for all you mom's out there who feel alone in dealing with toddlers and small babies!  I love moments like these...
