Like a Flag on a Pumpkin

 September 11 2001 ish

Shortly after September 11, 2001 - Noah was just seven months old and I was a stay at home mom- we painted the American flag on a big pumpkin and set it on our porch. Somehow an elephant costume worked its way in there, too, though I don't remember why. I think it was the warmest thing he owned.

Do you remember what you were doing on that day? Where Were You on September 11, 2001?

And such a neat update- here's a video of the students and teacher in the classroom with President Bush on 9/11 and where they are now.

Most Embarrassing Blog Moments (I'm sharing mine!)

I'm thinking that my new feature for Sundays (eventually) will be about favorite book finds throughout the week. We have so many filling our shelves because I love buying them second hand (and new!) on top of our weekly trips to the library. So I ask you, What Did You Read To Your Kids Last Night? Would love your suggestions.

I also might continue my break from Twitter and Facebook on the weekends, or maybe all weekend at least after a little Saturday morning indulging....


  1. Some of those "where were you" comments made me cry.

    This is so intense all over again.

  2. I was snuggled in my bed with my 8 month old when the phone rang and I first heard the news.

  3. I was in Jr. High living in the DC area. At the time of the attacks I was totally oblivious to everything that was going on until our principal made the announcement. I could feel the tension in the room as people worried about their parents that worked at the pentagon. Phones didn't work and the next few days were spent at a friends house watching the footage over and over. I remember everyone putting a flag on the back of their cars that day.

  4. I shared my memory here.

    Also, I cannot believe how little Noah is in that photo!

  5. I was in the teacher's lounge during lunch. As a first year teacher, I had no friends at work and lived in a vacuum during the day while teaching. I overheard someone talking about it, and followed a few people to a classroom with the news playing. They kept showing the same clip over and over and I kept asking, "What's going on? I don't understand."


Your comment is gonna totally make my day!
