One of many hero's on 9/11

A true hero story was told on ESPN this morning and it touched my heart so much that I had to share it with all of you. I have tried to not watch anything that  had to do with 9-11 because it was to painful to remember that day 10 years ago. I was getting ready for work and had the TV on. I couldn’t believe what I was seeing. It didn’t look real, it looked like a movie instead. All I could do was stare trying to make my brain translate what I was seeing. When I managed to go to work, there was everyone in front of the TV in disbelief.
Today watching all the families telling their stories of their loved ones that they lost, just brings tears to my eyes and heart. Now they have a beautiful memorial that honors them.

This morning my hubby treated us to breakfast since I saved him some money. He was saving up for a Gamo air rifle that he saw on the Internet. He found one at the Rocklin sporting store that he really liked, I think he didn’t want to wait for the UPS delivery. We went to my favorite place in downtown Roseville and enjoyed our time together.

Later today I made 1 of my daughters favorite foods, stuffed green peppers. They turned out really good.
These were Kim's and Haley's.
And these were ours.
The boys were upset because ours didn't look as good as the girls.
