But first, look at this video that CBS broadcasted of the dire situation all across Haiti. Remember the Hands and Feet Project...also in Haiti, plummeted by Gustav? Well, then Hanna and Ike hit after that. Craziness. Check out Brock's blog to see the latest. Please do what you can, if you can.

We have so much to be thankful for, esp. in light of that. Now for some home videos that show you just what we have to be thankful for...
Night before last, Grady had the request of pancakes for supper. Sounded good to us, so we all worked at it. Mama made the batter and then Hadley, Eissa, and Mama washed dishes while Grady and Daddy (mostly Grady...so grown up) made the pancakes. Cass just sat there watching and being cute.
Giggles all around yesterday at lunch.
And this is Eissa yesterday afternoon. The way she says some things is just so very cute. I had to capture some of it the best I could. She's such a cute little mess.
Oh, and yes...eissa's flip-flops are mismatched. They are hand-me-down loners from Hadley and do just fine here around the house. We are getting some new flip-flops (all of us) at the end of the month. Just wanted to acknowledge that...I'm sure some of you will notice.
Also, the video is pretty bad quality and you can't hear her very well. But, flip-flop, for instance, is 'bip-bop'...cute huh? And her 'water' and 'I love you' sound very much the same. Sometimes we think she is being so sweet and loving when she is really just asking for something to drink...it's funny. :)
I'll be packing again non-stop this weekend while Joel is here to be with the kids...he will also be trying to fit in other things to get ready for the move. We hope to be finalizing where we are going to stay from the first of November (when the family that owns this house returns) until mid-December (when we will be able to take over the house we are moving into for the next year). Please keep us in your prayers concerning that. Thanks. Have a great weekend!!
