I asked Kate to give us an update on how Paul is doing. Here it is:
He is doing well. He is at a base in Ghazni, Afghanistan and serves as the Orthopaedic surgeon on a forward surgical team. His job is to take care of American and coalition troops with broken bones from combat related trauma. He says it’s a good team of people and the food is not so bad – he never complains about anything! It’s hard to be apart, but it gives Paul peace knowing the kids and I have the best support system here in Goshen. I don’t know what I’d do without Jane and John and my parents. They have been the biggest help.
When Paul returns at the end of March, he will resume his job at Ft. Drum caring for the soldiers of the 10th Mountain Division. We will move up to Carthage, NY and FINALLY settle in to one place for a while.
We are both appreciative of the love, support and prayers from our family!!
Paul, we are amazed at your many accomplishments. Know that you and your fellow soldiers are in our hearts and prayers for a successful mission and safe return.
Here is Paul’s address:

…a mathematical equation, I don’t think so. Tony and Cindy hosted a wonderful luncheon on Sunday for the October birthdays. Mark 14 and Michele 16 both on the 22nd, Charlie was 25 on the 21st, I cleared 50 on the 9th, and Uncle Paul on top at 60 on the 19th. Missing from the party and also sharing an October birthdate were little Michael Carey 2 on the 4th, Josemine Carey was 27 on the 5th and Luke Antinori 16 on the 25th.
Tony and Cindy put out a terrific spread. There was a delicious minestrone, grilled chicken & steak, hamburgers, potatoes, vegetables and salad, lasagna, Nonna’s zucchini quiche, and Loanna made eggplant and stuffed jalapeno. Never a shortage of desserts, there were lots of cake, pies, and cookies.
Thank you Tony and Cindy for being gracious hosts.
Anthony John was baptized this past Sunday, October 12. Adorable little AJ quietly took in the ceremony while proud parents Shavon and Anthony, God parents Dan and Kaitlyn and the congregation of friends and family looked on. He wore his cousin Mason’s baptism outfit. During the ceremony Shavon held the 65-year-old Antinori baptism gown under AJ. Cindy relayed to me that 65 years ago Uncle Charlie wore this outfit, 32 years ago her son Anthony wore the baptism gown and now Aj had the gown underneath him during the christening. The gown is very small so in order for any baby to wear it they would have had to be baptized between 3 weeks to two months. Aj is close to 4 months and the outfit was too small for him to wear it.
We celebrated later at La Havana 59 in Moonachie for a delicious Cuban meal. We enjoyed a slide show of photos of AJ and early photos of Shavon and Anthony.
Shavon passed on the photos to share.

Congratulations to Joe and Lena on the birth of their new baby boy. James Antonio joins big brother Johnny. Joe says mom and baby are doing great. They are grateful to have love and support from family and friends and much help from Lena’s mom Teresa and welcome visits from Aunt Betsy.
Here are some photos from David and Josemine’s east coast wedding celebration. Thank you Debbi for taking great pictures.
September has a sneaky way of coming up fast on you. August was a busy month. We tied up the summer beach season with a grand 65th birthday party for my brother-in-law Charlie. The party was a lot of fun and the weather was perfect. Summer ended quick for me because I started my new job the last week in August. Although I’ve been very busy I feel blessed to be busy with all good things.
Here are some photos from Charlie’s party:
We shifted gears this past weekend and went up to Goshen to celebrate the east coast wedding celebration of Drs. David and Josemine Carey for those of us who couldn’t attend their wedding in California this past May. Like Jane & John’s 40th anniversary party it was also held at Delancey’s. We had a nice time catching up with everyone and enjoyed the opportunity to spend more time with the Careys and their friends. David and Josemine played a artfully done video that captured the day of their wedding and individual photo montages of the couple set to a mixed set of songs. I didn’t have my camera that night and I’m hoping to post some photos from Debbi when I get them.
