jQuery sortable no longer working?

I have been using jQuery sortable, but for some strange reason it's no longer working and I am pretty sure I have not changed my code.
 
The function below is getting the number of menutab but not the position, which show up as undefined?
 
Any ideas on what is going wrong?

 $(function() {
		$("#sortable1").sortable({'update': function(event, ui){
		 
		 var position='';
		  
		  alert("sortable1 this.children.length"+this.children.length);
		  
		  
		  for (i=0; i < this.children.length; i++) {
			if (position.length) {
			  position += ',';
			}
			position += this.children[i].icon_id ;
		  }
			  
			   alert("sortable1"+position);
			   $.ajax({ url: "arrange_icons.php?group_name=C&position="+position });
		}
	  }); 

 });




<div id="slickbox1">
<ul id="sortable1" class="connectedSortable">
        <li class="my_icon" icon_id='99'>
        <div class="menutab">
<div class="menutabicon"><a href="view_tutorials.php"><img src="/admin/icons/images/tutorials.jpg" alt="Help Tutorials" width="50" height="50" border="0"/></a></div>

There were several problems - see below for working script
<script type="text/javascript">
 $(function() {
  $("#sortable1").sortable({'update': function(event, ui){
      var position='';

      alert("sortable1 this.children.length"+$(this).children.length);
      var kids = $(this).children();

      for (i=0; i < kids.length; i++) {
        if (position.length) {
          position += ',';
        }
        position += $(kids[i]).attr('icon_id');
      }

      alert("sortable1"+position);
      $.ajax({ url: "arrange_icons.php?group_name=C&position="+position });
    }
  }); 
});
</script>
