Happy Thanksgiving!

Hope everyone had a nice holiday with some delicious food! (Well those in America anyway!) I'm so thankful my mom and sister were able to be with us this year to celebrate (and help me cook!)

Here are a few pictures - and a bonus video! -

Kayla showing off her flexibility (and not wanting her picture taken!)








Oh the end of this video just cracks me up! Kayla sucks on her arm, yes her arm as opposed to her thumb or fingers, she doesn't do it all the time - usually when she falls asleep and just for comfort. So near the end of the video she put her arm in her mouth and that's my hand pulling her arm away and holding her arm down; she was not happy about that!

I love the pictures. Kayla's bangs look too cute and it's always nice to see pics of your mom and Kelly. I love the "family" pic of you, Joe and Kayla too. I need one for my wallet. The video was adorable. I love how she told you to let go. Cracked me up.

Good pics Michelle. And the video was too cute. I love what she does with her arm when shes tired, my grandbaby sucks her thumb and I think its adorable.When Gaige gets tired he plays with his ear. Happy to hear you had a great Thanksgiving and your Mother and sister were there. Thanks for the pics!

She's such a little sweetheart, tugs at my heart every time I see a video or pictures of her:-) So glad you enjoyed a wonderful Thanksgiving with your family!!!

Christina said...

It is really cute. Ia m glad you had the chance to be with your sister and mom. Vincent did have turkey too yesterday. The babykind, but he ate the whole jar :-)

LauraJ said...

it's so nice you can take video to remember these things by. someday she'll stop doing it and you'll be like i miss that little girl who nuzzled on the crook of her elbow.
lovely pictures as always

kids have the funniest cute habits-aaron used to put his one little finger under his pacifier when he fell asleep. he wanted to touch the rubber with his finger. it was silly but cute. i have one picture of it.

Wow, you and your sister look a lot alike! And Kayla's so funny ("gobble gobble", "Let go!"). My kids watched the little video with me and thought she was SO cute.

Loved the photos. Family time is so precious

You all look so much alike! Wonderful pics ~ Happy Thanksgiving!

Kathleen Marie said...

You guys are all so beautiful! Wow, what a gorgeous family! Kayla is adorable and she speaks really well. My eldest daughter went through a period of sucking on her big toe...no kidding. The doctor said it was because it was bigger than her thumb but she outgrew it. Kids do the darndest things!

Barb said...

It's so fun to hear her sweet little voice, Michelle. And yours too! I love love the third photo - what a gorgeous family you are.

Please feel free to put just as many videos of that little angel in your posts as you can. So much fun.

Oh, it is such a blessing that your wonderful Mom and Sister were able to come spend Thanksgiving with you! It is nice to have a little extra help in the kitchen too! :) The pictures are so nice, you all look great!

Kayla looks so cute with bangs! Oh and the video is precious! So cute, I guess she told you Mommy! hehe!

I stumbled on your site through a friends blog (accidentally) ... but was intrigued .. I, too, have a little one with ds that is ten years old. He's the joy of our family ... and has big blue eyes too (lol). I'll be back to check out more of your blog and links.

I am so glad you had your family to share Thanksgiving with. Kayla is so sweet and her speech is sooooooo good! She inspires the rest of us with children with Down syndrome you are a wonderful mom!

DeAnna said...

Looks like you had a great time. And the video is so sweet and funny! She is so cute and its fun to see her "in action" -- Its like you get used to seeing all the pictures and then realize she really isn't just a cute little doll that you pose in pictures. :)

Dori (Aviva's mommy) said...
