Guess Who Got To Meet Kayla?

Sarah, meet Kayla.

She asked Kayla what her name was and how old she was. For the past few weeks Kayla has started saying she's 4 again, and we remind her, "no...how old are you?" or "you had a birthday remember?" Then she'll say 5. When Palin asked her how old she actually answered 5 the first time! LOL








Sarah Palin was in Roswell on Sun. The Down syndrome foundation in Roswell was given tickets for the event and we were asked if we wanted to come. We thought, "why not?"

The kids were both amazingly good yesterday. It's a little over 2 hrs to get to Roswell, then we were in the airport hanger for about 5 hrs. We went to another family's house for dinner afterwards...thankfully Lucas slept the whole way home!

Palin said something yesterday that I just couldn't help but agree with...when she met Kayla she said "She has the most beautiful eyes!" Yeah, we know :)

Get It Down; 31 for 21

I would think anyone would recognize what beautiful eyes she has. So glad you enjoyed your afternoon.

Jeanette said...

I love the title for the post... Guess who got to meet Kayla? That is so appropriate. Those of us who know you and your family through cyberspace know how wonderful she is. And YES, she does have amazing eyes! Couple that with her brilliant smile and who wouldn't want to stop and chat with her. What a great opportunity. I wonder if Palin will be attending a Buddy walk this month? Just wondering?

Tammy said...

That is awesome, Michelle!
I know that if she does get into office, she will be a wonderful advocate for people with Downs Syndrome...I would be SO excited to meet her!


We didn't meet someone quite that famous this weekend, but we did have a brush with fame, so come over and see! :)

Hugs,
~Tammy

That is so awesome that Sarah Palin got to meet Kayla! She's an uber lucky woman :)

Lianna said...

Wow! That is amazing! On all counts. I can't help but wonder how Sarah Palin is doing...busy with the election but I am sure there are many other things she is working through. Meeting Kayla was probably a really good thing for her. I can't imagine how hard it is to be without Trig daily.

Chris said...

Lucky Sarah!

I would love to just sit down and talk to her. Not as a candidate, but as another mom who is just starting this journey.

CrackerJacks said...

How exciting! And yes, she has fantastic eyes!

That's awesome that Sarah got to meet Kayla! I think that if she ends up in office, she will make a wonderful advocate for people with Down Syndrome.

Without a doubt, Kayla has beautiful eyes.

How are you?

Nancy M. said...

That is so cool! I would love to meet Kayla too! Cool pictures!

A Life Full of Love said...

Aw, that is so awesome that you met her!! I love that she talked to Kayla. How cool!!

Barb said...

Oh my word, Michelle, how absolutely wonderful. I like Sarah Palin even more now, now that she's seen and acknowledged Kayla's beautiful blueberry eyes.

And what a coincidence - Sarah Palin is in my city, Grand Junction, tonight! I so wish I could go but my friend Peggy is arriving from the other side of the mountains and somehow, I think I should probably be here when she drives up. LOL

What a great opportunity this was. Thank you for sharing the photos with us.

Michelle,

That is so cool. Aren't you glad you're blogging, so you have this place to put these stories and photos to save for your kids. This one tops the charts.

Sandra said...

Awwww that is so awesome Michelle :)

We also agree, Kayla has the most beautiful eyes.

jessica @ raising joey said...

ahhhhhh, I'm so jealous!!! Too cool!

Omaha Mama said...

She does have beautiful eyes! There was ONE time (only one) that I was moved while watching the republican convention. When Sarah Palin mentioned being a voice for people with disabilities. I liked that a lot. Whether by choice or by circumstance, I believe that she would be. If she's vice-president, I guess that would be one thing that she would have going for her. How exciting that Kayla will always have that memory.

Karen said...

How cool! Yes no one could ever forget those Blueberry eyes :-)

Melissa said...

Oooh of course she noticed the beautiful eyes.

Now I may not like Sarah Palin but that was really sweet of her to talk to your daughter!

chelle said...

Heidi said...

Well of course, she does have the most beautiful eyes. What a great story and pics.

much more than a mom said...

She most certainly does. ;-)

Cheri said...

Wow...that is so fun! She does have beautiful eyes... big blueberry ones! :)

Kim said...

That is so cool! She came to our hometown and I could kick myself for not taking Mattie! She still wasn't 100 percent after her visit to the ER that weekend and I didn't know if she'd even have a chance to meet her. Mattie and Trig are very close in age. I'm so glad Kayla got to meet her!

Tara said...

Thank you so much for sharing these pictures! Wow - I'm so glad you all go to go.

Kayla definitely has gorgeous eyes! Palin is, unfortunately, a complete embarrassment... but at least she could be an ambassador for Down Syndrome!

Sgt and Mrs Hub said...

That's awesome!! I bet it made Sarah Palin's day to meet Kayla! :)

Bonita said...

Lucky Sarah! She's the envy of all of us who have never met Kayla personally, but feel as though we know her.

I'm glad that two of my favorite ladies met and made history together.

Robin said...

That is so cool! And how fun that she made the comment about her eyes!

I am in Washington DC right now and this morning I went to the Holocaust Museum. One of the most emotional exhibits for me was the one regarding how the Nazi's exterminated the mentally handicapped. I can't even put into words how it made me feel. How twisted and demented were the beliefs of that evil regime.

I love how you celebrate sweet little Kayla! She is a gift and a blessing to our world.

Nisa said...

That's really cool, Meesh! Love the pictures.

Killlashandra said...

Well of course she has the most beautiful blue eyes! She's too precious. What a fun event to be invited to go too. :)

Michelle said...

Oh, how neat! I bet that was really cool.

Michelle said...

Super exciting!

JaybirdNWA said...

I'll bet that was very exciting to be a part of. She appears to have a lot of energy about her. Wherever one stands in their views, she is definitely a very strong voice in America for the many children with Down syndrome and others with disabiliities.

joan said...

That is so much fun! And I love the video too. Kayla does have pretty eyes.

Michelle said...

How wonderful!

the three amigos said...

How totally exciting!!!

PastorMac's Ann said...

That's terrific Michelle. What a great memory for all of you. Kayla's eye are pretty amazing, glad that Governor Palin had the sense to notice!

A Mama's Blog (Heather) said...

This is so exciting. What a special memory you guys will have.

Karen said...

Michelle, that's awesome! And how great that the kids were good. That's always nice. :)

Mommy to those Special Ks said...

How exciting!!! I love the title of the post, too! Very accurate! :)

Jen said...

Well Sarah is right you know...she does have the most beautiful eyes...the first time I found your blog I could not get over how pretty her eyes where.....how wonderful she met Sarah Palin......pretty awesome.

Kari (GrannySkywalker) said...

I'm a tad bit jealous of Sarah...she's gotten to meet Kayla. And I'm a tad bit jealous of Kayla...she DOES have THE most beautiful eyes. :) It's good that two such blessed people, Sarah and Kayla, have come together!

How exciting to meet one of the candidates. No one bothers coming to our part of the country. I understand WHY they don't come here (Texas is pretty heavily voting for McCain already), but it would be great to get to meet them in person. It's pretty obvious from my blog that I will be voting for McCain/Palin, but I would love the opportunity to meet any of the candidates. (Although I'd hate to be picked apart by the media if I made the mistake of asking a "harsh" question to Obama or Biden....)

Great pictures and I loved the video!!!
