Happy Thanksgiving!

Thrilled to have my parents in town for Thanksgiving!  They have been amazing babysitters and chefs - spoiling us by cooking delicious meals and helping out with the kids.

Just a few of the things I'm thankful for...
  • Thankful for:  A week off from Daycare drop-offs and pick-ups since Grandma and Grandpa watched the little ones
  • Thankful for: Kiddos soft cheeks that are made for kisses
  • Thankful that: Brianne and Bryce have learned to give kisses - either blowing kisses or real smooches!
  • Thankful for: My job for being so understanding of my ever changing schedule and allowing me to get to all the doctor and therapy appointments and to pick up Brianne from school.  
  • Thankful for: The sweet sound of the kids laughter as they chase each other around the living room
  • Thankful that: Brianne is walking around like a little champ
  • Thankful for:  My wonderful husband who is an AMAZING dad
  • Thankful that:  I've been given the opportunity to learn that people with Down syndrome are amazing individuals.  
  • Thankful that: we've been introduced to an entire network of people that we wouldn't have known had it not been for that extra chromosome!
  • Thankful for:  The Down Syndrome Partnership of Tarrant County for being such a fantastic resource for us and other families in the area
  • Thankful that: Brianne is starting to say more and more words.  Her favorites are: Puppy, Bye-Bye, Brah-Er (Brother!), Nana (Banana), and Pees (Please). She's learning the names of her classmates and says Eee-A (Eva) and Emamama (Emma).
  • Thankful that:  Bryce is a snuggle bug.  He loves to sit in my lap and just cuddle - soaking that goodness up since I'm sure it won't last forever!
  • Thankful for:  Skype!  With all of our family living far away, being able to video chat with them makes the distance more tolerable!
  • Thankful for:  the delicious turkey dinner we enjoyed and the fridge overflowing with yummy leftovers
  • Thankful for:  The awesome friends we have here in Texas....and for e-mails and phones and Facebook for keeping in touch with our faraway friends.
  • Thankful for:  Long weekends!
Hope everyone had a wonderful Thanksgiving!  We sure did - and the weekend is still young!
