The Purpose of this Blog

The goal of this blog is to provide education and bring about higher awareness about Down syndrome. It is to share that life with Down syndrome (DS) is not scary, horrible, or to be feared.

My experience comes from raising my daughter, Nebraska Larae (Braska), born November 2006 with Down syndrome.
The posts on this blog are related in some way to life with DS or disability, and they are reposted here from my other family blogs. There are links to those blogs in the margin on the right side of this blog if you would like to visit them directly.

Thank you for coming by.

3 birthdays for 3! #3

Yesterday was Thanksgiving Day.  I know that because it’s Mommy’s favorite day, so she always talks about it coming right before we get ready for Christmas. 

But yesterday was also my birthday… again!!! Remember I told you I had 3 birthdays for turning 3?? This was #3, and it was with all my family from Mommy’s side.  We all went to Auntie Skye and Uncle Jody’s house for our big turkey dinner, and we also got to have a little bit of birthday party too.

Here’s everyone who was there…
Uncle Patrick and Auntie Rachel (She’s Mommy’s sister.)

Uncle Jody (Mommy’s brother) and Auntie Skye

Papa, Grammy, Auntie Julia, Uncle Ryan, and Auntie Joy. (Mommy’s mommy and daddy and other sisters and brother)

And Daddy and Mommy were there too.  Guess you probably figured that out already… KiKi was napping, so she didn’t get in the picture with us.

Everyone helped me blow out my candle since I’m not so strong to do it by myself.

Then I opened a present from Grammy and Papa.  First I read the card on top. 

Then I opened the present. Daddy helped, but I pulled the paper some.

It was a book about kids in the Bible.  I love Bible stories!

And there were two puzzles in there.  One of them had animals on it.  This one used to be Mommy’s. She was so surprised to see it she kept saying, “Wow!” 

Here’s the back of the puzzle… it has Mommy’s name on it and the guy who gave it to her when she had a birthday to turn 1.
And Uncle Jody and Auntie Skye gave me this table so I can sit and read books and color.  I tried it out as soon as I got home. My chair from Miss Karen fits just right!

Thank you to everyone who made all 3 birthdays so much fun!  I can’t wait til next year!  I’ll get 4 birthdays for 4!  Oh, wait… Mommy says it doesn’t always work that way.  I guess I’ll wait and see.

Hope everyone had a fun Thanksgiving!
