Gifts : Mothers Reflect on How Children with Down Syndrome Enrich Their Lives

The Gifts Outreach program provides complimentary copies of Gifts to organizations which serve parents facing a new diagnosis of Down syndrome for their child, either prenatally or postnatally. We believe that the stories in the book provide a vital companionship and support for such parents.

I love this time of year!


We went to Breakfast with Santa that the area Tri Kappa put on and wonderful Kim bought the Sylvan Woods kids tickets. Nash is getting into the Holiday spirit, and had fun at the craft table and with Santa.

Having fun decorating, sifting through tubs of stuff from our move this summer, trying to find all my special Christmas bling, and then, buying more to decorate our new house....

Nash telling Santa he wants the CARS movie for Christmas, and not much else...knowing he is getting Seger the golden retriever puppy for Christmas (Who we already have been told can NOT sleep with Rudy2 and Lukie-the two black lab stuffed animals in his bed. Must be a territorial thing.)

Spending time shopping.........and relaxing.........what a concept, on the computer.

Tis the season!

What a darling picture of Nash with Santa! We had our DS Christmas party last night and Brady was totally awed by Santa, ran right up to him, climbed in his lap and totally loved him!

Nash is such a cutie - I hope he gets everything his little heart desires for Christmas :) Of course, getting a puppy is one of the bestest things of all....

Nash was scared of SC when he was pre-walking, before 2 yrs old. But now, you would think that they were related! And what a handy discipline tool Santa Clause has become in the 5th year! "Well, you have to have good behavior before Santa brings presents"...."I am good"...."Well, keep that good behavior or we will have to call SC"......"Telephone Santa?".....yep...

then later, when the inevitable poor choices occur...

"I am going to call Santa to tell him of your bad behavior and poor choices"....." Oh....No"..."Hello, Santa? Nash made some poor choices today, and did not have good behavior on the bus. I will leave it up to you whether to leave toys on Christmas. "

Oh the things you said you would never do before you actually have a child....

What an great picture of Nash and Santa!...and I'm all about that discipline factor too as Jamie is much more likely to listen to Santa than mom ;)
