CdLS Family Gathering...

On Saturday, we had the pleasure of attending a CdLS family gathering here in Nebraska. We had such a good time! It was hosted by Christy and Dave, whose daughter Baylee has CdLS. There were 5 families in attendance - Vinny was the youngest at age 15 months and Beth Ann was the oldest at age 20. In the middle is Joey, age 5, Baylee, age 13 and Katy, age 15. It was so nice to get together with other families that have children who have the same syndrome Joey does. I think we could have talked and laughed and compared notes all night! We had a delicious meal and yummy desserts. It feels like we are all old friends and hated to have our time together end. Hopefully we can get together again soon! I can't hardly wait for the CdLS National Conference which will be held in Dallas in June 2010. Here are a few pictures from our time together!

Beth Ann, Katy and Baylee - aren't they gorgeous! If you look close you can see Joey flipping the light switches in the background!


  1. Beautiful kids, one and all! But I have to say, that Vinny is a major cutie! No wonder everyone wanted to hold him!
    I'm so glad that you've found other CdLS families in your area. That has to be a huge thing for your family.
