The perfect Christmas gift for anyone on your list...

Back in May, we told you about our trip to Chicago for Leanne and Josie's photo shoot.  Leanne and Josie were selected to be featured in the GiGi's Playhouse 2013 calendar.  For those that don't know, GiGi's Playhouse is an international organization that provides resources, support, specialized education, and awareness to individuals with Down syndrome and the community.
In October, we went back to Chicago to participate in the GiGi's Playhouse 2013 Calendar Launch and Red Carpet Event.  It was Leanne and Josie's first promotional appearance since becoming pin-up girls:
It's a shame Leanne is so averse to being in the limelight:

It's obvious all of the attention makes her extremely uncomfortable:
It's going to be awhile before she learns to embrace her new found celebrity status:
Meanwhile Josie has already let the fame go to her head.  Here she is asleep on the job at her first promotional appearance.  Yawn!  She's so over it.

This sequence of photos just made me laugh.  Here are Travis and Josie waiting for their turn to go up on stage:
When we returned home, Leanne got right to work autographing calendars.  She sat and signed her name day and night...
And now you will have the opportunity to own your very own GiGi's Playhouse 2013 calendar personally autographed by Aunt Leanne!  Josie and Leanne are among numerous chromosomally enhanced beauties featured in this calendar, which was shot by famed photographer Thomas Balsamo. 

For $20 (price includes shipping costs), you can have your very own autographed, 10 year anniversary edition of the GiGi's Playhouse calendar featuring Leanne and Josie.  All proceeds go directly to GiGi's Playhouse to support their mission to increase positive awareness of individuals with Down syndrome.

  1. Leanne looks GORGEOUS in her photo! And strange question, but is she ambidextrous? Just noticed her using both hands when signing autographs.

    1. I wondered if anyone would notice! Yes, yes she is! Although her handwriting is neater when she uses her left hand so we encourage her to do so ;-)

  2. Congrats - How awesome!:)

  3. You have some beautiful cover girls in your family.
