Ashton and those buses!

Ashton has a love (or obsession) for buses. He's really likes ALL kinds of buses, but school buses fascinate him - to the point that when we are looking at one he is completely and totally unaware of ANYTHING or ANYONE around him! He can make all the sounds a school bus makes to the "T". This has been his thing since he was 1 1/2 - he used to sleep with a BIG wheels on the bus, bus! I've started a bus series for him. Hopefully one day he'll thank me for this (of course when he can, verbally)!


Here is one from today! He pointed to this picture out all of them, so this is the one I edit and post :)

And the one I chose to edit and post :)

I heart rainy days!

I love them, since they are so far and few in between! I haven't seen rain like this in a loooong time! The wind was insane! I really looked like hurricane weather. Anyway, we enjoyed the day sitting by the window and watching the storm. We even had some hot coco - boy it was COLD! More is expected Friday, but I'm sure not near as great this storm was!

Stuff my day was full of...

Driving! I did a lot of that today. This was in my rear view mirror and yes, I was parked! We were waiting for Amelia to get out of school.

Full of Ashton! It was 1/2 day today! Gotta love Cali's weekly half days. I don't ever remember having them as kids! Sheesh.

Then we painted x-mas ornaments. It was fun and kept them occupied for a while! Are you surprised Ashton painted his all RED?

Lastly to end the day, I took the kids to a light display. There is a family that has 2 children with Autism that display this every year. Please look at their website. It's really an AMAZING story!

Have a great night everyone!

Sneak peak ....

So, today I post a sneak peak of Amelia's dress for x-mas. I still need to go to Michaels and get the ribbon for her hair and I'm still deciding if I'm going to have her wear footless tights or not! Decisions, decisions! Anyway, my lame daily photo for today! :)

In the pantry I did find ...

A little boy hiding 3 shelves up! Silly kid. We got home from school today and I was a bit flustered .. I had about 3 minutes before Ashton's ABA therapist was about to arrive. Rushing around, picking things up, and lastly ... getting the kids an after school snack. I had opened the food pantry and much to my surprise I found my little guy all curled up on the 3rd shelf! Ha ha. He must have had a long day at school to be hiding in the pantry away from us all. He looked so comfy in there! I almost felt bad making him come out ... it took almost 15 minutes, hee hee!

I hope that made you smile as big as it made me when I opened my pantry door! :)

Oh yeah, yum!

So the other day I was browsing through some photo and food blogs. I'm always looking for something new and different to make my family for dinner.

I love Brussel Spouts and I found this recipe CLICK HERE

OMG! THESE. WERE. TO. DIE. FOR! I'll never make my typical lemon, olive oil, butter, and salted Brussel Sprouts again! Ok, maybe I will! Just not as often. :)

These were so easy to make and a dish that will not last very long at the table .. trust me :)

See how delish they look!

Then just a snap of my daughter from today that made me smile!

She's "Homeschooling" her stuffed animals! Ha Ha! How adorable!

The little things!

I love that a slice of pumpkin pie topped with whipped cream can make her this happy!
