5/365 - Very Merry UN Birthday!

As most of you know that visit my blog, Ashton has Autism. He still doesn't understand how to celebrate different holidays and birthdays - These times are even very stressful and come with a lot of change and over stimulation. So I like to "practice" with him during the year with just us, so that when the time comes at least he's familiar with what's going on and that part of the celebration can be more predictable to him. Anyway this is my 365 for the day! Our very merry UN birthday :)

Also I want to add that I was chosen to be a Lightroom tester for Maggie Fortson - her actions are beautiful! I used the Polaroid on these with VERY little tweaking! Here is a link to her Flickr page.

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!

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! :)
