Christmas Cheer

As an autism mom, I'm grateful for whoever it was that left us a little Christmas cheer on our porch on Christmas Eve!  It was such a cute and happy surprise.  It cheered both Kevin and I up, as we opened the origami money ornaments and opened the slips of paper to read the fun jokes, spiritual quotes and scriptures.  This was such a great idea.  I hope someday I can copy it and spread the Christmas cheer to another family that needs some holiday brightness.

Autism Proof Ornaments 2015

If you saw my previous posts, you know I've always struggled to make our Christmas decor functional.  This year I decided to make more of these ornaments.  (Tutorial here.)
Merry Christmas everyone!

As an autism mom, I'm grateful for the Paracord bracelet kit I got for Christmas. This afternoon I was really antsy and decided to try and make a bracelet.  I found a very good tutorial here:
I was pretty proud of my final result.

However, as you can see in the video above, the person who is the most grateful for the paracord is Jason.  He loves playing with any long string that can make twirly designs in the air.  :)  If you need to keep Jason occupied for any length of time.  Such a cutie!
