My son was the FOX news (local station) last night. Take a look. Brookfield Zoo had an Autism Awareness Day yesterday that we attended. Freddie just loves being at the zoo. The weather was perfect, here are some pictures of our fun-filled day. As soon as we arrive we head to Freddie's favorite place in the zoo, The Living Coast, as you can see he's just getting ready to make a run for it I think that he would stay here the whole day if we let him. This is the only picture that came out clear. Couldn't use my... Continue reading

Our Spring Break did not go according to my plans. I planned a fun-filled week for us, signed my son up for a spring break camp in the morning, afternoons he’d still have therapy but I included lots of fun early evening activities such as the Children’s Museum, playdates, the mall, and lots to time outside with Finn. The Sunday before our spring break began my little guy woke up vomiting with a high temperature. Since he is seizure prone we kept him home from church and spent the day trying to get his temperature down. I was unsuccessful, we... Continue reading

My handsome little guy turned 4 last Wednesday, he woke up super early to open up a few of his gifts, and he giggled like crazy when I sang Happy Birthday. His big birthday gift was his service dog (Finn), I wrote about him in a previous post. Our parents came over this weekend to celebrate with gifts galore this Larry hat seems to be his favorite so far. He looked so stinking cute wearing his new hat all day. He was more interested in the Buzz Lightyear birthday candle than this caramel cake (more for me). Today though my... Continue reading

This week we added a new member to the Greenwood household. A service dog, named Finn. His job is to help/aide our precious little guy (our son has a diagnosis of autism and seizure disorder). Last year while at a Special Needs Expo there was an organization with service dogs, during her demonstration she talked about how these dogs can be used to keep our kids safe, she gave us the example of a child who wanders, is nonverbal with epilepsy. At the time I thought that her presentation was interesting and I filed the information in my head just... Continue reading

I'm glad hat you caught it quickly. Have you looked into dog boots?

We’ve been having a lot of snow/cold weather days when the weather is too bad to go outside. I’ve been spending lots of time knitting and watching Netflix “Miss Marple” series, I remember reading most of her books many years ago (high school) but I’ve forgotten most of them so watching these shows has inspired me to re-read Agatha Christie books. I recently finished “A Murder is Announced”, the PBS show based on the book was entertaining but as usual I enjoyed the book more. A Murder is Announced is set in a quiet English town where an advertisement is... Continue reading

Our Artic Blast has ended! Our normal schedule has returned, I did enjoy having the last two days off. We stayed in our pajamas, read books, watched movies, played games and baked cookies. I haven't baked Oatmeal Cookies in a while, Freddie normally loves these cookies but he was uninterested this time. Good thing I only baked half of the recipe and I froze the rest to save myself from eating them all in a day. The Toll House Cookie Bar was a special request from my husband who gave me the saddest look when he said, "I always ask... Continue reading

The snow is pretty when it first falls and as long as it's warm enough to go outside (bundled up of course)then I don't mind. But when it's too cold for the kids to be in school and too cold to play in the snow then I'm ready for spring. This is the second day in a row that school and all activities for my son have been cancelled and it's too cold for him to go outside and play in the snow (wind chill is -27F right now). I'm ready for spring and warmer temps, we want to play outside. But all is not lost, today is the perfect day to bake cookies, one of my favorite activities.

We are having an Artic Blast in the Midwest today. Right now it is -4(F) and the wind chill of -26(F). Everything has been cancelled, no school, therapy, or doctor appointments. Tomorrow's weather is predicted to be colder, it is unusual to have a day without appointments. I'm thinking that cookies will be made today. Yum-yum! Continue reading

My son has been climbing on everything lately. The kitchen cabinets, bookcases, pantry shelving, furniture, out of his crib, the list is endless. At school I got a note from his teacher that he is climbing very high and jumping as well. Our little guy has so much energy I'm really looking forward to putting him in a gymnastics class once he turns 4 in a few months. This recent surge in energy and curiosity of climbing has me questioning once again what is he thinking. While at the library a few days ago I picked up a book in... Continue reading

Nope, leave it up. It's cute and the red bow looks like a Valentine's decoration.

All the time. My sweet hubby doesn't like to look for anything so I get asked constantly. I even get asked where are the things that He puts away. LOL.

Your photos are beautiful. No one in my household cooperates for holiday card pictures, I actually thought about by-passing this year to avoid the headache but I'm gonna try one more time before I give up.

I'm good! I'd be so happy and excited I probably would have beat my MIL and texted my hubby first!

I talk to mine all the time, my cat meows back at me when I talk to him (it's cute). The dog doesn't pay any attention to me unless I have food in my hand.

My son is currently loving the book "Interrupting Chicken" by David Ezra Stein. It is a cute book and the first time that I read it to him I found myself laughing during the story. This book gets read at least ten times everyday in our house. He goes from one adult to another handing us the book to read. I've even gotten him to say, "Read Book" when he hands it to me. Score! The moment I hear those sweet words I'm ready to drop everything that I'm doing to read to my precious little guy. The phrase I'm... Continue reading
