'Snow' Busy

Ok, gotta get the obligatory 'corny' seasonally title in there, but it's just for fun and Isaac is ALL about fun. 

In fact we are so very blessed with the light-heartedness Isaac bestows upon our lives, because many of the issues concerning our little guy are very serious and there are not a lot of answers out there or any easy pathways, to the point it would be a struggle not to become discouraged, but Isaac brings so much infectious JOY, JOY, JOY - to the party -it's impossible not to be be upbeat and positive,...especially as we go into the Christmas season. 


How much does Isaac get about Christmas? We don't know, but we do know that Isaac knows that whoever rides IN the sleigh controls where the reindeer go,...so where else would Isaac chose to ride?


Deconstruction is still easier than construction. Why? 
We don't know,...just is, for now,...but that's OK,...Isaac can say,
"Merry Christmas!"


Visiting a regional mall to see the Christmas Decorations.
Scanty decorations, sigh, a little better than last year, but no cigar.
Thankfully Isaac doesn't care if the mall doesn't look like yester-year,
which was a WINTER WONDERLAND,
instead of looking like the day after New Year's Day
Mr. Macy and Mr, Gimble would be horrified!!!! :)
Anyway even if there was a Miracle on 24th Street and the mall 
was gilded like last century,
I don't think Isaac would have cared,
not when he discovered the ARCADE!!!


Snow-much-FUN!!!!!!


Great form for a five year old!!!!


And gee the balls were returning down a chute,....COOL!


See what I mean,...a couple of bored looking ornaments hanging from a majestic atrium,
and the holiday wreaths kinda scattered about would have looked tiny on our front door.
We want I.I. to learn how to say, "Merry Christmas to ALL!"
Not, "Bah humbug!"


Stopping to get gasoline, Isaac helped himself to the front seat,
intent on driving - now he knows how 
after all the practice in the arcade,
but safety first,
"Buckle-Up!!!"


More 'snow' business as we try to finish our house renovations,
downstairs is 98% complete,
upstairs, 
my new office space had been the location for a major coup,
as Isaac thinks all this 'bounty' is HIS,
oh dear, I knew I'd be sharing 'some' 
but as Isaac has fallen in love with this office/study/library,
I'll have to be content with my desk in the corner for my 'office'
and let Isaac enjoy HIS library,
which actually is going to work even better than I anticipated as a space for therapy,
but don't tell Isaac,
he thinks we're just playing


Thank you whoever donated this heavy-duty check embosser to the thrift store,
Isaac is in LOVE!!!
Hello, numbers you can manipulate and emboss on paper!!!
COOL!!!
Number-theory studies,...here we come!!!



Isaac has really enjoyed his first 'official' science project,
and shock-shock, he actually participated more that I would have ever dream 
when we put his project together,
granted Mama had to do the gluing (sensory-stuff) 
but Isaac gamely put everything where it was suppose to go,
and HE put the FROG/ISAAC poster letter exactly were he thought they should go,
it was 'snow' much fun!!!!


As people of faith, it is important to us for Isaac understand the 'true' meaning of Christmas.
We tell the stories, we sing the songs, we read the books, and have the naivety,
and KNOW it is all going into that sensitive little heart and soul,
because Isaac already knows how to say:
God made you special and He loves you VERY MUCH!!!


Naivety match-up?
To be perfectly honest it NEVER occurred to me to make a 'match' game
with naivety sets,
one glass, one traditional,
but Isaac's always three steps ahead of us,
as he matched each figurine 
with the book,
and each other,
to quote Isaac, "GREAT JOB!!!"


Special Christmas Party from the adaptive P.E.
Santa GOR-RIL-A
(think Clayton's articulation in Tarzan movie)


Did Isaac get the 'snowball' fight,...not exactly 
but as always Isaac makes his own fun,
and check out the ADORABLE,
mustache-christmas-tree shirts,
Mrs.B's husband made for the guy's in Mrs. B's class
for the field trip,
Too cute!!!


Daddy got to show-up for the field trip 
even though Daddy is 'snow' busy with work, he always makes time for I.I.
and I.I. always makes time for FUN.

Putting up our Christmas tree this weekend,
and as always 
it should be interesting,
as Isaac experiences the world in a different way,
and he makes sure YOU do too,
including the Christmas season

Until I post again,...may God bless and keep you!
