Owen and Ben's Journey Through Autism

Christmas 2010 ;)

Our best Christmas yet - no doubt. Owen has always had a hard time with Christmas, especially Christmas eve, we spend it at Ryans grandma's with roughly 20 or so people - too crowded for Owen.

Last year, Owen screamed the entire time, he was just horrible to bring out, he couldn't handle it. This year Owen was a whole new child - he was social, he was happy, and he was content without screaming. He played with his sister, he Aunt, he was so happy all evening.

Then, Santa came out ... Santa was daddy this year, and the kids had no idea. I think maybe Owen had a little bit of an idea it was his daddy, and he just laughed and laughed the whole time. The kids opened their gifts with minimal help, they were all in good spirits, and made me so proud to be their mother.

Now, I can only hope next yr they are just as amazing or more so, it was a great feeling hearing all our families tell us how great our children are, and spoil them with love and a mountain of toys :)

I hope you all had a wonderful Christmas as well.
