Christmas has begun

I'm tired. We decorated the house, made salt dough ornaments and Christmas cookies. I need another weekend to unwind.

Samuel has a hard time around holidays. Every kid gets excited. That's normal. But Samuel's little engine is reving up so high, and he just can't seem to shift into a lower gear. And we all suffer. I lost it so many times this weekend. When he gets into modes likes this, we just don't know what to do. It's hard to punish him when for the most part he can't control himself. I watched him in action from the kitchen while he was watching a movie with his sister. Everytime a commercial came on, he would do something to irritate her. I saw him jump full force on to her from his couch to hers, clap his hands over and over in her face, take her doll throw it across the room. The list could go on and on. When he's calm and not anxious, he can control most of these behaviors but lately, not so much.

As excited as I am about Christmas, days like yesterday and today make me dread it. He's got two more weeks of school to get through. And so do I.

Here are some pictures of the weekend. The cookies and ornaments are 100% kid decorated. The cookies are made with all natural coloring so that's why they look so pastel. Both kids thouroughly enjoyed the activities.
