To the North Pole!

First of all let me say thank you to all who lifted up prayers for our trip to the North Pole! The weather was perfect, Baylor was feeling well and we all had a wonderful time. For a child on the autistic spectrum an event like The North Pole Express can be overwhelming but Baylor was a trooper. His therapist told Katy that Baylor is a sensory seeker. He enjoys sights and sounds. Transisiton times are the hardest for our boy so Nana had little bags of skittles in her purse that we handed out as we got settled on the train. Katy brought the ipad and between all of our distractions, the evening went smoothly. And of course, I think a big covering of prayer made all the difference as well.

Waiting on the train...the sun was setting so pardon the shadows on the photograph. You can tell that it was nice and warm...long sleeve shirts were all that was needed last night!

The Brothers Grimm enjoyed the train tracks.

Margaret found an elf!! We had several compliments on our shirts. Thanks to niece, Jessica Grimm, for doing such a great job with our train wear!

This big boy will be one on December 5th!!

Elliott clapping to Jingle Bells.

Baylor enjoyed the train ride...he loved all the Christmas lights on the inside of the train car.

With Santa and Mrs Claus!

Ben and his boys.

Nana and Margaret enjoying their cookies.

Grandpa liked his chocolate milk.

The best part of the whole trip was making memories with our grands.
