The first week of December is a big week in the Ben Grimm Family. Margaret starts it off on December 2nd, Elliott celebrates today, December 5th and Ben ends the party tomorrow as he turns 38! And how did my baby get to 38???
Here is Margaret with her new American Girl Doll.
And she had a great overnight at Nana and Grandpa's where she was the star of the show.
And today is Benjamin Elliott Grimm's birthday.
Also at the party, Baylor came over to me and said, "Patty Cake" clear as day. He loves to play patty cake with Nana. We have not seen a lot of progress lately but God has really been working in my heart about our spectrum boy. God placed Baylor in our family and he is teaching me so much about unconditional love. He also teaches me about sacrifice as I see Ben and Katy, Margaret and Elliott give up many normal things to accommodate Baylor. Yesterday there were two Christmas trees in their home. A small one in the family room with colored lights and a bigger tree in the living room with clear lights. There were no ornaments on the trees and a guest asked Katy when she would be decorating the trees. Katy gently explained that Baylor likes to pull the ornaments off the tree so they just have lights. Katy is always explaining things to others and she does it so graciously. So keep those prayers going up...we need them.
Off to do some errands today, Mrs T I am taking your give away gift to the post office!! Then some more Christmas shopping!! I am closing in on the end of my Christmas list.
