December is HERE!
We kicked off the weekend with christmas movies and pulled out the advent calendar! Rocco loved the tsum tsum one last year, so we got one of those ones again! E wanted to join in on the fun, little tribe <3
The thing I was MOST excited about this weekend…besides these unicorn slipper socks I will not take off. Link to them here –> unicorn slippers.
Was taking Rocco and E to see SANTA! Rocco was excited this year to see him,and we were excited to do the “Safe Santa” which is a event for kids with autism/special needs. I really am grateful they do this, as it makes the experience much better. They do it before the mall opens, call one family up at a time, and they understand. Just so grateful <3
Now, things were a little rough that morning. ROUTINE is one thing that is so critical for Rocco, and if you mess with his routine he can melt down. Well, as you guys know we always do Donut Sunday and he was expecting us to go there. When we told him Santa first and donuts after, he was not happy. I wished we could of done donuts before but we had to be at the mall at 8. Rocco doesn’t even get up until 7:30, and I had to wake him up a little before then so we could get him ready.
BUT eventually Rocco calmed down while we we there, and say next to Santa! He at first did not want anything to do with him! The first pic was with him and E, they were both wrecks! But we got him to calm down and they are so great to let us have our time. Rocco warmed up to him and sat, so we got a pic with just him and santa solo, too! He was still a little cautious but he left happy! He told santa what he wanted too!
And then we had donuts after!
We were so happy to have E see santa this year ( even though not a fan, haha ) because last year she couldn’t, due to us having to be extra safe with her not getting sick! Rocco is SO excited this year for christmas, it makes me more excited for it!
It was a good day! A good weekend! Before you know it, christmas will be here!
Happy Monday, friends!
