Guess what? April is Autism Awareness month! As most of you know by now, I have two little boys with autism. They are all kinds of wonderful, but they have several delays and need therapies to help them along. We have been very lucky and have been able to get the therapies and other help that our boys need, but there are lots of families out there who need a little help. Michelle of 4MyBabies Scraps started a blog train to help raise funds to donate to the Son Rise Program, to help children with autism, and I am happy to participate in the blog train this year.
Here’s is my contribution, a set of 10 happy doodles! Just click the image to download.

Have a great week and thanks for stopping by!
Well, I had planned to take the summer off to enjoy with my family and ended up taking autumn off, too! We had a great time, though, and now the kids are back in school, Thanksgiving is over (Boohoo! It’s my favorite holiday of the year!), and Christmas is fast approaching. Have you finished your Christmas shopping yet? I’m about halfway done with mine.
This year my kids know about Christmas. Last year they were vaguely aware of it, but it wasn’t a big deal. This year it’s a big deal and they know about presents now, too! Speaking of presents, I made some printable gift tags. Just click the image to download.
Hope you’re having a great season!

I had a really, really wonderful surprise this week and am in an awesome mood! My husband has been on the road for five weeks straight and just got a stop off in Phoenix this week, so he got to drop by and visit with us for 8 hours. It wasn’t very long, but long enough that we all felt recharged and able to go a few more weeks before we see him again. It was hard to say goodbye again, but we were all just so happy to get to spend time together. I haven’t seen the boys that excited in a long time!
It’s been a long while since I’ve done Freebie Friday, so I thought I’d post one today It’s CU ok, too.
Thanks for stopping by! Have a wonderful weekend!
As some of you may know, I have twin boys. This is Luke.
He is loud and crazy and roll-around-in-the-dirt fun. He has more energy than 10 puppies and the strength of a gorilla. He LOVES anything by Disney/Pixar and is attached by the fingertips to my iPod Touch. His favorite food is white cheddar rice cakes (I know he didn’t get that from me! lol) and he has a frighteningly deep obsession with 20th Century Fox (the logo! the fanfare! the searchlights! oh my!).
This is my other son, Adam.
Adam is sweet and gentle and loves anything with wheels. He is very concerned with everyone’s feelings and is so empathic that he cries whenever anyone else is sad or upset. He LOVES the Wonder Pets and his favorite “character” is the Fly Boat. LOL
I just wanted to take a minute and show off my boys – both of whom are dealing with the challenges of autism, but are otherwise normal, healthy, lovely children. Autism is quite prevalent these days and most people know someone who is autistic or has an autistic child. Jodi and I made this kit to celebrate those people/kids/families. We’re giving it away FREE and we made the colors slightly more useable than the usual primary-colored autism kits so that you’ll be able to use it to scrap all kinds of things!
Just click the links below to download my part of the kit, then head over to Jodi’s blog to get her part.
Thank you super-duper-extra-much to Jodi’s creative team for the beautiful layouts!

I don’t know why, but I’ve had rainbows on the brain lately. Then this morning I came across this video and just completely fell in love with it!
That really, really made me homesick for Hawaii!
Anyway, it also made me think about doing a rainbow for St Patrick’s Day, so that’s what today’s freebie is. Hope you enjoy, just click to download.
Have a great weekend!
