Blog #78~Christmas Past

This week; a look at Christmas past with Nick and his older brother, Hank. Having a brother with Down syndrome and autism requires patience and understanding.  It’s not always easy with Nick yelling, dropping things, stimming and giving us all a run for our money.  I give Hank a lot of props for putting up with it all these years.  Here are some of their special times together at Christmas.

Christmas in Texas, no pants required 🙂 Christmas 1

I hope that you enjoyed a look back at Christmas past.  I treasure the many fond memories of my boys over the years.  May your Christmas be filled with joy, love and peace.
