Happy Valentine's Day!

Happy Valentine's Day! We are spending the day at home today digging ourselves out from the snowstorm yesterday. We did get about 6 inches ~ enough to make it a little tricky to get around. Unfortunately Joey seems like he is getting yet another sinus infection so will probably have to make a call to the doctor on Monday. I wanted to share a picture of the candy bar wrappers we made for Valentine's Day and passed out to Joey's teachers and therapists. Everybody loved them! I want to send out a big thank you to Sandi for helping me with this project. You can visit her over at Life with Jessica. I also want to share a video of the song Count Me In from Sesame Street. It's about how different and special each child is and shows typical kids and special needs kids together. The general consensus of our CdLS online support group is that there is a little boy with CdLS in this video. You can find him at 1:54 when you watch the video. Thanks to Heidi over at God's Grace in Practice for finding this and sharing it with us. Enjoy!


  1. LOVE the candybar wrappers!! what a great idea!

    and mike and i watched that video this morning. what a cutie and so nice to see one of our 'little guys' on sesame street!

    stay warm and cozy and have a wonderful evening!

  2. How adorable is that candy bar wrapper? Where did you get that idea?

    Justine :o )

  3. I love the video. It shows how far we've come. When we were little nothing like this would have been approached. We have to remember how far we have to go and you are a champion of that cause.

  4. I love that video too! Thanks for posting it on your blog. I missed an opportunity a couple months ago to tell a lady that we don't need sympathy, what we need is acceptance and inclusion, which is what I think the video is about.

    I LOVE the candy wrapper! I really need to do that sometime. Maybe for Blue's 1st birthday which is coming up!!!

  5. What a great idea. The candy wrappers look great. I watched the video and I think you are right about the little boy. Hope Joey feels better soon. Sinus infections are not fun.

  6. So cool!! That's a great video!! And you know how much I love the candy bar! Joey worked hard for me today!! We got along just fine! :)
