Special Halloween

This was posted on face book by Equine Therapeutic Learning Center where Claire horse back rides and I love it!!

In a few days, a lot of creatures will visit your door. Be open minded. The child that is grabbing more than one piece of candy may struggle with fine motor skills. The child who takes forever to pick out one piece of candy might have sensory issues. The child who does not say "trick or treat" or "thank you" may be painfully shy, non-verbal or selectively mute. If you cannot understand their words
, they may struggle with developmental speech. The child who looks disappointed when they see your bowl may have a life threatening food allergy. The child who isn't wearing a costume at all may be autistic.

Be patient. Be kind. Smile. Pretend you understand their struggle. It's everyone's Halloween. Put your judgments aside and make every child that comes to your door feel special this year.
Happy Halloween, everyone! 

And Pumpkin Carving 


Not bad for a girl with sensory issues! 
She did so much better this year sticking her hand in and pulling the guts out, she is growing up. 

This year Claire wanted a "happy face" with a "little nose", "happy eyes" and "two teeth." 

Makenna ordered "scary teeth", "nose like mine", "Feet on the side", "big eyes" and "eye brows."

I love this pirate pumpkin head our friend Jodeana got us a few years ago.
It's the perfect thing to keep a toddler busy while everyone is carving. 

Putting in the "scary teeth"

Missed a spot Dad

 Mine is an owl, hoooo

Looking good Leitz family
