Every other Friday we have a visit from our Occupational Therapist (OT). She has been with us for a few years now and we love her to pieces. She works primarily with Elisha (he has autism, ADHD, and sensory issues), but sometimes she works with the family as a whole.
This week our activities focused around decorating gingerbread cookies, making foam gingerbread men (and women), and making foam stick puppets. There was the usual anxiety and stress (compliments of Elisha), due to change in our usual routine, but we pushed through.
Have a look at the finished projects.
Decorating Gingerbread Cookies

He did a good job.
Moses and his cookie.
Malachi and his cookie.
Zion and his cookie (held by the OT).
Hosanna and her cookie (held by the OT). I love her pretty smile.
