Our Journey Raising Two Children with Special Needs

This blog chronicles our life raising two children, Nicholas 14, diagnosed with Prader-Willi Syndrome and Weston 17, diagnosed with Autism/Asperger's/ADHD. It's the ups, the downs, the joys, the sorrows and most importantly, the beauty of living a life less perfect, a life more meaningful.

Snowliage

For the first time that I can remember, the New England area has received significant snow before Halloween.



Usually, I would be ecstatic about such an historic event, but this year, I feel like I am still recovering from the long, cold, endless winter of last year.

Here in our area, we received about 4 inches of plowable snow.


This is certainly not a major snow event for this part of the country, but because most of the trees still have their colorful leaves still attached, there are a lot of limbs and branches down in our town. We lost our power from 11 pm until about 4 in the morning.




Our poor apple tree

There is, however, one person in our household who is very, very happy about the early snow.

Can you guess who it is?

That's right, it's Nicholas....who, of course, was able to enjoy the first "fire" of the season!
