We had a big family get together this weekend.
Rented a hall, all the families get together.
The kids play games and do crafts
Santa comes and calls each child up to get a gift.
All of this is difficult for a child with sensory issues (and sometimes his Dad too!)
Daniel is known as the social butterfly, but it takes him a while to get use to
new situations. The loud noises, all the people kind of freak him out.
So I was very happy when cousin Caleb (again to the rescue) and sister Caitlin helped relax Daniel while doing the decorating of the cookie
Also for Victoria who quickly and expertly placed Daniel on Santa's lap for the 4.5 seconds for the photo op before the potential freak out (which never came thank goodness!)
Santa got Daniel an awesome gift (which if you have a SNK is a great gift which requires minimal large motor skills)
