Twelve Days

As I mentioned in a recent blog entry “Carols,” one of Alex’s current favorite Christmas songs is “The Twelve Days of Christmas.” Since he likes numbered lists and that song, I have created a version especially for him, thinking of the things he’d really like for each of the dozen days.

Alex’s Twelve Days of Christmas

On the twelfth day of Christmas, my Alex found with glee

Twelve-month calendars,
Eleven almanacs,
Ten lists in notebooks,
Nine calculators,
Eight game shows to watch,
Sevens on slot machines,
Six Google searches,
NASCAR’s 5 car,
Four record temps,
Three precise clocks,
Two slip-on shoes,
And pi digits to infinity.

Merry Christmas to all, especially to those children with autism who make our lives more interesting with their unique takes on the world!

“So if you sinful people know how to give good gifts to your children, how much more will your heavenly Father give good gifts to those who ask Him.” Matthew 7:11

Over half of the stuff on that list would be on my son's as well!

Hi Big Daddy,
I've enjoyed reading your blog because our boys are eerily alike. :) Of course, your son would have elevators and Wilford Brimley on his list; day one could be, "...and videos of Wilford Brimley."
Happy Holidays to your family!
Take care,
