Light It Up Blue for Autism

I have two boys. They're twins. They're five. They're awesome. And one of them is dangling just off of the Autism Spectrum - with a diagnosis of PDD-NOS.

But I also know far too many families who are affected by Autism.
*Note: I made these cookies last week... and then a new report came out with new numbers, even more startling, but I didn't have time to make new cookies. It's now actually 1 in 88 children and 1 in 54 boys! Shocking.

So, today, I Light It Up Blue for them, and for all of you who every day have to try to stay one step ahead of your amazing, challenging, frustratingly wonderful child/children who land somewhere on the Autism Spectrum.

Today is World Autism Awareness Day.
If you want more information about today's Light It Up Blue campaign, you can head to (It makes me a little teary looking at the pictures of all of the amazing places that support the cause.)
You can also visit for more information about signs of Autism and other helpful stuff.

*Cookie note: These cookies were made with my trial of egg-free cookie icing, which is why they're a little less than perfect.
