Apple iPhone Hanukkah: A Festival of Apps


Technology is a good way to share your celebration in lights. shares how Google is using Chanukah symbols to honor this holiday.

This is the most 'uniquely different' way we found to celebrate Hanukkah with our 5 year old son, who enjoys smartphones, light-displays, music, and e-gadgets: 'Apple iPhone Hanukkah: A Festival of Apps'!   "Appsfire for IOS let's you light a (virtual) candle each night with iMenorah.  Kids play dreidel with Ain’t Bubbies Dreidel, where you can actually spin the dreidel by spinning your iPhone.  Potato latkes and sufganiya in Jewish Cooking. Take a spin at this game: Catch the Sufganiya.
Send a Hanukkah card with Happy Hanukkah or Someecards app."

Menorah, imenorah
'Noah's Ark Menorable' Porcelain Menorah by Gail Cohen from

Developer Matthew Parrott believes his iPhone app iMenorah is perfect "for the Jew far from home."
The app, which costs $2.99 (oy vey!) lets you virtually light eight candles with a digital shamash. A voice on the app sings blessings, including the Shehechiyanu, a prayer recited on special occasions.

Remember to consider the interests of individuals with special needs during your 8 days of  Chanukah Rededication.  Shalom

Happy VALUE Day! 'The Girl Who Spoke with Pictures' - Eileen & Kim Miller


Well, we are full swing into the holiday season!  
Hope everyone had a fulfilling Thanksgiving day.  We enjoyed food, fun, fellowship the creole cajunland style... laissez le bon temps roulez!

We are still celebrating 'Happy VALUE Day!'

'The Girl Who Spoke with Pictures; Autism through Art.' A book by Eileen Miller  with illustrations by Kim Miller

# ISBN-10: 1843108895

# ISBN-13: 978-1843108894

The Girl Who Spoke with Pictures
For many years Eileen Miller's daughter, Kim, was unable to verbalize her experiences and emotions, but she was able to communicate using a less conventional language: her art. The Girl who Spoke with Pictures tells the story of a young woman with autism, and how her en...lightening drawings enabled her to share her view of the world. Illustrated with drawings created by Kim between the ages of 3 and 17 years old, the book gives an insight into how Kim expressed her thoughts and feelings through pictures, revealing her capacity to learn and be understood by those around her. Reflecting on her daughter's artwork, the author explores the concept of art as a universal language that can transcend barriers and enhance the personal and educational experiences of those with autism. This book provides a window into one autistic girl's experience of life and will be essential reading for teachers, parents, and anyone with an interest in autism

"Flickering crystal heartbeat 
symbolizing the precious multi-facets 
of living on the Autism Spectrum" (KBJCosse')
El Autismo es una condición que afecta a 1 de cada 91 niños en Estados Unidos y Puerto Rico. Cada año, más de 600 niños son diagnosticados con Autismo o desórdenes relacionados al Espectro Autista en nuestra Isla. Estas cifras son alarmantes y continúan en ascenso. Dentro de diez años se vislumbra que la población autista aumentará a unos niveles casi epidémicos en el mundo. Y Puerto Rico no será la excepción.

'The Privilege of Parenting'




Cover of "Are We Done Yet?"son's fav: Are We Done Yet?
We have never and will never view raising a child as a hardship, inconvenience or right of adulthood.

We have never and will never think or refer to our 5 year old as 'a problematic', 'challenging', 'heart-breaking', 'oh, you poor thing' and other derogatory, self-deprecating terms.

Just because our son lives on the Autism Spectrum and is managing sensory processing/integration, as well as, dietary conditions, does not reflect the totality of his existence.

"Children are God's heritage and the fruit of the womb a reward. Psalms 127"

Have a great Sunday and enjoy Parenthood.

Love & God Bless,
Dadda & Moomie
