The next day Jack was telling Oma (my Mom) all about how he wanted the tree from Costco with the colored lights and just didn't understand why I didn't like colored lights. She told him that white lights were more in style and that is why I liked them better. He responded, with a great sence of relief "So then maybe some day colored lights will be back in style and then my Mom will like them and we can get them then." He saw that there was still a chance that someday he could have his colored lights!! So my Mom, who seems to help me solve a lot of things, came up with the idea to surprise Jack with a small Christmas tree from our basement. She put colored lights on it and put it in his room. He LOVED it!!! He turns it on every night and it has now become his new night light. Then a couple days later he brought up this whole situation with my Mom again and told her "Someday, when I am big, and my "Mom" (meaning to say "wife" :) love that!!) tells me to get white lights and I will look and look and look and when I can't find them, I will bring home colored lights." That's another way to get what you want, tell her you just can't find them!!!

On Sunday morning we met at my sister Becky's house and had another Christmas before Libby and Justin and Mom and Dad left for home. Here is Justin trying to teach Wade "scary face". It all started when Jack was little and Justin decided to teach Jack a new facial expression and they called it "scary face". Now when ever we see Justin or I am on the phone with Justin or Libby Jack calls out to tell them he is doing "scary face". I guess Justin is just getting an early start to teaching Wade these valuable things.
Wade got a new book but he was more interested in eating the book than having me read it to him!
Jack got this great Michigan sweatshirt from Aunt Janie!!! Hopefully next season is better for Michigan!!
Wade ended his first Christmas the same way Jack did 4 years ago, asleep on someones shoulder!! Wade is wearing his "My First Christmas" outfit Aunt Janie gave himand it was so comfy it put him to sleep! It was a great start to Christmas celebrations!!
Mama loves you Wadey-Wade!!
After all the presents were opened and most of the guests had left Wade made himself comfortable with all of Ella's new toys. He sat there for about 20 minutes just taking it all in. I think he thought he might be able to take a few home with him.
Wade enjoyed his first in the sink bath. He loved it! I think he ate most of the bubbles and enjoyed splashing his Mom!!
Here is a cute hair due that Jack and I always give Wade after his bath. Jack finds is very entertaining!!
We had another great trip to KY and it is never long enough. We had lots of celebrating with Ella's party and Libby turning 25 and it was so good to be with everyone. Sara, Libby and I enjoyed alittle shopping on Sunday afternoon and that night we had a great steak dinner to celebrate Lib's birthday. So good to see you Libby and Justin!! Thanks again Sara and Tommy for a great weekend!!
Justin and Wade
Here is the happy birthday girl!!
Love her Birthday hat!!
