BUT, he ate it anyway.
Now Parker was happy, loved his hot chocolate and cookies and could not understand Jacks attitude, especially since Grammy let him buy whatever in the TOY SHOP! He thinks Jack needed an attitude adjustment. We wonder where he heard that? PARKER WAS THE BEST BIG BROTHER and TRIED EVERYTHING to make JACK HAPPY. Quite a task.
MY FAVORITE PICTURE FROM THE ENTIRE NIGHT. TWO LITTLE BUDDIES THAT LOVE EACH OTHER AND ARE THE GREATEST GIFTS that GOD EVER GAVE ME!
FINALLY, Jack begins to wind down (thank you Lord) and is thinking just maybe he might go to sleep.....just MAYBE!...
Finally ready for bed....BUT WHERE...He cannot decide, but knows that even though he no longer takes a bottle or a pacifier, he is for sure going to take one with Grammy and Pop! That is a FOR SURE. At this point he has already opened 7 Christmas presents, each hoping that the mood would improve. Now he has all his MUSICAL CHRISTMAS toys close by and ALL going at once. A cat, a reindeer, a barking dog and a chicken.....but he is not sure how he wants to arrange them.
He finally has them all arranged and off to sleep he goes for 10 hours! Friday and Saturday were much better days....He loved going to the movie, sat in Santa's lap and actually posed,lunched at Red Lobster and had dinner at TGI Fridays and acted PERFECT...and was sweet little, funny Jack the rest of the trip. Parker was a HUGE help and I rewarded him WELL.
Making memories with these boys are the most special times of our lives. They bring us a JOY that I did not know exist. Just wanted to let you know that I did not have PERFECT ones.
I can't wait to see Jack's eyes as he unwraps all his loot these next two days. He is at just the right age to be SO EXCITED.
Make a MEMORY this holiday season. I sure plan to. My new blog friends have made this year so special. AND I am going to get better at it....I promise. I will post my Christmas card letter tomorrow....Merry Christmas from our home to yours.
