Jack's Thoughts

Jack is a sweet funny kid.  He comes up with really cute ideas and thoughts all the time.  Here are a few recently.

He asked me the other day if he could write his own Christmas list this year.  I told him he could and he said "you better watch out... I'm putting a dog on it!"  He had a huge smile on his face.  Freddy T. said Jack must have forgotten who Santa Clause really is :)

A few evenings ago I took the kids to Gallery Church to be there when the group for City Uprising came in.  After we left church and were headed home we were waiting to cross the street and the bus pulled up to the stop.  As soon as we got the walking signal Jack tore off across the street and ran to the bus and held the door open so we would not miss it.  I wasn't too far behind running, pushing the stroller with Lillie and Elliott in it.  Once we got seated I looked at Jack and said "Jack, thanks for running and holding the bus for us."  He smiled and said "don't thank me, thank my shoes!"  So funny!  He is convinced his shoes are the fastest ones out there.  He'll only wear other shoes on days he thinks he doesn't have to run, which is rare.

Last night I said "Jack, I still need you to help us think of a name for your baby brother."  He said, "You can come up with the first name, I'll try to think of a middle name, and his last name is easy, it's Wyatt, so we don't have to think about that one."  A few minutes later he said, "I figured it out, Your name is Susan Beth and Lillie is Lillie Beth.  I'm Jack Thomas and daddy is Freddy Thomas, Elliott is Elliott David and he doesn't have anyone to share his middle name with, so the babies middle name needs to be David, that way we all have a partner."

I think Jack is a pretty smart cookie to come up with his partner idea for the new baby's name!

We are excited about adding two new baby boys to the family at the same time.

Leave it to Jack to have a solution for every thing. He is so precious. I can see his eyes and the smile on his face when he spoke those words. Love to all of you, Great Gran

So sweet and thoughtful that Jack wants Elliott to be able to share his name with the baby! He is a funny little boy! Love, Mom

I love all the Jack comments; he is always thinking ahead! We better not let his Uncle Sam know he would like a dog!

So cute!!! I love the idea of the baby having a partner, but I'm still gonna say I like Simon as a first name. I was saying it the other day with all of your other kids' names and I think it sounds great!! ;) I've really been wishing we could hang out and that our kids could play...sometimes it's such a bummer to live apart from friends! Love you guys!
