A retired postman called Mike and wanted to come meet Wade. He had retired before Mike started at the post office but like most small towns they knew each other and had heard we adopted. His wife and him stopped by on Saturday morning and gave him a book, a little truck and some pj's. But as we visited they told us a story of how the local hardware store owner showed the mailman a lineup of new tricycles one day when he was in the store. He said "which one do you like best"? He selected one and the man got it off the shelf and said "here I heard you adopted a boy, and I want him to have it". The mailman's son is now 43 and he had told his wife then he would do the same for another adopted boy someday. Wade got to be that boy. And yes we can't wait to do it for another!!!

We had our company party and a church covered dish and the ski club party all this week.
The international Krispy Kreme stores have more freedom when it come to customizing doughnuts. As a part of our all team meeting they made these Santa's for each employee. Wade thinks Mommy has the best job ever!

Next we stopped at Mrs Hanes cookie factory and he didn't mind Mrs Clause handing him a cookie.
He has left the tree alone pretty well but likes to point out the truck and bike ornaments. This boy likes wheels.
Mom gave me a resin nativity set years ago so we just set out the main players this year. He likes to put all the animals inside the stable and will tell the baby night night each evening.

Wade got to spend four days with his cousins as we all visited Grandaddy and Teenie for Thanksgiving. He had a ball trying to keep up with all the big kids. Even the nine hour car ride was made easier on him since there was a boy on each side with a game or movie always in hand. It doesn't seem like very long ago that Marshall (now almost 17) was learning to swing on this tire swing.
