Colten snuck a present under the tree for Jack.
He made him something special at school.
He thought he would like it.
"Don't worry Jack...it's just something I made...you don't have to make me anything"

Jared and Jack had off today...
Colten finished tests yesterday like his brothers,
but his teachers planned a breakfast party, and a day of bowling today...
so Coley went to school.

At home.
"What should I make for Colten?"
"I'm not sure son...just draw him a picture, he'll like that"
"No. That is not good enough. He made me something"

"What should I make for Colten"
(was on repeat all morning long)
Jared rolled out of bed around 11am.
"What should I make for Colten?"
he asked me for the umpteeth-thousandth time.
"Why don't you make him a bookmark...he reads all the time?"
Jared replied.

aww...Thank you Jared.Very serious bookmark making took place the rest of the day.
