Yesterday, Lucas & Axel each received a Hobby Lobby Gift Card from Grandma & Grandpa J (Thank You!). Lucas is very familiar with gift cards after Christmas and seized the opportunity to help out his little brother. HA!
I heard him talking to Axel about what he was going to get at Hobby Lobby...a science kit, stickers, play doh kit, etc. Then he asks Axel (about 5 times), "Axel, what do you want to buy at Hobby Lobby?" Of course, Axel had no comment...just a few smiles and giggles at the whole idea of Lucas talking to him so intently.
Without missing a beat, Lucas turns to me and said, "Mommy, Axel won't answer my questions so I'm going to just have to pick out something for him at Hobby Lobby myself!"
That's my boy!!! I'm sure there was no selfish motives behind the scenes...strictly loving big brother-isms. :)
