LABOR DAY WEEKEND, IN MORE WAYS THAN ONE ...!

                             

Leave it to my sister, Karen, to take Labor Day Weekend literally.  She went into Labor on Saturday morning and by mid-afternoon my nephew, Jackson Martin Quintal was born.  Here is one of the first pictures of Jackson, courtesy of his proud father, my Brother-in-Law, Doug.  For many months now, throughout Karen's pregnancy, Doug has been whispering the following words of encouragement to Jackson:  "Hurry up and come out, Jackson, I've got yard work waiting for you!"  For his part, Jackson seemed responsive, kicking and moving at the sound of Doug's voice as if to say either "I love yard work and can't wait to see you" or "Feet, do your stuff ...!"  Now that Jackson is born, however, the truth can be revealed.  Doug's first words to Jackson were about the yardwork and, in response, Jackson grasped his father's fingers, looked deeply into his eyes and smiled as if to say "I love you."  Indeed, from now on, Labor Day Weekend will be a Labor of Love for the Gordons and Quintals ... even if Jackson ends up getting stuck with all the yardwork!

Marty, he's gorgeous.  I hope he and his mom and dad make a trip to 7th and Montana so we can see him in person.  You must be so proud.

Maybe uncle Marty can pitch in every now and then...when he's not at the Starbucks, that is :)  What a cutie, Jackson!!

Oh how I so remember that very first moment of holding my own little Peanut...There is nothing else in this world that compare to that moment. Well little Jackson made his debut on a very fitting day!! God bless to you, Jackson, and your entire family! Big Smiles....
