MEET ACTION JACKSON ...!

My Nephew Jackson took Center Stage today at my sister's house in Plainville, Massachusetts, showing off his toys and entertaining the family for hours on end.  He especially likes anything with wheels or pages.  Ever since Jackson was born, my Brother-in-Law, Doug, has been preparing him to take on some of the yardwork.  It was therefore no surprise that one of Jackson's favorite passtimes is a game we call "Mow the Deck."   He takes his Toy Lawnmower and runs around the deck at my sister's house, mowing it as if it was a lawn.  I'm just glad he doesn't have a toy Weed Wacker.  His other favorite activities include reading (he turns the pages himself), music (he plays a mean Xylophone) and Baseball (his plastic baseball set doubles as a teething post).  Jackson has a toy for every occasion but I thought I'd surprise him -- and my sister -- with a special gift:  "Baby's First Drum Set."  To my amazement, however, he already had a set of Bongo Drums ...!

Your nephew is adorable. When Skye was little it seems most of her gifts were loud, bright electronic toys that at times failed to have an off switch. Now...I make sure everyone else gets the pleasure of the loudest of them all. (Hugs)Indigo'
