Where, oh where has my blog time gone?

First - totally taken up by this cutest boy and his parents! We had a great 10 days!! The many faces of our boy just dazzled this Gramma daily
His vocabulary – totally amped up from 4 months ago, and increased while he was here for sure.
He and his "Bampa" created a stronger bond. One Sunday at church, as Russell was on the stand taking care of High Council duties, Jackson stood up on the chair, and the congregation heard a not so quiet "Bam-pa, BAM-PA!" Many chuckles surfaced from those near and far in the congregation.
He and his fav’s , Skyler and Randi had lots of bonding moments. Randi spent the night a few times, and when Jackson woke up to find Randi on the couch we heard "Randi, Up, Randi, UP!" He wanted her to get up and play, but usually she coaxed him to cuddle up with her for a few…
the many faces of our boy that cracked us up....
Jackson the "hairdresser", the fudgesicle monster, Practicing to be a big brother! Good Job little man!
Jackson the PhotographerLover of special ladies....my sisters Tara and Jana
His Gramma Lucy ShirleyWe had a wonderful family baby shower for Heidi and all that arriving soon in Pink!!
The time went waaayy too fast, and we are missing them so much already.
Secondly... My calling. In December I was called to be the Stake Primary President. We have been in a whirl of presenting Sharing Time at Ward Conferences, Learning the ropes, Orienting new Presidencies...tricky being a new presidency ourselves...
The last two weeks, attending Blue and Gold banquets and seeing the creativity and love of the wards for their boys and the scouting program.
So much more to catch to you all up on...but for now...enjoy those pictures of my most fabulous little boy and our family, and I shall see you again soon in blogland!! Love you all for reading..;)

Oh, lucky you. What a sweet angel boy. He looks like the type of kid you just want to pick up and squeeze.

I was wondering what happened to you! Sounds like you have been busy, and I can't blame you for having the right priorities! That little guy is so CUTE!!!

I have missed you but I surely understand how you have had better things to do than blogging.

Your Jackson is soooooo adorable. No wonder you are all so taken with him. He really is a little doll.

It was good to see you in the temple last night. That is the very best place to meet friends.

Much love, Lura
