the boy turns 10

Mason was dramatic, though considerate, from the beginning. I had contractions through most of Monday Night Football on September 28, 1998 but did not need to get myself to the hospital until 5:00 the next morning. And though he was born via emergency C-section, two weeks early at only 4 pounds, this kid has used that extra time wisely and made up for his size with vigor.


He couldn't wait to share a birthday with
Jerry Lee Lewis, Madeline Kahn, & Gene Autry

Sometimes a goofball





Often lost in thought



Mostly a goofball



Pyros bonding



A loving moment



Rockin' the pajamas & boots look



Happy birthday to you, my beautiful boy.

Ten is such a good solid age. Maybe it's the double digits. I remember feeling so grown up then! Enjoy this time. It goes by quickly!

Happy 10th birthday to your beautiful, rockin' boy! My boy was considerate too, that way. His dad had tix to the big rivalry A&M / UT game. If he came on his due date, dad would have missed the game. He came two days after. Just hours after a mexican hot sauce binge.

Aw, Happy Birthday, Mason! What a cool kid. Dude, I never look that awesome rockin' out in pj's and boots! (My boy is 9 1/3, and this mama ain't ready for the big 1-0!)

That kid is a goofball...

I love looking back at him when he was sooooo tiny (now that it is not scary).

Happy Birthday to both of you.

Why do I think goofball may run in the family?!

Happy Birthday, Mason! The pictures are great...my 10-year-old was also early and by c-section. I always wanted a little girl, but...after 2 boys and the fun that they are...nah..I'm okay with it...I'm having a good time with the boys!! (I just borrow girls if I need a pink-fix!!)
