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.
