Sleepy face

This is the look of someone who just woke up from a great nap!

Yes...that is his hand print across his face and the binky you can see outlined around his mouth.

Halloween 2009

So this was little Masons first halloween. After 3 outfit choices/purchases we (Robyn) decided on making Mase a monkey. Not the most original choice...but he was darn cute. The day was full, we stopped by grandma Sheri's house briefly to take some pics of everyone in their costumes. After that we went to Grandma Bev's house for pizza and to celebrate Allison's bday. (Happy BDay sis.) Mason went Trick-or-Treating with Audrey and Sophie. They had a good idea of what was going on, Mason was just happy to be out and about for the night. He was a trooper and kept his outfit on the entire night. Except for when one of his shoes fell off and dad had to run back to the other side of the neighborhood in the dark to look for a darn brown shoe...All in all it was a fun night.

My wife the nurse

So I get a call from Robyn yesterday mentioning that there was something wrong with Cassie. She spoke how there was all sorts of blood everywhere. Every step she took, more blood. She put her in the garage, I came home there were bloody paw prints everywhere. Well when I came home, this is what I found. Robyn wrapped her foot and placed it in a sock. Upon further review, our poor little dog had played so hard she somehow ripped off one of her nails...ouch. She is still limping around. But I must say I am impressed with Robyn and her amazing first aid skills...however she did use one of my socks...not cool.

Mikey and Sarah are a cute young couple. But they are so much in love and I know that they will do very well together. Welcome to the fam Sarah! Here are a couple pics...

Blessing Day

Sunday we blessed not so little Mason. It was a great day. Mason has brought such a new light into our lives. We have been blessed with a beautiful and well behaved (as much as a 3mth old can be behaved) little baby boy. He is starting to laugh now and is becoming more and more fun everyday.

We have never posted pics of Mase's here is a video.

A Day at the Races

A couple weeks ago we went out to the Larry H Miller Raceways to watch the AMA Superbike. It was a great afternoon. Here are a couple pics and a video or two. Oh by the way....Mike Jordan was there with us...well, walked past us, shook my hand. That is just as cool....right?

Happy 5 year Hun.

Well, it has been 5 yrs. 5 yrs like a roller coaster. It has been full of it's up's and down's. Full of twists and turns, has moved fast and slow and I have thrown her through a loop or two. There have been times where I have thrown a wrench on the track but we have never been derailed. Robyn has been such a great wife and there are many many reasons I still love her.

Mothers Day

I would like to take a quick moment and express to those in our blogosphere how lucky I am to have the women I have in my life.

My Sister and Sisters in Law. Allison is the mother to two beautiful little girls. Keri, mother to a cute inquisitive little girl. Lisa, mother to a bright beautiful girl and a fun eager handsome son. (And cute little lizzy) And Monica, mother to funny Samantha and lovable Ian. All are great Moms. We are lucky enough to garner advice from them and learn tricks to being good parents.

My Mother. I am blessed with a wonderful mother. She is always there for me when I need to vent or seek advice. One thing that I never doubted from her has been her love for me. Thank you Mom. I know I have not been the easiest of children but you have been the best of Mom's thank you, from the bottom of my heart. I am in debt to you for all that you have given me.

My Mother-in-Law. I am lucky to have a great one. She brought me into her family like one of her own. I love her very much and feel privileged to have her as a part of my family. I

My Wife. This is my wife's first mothers day. I do not know of anyone more deserving than Robyn was to become a mother. She has always been so wonderful with children and she is amazing with our own. Little Mason may never know how lucky he was to be born into this family and be blessed to have a mother like Robyn. . Going through what Robyn had to go through takes a lot of love and hope. There were many times our hearts weer broken, yet Robyn continued. When we had the chance, it was a one-in-a-million shot, it worked and we were blessed with a beautiful baby boy. I am so lucky. Robyn is a one-in-a-million mother and I am lucky to be with her. I am eager to see how many ways she will touch my life by becoming the mother she is capable of being. Thank you Robyn for being a great mother to Mason and Myself, thanks for making me smile and being my wife.
Thanks Robyn, I love you!

How has it been.

So the time has been cruising along. It seems like we have had him in our lives forever. Yet it is hard to believe it has been almost 6 weeks. Robyn has been great and I am pretty sure she is in absolute love with this little guy. I have learned a lot of new things lately. The one thing that has been in the front of my mind lately however is how much having something so small can take up such a large space in our lives. He has been gaining weight, starting to smile and is eating more and more everyday. He is very much loved. And of course thank all those who have helped.

Mason's first easter. He was swimming in his outfit.

Hi guys!

Hi. My name is Mason Tee Cassell. Well, I came out weighing a smooth 8.8lbs and 21 inches long. My official bday is March 8th 2009. I am pretty darn healthy, and damn cute. This "Mom" person is a trooper. She is one strong woman. Now that I am in this world, I have been surrounded by the "Daddy" fellow and "Mommy" quite a bit. I am starting to love them very much. They keep telling me that too, and kissing me and holding me...It's ok, I am secure enough to admit it...I enjoy the attention. I am just trying to figure out what to do next!!

-----Robyn is doing well and is in recovery. Robyn did a great job. She had quite the marathon labor. After almost 30 hours Robyn finally had to have a C-Section. This kid is so beautiful and we are soo in love with him. He took our hearts from the start. Robyn did such a wonderful job and I love her sooo much for what she had to go through. She is strong willed and has so much love for this baby. She will be an awesome mom. Also...Thanks sooooooo much for everyones help, support, calls, texts and gifts. We are truly blessed to have such a great network of friends and family. (More pics coming soon.)
