Mas face, Maseroni, Maser

Happy Birthday Mas! Mason turned ten today. I can't believe it. I thought he turned ten months ago. He seems so grown up. I think that is a second child trait. Anywho, here are some of my favorite things about Mason.

Mason has always been curious about how things are made and how things work. When Mason was three he came to me very excited because he figured out how Cheetos were made. He proudly announced to me that " first, you take some crunch." Sorry, I don't remember the rest of the steps because I started laughing too hard about the "crunch". It was so dang cute. Maybe just to me, but, oh well. Over the years that curiosity has turned to countless piles of deconstructed appliances and who knows what else hidden under his bed.

Mason is hilarious and constantly keeps our family laughing. I love that Boston thinks his little brother is the funniest person on the planet.

Mason is very eager to do his own school work and get it done before it is actually due. I really appreciate that one.

Mason really wants to learn how to sew. You should have seen his eyebrows popping when I got a sewing machine for Mother's Day.

Mason loves to be outside. Skating, playing team sports, camping, biking, building, whatever, he just wants to be out and doing something.

Mason loves to play guitar. He is playing Another Brick In The Wall with some friends for their school talent show. They have named their band The Pink Yetis, or something like that.

Mason picks fabulous friends.

Mason loves hugs and is very affectionate. This one has taken some time for me to get used to. I'm not a huggy gal.

Mason loves hanging out with all his family. ( ok, except maybe Sid, but I'm sure they will grow on each other someday)

Mason has the best facial expressions ever. I think he is super handsome but, boy can he make himself look goofy!

Happy Birthday Bubba! I love your big fat guts!

Happy Birthday, Mason!

I loved all the pictures, especially the baseball one!

I think the band's name is awesome! And I love that Pink Floyd song they are playing for the talent show.

He sounds like one awesome kid! Maybe we can arrange a marriage:)

I hope Mason reads this comment...

You are one special guy. I love you more than you will ever know. You are so special and a vital piece of our family. Here are some things I love about you…
You don’t like to go outside barefoot (the only kid in our family that shares that trait with me!)
You are very intelligent.
You are curious.
You like things that are different – Mom is sure glad that you’ll eat some of the food she makes!
You are not afraid to try things.
You are creative.
You like to work with your hands (even though you have lost a lot of my tools).
You are the only kid I know that could have taken apart (completely apart!) your bike at age 4.
You are stubborn – you know what you want and you’ll figure it out one way or the other to get it done.
You like to go snowboarding with Dad.
You are a good kid at school.
You love roller coasters.
I could go on and on… I love you buddy!
Love, Dad.

oh dang it I wish I remember what day it is sometimes. I totally meant to call Mas Face. I will have to call him today. I love Mason. I love all those traits about him that both you and Chris listed. He is an awesome kid and will continue to be awesome for the rest of his life.

Happy birthday, Mason! I loved being 10 years old. I remember it as such a fun age.

Such a great tribute post. I really don't know him that well but he sounds so cool. He has cool parents so it's not surprising but I like that he really is such an individual at his age, but such a good kid.

I love that he's teaching you how to be a cuddlier mom. Very cute.

I forgot to mention how much I love that picture of Mason as a toddler, so cute. I can actually see that Catcher kind of looks like him

Mason, you are such an awesome kid. I love how your mind is constantly going and you are so quick witted.

We will give you a call this evening and maybe get a little somethin' in the mail.
