In Memory...

Today Shelby and I went to the doctor for our first official visit. We had been to the doctor last week for a quick check up and sonogram to make sure everything was going ok with the Baby. This morning we got more info from her doctor and we had another sonogram taken. We did not get the expected news during our sonogram and found out that the baby wasn't growing properly; the heart beat, which we had heard 6 days ago, was now gone. We are both in shock and devastated but we know it's part of God's plan for our family. We know we will see "BabySoko" in heaven one day! Thanks to all of our family and friends for their prayers and thoughts during this time.

Well it has been awhile since i've last posted! We have been quite busy with a trip visiting Charlie's parents in Florida, Cade's flag football team, and other school activities! Cade recently had a Fairy Tale ball that he got to dress up for at school, he was a knight!

It has been quite the busy month but last week was a really exciting week for our family, as we found out we are expecting!!! We are shocked but extremely excited! We have almost been married for 6 months now, and apparently not wasting anytime!!!! The Mason gene will definitely live on as we are popping out babies left and right!!

I leave you with a few pictures and some great artist for the month:

Farmer's Market/Heritage Village

So Cade and I took a "field trip" to the Farmers Market and Dallas Heritage Village a couple of weeks ago. He absolutely loved going on a field trip! He kept asking afterwards, "What other field trips can we go on?" And he meant right then. So we stopped by the Highland Park Pharmacy, which I have been wanting to try for awhile now, and ate lunch together sitting at the high bar looking out onto Henderson. We had so much fun together!

I cherish the time that Cade and I get to do fun outtings like this because with our busy life it doesnt seem to happen to often and he is growing up too fast!

Always eating!

Family Fun

So my dad told me I needed to change my font, for the old people! So here you are!

So this month has been a pretty busy one! We had a birthday celebration for my dad along with his mom and a few others at my aunts house in Dallas. So fun getting together with family and hearing stories from my dad and his siblings about growing up, too funny what they did back then!

I always love getting together with the Mason family, so many of us, and everyone is so warm and just easy to be with!

Here are a few pics from the gathering!

Frist day of Kindergarten

So Cade started school last week!! Monday we had orientation where Cade, Charlie, and I all went to. The kids got to go in the gym while the parents sat in their new classroom and went over things with his teacher. Then Cade and I got to come home and have a relaxing day together, Char had to go onto work. So Tuesday came, his first full day of Kindergarten, he was a little apprehensive about going. I on the other hand thought I would be fine, since he had been in preschool since he was 3. Boy was I wrong, as Im driving the whole 3 blocks to his school I almost bust into tears when we pulled in front of the school! Of course I had to hold it in, why would that make him feel anymore comfortable about going to "big kid" school? So I had to put my big girl panties on and walk him to school. We stood in the cafeteria where the kids go before the bell rings to go to class. His teacher walked by with a few other kids going to get in line, so Cade went with her, reluctant of course! So then I was off to work teary eyed and all! Fortunately, I left work early to pick Cade up on his first full day! He had a great day! Enjoy a few pics of Cade on his first day!

The Beginning

As we start this new journey together, Charlie and I are so excited about what God has in store for us. Currently Charlie and I are still trying to learn each other's little quirks and adapting to them, whether we care for them or not! Charlie seems to have the most adjustment coming from living on his own with no kids and no dogs, basically no noise! Now, he has all of those!

Life has been pretty busy these last few months, getting married, moving, Cade in summer camp at the Y, traveling with work, outtings with friends, and trips to Austin and Shreveport. It has been busy but so fun! We are enjoying life!

Cade has been gone for the last 5 weekends at his dads, and we are SO excited to have him home this weekend, and spend some time with him. Its pretty hard when he is gone so much like he was. He has gotten so big and is headed to Kindergarten in 3 weeks...!! 3 weeks!! I am both excited but nervous for all things that come along with going to public school! Cade tends to be a little bit of a class clown!!

Stay tuned for more post and pictures!
