Happy 9th Birthday!

Wow! Indescribable! What a night! THANK YOU everyone for sharing Mason's special night. Every 100 of You!! It was a night Mason will remember forever!! We treasure each and every one of you, I wish I could have spent more time letting each of you know! I know how much it meant to Mason, because that is all he talked about!! A KU Jayhawk made a surprise appearance, thank you Carolyn!! It was very meaningful. Mason likes both KU and MU, he always talks about college. The picture with a Jayhawk and Tiger cake represents so much and is very sentimental! ( he wore his KU shirt almost everyday at St. Jude.) The entire party was sentimental, I held back tears so many times. Mason's 3 favorite songs were played throughout the night, "I've got a Feeling", "Gummi Bear Song" and "Phineas and Ferb" theme song! The most touching part was at the end, the song "My Wish" was played. Just like the song, "While you're out there getting where you're getting to, I hope you know somebody loves you." We felt the love at Bluejacket!!! Mason, out of the blue wanted to release his #9 balloon. We did this one other time on his birthday for Grandma Ruth-who shares Mason's birthday. Mason had 3 awesome cakes, the wind was blowing, so we only lit one candle, but after the party we brought the tiger cake home, and he got to make his wish! And then we opened presents. Thank you everyone for being part of Mason's most memorable birthday party ever!!! A special thank you to Abby and the staff at Bluejacket Pool who made Mason's night phenomenal. The evening ended like it did 9 years ago, I told Mason the story of his birth, and he fell asleep in my arms. Thanks for the memories!!

What a perfect party! All the kids were having so much fun swimming, diving, playing with Mason after missing him so much, of course diving into yummy cake and licorice, dancing with the Jayhawk Rock Chalk KU!, special music from the speakers, the St. Jude bracelets and water blasters. Now, put your feet up and enjoy the pictures and memories. Thanks for inviting Alexandra, that meant a lot to us.
