It's been a long time, but what better way to dust off the old blog than by making a special announcement.  What news you say?  Well, I'll tell you.

Announcing the impending arrival of the first Dave and Christi Cason grandchild!!!

That's right!  Our Jessica (she's the one on the right, in case you didn't know) is now 31 weeks along with our first grand-daughter.  Yes it has been confirmed to be a girl and the planned name for her is Jaedyn Rae Tyler.  Jessica has honored her mom by using her middle name.  I never thought I'd say this, but I am so happy to be having my first grandchild.  I expect that by the time she's old enough to say it, I'll even be ready to be called "Grandpa"...or maybe "Paw-paw".  Christi is hoping to be a "Mee-maw".  I guess we'll find out.

Mostly though, we want to say, Congratulations! to Jessica and her Fiance Cameron.  We just know they'll be great parents and we will sure do our best to be the kind of grandparents every kid wants...
The kind that gives great presents and doesn't tell you too many stories about how bad it was when we were kids.  Fat Chance kid! 

She's due around February 12th and I think it's gonna be a really great new year!

More updates to come...

Getting two kids out of bed, dressed, fed and out the door can be a challenge for any family, so imagine what its like living with 13 children or more a lot more. Youve heard of the Duggars, but in California, the Casons and their 16 children struggle to find a home with enough space.Then theres 67-year-old Ziona Chana in northeast India, who, with his polygamous family of more than 160 all living under one roof, gives the term megafamily a whole new meaning.

I almost don't know where to start...

So much has happened since we last posted, I could probably type out my usual long-winded posts for several days and still miss telling you everything.  So for once, I'll try to condense things a bit, (Fat chance says my inner smart ass) and hit most of it in this post.  Since last October, the short sale we have been in has dragged on and on and may finally be getting somewhere.  We've been waiting on this one since April 14th 2011 and things are beginning to stir at the bank.  They've come back with a counter which we accepted and our loan paperwork is underway.  There may still be some wait, but finally something is happening.  We also went through a long battle with our landlord over a mold infestation in the duplex we lived in for over 12 years.  Christi had been feeling sick and while looking into it, she saw a special describing the effects of mold on humans and it caused her to look in our attic where she found loads of it.  This led her to report it to the landlord, which opened up a whole new can of worms and started a whole protracted battle which ultimately involved city authorities and the local housing authority. 

We also moved into the house we are buying, which got Christi away from the mold and her health has subsequently improved.  During this same time, we were contacted by a British media company and they filmed us for a special that will be airing on a major cable network (we can't disclose which one yet, but maybe soon).  The crew was with us for 2 weeks including Christmas day, and they tell us that the finished product looks really good.  We will announce the air date as soon as we are allowed to do so.

In the meantime, my new job has kept me extremely busy, but I really love what I do and the company has been great.  So much so, that for this year's company picnic, they treated employees and their families to a fancy buffet luncheon at the Disney California Grand hotel in the posh Sequoia ballroom.  Oh yeah, they also threw in park hopper passes for Disney and California Adventure for the whole family.  That's what I said: the whole family.  That's 16 tickets (Sawyer and Nathaniel were free).  It was an awesome time that will warrant a post of it's own later on. 

Stay tuned...
