Hello Again!

Hey, everybody! It has been a long time since either Suni or I wrote, so I thought I would do a quick post here and let everyone know that we have been doing great, despite our prolonged silence. We had a lot to be thankful for this Thanksgiving, not the least of which is healthy kids. Waylon is obsessed with Davy Crockett, the Disney version of which we have seen every day for months. He was Davy Crockett for Halloween!

Calvin is talking up a storm! He is finally even saying his own name. In fact, he likes to talk about himself in the third person right now. He is the sweetest and most devilish child imaginable. He is one of those kids it is hard to discipline because he makes you laugh.

LIGHTS OUT? Oops! Maybe those California boycotts of Arizona were a little short sighted.

Quality Time

Today was a great day for Waylon and me. I took him to get a haircut at Keith Graves' barber shop in Friendsville, Tennessee. Keith gave me my first haircut thirty years ago. Waylon was perfectly behaved and held still the entire time.

Waylon is in Nashville with me tonight. I am taking him with me to a mediation tomorrow for no reason other than I just wanted to spend some time with him before I go out to Montana to backpack next week with my cousin Brad. Waylon had fun tonight playing with his cousin Aidan. After a bath and Cat in the Hat, he fell asleep as soon as his head hit the pillow, two hours past his bedtime.

Calvin got tubes today, so we hope this will mark the end of his constant battle with ear infections. I'm very fortunate to have two great boys and a wonderful wife. We have had a rough year or so, but things are looking up!

Last Friday I hiked up to Charlie's Bunion with Mike Devore. It was an awesome day. There were officially 21 inches of snow, but it looked more like three feet to us. We pretty much had the trail to ourselves. I've been needing to do that for a long time.

This pic is Devore's ugly mug. That is me up on the rock in the background. The view from up there is one of the most spectacular in the Smokies.
