|John David, Thomas|
Thomas is a devoted tiger. He actually laid face down on the sofa nearly the entire first half of the Iron Bowl.
John David has not yet declared his allegiance to either team. He just likes to cheer.
|last year's Christmas gift|
They love wearing this ensemble, particularly the pants.
They asked to wear the pants to daycare every day.
Thomas only wishes there was a "teef strap" with the helmet.
|We took a trip to Sewanee in September.|
Our Uncle Billy was inducted into
the University of the South's Athletic Hall of Fame.

I love this picture.
He did this on his own.
|In 2010, Mark and his friend and partner, Brandon, had a kennel built at the pasture |
for their dog training business, Blackbelt Retrievers.
(This was much to his wife Kelley's and my delight as well - no more dogs in our backyard!)
