Embry-Riddle Aeronautical University Graduation - Prescott, AZ - 12 Dec 2009

I am going to toot my own horn here for a minute. I graduated from Embry-Riddle today in Prescott, AZ. The degree is Master of Aeronautical Science (MAS) and my Capstone Project title was: Single Operator Control of Multiple UAV's: Are We Ready?

We took a roadtrip out to Arizona to walk in the graduation commencement which was held today at the Prescott Campus. A good friend that I did most of the degree with came out and we walked together. It was great to have Stacy and the kids and my parents there with me to celebrate!

Palmdale 10K and Kids 1K - 05 Dec 2009

It was frieking cold and the wind was blowing like crazy. The run was along the California Acqueduct, which was pretty cool. Skye did great.....she came in like 5th or 6th place. I ran the 10K in 55:12, about 5 minutes better than last year.

Big Pimpin'

I hesitate to post this picture, but we laugh every time we see it. It was taken at a friend's birthday party where the kids were doing dressup and glam shots. Landon fell in love with this hat and we don't know where the pose came from.....really, we don't......

Christmas Gingerbread

The kids love this tradition each year. Much of the candy doesn't make it onto the house, but we have a blast during construction.

A Shaver Lake Thanksgiving......

The McCollum side of the family traveled to Shaver Lake, CA to spend Thanksgiving this year. We stayed in Lyndsay's family cabin and rented the cabin next door. The whole family was there, so it was really nice. A little sickness going around and a quarantine cabin were the only unhighlights of the weekend. We got out to the lake to feed the ducks and eat lunch, but it was super cold. Most of the time was spent inside playing Guitar Hero or Wii Snowboarding, which is a blast, by the way. We got a dusting of snow on Friday night which was neat for the kids. The 4runner does very nice donuts in the cul-de-sac too.........

Enjoy the pics.....
