Well, our friend Cassi called one day a few weeks after Halloween and said she had the most random and cool thing to tell me. It went something like this: (It has been a while, so Cass, if I don't get all the details right, feel free to correct me!) Cassi works with some guy who was an Olympic swimmer back in the day and now works with the US Swim Team in some way, maybe like marketing or something...can't remember exactly. Anyways, Cassi saw our Halloween pictures and thought they were funny and thought her friend at work would appreciate it since he was a former swimmer and just the kind of person who would get a kick out of a baby in a speedo. So she emailed him the picture. THEN he called her back and said that he loved it so much he sent it to Michael Phelps!!! SOOOO Michael Phelps got a big enough kick out of it that he sent Kanyon an autographed poster! In all honesty, we're not 100% on the authenticity of the autograph, but who cares! He sent him the poster!!! So, thanks to Cassi we have a great new poster!!! We've actually had it for a while, I just keep forgetting to blog about it. And could you please pretend you're reading this BEFORE the whole Phelps with the bong pictures emerged on TMZ!! Thanks.
OK the next one actually started back when the twins were born. My cousin Julie is a news anchor in Waco, so she got to do a lot of coverage of President Bush since his ranch is right outside of Waco. Anyways, Julie eventually got to be friends with people close to the prez and when our babies were born, she told them about their birth. We got a part hand written/part typed official for real signed letter from President Bush sending his condolences on the loss of Jayde. THEN a few days after his 2nd birthday, we receive an envelope addressed to Master Kanyon Phillips. From none other than George W. himself. Another hand written/typed letter wishing Kanyon a happy 2nd birthday.
So, pretty much Kanyon is famous. If you'd like a play date or a chance to hang out with him, Have your people call his people. Ha ha.
