Christmas-y Happenings

We got into the Christmas spirit at our house this past weekend by participating in a couple of things that were happening around town. One of them was called the Jingle Bell Jog that was held at the elementary school. It didn't work out for Aaron or me to take the kids, so our pal Jay was nice enough to take Jenna and Brody. Jay showed up at our house in a santa hat and so the kids had to put theirs on too. They even got little bells to put on their shoes. Getting ready for the race...
The race was a fundraiser to get an old train depot moved to State Center (hence the RR crossing stuff). I am in LOVE with this picture of Brody. His face is so him. :)
Jenna is cartwheel obsessed!!! If there's space, she will do cartwheels. She's seriously out of control.
When all was said and done, the kids (and Jay!) ended up doing 2 miles. I would say that's pretty darn good for little legs. Jenna ended up getting second place in her division. I think they all had a really good time!

They held a breakfast with Santa on Saturday in a nearby town. I killed two birds with one stone by taking the kids down and also getting pictures for the paper. We had to BEG Brody to sit on Santa's lap. He said he wanted some transformer thing that turns into a fire truck. No clue what that is... :)
Jenna had no fear. She wants a hula hoop and a DS. We'll see what Santa brings her... :)
We are getting in the Christmas spirit! If only it would snow!! SIGH. Anyway, the Huneckes are headed our way this weekend and we are really excited to see everybody.

Miss you guys, hope the holidays haven't been too crazy (though I imagine with 4 kiddos they just ARE)- maybe dinner over winter break? We'll be back in town on the 27th- let me know if you need anything taken to Sioux City :)
