Jingle Bells, Jingle Bells, Jingle All the Way

This Sunday, Griffin, Jori and I will be Jingling All the Way down the streets of downtown Houston. It's the Chevron YMCA annuual Jingle Bell Run and Walk.

We are stoked. Well, I am. But, Griffin- not so much. He will be great though. He's doing the Kid's 1 mile Fun Run. I know he's got it in him and he's been working hard to get ready.

Just a few weeks ago he crossed the finish line of the Katy Turkey Trot 5K and look how excited he was when he made that home stretch.

This run should be quite fun. There will be reindeer antlers, jingle bells, and lots of costumes.

I'm not quite sure how people can gallop down the streets for 5 miles in costumes, but apparently it's a regular part of this event.

How do you think she managed that pink tutu for the entire run? She's a stronger lady than me. That's for sure.

However, I am looking forward to  heading up to the DFW area to dress up with by BFF for The Great Urban Adventure later next year.

We'll look something like this and have the time of our lives! I really can't wait.

Hope you all are having a Jingling kind of weekend.

Hey- I have a post coming with some info on the run. I started it last night, but I was just so exhausted and couldn't finish. I'm not sure, but I don't think my exhaustion was as much because of the run as it was the wine and pizza I pigged out on last night.
