Walking in a Winter Wonderland

As some of you might have remembered we did our 3rd Annual Jingle Bell Walk/Run this past weekend! It was our 2nd year doing it with 4 generations of walkers! 
 Stratton was seriously SO excited for this day to come. I told him that if he ran he could win a prize!

 I love how all walks of life come to run and walk for a good cause!
 We put jingle bells on our shoes. It's something fun to do and Stratton enjoys hearing his feet jingle while he walks.
 He looks like such a big boy with his running number on!
 He wanted me to make sure I got a picture of him covering his mouth while he coughs. He's been really good about it lately.
One more big cheesy smile before we go up to start walking.
 Three generations of walkers. Stratton didn't like Santa so he kept looking at him to make sure he stayed away. Haha.
 This little guy RAN the whole mile!
 My sister Casey, my Grandma Marge, and step-Grandpa John. Enjoying the one mile walk. 
 Stratton ran the ENTIRE time!
 We had to make a few pit stops so he could wave to the lifeguard on duty.
 Grandma Kathie finally showed up after getting home at 3am from working. Glad she made it though.
 Sisters! Nothing like a wonderful picture with bed hair and no makeup.
 This little girl was so stinking cute too. She's only a few months younger than but she's so petite! It's adorable!
 Every time Stratton got close she had to make sure she started running again.
 Her little bow and outfit were so dang cute. 

Grandma Kathie and Stratton were having so much fun.
 After the one mile walk Stratton did the Tot Trot.
 This was how far they ran. It was a good 100 yard dash.
 Stratton came in 1st!
 He looks SO grown up with his little metal!
 He thought that it was so cool that he came in first.
 Trying to show that he came in first.
 There we go!
 Great Grandpa John, Great Grandma Marge, Aunt Casey, Grandma Kathie, Stratton, and me!
Here was her outfit from the front. She ran with us last year too.

Sunday night we had the pleasure of eating all together with a young man that was granted the scholarship that is in memory of my Uncle Mark. My Uncle Mark passed away at a young age due to a virus that settle in his heart. It was nice to get to see the scholarship go to such a good guy. His name was Michael, he was very nice to talk to and he seems to have a good head on his shoulders. I'm glad that my Uncles Scholarship can help him with his studies.
