Happy New Year!

The past month has flown by! We raced (literally doing 5k and 10k races) through Florida, Alabama, Louisiana, and Arkansas. We are officially on the “Brooks Joggle Happy Tour” until the end of April. The past week we were in Wisconsin visiting family and it was a much needed break from the road. We were excited to hand deliver our annual Christmas Extravaganza CD to each of our family members. We flew into Milwaukee to stay with Bob’s family for a few days in Oconomowoc. We surprised Bob’s little sis Katie at her school as soon as we got in. The next day Trish sprained her ankle playing some pick-up basketball at the local YMCA. :( She is icing like crazy and is praying for a fast recovery. The next few days were a blur of family fun and Christmas parties with the Evans clan. Then we drove north to Iron River, Wisconsin to hang out with Trisha’s side of the family. We collaborated with Trisha’s younger sisters, Jess and Nicole (ages 24 and 21), and Trisha’s dad, Scott, on a new shoe idea: heals made of deer hooves… look for the prototype in 2012! ;) We played a lot of cards with Trisha’s mom, Linnea and her husband, Al. Bob, Trish, and Nikki made a good run, but in the end, Linnea, Al and Jess were the Euchre victors.

It was really great being with family for Christmas. Now we are back on the road, making our way through Texas. We hope everyone had a Merry Christmas and has a safe and fun New Year. Let us know what your 2012 goals are!
