For the last five years, Toby and Laura Terry have made it their mission to make kids smile on Christmas morning.
It was no different for the couple on a blustery Sunday afternoon during the 33rd Annual Marine Toys for Tots Motorcycle Toy Run.
"It is all about putting a smile on kids faces," Toby Terry said while donning a full Santa suit complete with a beard.
His wife was dressed as an elf.
The Terrys went the extra mile this year constructing a small sleigh to hitch to their motorcycle. The contraption included a large stuffed bear, huge candy canes and just enough room left over to house several gifts for children.
Several thousand riders began gathering at Expo Center about 10 a.m. before they would head to the Blue Dome District to drop off toys that would be delivered to needy children in time for the big day.
