Maybe it just seemed like a circus b/c 4 of the 12 of us were 5 and under...any way it comes out...we had a ball at the circus. The Florida Strattons (Neil's middle brother's family) were here from the 21st to the 26th. The kids played and played and played. They decorated gingerbread men cookies. The played with Brock's Leapster. They broke things in Paula's house (I still don't know the whole story on that). The grown kids all went down to Chuy's and Aaron had an Elvis Platter, yummy. All in all, we had a fabulous Christmas vacation.
