                                 Recent Adventures - December 2012

       We flew to St Louis for a Monteith family reunion for Christmas at Keith's.  We had lots of fun
                until we managed to get that strange flu/cold that kicked our butts the last few days.

                                      Did we mention how cold it was in St Louis??  Chip tried on one of Marci's hats, but it was snug.

                                It was "present time" and Parker and Dylan racked up.  Mom enjoyed her presents, too

                  We started to play Crud, but the table wobbled.                  Driving a race car was a big hit with all of the boys.
