Tinsel Tastes Good To Dee Ann Strong.
Dee Ann Strong, daughter of Mr. and Mrs. Jon Strong, was one year old the 24th of November. Just the right age to pull the tinsel from the tree and break a few ornaments. She has three brothers, Randy, Jon Jr., and Greg, and one sister Sandy who keeps her informed about Santa Claus and from un-doing packages before Christmas.
The Camera Interests Twins More Than Gifts
Gifts will come in pairs at the Cliff Linthicum household this year for the identical twin daughters, Leasa and Treasa. The girls are eighteen months old, so Christmas is still a mystery, as well as Santa Claus.
