And, because my favorite preview for the new movie is when Marty the zebra sings "polka dot polka dot afro circus!" (see here), I had to make Marty's Polka Dot Circus cookies - in reality, these were just a "Funfetti" cookie mix with "polka dot" sprinkles.
Before dinner, the kids decided to go outside and try their hand at some "circus tricks" - the girls were experts at the "ball through the hoops" trick. They also walked a tightrope and did some acrobatics on the swings!
