Last night I was all set to do my Animal Mania: Elephants! program when some of my kids informed me they were putting on a puppet show instead. Far be it from me to keep them from their plans, so I canceled the elephants and announced that the kids would be performing instead.

The show was called “The Party” and involved Mitchell the Dog and Hippo the Hippo planning a party and inviting all their friends. Here’s the big event. Guests brought books (my kind of party). Those pieces of paper on the table are the cake and the snacks.

The cast’s final bow. They had a pretty big turn out, it was a very fun show.
