A is for Angie #AtoZChallenge

Here we are, the first day of the 2014 A to Z Challenge! This is my fourth year participating, although I didn't finish it last year.

I don't usually do a "Theme", unless you count getting off of my lazy butt and writing a theme... :)

So A... well that's an easy one, A is for Angie - my little girl. She's six now, well six and a half, as she often reminds me. She's very smart and creative, why just a few weeks ago she put on a puppet show for Lenny and I.

The first thing we noticed were signs... "Puppet Show Today DO NOT MISS"

It's important to advertise.
The show featured a Zebra. 

 And a Tiger

 And a giraffe, whose string was lost... so he was put together with tape - a somewhat tragic tale that ends well, just as long as he doesn't try to move too fast... 

And finally, an elephant.  

Our stalwart adventurers encountered a pirate!!

who wasn't sure just how best to wear her eye patch 

This may have been my suggestion...

And when the play was over, our Puppet-Mistress took a well deserved bow.  

What was the plot? She spent so much time staging the play, putting up signs, arranging chairs for us to sit in, setting up her "state" and putting out snacks (left over Halloween candy LOL (yes, in March)), that she never really got around to planning the play. So, she pretty much made up the story (and acted out) on the spot. 

All in all, I give Angie's Puppet Show 5 out of 5 stars :)


  1. Hooray for plot-free puppet theater! Angie's getting so big... *sigh*

  2. Hi I' stopping by from A to Z kids are 16 and 10 so rarely have moments like this anymore. Great photos, she looks like she had a great time. Good luck for the rest of the month.
