My personal entertainers...

I've had a somewhat stressful week. As I was struggling to finish the dreaded video and had to run to WalMart to buy DVD's for said dreaded video and miss dinner with my family, I was definitely not in a pleasant mood. Jordan asked me what she could do to make it better. She started listing off ideas: clean up after dinner, watch a movie with me, paint my toenails, draw a hot bath for me... and my was reply was "I want a puppet show."

Her reply, "Uh, Um, OK."

And so this eighteen year old who has so much more to do than produce puppet shows featuring 5 younger siblings, put on the mother of all puppet shows for me. I cried I was laughing so hard. They were all really good, but I think Josh won the prize for biggest surprise actor in a puppet role. He was absolutely hysterical. Comedic timing, funny accent... everything. It's the most we've heard him talk in 9 months. We should have put a puppet on his hand the minute he got here. His first show was the best, but it didn't tape well because I was laughing so hard the camera was shaking all over the place. Here's his second performance.
Make sure you watch it all the way through... the ending is the best. And listen for "sweetey and dizzert." It's hysterical.

That was so cute I had to watch it twice! Sweety and dizzert cracked me up! I want to creat a puppet stage for my kids now!
