Over the Top Holiday Newsletters - Fun and Games With Jenners
Creative Jenners, over at Life with A Little One and More, is hosting a game called "Over the Top Holiday Newsletters." Some days, this "life" I described in my over the top newsletter may not be too far fetched. This was a fun game to do. Jump over to Jenners' blog to join in.
Dear Family and Friends,
It has been an eventful twelve months here at Kelly's Circus! I know many of you don't necessarily agree with our family's decision to pursue our dreams as circus performers. Maybe you'll consider coming to a performance (held on the third Thursday of every month in our glue gunned Home Depot Instant Circus Tent behind our deck) after reading about my talented crew here at Kelly's Circus.
Ladies and Gentlemen, let me present our illustrious and often whining circus performers:
Curly Top Kelly Suburban New York's Premier Mama Juggler: Watch as Kelly juggles juice boxes, basketballs, paper towels, dirty socks, meatballs, 4,232 school memos and half-naked Barbie dolls all on one foot!!
Sometimes Awake Extraordinaire Hubby Neighbor Tamer: Watch as snoozing (definitely unconscious) husband bellows out various snoring sounds to scare away even the most ferocious and obnoxious neighbor as they approach his rocking recliner. Do they dare go near without earmuffs?
Almost Teen Gadget High Wire Boy: You will be amazed at the concentration exhibited by this young man as he balances on the high wire while texting, Ipoding (circus term) and mumbling. Such powers of concentration on his gadgets. I bet he won't even notice the audience!
The Clown of 1,001 One Liners: The mismatch king will model his unique and eclectic fashion sense as he entertains the audience with one sarcastic remark after another. Trained for years by Curly Top Mama, our clown will do his characteristic "Captain Kirk" eyebrow raise as he zings you with a clever quip. This week's line: "I'll show you outrageous!" Dictionaries to explain his witticisms will be available at our lemonade stand after the show.
Huggy Boy and Sweetie Pie's Stuffed Animal Parade: Watch how this four foot and under duo arrange 3,419 stuffed animals into the longest, longest, longest parade as they await your ooh's and ahh's after each animal's entrance. No snoozing allowed during the parade (except snoring Hubby) because our little performers may get a little miffed if they're ignored. Curly Top Kelly will suggest the "acceptable" compliment for each animal's debut. We don't want unhappy little circus performers. They may tear down the tent :)
So that's how I spend my third Thursdays. The rest of the week is mostly spent finding all of those stuffed animals :) I'm enclosing some complimentary tickets (designed by Jillian in beautiful finger smudged water color) in case you would like to see all our "talent" in person!
