My friends Maile and Jason invited us to their son's first birthday. When their daughter was born, I made her a stuffed "bear" that she calls HAPPY.
So I decided to keep the tradition going, and made a puppet for their son.
Puppets are fun, because it gives us the excuse to learn the art of ventriloquy.
The other day I bought How to Become a Ventriloquist by Edgar Bergen for 25 cents. Best 25 cents I've ever spent. We've spent the past few weeks practicing, for it says that "... you must have the determination to practice constantly and regularly because only faithful practice brings the ease and poise which are essential to successful ventriloquy."
