Welcome to the Party!


















Welcome, welcome. I'm so glad you could join us! Today is the big party and we are all ready to go! Do you have your party duds? Let's round up the troops and head over to Vanessa's. Okay?





You don't know how to get there? That's easy - just follow the signs!







We are headed for the Castle in the Woods. Look! There are some of the guests just arriving.







I know, it doesn't look very party-ready, does it? That's because everything is set up in the garden.







But we know we are in the right place. There's another sign!







And looks who else is here! Say hello to Mona, Zaida, and Penny. Don't you just lo-o-o-ve Zaida's earrings?







Some more guests. There's Agatha and Jolene. Audine has just come in from the seashore. And the Duchess has graced us with her presence. LOL! Looks like she has some new gossip for Azura. Let's join in!







Ah, I see. She is checking out the costumes. Well, we said that masquerade was optional, you know. And we have a few brave ones. I see Mitsuki with her kimono and fan. And The Snow Queen is always welcome. I don't know who the Batgirl is - after all, it IS a secret identity! Hmm. Looks like she's put on a few pounds. Maybe that is why she's hiding behind Fatima. Don't you just love Fatima's beaded belt?



Why don't you wander over to the refreshments table while I check on the entertainers. What's that? Why of course we will be having entertainment! Okay, let me tell you what's on the agenda.






Chester the Jester will open up the show. He has a lot of new material and is anxious to see what you think of it. He will also be the Master of Ceremonies, so give him a warm welcome. Then Fanny, the Funny Girl, will juggle for us. She does acrobatic, too! Also, we are so pleased to have Frannie and Zoe joining us. These two are the best of friends and so-o-o-o talented! Don't you just love elephants? And for the Grand Finale, the Glockenspiel Sisters will sing for us. They have a very wide repertoire and have promised to do some special requests. How about the Beer Barrel Polka?



There's so much to see and do, so let's get going. Next we'll head over to A Fanciful Twist and see the goodies Vanessa has prepared for us. She will direct us to the next venue. Oh! This is going to be such a great Party!

We were so glad that your party brought elephants, too. The entertainment was delightful and it was wonderful meeting all of your friends. Say, was that the Duchess I saw putting the Red Queen in her place? Good for her!
