Anni in the Variety Show!


The Jokeson 5 + Janet Jokeson! (L-R Tammy, Bonnie, Patty, Chris, Anni, Mel)




Our school hosted the annual Teacher’s Variety Show to raise money for charity.  Well, those of you who know me realize there are some things I am pretty good at like having fun, raising money for charity, and having a good laugh at myself!  So this seemed like the perfect opportunity to get a group of girlfriends together and perform in the 70’s theme variety show!  We were the “Joke-son 5 + Janet Joke-son” and we performed to ABC.  How appropriate for elementary teachers right!   


Of course, those of you who know me also know how great of a procrastinator I am!  We decided to participate 3 days before the show!!!  Tuesday, we went to the costume shop and rented 70’s clothes.  We got obnoxious bell-bottom pants, loud shirts, sparkly jackets, huge glasses and of course afro wigs.  We rehearsed on Wednesday and Thursday and performed on Friday night.  

We were surprised how good we actually looked and we had a blast performing it.  Many of my students came to the show and held up signs that they had made!  I felt like I was on American Idol.  Only I was as bas as Sanjaya!  Check out the funny pictures of us.
