Santa left Adella five glass animals in a stocking last year. From those little glass guys came this parable of acceptance.
Once I got for Christmas,
Five animals, all glass.
They were an elephant--the largest,
A pig, the next one down,
A dog and a mouse that's shorter
And a ladybug shorter than that.
The Five Animals
There were five animals: an elephant named George, a pig named Pinky, a dog named Arfy, a mouse named Squeaks, and a ladybug named Dotty.
One day, Squeaks sent birthday cards to all his friends. He was having a party. It was at his home.
They all came, but George couldn't fit in.
He got an idea! "We can all go to the beach!" he said. So they went, had ice cream and cake, and partied.
