Sleeping Over at Wendy and April's House

Hello future readers!

Last night, I spent the night at April and Wendy's house. It had been a while since I slept over, and I wanted to hang out with the sisters before we all started getting really busy with Christmas.

I love how they sometimes dress like twins. I asked them about it once. Wendy told me that it was really hard on her the 6 months they were apart because of April's car accident. She thought her sister would never walk again! When they came back to Springfield last Christmas, they were as close as 2 sisters could be! Even though April is a year older (and got held back because she missed so much school), they felt like twins, so they decided that sometimes, (but not always) they should dress like twins! Gosh they're lucky...sometimes I wish I had a sister.

Anyway, we sat around for awhile, rapping, eating Jiffy Pop and drinking Kool-Aid. We talked about what we wanted for Christmas. I want a new radio. Wendy wants a new doll, and April wants to meet her favorite TV star, Michael Gray. He plays Billy Batson on the Saturday morning TV show, "Shazam!". April thinks he's the dreamiest thing on 2 legs. I think he's cute, but not as cute as David Cassidy! Hahaha! Wendy and I both told her that there was no way she was gonna get Michael Gray under the tree with a big ribbon tied around his neck! Hee! April told us that she really wanted a make-up set.

Then Wendy wanted to play dolls. She and April have extra doll clothes for their Holly Hobbie dolls. Their favorite show is "Little House On the Prairie". Wendy always wants to be Laura, because she always wears her hair in pigtails just like Laura does on T.V.

After we finished playing dolls, I pulled my "Operation" game out of my bag. April loves that game. And she beat me and Wendy too! She only got buzzed once!

It was getting kinda late, so we got ready for bed. Right after we got our pajamas on, Wendy grabbed her pillow from her bed, and gave April a funny look. April grabbed her pillow too, and they both started coming towards me. Two against one! Hey! That's no fair!

They clobbered me! But it was fun, anyway. But I guess we got kinda carried away, 'cos the girls' mom came upstairs and told us to knock it off and go to bed. April got her book "Ramona The Pest" and read Wendy and me a bedtime story. I've heard some kids in our class say that they're too old for bedtime stories. Not me! I love to sit with my mom in her big, comfy chair and have her read to me.  I think it will be a sad day when I get too old for that!

After a couple of chapters, we decided to call it a night and go to bed. I really had a groovy time. I love having slumber parties with my friends. I wonder if kids to have sleepovers in the future? I'll bet all you have to do is get in your transporter and beam over to your friend's planet if you wanted to, like on "Star Trek".  I bet that would be fun!

Until next time, future readers,
Your friend,
Julie Newman
