Thanksgiving was Far Out!

Hello future readers!

I know this is a late entry, but the holidays are always so busy! It was super groovy having Kim stay with us; almost like having a sister. We got up early on Thanksgiving morning. My mom made a big breakfast and we watched the parade. Kim's favorite balloon was Mickey Mouse. Mine was Tom Turkey. After the parade, we helped Mom fix dinner. Kim was in charge of the green beans, I was in charge of the mashed potatoes. It all smelled so good while it was cooking, it was so hard to wait. Then, finally my mom said it was time to get dressed. Kim and I were so excited when we set the kids' table.

We helped my mom bring all the food out. There was turkey, green beans, mashed potatoes and cranberry sauce. It all looked so yummy!

I had just put the cranberry sauce on the table when the doorbell rang.  The girls all came over together; Cheryl, Jennifer, Lisa, Stephanie and Melody.

I was kinda sad that all of my friends couldn't come over, but Danny, Sunny, Susan, Raychel, Robyn, April and Wendy all had other plans with their families. Besides, my mom said it would be too hard to cook dinner for all those people! My Uncle Richard blessed the food, and Kim's dad, Jeff carved the turkey. Then at last it was time to EAT! All of the food was delicious!

Later it was time for dessert. We never have just one thing like pie at our house. This year we had pie, and ice-cream, Jell-O, and cake.

After we finished our dessert, all us kids decided to play Charades. It was so much fun! Cheryl gives really good clues. Do people still play Charades in the future?

I guess we were having too much fun, because my mom said we all needed to calm down and watch television for awhile. That was OK, because "The Walton's Homecoming" was on. We all like that one. Melody thinks "John-Boy" is cute! Hahaha!

We were all having such a good time, I didn't want it to end. But everyone had to go home, including Kim.  Her parents had gotten all the big things unpacked , and Kim could sleep in her own bed in her new house. I was happy for her, but sad for me, because I was gonna miss her sleeping in my room. But hey, that's what slumber parties are for! Anyway, it was a really dynamite holiday. I hope yours was just as groovy.

Until next time future readers,
Your friend,
Julie Newman
