Happy New Year! I had my annual New Year's Eve pajama party. ( I think this may become what my mom calls a "tradition".) It was super groovy! I couldn't believe it when my mom said I could invite my 13 closest friends over! She did warn me, though, that if we got too rowdy, this would be the end of this tradition! Cheryl and Danny even brought their dogs, Butterscotch and Muttley over, so Boomer would have someone to play with.
We all had to stay on the "island" of blankets Mom spread out on the floor for us. For the first hour, we all kinda separated and played games like Twister, Perfection and Trouble. Do kids still play board games in the future? I hope so, 'cos they're really a lot of fun.
Jennifer and I played with my new View-Master. She liked the Barbie reel the best.
When Susan got up to go to the bathroom, Danny grabbed Cheryl's pillow and bopped her with it!
Wow, was he ever sorry he did that, because Stephanie, Cheryl and Wendy came to Susan's rescue and creamed him with more pillows!
Danny got kinda mad because he said he was only teasing Susan, and he didn't mean for the other girls to gang up on him. I reminded him that he started it and he shouldn't expect to come to a pajama party and not get into at least one pillow fight! The other girls said they were sorry, but I'll bet it'll be a long time before Danny tries to swat any of us girls with a pillow again!
Well, after the pillow fight, I decided to take out my new radio.
I turned to a station that was playing "Dance To The Music" by Sly and the Family Stone, so that's what some of us did!
Right after that song was over, the pizzas that my mom ordered came, so we all settled down and ate pizza and popcorn and drank sodas.
My mom said it was almost midnight so some of us got our hats and leis on, and turned on "Dick Clark's New Year's Rockin' Eve". Mom filled up our glasses with soda and we toasted in the New Year!
Most of us dropped of to sleep right after that, and some of us stayed up for another hour watching more of "The Twilight Zone". We all had a dynamite time. I really hope my mom lets me keep up with this "tradition". It's really outta site when we can all get together and have fun! I think I'm really lucky to have so many friends to share special times with. I hope you future readers are just as lucky as I am!
Happy New Year!
Until next time, your friend,
