Happy Thanksgiving!

 Hi! This is Kit.
Although Thanksgiving is tomorrow, our school had a Thanksgiving party today. All of our family's were invited.
My mother decided that a Thanksgiving dinner was a dressy affair, so she helped me raid my closet for something appropriate to wear for the occasion.
This outfit is what we came up with.
This dress would not have been my first choice.
I was originally wanting to wear something blue, and then mom found this.

"Here's that dress that Grannie Susie gave you for your birthday!" she exclaimed at the sight of it.
I squirmed awkwardly. "Um, yeah!"
"Why don't you wear it tonight? Grannie has been complaining that you have never worn this dress!"

It's creepy how grandparents always know.

In a matter of minutes I had been stuffed into my overly-frilly birthday present.
I was going to put fancy clips in my hair, but mom said she preferred the "natural look". It was a little late for that.

I wandered out into the hallway, and nearly ran right into my older brother, Charlie. I have to say, my outfit was nothing compared to his. He was wearing khaki pants, and an atrocious sweater. It had a weird mixture of plaid and argyle. Creative, yes. Attractive, no.
We took one look at each other and only had one thing to ask. "Grannie Sue?"

Every family was supposed to bring a side dish and a dessert to the Thanksgiving party. I helped my mom make lemon bars and stuffing. I tried to keep from sampling too much, but about three lemon bars did disappear somehow!!
When we arrived at school, I was pleasantly surprised to see that all of my friends—including the McIntire's and the Doll's—were there.
I was absolutely thrilled to see Molly McIntire. Apparently her mother belongs to the same school of thought as mine; she was severely overdressed. I couldn't have been happier. After all, misery loves company!

We all found a table together. All the kids sat on one end, and the adults sat on the other.
Down at the kid's side of the table, we had fun folding our napkins into paper cranes and airplanes while we waited to eat.
All of the food (Especially the lemon bars!!) was very good, but I think the best part of the Thanksgiving Dinner was being with my friends and family.
Happy Thanksgiving!!!

Oh, how I remember the days when my mom would make me wear something that I just hated. There was this one dress...oooh, too painful.

And curls! I remember the smell of the permanent solutions. Phew!

I'm sure Kit and I are both happy those days are over. ^__^
