A Great Turkey Day (by Carely)

We hope that everyone had a great Thanksgiving. We sure did! To start off, I will announce the results of our canned food drive. The winning team had both the most items and the most fans' votes. The winning team is... drum roll please... TEAM 2! Team 2 had a total of 73 items. Team 1 had a total of 68 items. so altogether we collected 141 items! When we donated our items to our local food bank, the people there were so happy. It felt good to know that we had made a difference. On the day before Thanksgiving, we went to see Molly, Kirsten, and Nicki perform in their Thanksgiving play. It told the story of the first Thanksgiving. The play was cute. After the show, Nicki complained about only having one line: "Gobble, Gobble!" But, all three of them said that they had a fun time! The next morning, everyone was up early to watch the Thanksgiving Day Parade. After that, I took control of the kitchen and started to make the meal with the help of my fellow chefs, Kaya and Kit. Boy, did we make a mess! I felt bad for myself and the rest of Team 1. The counters were covered with pots, pans, and scraps of food. I was not looking forward to cleaning the kitchen. Thanksgiving dinner was delicious! I was flattered by all the compliments my cooking received. After everyone stuffed themselves, Angela, Chrissa, Felicity, Jessica, Josefina, Julie, and I reluctantly trudged into the kitchen. Our arms felt like rubber from all the scrubbing and cleaning. When we finally finished, we were ready to reward our hard work with big slices of pumpkin pie! It didn't take long for us to clean our plates, and for Kit to devour the entire bottle of whipped cream! We have so much to be thankful for and I'm glad we took the time to realize that. Happy Thanksgiving everyone!
