Thanksgiving!

11:23 AM

(Told by Ivy!)
"Good morning Kanani!" I said to my sister. She looked like she was on the verge of panic. 

"Could you take these to the dinner table for me? Connor and Caroline forgot them, and I can't take them, the oven is almost done preheating..and I need the wagon they took so we can start hauling chairs over as well..." I told her I would do it but I didn't know the way- you see, our house doesn't have enough room for a table that sits 15 dolls, so the dining table is a temporary table set up every holiday, somewhere in Momma's house. 


Kanani told me Chocolate Chip knew the way and I could hook him up to the dog sled and he could take me. 


I felt kinda silly, because it was meant for winter in the snow, and I was parading around Momma's house. 


I found them setting up the table- canvas stacked on clothing boxes. Very classy. 


I pulled Chip in. 


Connor and I did the exchange, wagon, 


for silverware, cups, and plates. 


I decided to give Chocolate Chip a break, and haul him home. 


Saige and Abigale started hauling chairs to the table. 











We all came and sat down. While I had hoped to sit with Zoe, we both sat ta the two ends of the table. Family tradition for the two new dolls to sit at the ends or something like that. 




The food looked SO good! 



Quite a large table as well..


We don't really say grace in our family, we more so do a toast type thing. Being the newest doll, It was my turn to do a toast. I wasn't sure what to do, but I had a stroke of genius. I left the table really fast because I had to grab something. 


It was a red box with a fancy pattern. 


I opened it up to reveal a Chinese tea set. Momma got it for me soon after I moved here- she got in San Francisco- where I'm from! 


I made room and sat the tea down at the table. 


"There are only four glasses," I began, "Two of which, for Zoe and I, the 'newbies'. The other two glasses I would like to give to the dolls that help us all the most- Caroline and Kanani, because they do so much for us and I am so thankful." The teapot went around, and everyone filled their cup. 


"Um, I don't really know what to say, but I want to explain why I brought this teapot." I started my speech. 


"In my culture, a fancy tea set is always brought out on special occasions with family and friends. I wanted to bring something from my culture to share with my new family. Because it's special to me, and all of you are special to me as well. Uh, I think that's it." I sat down quickly, everyone clinked glasses and food was passed around. 

Happy Thanksgiving- may you have delicious food on your table and lovely people in your heart.
