Hello, lovely readers! While Mother shopped this afternoon, my sisters and I decorated our house for fall!
"I think that's all of it." Georgia said, setting down the last load.
"Yep!" Chrissa dusted off her hands.
"I think we should split up - one of us do the kitchen, and the other two work in here." I suggested.
"I call the kitchen!" Chrissa nearly yelled.
"Okay, Chrissa! You don't have to shout!" Georgia laughed. "Looks like you and I are working here, Elizabeth."
"See you people later." Chrissa said, grabbing the table cloth and decorations.
"Elizabeth - why don't you do the mantel, and I'll do sofa." my sister offered.
"That is fine with me."
Georgia tried a few different arrangements for the cushion (which I made) and blanket.
Meanwhile, I set up the mantel with dried leaves and little pumpkins.
A few minutes later, Georgia and I stepped back to admire our work. Suddenly, the phone rang.
"I'll get it!" Chrissa shouted.
I turned to Georgia. "Shall we go over and see how Chrissa is doing?"
"Sure!" she replied
"Hey Chrissa - who was on the phone?" Georgia asked.
"Oh, that was Mom. She was just letting us know that she'd be back from Target soon. And guess what she's bringing back?"
"Popcorn?" I suggested.
"Candy corn?" Georgia offered.
"You're right Georgia - it's candy corn!" Chrissa exclaimed excitedly.
"Nice job on the decor, Chrissa"
"If you two don't mind," I said, "I'm going to finish reading."
"Fine by me! Hey Georgia - do you want to play Island Hopper?" Chrissa asked.
"Sure, why not?"
They were just setting up the game as I went upstairs.
When Mother returned, she let each of us have ten candy corns. They were delicious!
What do you like best about fall?
