By Beth Beutler
1 I was getting tired of winter. We had just been through another snow storm. At first, my sister, Rachel, and I liked to stay home from school. Now, we were getting bored. We were sitting on our beds and swinging our legs.
2 "What do you want to do?" I asked Rachel.
3 Rachel sighed. "I don't know."
4 "Girls, come down here, please," Mommy called from the bottom of the stairs.
5 "Yes, Mommy?"
6 "Did you know that March is National Noodle Month? I think it's time to have a party!"
7 Our faces lit up. A party to celebrate our favorite food...pasta! My family loves to have parties. We will find almost any reason to have one. National Noodle Month is as good a reason as any. I was beginning to feel better already.
8 She called Rachel and me to the table. "Let's plan the party!" she said.
9 "Oh, goodie!" we said at nearly the same time. We loved to help Mommy plan parties.
10 "Because March is National Noodle Month," Mommy stated, "we should probably have a party with pasta! What kind of pasta should we serve? "
11 "We HAVE to have macaroni and cheese," I said.
12 "Of course, Shelby," Mommy replied. "That's your favorite."
13 "Could we have spaghetti?" Rachel asked.
