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.
"What do you want to do?" I asked Rachel.
Rachel sighed. "I don't know."
"Girls, come down here, please," Mommy called from the bottom of the stairs.
"Did you know that March is National Noodle Month? I think it's time to have a party!"
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.
She called Rachel and me to the table. "Let's plan the party!" she said.
"Oh, goodie!" we said at nearly the same time. We loved to help Mommy plan parties.
"Because March is National Noodle Month," Mommy stated, "we should probably have a party with pasta! What kind of pasta should we serve? "
"We HAVE to have macaroni and cheese," I said.
"Of course, Shelby," Mommy replied. "That's your favorite."
"Could we have spaghetti?" Rachel asked.
