In the dining room:
“Hey, Bellamine I know Mom said she wanted to hang this  pretty pumpkin thingy  that Oma Linda sent us on the wall but see how  it matches  this basket and it goes with our decorating scheme which is all about pumpkins. Well I’m thinking since it’s even the same orange as the orange of the basket and it looks like it’s the same diameter as the top opening, I’m thinking it will make a great looking lid.”

“Do baskets even have lips, Wendy?”
“Lids Bellamine, not lips and yes, some baskets do have lids.”

“Would you look at that? It fits perfectly and I can almost guarantee that Mom is going to just l-o-v-e it!
Are you about finished hanging the pumpkins on the tree? I’m getting hungry.”

“Don’t rush me, I’m almost done. Wendy, how do the turkeys look here under the tree? Should I move them out or push them further back or leave them where they are? Come here and take a look and tell me what you think.”
“Where you have them is fine. Now, finish with the tree so we’re done here. I need F-O-O-D!"

“Okay, that’s the last of the pumpkins. Is it too much or not enough? Do we need anything else? I keep thinking we’re forgetting something.”

“We’re not forgetting anything Bellamine. Remember, we decided to downplay the decorations because the weekend after Thanksgiving we’re going to start decorating for Christmas.”
“Are you sure we’re not forgetting something?”
“Well, now that you mentioned it Bellamine, I think we forgot to have our afternoon snack of toasted muffin with peanut butter and honey but we can take care of that right now. Last one to the kitchen is a snail bear.”
“When we get done with our snack we can watch Brave again? I really do l-u-v that movie!”

Meanwhile in the park half a mile from here:

“It looks like we’re the only ones here. Where is everyone?” - Pugsley

“I told you we didn’t have to leave so early to get here but you wouldn’t listen.” - Wednesday

“Look, the O’Dell kids just turned the corner into the park.” – Agnes May

“Looks like Donner couldn’t get away from us fast enough.” -Dory

“Dory you know how much he likes to be around Wednesday. I think he’s crushing on her.”

“Where are Bellamine and Wendy? I thought they would get here first. It was Bellamine’s idea for us to meet here so we can all go out to Snow Ville together so we could meet their snow friends.” - Danni

“Don't you worry. They'll get here. If Bellamine says she’s going to do something she’ll do it.” - Dory

“Ahhhh…. guys, how long are we going to wait?”  - Danni

While back home:

“WOW! That was great! Okay, who wants to watch it again?”
“What’s going on in here?
                      Bellamine aren’t you forgetting something?” - Mom

“Noooo…..I don’t think so. What??? Why are you looking at me like that?”
“Weren't you going to meet your friends and you weren't you supposed to go together to Snow Ville so they could meet Crystal and Crispin? Well? I'm waiting for an answer young lady and your friends are down stairs waiting for an explanation.”
“This all happened yesterday and now we have to find a way to make it up to our friends. Mom said that if she didn’t know better she’d say we were both having a senior moment. All we can say in our defense is our heads are filled with stuffing. You’d better believe we’re not going to let something like this happen ever again.”
“Now we’re going to go visit our bear friends for Funny Friday.”

Wow, the pumpkin tree is bee-u-tee-ful, great job. I am still laughing about the pumpkin lips - little sisters, ya just gotta love 'em.

So you forgot about your friends, they'll get over it. Tell them you were busy makin' Christmas prezzies for them - that should do it!. If you need more help just let me know, okay?

Heaps of Hugs

Busy, busy bears. I love the lips comment...too funny. The pumpkins all look wonderful together. Great job decorating for Turkey Day.
Watching Brave is a perfectly understandable excuse for forgetting to meet your freinds. I adore that movie. Moms and daughters, arrows and will o wisps, what's not to love....oh and bears and witches.
The gathering of children is so delightful. Each one is more fun than the last. They all seem so happy to be hanging out together. So much fun in one blog post.
Now you bearlings give Momma a hug from Oma and have fun with your friends today.....Oma Linda

Hey Bellamine and Wendy! You are having soooooo much fun! It always makes me feel so happy when you share your adventures and tales .... almost as if I was there with you all!

Why not invite all your friends in to enjoy watching "Brave" with you? Another round of viewing "Brave" and I am sure they would forgive your forgetfulness!

Don't worry ... Be happy!

OK girl, I agree with Dilly Boy, ask all your friends over to watch the movie and make pop corn for them all. They will be forever friends then and forgive your senior moments..Ha Ha Ha... Your pumpkin tree looks fab.

Cute post, sis. I love how Agnes May seems to be settling in with her new family. I see you made her a new outfit!
Love your pumpkin tree, and all the decorations, including the two turkeys.
