    Mom, Dad, can we invite my friend Lily and her dad and brother for Thanksgiving?

    Yeah, can we? Her brother Oliver is in my class.

    We have lots to be grateful for. If we can share, that’s another blessing.

    In that case, how about inviting Audrey and her mom?

    And Franco and his dad?

    On Thanksgiving Day the Cooper house is crowded but happy.

    Thanksgiving Day is in October in Canada. Do we have any family there?

    Why?

    ’Cause next year we could go to their house for Thanksgiving. If we did this twice a year, I’d be twice as thankful!
