From the book…

Dad, Ruby, and I go to get the potatoes.
We also buy squash, corn, and tomatoes.
“And we can’t forget the chocolate pie!”
My sister and I together we cry.


Nana and then Papa get here first,
With my silly aunt that is a nurse!
We jump into their arms, where they hug us and kiss us!
They tell us we’ve grown and that they’ve missed us!


More aunts and uncles are the next to arrive,
With my three little cousins, all younger than five.
The baby is crying, and I think I am doomed,
When her two older sisters hurry up to my room!


By now, the house is filled with chatting, laughing people,
And the noise is so loud, it shouldn’t be legal!
But we all quiet down, like my growling tummy,
The moment we sit down to eat—oh, how yummy!
