Finally, the Big Banquet! I felt a little hesitant about meeting someone as famous and as beautiful as Evangeline. But it turned out that she likes little girls so that was ok after all. Here's me pretending to be famous and beautiful just like her.
In addition to feeling shy and kinda little, I really didn't want to leave Autumn behind. She is too little to be on her own! Grammie C said that Autumn could nap in her purse, but I knew that being in the dark jumbled in with things would have been very scary to me when I was that age. We couldnt agree on a good solution, so we carried her down to the banquet hall arguing all the way. And you know...that NEVER happens with Grammie C.
As soon as we saw our favor, I knew just what to do though....so the shoes went in Grammie C's bag, and I tucked Autumn up in the wee hat box where she could listen but still be close to me. She fell right off to sleep even before the banquet started. Aren't I a smarty?
