If I had the choice of inviting one person to a Thanksgiving dinner I would definitely chose my best friend Tristyn. I choose Tristyn because he is awesome. In addition, if you start talking to him about homework, the conversation would end up being about a gangster unicorn that shoots zombies for a living or something about Mirror's Edge. I would most likely want to talk to him about Mirror's Edge which is a very cool game. Since we both play it we know a lot about it and the conversation can go on forever.

If I had to eat with one person, it would be our new mayor, Bill deblasio. I would eat with him because I did a report on him and he is Italian, like me (exept I'm part Italian). I would talk to Bill deblasio about many things. One of the most important things I would talk to him about is what he plans to do to help New York City. Another thing that I would talk about with Bill deblasio would be his strong arguments about stop and frisk.
So in conclusion, this is who I would eat thanksgiving dinner with.

HAPPY THANKSGIVING!

Nobody is coming for dinner. It is only my mom,dad,and my 2 sisters. This is because everyone else in my family doesnt want to waste so much money for so much food,bevarges,and etc.So we decided to do it by ourselves. What we are planning to do is watch 4 movies during the night, then we are going to take our time eating, and do all kinds of fun stuff!!! So Happy Thanksgiving!!!!!

Rosellyn T. said...

If I had to eat with one person it would be Janaya. I would chose her because first shes my BFF. And it will be fun to hang out with her on Thanksgiving.What me and Janaya would talk about firat what we thankful for. Then will talk about our future.And then will talk about memories. HAPPY THANKSGIVING!!! :)

RisellyT said...

If I were to pick who to come to my family Thanksgiving, I would pick nobody. This is because its suppose to be a FAMILY DINNER! Also it would be awkward eating with your family with your friend siting beside you, and you have nothing to say. If I would have a friend it would be my neighbor because it is also my mom,dad,and my 2 sisters neighbor, so it wouldnt be awkward.Happy Thanksgiving!!!

Ido S. said...

If I had a choise, I would pick my best friend Tomer from Israel. I would choose Tomer because he was my best friend but then I moved to New York and because of school and the time diffrence I dont have the chanse to talk with him. I would talk with Tomer about what is new in my old neighborhood and school. I would talk with him about my other friends too.

George T said...

If I had to invite one person it is be my cousin,Robert. I would chose him because he is my favorite person in the world and he would keep my mind off something depressing wich I chosse not to say. I will talk to him today about the Civil War, Suppervolcanos,video games,and who he thinks will win for the game today!

Ethan B. said...

the people that I would choose to have thanksgiving with is my whole family even my pet! I would choose my family because I like spending time with them. And Ive never seen them in a year. I would talk to them
about "oh how is it in Colorado and Texas or Minnesota"? etc.

Izel R. said...

If I had to chose to eat with one person, it would have to be Abraham Lincoln. I would want to eat with him because I want to know a little bit more about how he thought of slavery. Also, because I want to know how he managed the Civil War era. I would ask him how the Civil War changed his life. Another thing we would talk about is what he did during presidency. This is who I would eat Thanksgiving dinner with.

Kai S. said...

If I could choose one person to eat a Thanksgiving dinner with, it would be Kim Yuna (the 2010 Winter Olympic gold medalist for Ladies Figure skating). I would choose her because one, she inspired me to skate, two, she is the best woman figure skater in the world (literally), three she is the first South Korean woman to win the Olympic gold medal for Ladies Figure skating, and since I am half South Korean I would like to see how that felt to her. I would talk to Kim Yuna about multiple things. Most of the subjects I would talk about with her would be skating. First I would ask her how it felt to win the gold medal. Did she feel proud? Overjoyed? Then I would ask her how she rose to fame. When did she start competing? She had a lot of pressure on her at the Olympics. Was she scared at the, or was she perfectly at ease? Last, I would ask her about her family and how her younger skating career was.

Happy Thanksgiving everyone!!!

Jessica M. said...

If I had to choose one person to have Thanksgiving dinner with, it will be my Grandma. I will choose my Grandma to have Thanksgiving dinner with because, I have not seen her in a long time and she is very special to me. At dinner my Grandma and I will talk about the things that happened while we we not together, the fun times we had in the past and our future plans.

Finn A. said...

If I were to invite one person to my thanksgiving dinner I would invite Rafael Nadal the famous number one tennis player because I love to play tennis and I'm a huge fan of Nadal. At dinner I would ask him how did he become such a great tennis player? Also what should I do to get better at tennis because I want to become a professional tennis player when I grow up.I wish him a happy thanksgiving!

HazelB said...

If I had to choose one person it would be my good friend Chad. Chad is a movie maker, he has made 3 movies. I would like to talk about the work you go though to make that movie spot on! I would want to pick Chad because it is hard for him to make you bored.

ThaisMC said...

The person I would share dinner with is Gabby Dougols because she love gymnastics and so do I. Gabby has also won the gold metals in the Olympic.I just think is cool to sit down and have diner with her ,and maybe she will teach me some tricks.

Carter K. said...

I know that it's a little harsh, but I'd be happy to eat a Thanksgiving dinner with anyone except my 6-year old cousin, Siena. Unfortunately, I had to eat my Thanksgiving dinner with her, along with the relatives on my dad's side. My cousin insisted on sitting next to me (She nearly cried about it), she only ate the marshmallows on the marshmallows and sweet potatoes. She didn't put any gravy on her turkey (:O), and would not stop talking. Wait, she did stop talking and started crying when I mentioned homeless people.

Not the best person to eat with, eh?

Matilda M. said...

If I were to invite someone to Thanksgiving dinner it would be either Emma Roberts, (I stole Willa's idea.) who plays Hermione Granger, or Alan Rickman, who plays Severous Snape. Both actors are from Harry Potter movies. I picked them because I LOVE Harry Potter. I would talk to both about how the Harry Potter movies were made, what they did on the sets, how did they make the special effects in the movies, and if they still keep in touch with the other actors in the Harry Potter movies like Rupert Grint, Tom Felton, Ralph Fiennes, and more. That Thanksgiving would have been the best Thanksgiving ever!

Lauren.B said...

If i could have Thanksgiving with anybody, it would be Jennifer Lawrence from the Hunger Games. She is from one of my favorite books and plus is super funny! We would talk about, was it fun on a set in Hawaii, the awesome costumes, and if they are making the third movie, Mockingjay. I would really like to know about her fire costume in the movie. If this happened it would be the best Thanksgiving!

Christopher V. said...

If I could invite anyone to thanks giving dinner it would be my cousin kyle. I would pick him because he is my favorite cousin and I never hang out with him. Another reason is because he is going off to collage this year which keeps him busy with applications
to fill out or he is with his friends. Also when I visit him we have to leave since it takes so long to get their. This is who I would have thanks giving with so i can HAVE time to spend with.

Madelene G. said...


If I were to invite someone to a Thanksgiving dinner, it would be the famous singer Amy Whine house. I would pick the perticular person because I'm am such a fan of all her music, for example one of her songs were called "Rehab". Also she does have a long life story of who she was and how she became a singer and to sit down and actually talk to her about it, that would be the most coolest moment of my life. So that's the was the one person who I would invite to a Thanksgiving dinner.

Happy Thanksgiving :)

Jakub S. said...

I would want to eat with Neymar. I would choose Neymar because he is my favorite soccer player, and he is really good. I would want to ask him if he had to practice a lot to be the good player he is. Also, I would ask him if it is hard to be a soccer player in the Spanish league, and playing in it. The last thing I would ask him is if he doesn't miss Brazil , because that is where he was born. That is who I'd choose to eat with.

BenW. said...

I would probably invite Patrick because he is really nice. I had him over for dinner once, and mom said he had excellent table manners. He is also one of my best friends, so having him over would be awesome! We would probably start talking about minecraft, but it would probably end up in "what movie are we watching?'' I would probably invite his parents over, because they are nice too. if I could, I would invite ALL my friends and their families. I really had to struggle to pick one of my friends to "invite'' to Thanksgiving dinner.

Griffin C said...

If I had to choose one person in the whole world to invite to a Thanksgiving feast, I would invite my brother because he is always nice to me, one time he gave me a bracelet. His name is Reeve. I would like to talk about how we are thankful to have each other.

Owen C. said...

If I could invite anybody over for Thanksgiving dinner, I would invite David Wright. I would choose David Wright because he is on my favorite baseball team, the New York Mets. He is also my favorite baseball player. We would talk about how the Mets are doing. We would also talk about what the Mets could do to get better. I would also ask him some questions about how he became a baseball player. First of all, I would ask him what positions he played growing up. Also, I would ask him what he did to become a major league baseball player and what he reccomended to somebody who wanted to play in the major leagues.

Happy Thanksgiving!

I should help my mom by putting the dishes on the table and help to make the turkey.

Preheat oven to 325° F. Drain juices and pat dry with clean paper towels\
Place turkey breast side up on a flat rack in a shallow roasting pan 2 to 2½ inches deep.
Turn the wings back to hold the neck skin in place. (Tucking the wings will help stabilize the turkey in the pan and when carving) Brush or spray skin lightly with vegetable or cooking oil for best appearance.
Insert an oven-safe meat thermometer deep into the lower part of the thigh without touching the bone. When the thigh is up to temperature, and if the turkey is stuffed, move the thermometer to the center of the stuffing.
Place Turkey in the oven
When the turkey is about 2/3 done, loosely cover breast and top of drumsticks with a piece of foil to prevent overcooking.
Your turkey is done when temperature is 180° F in thigh and 165° F in breast or stuffing.
Lift turkey onto platter and let stand for 15 minutes before carving.

Jake B. said...

If I had a choice of bringing one person, well my family will be automatically be on the list because they'll with me forever. Well I'll bring my cousin Justin because I always go to his house for thanksgiving and he is awesome! Another reason is I love to play football when thanksgiving time comes and he's pretty good at football. We could also do a parents kids football game. I could also see what it's like living where he lives and having an older sister. In conclusion Justin will be an awesome kid to have thanksgiving with!

Julian S. said...

If I had to choose only one person to have thanksgiving dinner with I would choose my dad. I would choose him because I am thankful to have him, he is also nice and fun to talk with. I would talk to him about what I am thankful for as well as try to make him laugh. This is why I would choose my dad to have thanksgiving dinner with if I could only choose one person.

Jack S. said...

If I would be able to eat with anyone on Thanksgiving I would eat with John Dimaggio (the person who does the voice of Jake from Adventure Time). I would eat with him because I like Adventure Time a lot and Jake is my favorite character on the show. I would talk to him about a bunch of things. One thing I would ask him is "Why did you want to become an actor?". I would also ask him who he likes better, Bender or Jake? (He also played Bender on the show Futurama. Personally I like Jake better. I actually don't watch Futurama a lot.) I would ask him if he likes going to ComicCon. (I went there this year and I got an autographed comic book from him and one from the actor who plays Finn). I would also ask him what being an actor is like, if it's hard, what you have to do, and if he enjoys working with the cast of Adventure Time. I would also ask him if he minds fans always trying to talk to him and get autographs. Also I would ask him what his favorite character from Adventure Time is besides Jake. In conclusion, I would have Thanksgiving dinner with John DiMaggio.

Graeme L.M. said...

If I could invite person to Thanksgiving dinner it would would be J.K. Rowling. I would choose J.K Rowling because, well she's the author of Harry Potter and she's awesome!!!!!!!!! (And by the way Matilda speaking of Harry Potter, its Emma Watson who plays Hermione not Emma Roberts) Going back to the topic, I also love Harry Potter and it would just be an excuse to talk Harry Potter all through dinner. We would talk about how she came up with the characters and who is her favorite character is that would be a cool thing to know. That would be a cool Thanksgiving.

Leandro G said...

If I could choose one person to have Thanksgiving dinner with, it would be Abraham Lincoln. I would choose him because one, he helped end slavery. Two, I am fascinated with him. Lastly, he inspired me to help others. Him and I would talk all about The Civil War. We would talk about the Emancipation Proclamation, The Fugitive Slave Act, and the whole secession of the South. This is why I would invite Abraham Lincoln to Thanksgiving dinner.

Happy Thanksgiving!

Madeline M. said...

If I could invite one person to Thanksgiving it would be my grandma, Diana. I would invite her because I don't get to see her a lot since she lives far away. We would talk about what we are going to do for Easter when I come up to visit. We would also go to the MoMath (a math museum). It would be great if my grandma could come to Thanksgiving.

TimothyM said...

If I had to have a Thanksgiving dinner I would invite my parents and my siblings. I would talk to my siblings about school now and getting into middle school and I would talk to my parents about anything new that I didn't already tell them about during the week.

Happy Belated Thanksgiving!

MykaW said...

If I had to pick a person to invite to Thanksgiving I would pick Henery Burgh. I would pick him because to me he is my role model for the civil war/ slavery ara. I would also pick him because I have a lot of things we have in common. We would talk about dogs. We would talk abot what people told you that this is not a good idea and why is it not a good idea.

Amelia O. said...

If I had to chose one person to invite to Thanksgiving dinner other than my family it would be Mr. Joe the old art teacher. I would choose him because he is one of my favorite teachers. Also, I never ever see him since he moved to Maine and the one day he came to visit I was absent! If I could have Thanksgiving dinner with Mr. Joe I would most likely want to do an art project with him.

Ian SG said...

If I'd have to invite someone to dinner other than all of my family, which is too big to count, I'd invite my good friend Nyk. Or Nyklos, if you want to be formal. He's Kind of apart of my family, not by blood but by friendship. He'd be the one who'd be covering his head in shame by the looks of my family roaring in laughter and dancing in living room, but inside he'd be laughing too.(This really sappy isn't it.). Some how, our conversation would lead to something about a war between the new Next Gen consoles (PS4 Vs Xbox One), and how their characters will come out and try to take over the world while Humans hide in rainicorn land.
Rock on Nyk, and Happy Thanksgiving to you all, (gobble, gobble, gobble?)

Oliver P said...

The person I would have Thanksgiving with is my best
friends and family for example my friend Drew and Ayva Marvin, Leandro, Ben, Patrick, Max, Ethan. But mostly Drew because I knew him since I was just 1 years old. Im in a band with him we have so much in common running, video games, wrestling, etc. Those are the reasons I would have Thanksgiving With Drew.

Caleb W said...

If I could choose one person to have Thanksgiving diner with I would invite friends from when I lived in Romania. I would pick them because I haven't seen them in a while. I talk about how they are doing in Romania a how things are going here. I miss my friends and it would be very fun to talk to them.

Happy Thanksgiving!

DeclanM said...

If I could invite one person to my Thanksgiving dinner I would invite my best friend Elais. I choose him because I have a lot of things to catch up with him on. what we would talk about some funny story's and things like that.

Owen T. said...

I can not choose who I would want to invite to Thanksgiving. It would either be Nyklos, Mickey, or Maxwell. These have good reasons. Nyklos and Mickey because I can talk to them about almost anything, and Maxwell because I can talk to him about football

Nyklos W said...

If I had to choose someone to eat with it would be Either Oscar C my good friend Owen T or Mickey. The reason I would choose Oscar is because we've been friends since 1st grade and he lives in new jersey so it would be great to see him. The reason I would invite Mickey or Owen is because I could talk to them about a lot of things like games or sports.

Jalen W said...



If I would invite a person to thanksgiving it would be Blake Griffin because he is my favorite basketball player.I would like to see him because he can teach me alot in basketball. For a example the rules of basketball fouls,traveling, the shot clock,shoot,dribbling,rebounding,
free throws and stealing.We would talk about basketball and what mama is cooking in the kitchen.

AminE said...

If I had to one person to eat with I would eat with my sister.
I would choose my sister to eat with my sister because she is always nice to me and anything I want her to build me out of cardboard.
I would talk with my sister about 2 things. The first thing I would talk to my sister about is the next thing she would build me. The second thing I would talk to my sister about is what I am thankful for.

CarmenS said...

If I were to invite anyone living to a Thanksgiving dinner, I would invite Vicky Holmes. She is the author of my favorite series of books (well, ONE of my favorite series) -- "Warriors."

Since it was Thanksgiving, I'd say Thank You for all the books she has written. I would also ask her to sign all of her books that I own.

I would ask her what other books she is planning to write and when she will be on tour. And that's it!

Brisa.K said...

If I was to pick one person to eat with I would pick one of friends from camp, Rose. I would pick her because we only see each other once a year so it would be nice to talk to her a little more. We would probably talk about camp and all the adventures we had and games we played and how we really want to go again next year.

Hershel G said...

If I had to choose 1 person to eat dinner with I would choose my friend Milo. I would choose him because he has about the exact same interests as me. We would probably talk about flying rainbow unicorns made out of mustaches. But we would also talk about what we're thankful for.

AjaxH said...

If I had to eat Thanksgiving dinner with anybody, it would be Carmelo Anthony. I would pick him because he is my favorite basketball player. I would talk to him about what's wrong with the Knicks this season. Then I would ask him who his top ten greatest players are. Then I would ask him if he could give some pointers on offense, because he in my opinion is the best offensive player in the NBA. Finally, I would ask him to sign my Carmelo Anthony jersey.

Willa M. said...

If I were to invite someone to a Thanksgiving dinner, like Matilda, I would invite Emma Watson (not Emma Roberts, Matilda made a small mistake!). I would invite Emma Watson to dinner because she is the actress of my favorite book and movie character, Hermione Granger, who also happens to be Harry Potter's lady-friend (not girlfriend, they are not and never will be in love). At dinner, we would talk about what it's like to be a celebrity, what it's like to be in a movie, and the down-sides of being a celebrity. We might also talk about my life, too, but I don't know the specifics on that. I think if that does happen, it would be one of the best Thanksgivings ever!

Max T. said...

The person I would eat thanksgiving dinner with would be Lionel Messi. Despite the fact that he doesn't speak English, he's still my favorite soccer player. It would be fun to talk about being a soccer player and the upsides and downsides of it. Even though it will never happen, it would still be fun!

NoraH said...

The person that I would invite to my thanksgiving dinner would be my cousin 11 year old Sam. I would pick him because I do not get to see him a lot and it would be really fun to have dinner together. We would talk about my other cousins and what we were going to do the next day or what we did already.

JusticeC. said...

I really enjoy eating with my grandma. She who I would select to eat with. I chose my grandma because I love spending time with her. She doesn't make a big fuss out of things. What I would like to talk about with my grandma is art. How she can help me increase my art skills. I would talk about her life as a kid too. My grandma would be a great person to eat with.

Erik V said...

If I were to choose a person I would choose Guy Fieri. I would choose him because he drives his 1967 vintage Camaro to every restaurant. If he came over to my house I hope my house won't shake because that 67 is loud. If he came over I would ask him for a ride. That car can make a sidewalk crack. This is why I would choose Guy Fieri. By the way he really knows how to cook.
Happy Thanksgiving everybody

PatrickD said...

well I would invite my friend Nora because well she is my friend and we would talk about middle school and what we usually do for thanksgiving and the lunch release and other stuff.

Clem A. said...

If I could eat dinner with anyone, it would be Matt Smith. He is a famous actor who plays the 11th doctor in my favorite TV show, Doctor Who. Doctor Whois a really awesome show about a guy called the doctor who travels in time with a blue police box that's bigger on the inside. I would eat dinner with Matt Smith because he plays my favorite character in my favorite TV show. I would talk to him about Doctor Who.

Marvin H. said...

Marvin H.
If I could invite anybody in the world to my Thanksgiving dinner I would choose Ronaldinho. Ronaldinho is one of my favorite soccer players in the world and I look up to him wishing I could be like him one day, I google videos of him to look at the tricks he does and the plays he makes and I practice them over and over and he seems really cool to hang out with and he always has a smile on his face. If I had Ronaldinho over for Thanksgiving I would want to talk about how awesome it was to be one of the best soccer players in the world, and what's the down side of being a soccer player? What it is like to be in a soccer game, and what his favorite position was. Some other questions I would ask are: "Where does your mind go when you have the ball at your feet and you are trying out a new move? What does it feel like to score a goal in a real game? What does it feel like to get a soccer trophy and what does it feel like to have all these kids looking up at you like a roll model?" and last but not least: "Can you show me some of your moves?" If all of this did happen for Thanksgiving I would have one of the best Thanksgivings ever!

Thomas G. said...

If I were to invite one person to thanksgiving it would be my favorite writer Rick Riordan. I would thank him for writing all my favorite series: The Olympians, Percy Jackson, Demigod Diaries, etc. It would be a very special Thanksgiving for me.

Lucy M. said...

If I could invite any living person to my Thanksgiving dinner, I think I would choose the president of the United States, Barack Obama. I would choose him because he seems like an interesting man to talk to, and I'm sure that with him, there's so much to talk about. Also, I mean, he's the president. What can I say?

Lucia F. said...

I would invite my Nonna. She is funny and caring and does interesting things. I don't get to see her a lot. We would talk about how middle school tours are going and we'd probably talk about funny stories from when I was little.

jakob l. said...

If I had to choose someone to have thanksgiving with it would be Bruce Lee. I take karate so to me he's a legend and someone to look up to. I would ask him why he became a martial artist, why he created his own style, and how many times a day he practiced? I would also ask him if he ever had to use his self defenses on the street. I like Bruce Lee so much that I hurt my ankle trying one of his moves but I practiced the move till I got it right. If I had thanks giving with Bruce Lee, it would be the best day of my life!!!

Elias L. said...

If I had to invite one person to my thanksgiving it would be my very amazing friend Declan. I choose Declan because we have a huge lot of things to catch up with. (like Declan said). We could talk about the many things we would like to be true. (mostly childish dreams. There's nothing wrong with them!) Also we would both experience the majesticness of rabbit. (yes, I didn't have a turkey but rabbit is just as tasty). But also I cant resist the urge to say that I would also invite my faraway friend jacob which moved to Chicago. :,( . Jacob and I would also have had a very good thanksgiving a well talking about pillow land and programming and coding. ( Java Script is a lot better than normal Java!!!)
I say hello and a nice thanksgiving to everyone! (even though it has already passed).

Issandro T said...

I would invite Harriet Beecher Stowe to Thanksgiving.I would invite her because I learned a lot about her and she is amazing. She wrote more than 30 books and she was a teacher. I would talk to her about her life, her experiences writing books and tips on life.

Lindsay L. P. said...

If I were to invite someone to Thanksgiving dinner it would be Beyonce Knowels Carter. Beyonce is a singer, songwriter, and actress, and I am too. I think that it would be amazing to sit down and have dinner with her. If this was to happen she and I would sing our songs together, and be in harmony. She could also give me some pointers. That Thanksgiving would be the best Thanksgiving ever!

Ayva H. said...

if i got a choice on who to eat with, i would probaly choose Adle because i want to be a singer when i grow up,, too. me and Adle would be talking about music.

HAPPY THANKSGIVING!!!!!!!!

Mariel FR said...

I would invite Tim Burton to my Thanksgiving dinner because he's a weird, crazy, random guy, and he shines an odd light on Christmas, so I wonder how he celebrates thanksgiving. Tim Burton is an amazing film maker and I LOVE his films. I want to be a film maker one day myself, so we would talk about what advice he would give me. I would also ask him to make a film that's Thanksgiving themed, like The Nightmare Before Christmas. It would be weird and freaky, with people eating a live turkey, or something like that. I would LOVE that!

Steven Z said...

On my thanksgiving I had almost all my family come over to my house. While our rest of the family came over, the turkey was in the oven waiting to de finisheb up. My uncle came, my dad, my mom, my babybrother, my sister, my aunt and my aunt's husban. While everyone was eating I asked my uncle sbout his work and my aunt about her little biussness. At last I asked my dad about his work and he is going so good that he is the worker of themonth. COOL right, he won a 500 dallar gift card. In my family I really admire
is my father because he is very workful and evn if he is sick he geos only if the sickness beats his body. He is very nice even when he is so tierd he understands me



TavB said...

If I had to pick somebody, I would pick Adam Sandler
because he is funny and a good actor. And hey, who doesn’t want a funny guy at a Thanksgiving dinner? I also picked him because I want to learn about how he got into comedy. I have seen almost all of his movies! I hope everyone had a great Thanksgiving.

Jack W. said...

I would invite my best friend, Joseph Barnes. I would do this because I have not seen him since Hurricane Sandy hit and his Grandparent's beach home was destroyed. I have known Joseph since we were 2 years old during our summers in Seaside Park, NJ. Since then we have spent every summer together and became best friends, even though he lives in Yonkers and I live in Brooklyn. I miss him a lot since I haven't seen him in over a year. We would talk about what had happened in the past year, what video games we like, the good food that would be set before us and possibly meeting up next summer in Seaside Park! Joseph would be the perfect person to invite for me and I wish him a happy Thanksgiving!

Zora M. said...

I would invite Sasha Obama to my Thanksgiving dinner, because she is the President’s daughter and she is close to my age. I think it would be fun to eat with her and talk to her. I would talk to her about her dog Bo and I would ask her if she discovered the secret passage way they say is in the White House. That is why I would invite Sasha Obama to my Thanksgiving dinner.

Shane S said...

I would invite President Obama, because it would be really awesome to have the president over to dinner. I would love to talk to him so I could ask him questions about being the president. I would ask him if he gets stressed out about his job, or if he is scared to make big decisions.

CamarD said...

Amaya G.M. said...

I would choose to eat with one of my favorite book characters, Kiki Strike. I would choose to eat with her because I would love to discuss the Shadow City. I would talk about her adventures with her. I would talk about the time she found the Shadow City and the founding of the Irregulars. I would also like to talk with Kiki about her adventures in Paris and how she found the Darkness Dwellers.

EthanV said...

For Thanksgiving, if I only could eat with one person, I would choose, my brother Gregor. Why him? I have lived for 10 years we have fun together and would make a good feast because we both love to cook and eat.
During dinner we would talk about games, Christmas, and what to get each other. We would add to our Christmas lists and hope to get everything. Also, we would say what we are thankful for like, a home, family, food, clean water and fun times.

The person I would choose to eat with is my grandparents.
I would like them to come over for Thanksgiving because my grandma bakes the best turkey ever. She also makes the best stuffing, mashed potato, and cranberry sauce.
My grandpa is a pretty funny guy. He teaches me all these old expressions. His laugh is also really funny. It lasts so long.
One thing I would like to talk about with my grandma is how she makes the turkey, and the stuffing. Another thing I would talk with my grandma is all of her jobs. I only know that she was a teacher.
One thing I would like to talk about with my grandpa is talking about jokes and what they mean so I could get them. I would share some of his jokes with my friends. Another thing I would like to talk about with my grandpa is how he was trained in the army. But thankfully never went and actually fought in a war. He also used to drive a tank. He used to be so strong that he could do chin-ups with just his middle fingers!
Happy late Thanksgiving Mr. Casal!

If I had to invite one person to Thanksgiving dinner, it would be my friend Jaheim. I would invite him because I am very good friends with him. Also I would invite him because he invited me to his house but I could not come over because he had a problem with his roof. The last reason is he has invited me to his house over the last couple of years, and I have never invited him to my apartment. This is who I would invite to Thanksgiving dinner.

For thanksgiving if I could eat with any living person at all it would most likely be the writer of the hunger games Suzzane Collins because I'd like to hear what inspired her to create such a story and what she believes a thesis statement or theme of each book in the trilogy may be .

My thanksgiving was wonderful because I was with my family. I sat next to my brother not because it was a choose but because we were at the kids table and he happened to be next to me. I did not talk to him about anything because we watch Disney and a football game. we mostly fought about what to watch on the television while the adults did most of the talking.

If I can invite any one for my thanksgiving dinner it would be my mom. It would be my mom because I don't see her a lot. I only saw her four times this school year one time it was 30 min. At least the other time was an hour and a half. My mom is also a lot of fun. She even makes chocolate chip cookies!!!!!!!

HAPPY THANKSGIVING!!!!!!!!!
