Brenda sat in the living room. Colored streamers, balloons, glitter, and photographs surrounded her. It was the morning after grandmothers eightieth birthday party. All she could think of was telling her friend Ernesto about it. She wished she could call him, but he had just moved out of town. So, Brenda decided to write him a letter.
Dear Ernesto,Grandmas birthday party was awesome! She loved the Big Band music. She said she felt young again. She and grandpa can still boogie-woogie. They even sang for us. They still know all the words! We had a wonderful time. You would have enjoyed it, too. I hope your new place is great!Your friend,Brenda
Grandmas PartyBrenda smiled. She placed her letter in an envelope. It was ready to be mailed. She knew Ernesto would write back quickly. She couldnt wait. Now, if only her mom or dad, or even her older sister, would just wake up.
