Theme: Autumn

If you were any food, what would you be and why?

I would be cream cheese pumpkin roll, because dang those things are good!


What is your fondest autumn memory?

One of my favorite fall memories is from last year when we first moved to where we are now. It was (American) Halloween so we dressed up, and went out to dinner, 'cause why not? There were some other people dressed up, even though it isn't really Halloween over here on Oct. 31st, and it was a nice evening. Then on the way home, Joe (my 11 year old brother) saw a guy who had a "cool costume." He turned and whispered to mom, "Mom! I wish I spoke the language so I could tell that guy what a cool outfit he had on!" It was an Orthodox priest. U_U Let's just say, we were all happy he didn't speak more of the native language.

If you were any food, what would you be and why?

I would be mashed potatoes with gravy, because hey, it's the best food at thanksgiving.

If you were any food, what would you be and why?

I'd be a pomegranate. They're a very cultural and unique fruit: rather tart, a little nutty, but deep down they're as sweet as apple pie. <3

Ahaha, I have so many fun fall memories. Mostly involving dogs or food (two of the most reliable things on earth U_U). But I'd say that some of my best memories are with my youth group. Every year we go to a local corn maze. In the dark. Sometimes without flashlights. Last year we got especially lost, but it's so much fun. xDD And I got a really good whoopie pie out of the deal.

What is your fondest autumn memory?

We would always go out of town during Thanksgiving time and stay at this resort village. Where we live we rarely get snow, which made the thought of snow super exciting, but for some reason every year we went to this resort village, the forecast would tell us there would be absolutely no snow, and then we’d wake up the next morning with five inches of it. My little brother and I would run up to mom and say something along the lines of “Hah! You and the evil weather people were wrong!” Of course than there was all the great food and spending time with family, but proving the “evil weather people” wrong was just so much fun as a kid.

Lou Marguerite

What is your fondest autumn memory?

My fondest fall memories are the trips me and my family take every year to the pumpkin patch. We get hot coffee and pick pumpkins and eat ice cream. It's absolutely lovely, and I look forward to it every year.

Cordelia Anne Dewinter

Why did the mushroom go to the party?

Because he was a fungi.

Elliesse Psalm Karan

If you were any food, what would you be and why?

I'm not sure, maybe rice crispy treats? They are one of my favorite deserts.


What is your fondest autumn memory?

Thanksgiving has always been one of my favorite holidays. Where I used to live they don't celebrate it, so that always made it more fun! Our church would hold a Thanksgiving feast and invite the locals and everyone was encouraged to bring something to share. So we'd have this huge mix of cultural food: dishes like curry, sushi, and giyoza to the traditional Thanksgiving food that the locals don't normally eat. It was always new to both of us because you just have to try a bit of everything! It was also really special because in that country we were really far from our families so being able to go to church for it and hang out with others made it a lot more lively and fun.

Noelle Taylor

If you were any food, what would you be and why?

I would be maybe ice cream, because it's the bae and plus I'd need to stay cool B) ... but then I could melt. Maybe chocolate pudding, cookies, or cake with chocolate chips, because that's one of my faves. :D


What is your fondest autumn memory?

My culture is that my country is located on summer and thus there is no autumn here. Nor do I celebrate Thanksgiving because I'm not American.

Winter Gardner

If you were any food, what would you be and why?

I would be an apple pie because it is one of my favorite foods and is what I always request for my birthday. :D


What is your fondest autumn memory?

My fondest autumn memory was eating apple turnovers on Mao Er Mountain in China for my 14th b-day. We climbed this mountain with our teammates and two girls whom I was babysitting that day and then ate the apple turnovers when we reached the top. It was really fun. :D

Noah Morton

If you were any food, what would you be and why?

I would be turkey, the pinnacle of Thanksgiving. xD

Jane Doe

What is your fondest autumn memory?

My fondest autumn memory is from about 2 years ago. Where I live we can't get pumpkins. We also can't decorate for Thanksgiving very much. Christians here say that fall and Halloween are the Devil's. They always say we are bad to decorate for fall. (We still decorate for fall though. My dad always says Halloween is the only time people come to our houses for something. We need to use the chance to give them eternal life, not just candy. We always give out a track, verse, etc. with the candy.) Anyway, off track.... My favorite memory is when we were back in the States for fall. My mom, my sister, and I went to go pumpkin picking. We went on a hay ride and got off and picked the pumpkins. We also got to go out to a corn maze. It was one of my favorite memories.

Kiki Mills

Why didn't Anna and Elsa's parents teach them the whole alphabet?

Because they got lost at 'C.'

Adelaide York

If you were any food, what would you be and why?

I would be a chocolate chip cookie because then everyone would love me.


What is your fondest autumn memory?

Oh, I always loved raking the leaves in our back yard and jumping in them ^_^ Also, last year we drove from Virginia to NYC in November, and it was absolutely stunning with all of the leaves changing colors. Fall is definitely my favorite season. Unfortunately, leaves down here only go from green to brown, so we're kind of boring.

Felicia Gonzales

If you were any food, what would you be and why?

I would be a sweet potatoes casserole because it is one of my most absolute favorite foods during fall.


What is your fondest autumn memory?

My sisters and I were creating a movie, and we wanted to shoot a scene in the park. In the scene we were playing with the leaves. After we shot that scene, we buried by brother with the leaves. It is my favorite memory because that was the last autumn with my brother before he went to college.
