Hi! I had my family birthday party on April 5th. For dinner we had pasta with white sauce, peas, ham, and mushrooms. We also had my favorite salad, mandarin orange salad. After my whole family was done with dinner, they chatted a little bit. Then I opened my presents! I got a lot of summer clothes that were so cute and stylish. My favorite present was my second ear piercings! I got other presents but I’m sure you don’t want to hear them all. After I was done opening my presents my family sang Happy Birthday to me and I blew out the candles. Actually it took me a couple tries to blow out the candles because they were trick candles, but don’t tell anyone it took me more than 1 try. After I blew out my candles we ate chocolate cupcakes that my mom and I made. Once everyone was gone I had some time to just do my own thing and have fun. I had a great 12th birthday!
