You won’t believe what I did for my birthday. First when everyone came I opened my presents. Layla got me a necklace and Claire got me a beautiful dress. After that we went to lazer tag. It sounded like me screaming so loud. When we got in we watched a video because it was about how to play saying what not to do. My team came 4th. Then after the game we had a drink. Then we had one more game on the second game my team came 2nd. Then we went back to my house and then we had my cake it was a frozen one. It was so good that I ate three pieces. After that we played pass the parcel. Then we played musical statues. Then we played pie face that I got for my birthday. When my mum lit the candle it went out. When I did not even blow it out. When my mum dropped a glass it went CRASH. I said to my mum “You are the best mum in the world”. The cake had the hard icing that is what made it really nice and yummy. When everyone was gone I put on the necklace that Layla got me. I felt so lucky and amazing.
