During the Holidays...

Guess what happened during October? Well, don’t worry, because I’m going to tell you. On the very special day the 7th of October was my birthday. I didn't really want to celebrate it, but we still had a little birthday party with my parents, auntie, my two uncles and my two cousins. I got a few presents, and quite a lot of food and snacks. I didn't get many presents I only got 11, because I was turning 11 years old.


After my Dad got back from shopping, I saw that he bought a cake for me. I didn't see what it looked like, because it was in a plastic bag and I don’t think that my Dad wanted me to see my birthday cake yet. While Mum and one of my uncles were blowing some balloons up, I was opening my presents (I won’t tell what I got).


Later, my Mum and Dad were cooking some food (I also won’t tell what we were going to eat), but trust me it was delicious. I was running around to see what everyone was doing, because I was so excited! It was now the afternoon... My Dad decided to ring my other uncle, auntie and two cousins to come over and celebrate my birthday as well. We left out some snacks for them to munch on, while my Mum and Dad cooked the actual food.


Next, my cousins and I went to my room to play, by that I mean jump all over the bed, mess it up and then make it all tidy again, so we could all watch Adventure Time! Moments later, we were called to come and eat. After that, we got out my birthday cake. It was a chocolate cake covered in coffee flavoured icing and it said “Happy Birthday Shannon” with pink icing on top of my cake, there was dots of icing around the cake too. It was stunning! My mum lit the candle, (the candle also plays the birthday song). I used the knife to cut my cake, it looked great.


Everyone got a piece of cake to feed me. While they were taking photos, it was kinda weird and awkward when they had to leave the spoon and cake in my mouth, for the photo. The cake tasted better than I thought it would. We dished our food out and sat down to eat. On Friday we were going to Taupo then to Rotorua after that. I’m now 11 years old and felt more mature and special.

Hi Shannon, I'm glad that you had a nice birthday celebration with your family. I'm sorry that it wasn't a school day so that we could sing you a happy birthday too! 11 years old - how wonderful!
