Fiona is my neighbor. She turned twelve recently and her parents held a birthday
party for her. I was one of those invited.
The party began at about three in the afternoon. There were about twenty of
us children gathered in Fiona's house. We were all
dressed in our best clothes. Everyone, especially
Fiona, wore a happy smile.
We gave our presents to Fiona and she happily opened them. It must really be
exciting to receive all those presents.
After that Fiona's mother served us soft drinks and delicious
tidbits. We then played some games like
"Musical Chairs" and "Treasure Hunt". The winners were given prizes.
At about four-thirty Fiona's mother brought out the birthday cake. It was
beautifully decorated with pink and white icing. Twelve colorful candles sat in
the middle of the cake. We all sang "Happy Birthday" to Fiona after which she
blew out the candles and cut the cake. We clapped out hands eagerly.
We helped ourselves to slices of the delicious cake. Then we continued our
Finally at about six in the evening the party came to an end. We were all
tired but happy. The parents of the other children came to collect them. I
helped Fiona and her mother clean up the
mess we made. After that I walked home which was only two doors away.
