My Birthday Party

Recently, I celebrated my tenth birthday on November 8th. My cousins, and grandparents came to my house to wish me a happy birthday. We celebrated my birthday in the evening when I came home from gymnastics. I was really glad to see my grandparents holding a huge chocolate cake, my favorite. I quickly showered and put on my warm pajamas. When everyone arrived at our home, my grandmother pulled my ears 11 times, an extra time for good luck, and I blew out the candles.

Getting my ears pulled

The next day, I invited my friend over to go ice skating with my family. We all drove to the rink, and wore thick pants, and a warm sweatshirt and jacket, so if we fell, it wouldn't hurt as bad. When we entered the ice rink, I got the chills, as it was very cold. We all quickly got our skates on and went onto the slippery ice. We adapted to the slippery ice instantaneously, and were soon skating very fast and playing games like tag. We finished our adventure unscathed with no injuries.  After skating for about 4 hours, we went out for dinner with my aunt and uncle. 

Here is a video of us skating on ice.

Do you have any funny birthday traditions?


  1. Dear Sarah,

    Happy birthday, girl! It looks like you had a fantastic time at the rink! What a nice skating rink. I went two years ago to the seasonal rink by Macys. It was fun to skate, but the rink was so small that you went around in a circle rather than an oval!

    Your mom must be a good skater if she can skate and film at the same time!

    When it is my birthday, Mr. Yollis always take me out to a fancy steak restaurant. It is exciting to get dressed up and have a special night out.

    Congratulations on the two digit number you've become! What is good about being ten?

    Your proud former teacher,
    Mrs. Y♥llis

    1. Dear Mrs. Yollis,

      Thank you so much for spending your time to leave me such a lovely comment. I appreciate all of the long and wonderful comments you always leave on my blog. I also went recently to the seasonal rink near the mall for a friends birthday party.It wasn't my favorite rink since the ice was like snow and the skates hurt my feet. While the indoor rinks are a lot colder, the ice skating is definitely better.

      I am the youngest in my class, and it is very nice not be the only one that's nine anymore!

      Your former student,

  2. Dear Sarah,
    We are glad you had a fun birthday. When your mom was your age she also had her birthday at ice skating place. You all look very happy. We wish you to have a wonderful year. Love, grandma Tanya and Grandpa Eugene

  3. Dear Tanya and Eugene,

    Thank you so much for spending your time to leave me such a lovely comment! I really enjoyed my birthday party, and really wished that you went ice skating with us. Do you know how to skate?

    Love you.
