"My Birthday Surprise"
was created especially for
Miki F Maya
I love Miki It is a nice lady
Mommy and Daddy
Miki Maya was so excited!
Her "big" day had finally arrived!
She had reminded everyone in Nerimaku
about her birthday on Janary 31,
for a long time. Miki had not
wanted a single person to forget
this special day. Today she was 6.
For months now, Miki had been
dreaming day and night about her
party. She had asked her friends
again and again, "Do you suppose my
birthday will ever get here?" There
were many names on her invitation
list. Miki hoped Mire,Mai and Makoto
could come. She was really
looking forward to a great time!
It seemed to Miki that her
dreams always started out the same
way. She would be sitting in the
middle of an enormous room all
dressed up for her party. Beside
her was a key ring with 10 magic
keys, each a different color.
Around her would be doors, and
Miki knew that the keys were
there to open those matching,
In each dream, Miki would find
many happy, wonderful surprises
behind the locked doors... except
for one. There were 11 doors, but
only 10 keys. Miki wondered how
she would get into that last room.
There wasn't even a knob on the
door. Every time she would start to
search for the missing key, she
would wake up. Oh well! Maybe
Mire,Mai and Makoto could help her.
In her dreams, Miki liked to
start with the blue key that
unlocked the blue door. The blue
room looked as if it held a billion
bouncing balloons. There were
balloons of different shapes, colors
and sizes, and Miki had fun
walking through them. There was one
balloon that had to be the biggest,
bluest balloon she had ever seen.
This was so much fun, Miki raced
on to the next door !
The second door opened up to a white
room with lots and lots of birthday
cakes. There were tiny cakes and
gigantic cakes and cakes just big
enough for Miki to eat all by
herself. Some cakes were huge, but
there was one snowy white cake
behind the white door that had 7
huge layers. It was a cake for
Miki. She wanted to show all
these beautiful cakes to Mire,Mai and Makoto.
When Miki opened the cherry red
door, she almost fell backward!
What a fun dream! In front of her
was a monstrous mountain of melting
ice cream. There were cherries,
nuts, whipped cream and syrup
running down the sides. Miki
thought it would be so much fun to
slide down this kind of mountain.
What a delightful, delicious time
she would have !
Miki giggled when she opened the
orange door to the clown room.
Inside she found forty funny clowns,
most of them with bright orange
hair. There were fat clowns and
thin clowns, short clowns and tall
clowns, happy clowns and sad clowns.
Some clowns did tricks while other
silly clowns just clowned around. In
this orange room, Miki aughed
until she could laugh no more.
The green room had so many presents
that Miki had trouble opening
the door. She wondered if any of
the gifts were from Mire,Mai and Makoto.
She was hoping that one of those boxes
would have something very nice she
could play with on her birthday.
Maybe it was the gigantic green
gift box! Should she open it? No,
she must hurry to the next door.
Miki jumped up and down when she
opened the glittering gold door and
found a golden room full of rides
for her birthday party. In the
middle of the room was a beautiful
gold merry-go-round. Surrounding
it, Miki could see the ponies
with their golden saddles, a train
ride and even a small ferris wheel !
A pink door opened up into a candy
room. Miki was amazed at all the
candy. She found suckers, gumdrops,
lollipops, peppermint sticks, hard
candies, soft candies and all kinds of
chocolate candies. There was also the
biggest, bubbliest bunch of pink bubble
gum that she had ever seen. Miki
knew that she would have to share this
candy with Mire,Mai and Makoto or she would
have a big tummyache.
Behind the brown door were many,
many huggable animals. Miki
wanted to hold and squeeze the soft,
cuddly brown teddy bears, as well as
the cats, dogs, monkeys and
dinosaurs. Some of the other
animals, like the giraffe, were
taller than Miki. Others were so
small they would fit in her hand.
If she put all these animals in her
room, she might not be able to find
her bed. Wow, that would be neat !
| When Miki opened the yellow|
door, she found a yellow room
filled with games fit for a king.
Miki saw pin the tail on the
donkey, a fishing pond, balloons
for water fights, jacks, musical
chairs, drop the clothespin in the
bottle, bobbing for yellow apples,
hopscotch and ring toss. Miki
knew exactly which games she would
play first in the yellow room.
Using the shiny silver key, Miki
opened the silver door and saw
colorful streamers decorating every
inch of the tenth room. She also
found everything else she needed for
her birthday party. Here were the
plates, cups, napkins, forks and
spoons. For her guests, there were
stacks and stacks of silver whistles,
silver bells, horns, blowers,
birthday hats and other party favors.
She knew that she was ready for her
birthday party when she saw the
squirt guns !
Miki found herself in front of the
last door that had no key. She
leaned against the door to peek
through the keyhole and, as she did,
the door silently opened. She looked
inside. The rainbow-colored room was
ready for a birthday party with
something from each of the other ten
rooms, but Miki was puzzled.
Something was missing! How could a
birthday party be fun if you were all
alone? She became very sad.
Suddenly many voices sang out
"Surprise!" and "Happy Birthday!" at
the same time. Miki Maya
blinked her eyes and immediately
stopped daydreaming. She turned
around and saw Mire,Mai and Makoto. This
was her best birthday surprise of all !
Now she knew that having family and
friends was much more important than
all the presents and decorations or
even the cake. Oh, it was fun to be
6 and have a birthday celebration !
Happy Birthday !
