"My Birthday Surprise"
was created especially for
Kelsey Shaye Whiting
at the age of 2
With Love From,
Mommy & Daddy
April 4, 2002
Kelsey Whiting was so excited! her "big" day had finally arrived! she had reminded everyone in Keller, Texas about her birthday on April 4, for a long time. Kelsey had not wanted a single person to forget this special day. Today she was 2.
For months now, Kelsey 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. Kelsey hoped Garrett, Tevin, and Ty could come. She was really looking forward to a great time!
It seemed to Kelsey 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 Kelsey knew that the keys were there to open those matching, colored doors.
In each dream, Kelsey would find many happy, wonderful surprises behind the locked doors... except for one. There were 11 doors, but only 10 keys. Kelsey 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 Garrett, Tevin, and Ty could help her.
In her dreams, Kelsey 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 Kelsey 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; Kelsey 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 Kelsey 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 Kelsey. She wanted to show all these beautiful cakes to Garrett, Tevin, and Ty.
When Kelsey 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. Kelsey thought it would be so much fun to slide down this kind of mountain. What a delightful, delicious time she would have!
Kelsey 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, Kelsey laughed until she could laugh no more.
The green room had so many presents that Kelsey had trouble opening the door. She wondered if any of the gifts were from Garrett, Tevin, and Ty. 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.
Kelsey 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, Kelsey 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. Kelsey 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. Kelsey knew that she would have to share this candy with Garrett, Tevin, and Ty or she would have a big tummy ache.
Behind the brown door were many, many huggable animals. Kelsey 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 Kelsey. 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 Kelsey opened the yellow door, she found a yellow room filled with games fit for a king. Kelsey 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. Kelsey knew exactly which games she would play first in the yellow room.
Using the shiny silver key, Kelsey 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!
Kelsey 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 Kelsey 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.Kelsey Whiting blinked her eyes and immediately stopped daydreaming. She turned around and saw Garrett, Tevin, and Ty. 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 2 and have a birthday celebration!
