Dear Luke,
I want to thank you for coming to my birthday party on Saturday. It was great getting to see you. I hope that you had a good time. I know that I did!

My favorite parts were opening presents, jumping on the trampoline, and eating lots of cake and ice cream. What was your favorite part?

Please write back to me.
Your friend,
Remember to capitalize the first letter of the first word in the closing.
