Arville and Alan - June 2008
Alan, we wanted to wish you a very happy birthday tomorrow (June 23). It is hard to believe that you are going to be 3??? years-old. Okay, so we didn't tell everyone how old you will be because you might not want us to and because everyone could figure out how old we are, too (well approximately anyway). HA! So instead, we are just putting this picture of your cake from last year's birthday celebration on the blogsite!!
Alan and Layla - last year on his birthday
Layla told us that you were going to be making the very most of your birthday by extending it over the week. We really like that idea --- they go by way too fast as it is. And this way, you will have the benefit of seeing more friends and family, visiting with them longer, and eating all that wonderful food that Layla has planned. A little bird told us that you were going to have a great steak and veggie dinner for one of those times. Sounds good!!
It sounds like your party on Saturday night was lots of fun and we hope you will have another good time tomorrow night on your actual birthday. The party (again at Aunt Sharron's this year) over the weekend sounds especially fun. Have a great time and give them our love.
So this year, Alan, we didn't embarrass you with pictures from your childhood - like we did last year. Bet you are glad, huh? That is why we put photos from your birthday party last year with this blog writing.
Seriously, we hope that you have a very Happy Birthday, Alan!
(This was our favorite photo from your last bd party)
We will be celebrating with you - in spirit - anyway.
We love you,
Mom and Dad
