A bit late but here is the picture of Alan before he blew out his candles! - or should i say, Xander blew them while Alan was inhaling!
Alan took the day off. This is unheard of, he never takes a day off unless he is near to dying! But as Xander had the chicken pox, and Thursday is our busiest afternoon with dancing then soccer...it wasn't fair for Esmee to miss out on dancing because Xander wasn't allowed out of the house. The solution, Alan took her!
The kids were so excited to give Alan his presents in the morning. His very own Beyblades so he could battle with them - so cute!
