Considering I don't have a job (still) I went crafty with his hand-made card from the leftover board-paper I used for my Geography class. I like to draw doodles so I sketched that in, with a story to make him laugh. It included fart jokes (yes, that says fart), you smell jokes, etc. Because even though he's thirteen now, he still finds everything hilarious, ESPECIALLY fart jokes. Not that I'm encouraging immaturity in any way.
I woke up early this morning to decorate his door before he woke up. First, I tapped a long table-cloth to cover the door, so he couldn't see anything else but that. Once he'd go through that, there is toilet paper hanging everywhere. Once he gets through that, there's a huge sign tapped to the wall saying "Happy Birthday." Then when he turns left, to go down the hall, there's another sign that says "Big Guy" (a phrase used often around my family.)
My boyfriend and I were able to buy him a gift after all, so I went to the store after I finished his decoration. I got him an Angels hat (my family is known for being baseball fans, but that's another post), some Adidas cologne, candy, and a foam football. Yes, he loved everything. Aren't I great sister?
