Birthday Time

Nick turns 18 today!  Hard to believe!  I remember when he was born and the times he would sleep on my lap as a baby!  I don't like seeing those times gone...but that's life isn't it.  Not sure we'll get to see Nick today or not.  I'm hoping as I made him another gag gift for his birthday!  Here is the process!  I taped end to end money...this is $1, $5 and $10 bills...


You need one of those small Kleenex tissue boxes.  Open up the side and remove the tissues; retape the sides back and remove the center opening.

Then you roll the money onto an empty toilet paper roll and place inside the box.  Hold the last dollar out so you can tape a bow on it.

Then tape a stickie bow to the end of the last dollar bill and the box top....when they take out the bow the money will flow!!!!

At least I hope it will.  Over the years, I've made some of these gag gifts for Nick and for Ian.  Amber usually gets something more practical.  Only because she's a girl!  HA

One year I had Nick do  a scavenger hunt for his birthday.  You can see that post here.  That was fun!  

Another year I rolled dollars and placed inside a McDonald's french fry box!  That was fun too.

And another time,  I gave  Nick a pizza box filled with $$'s.  I ended up doing the same for Ian for Christmas.  This was a fun gift.  Just something different and what young man can't use dollars vs a shirt or pair of underwear.  HA

Hope we get to see Nick...if not, HAPPY BIRTHDAY!!!!   LOVE YOU TONS!!
