Well, he may say he doesn't care, but you can bet that deep down the fact that you're making his birthday special counts. What a great idea to combine Christmas/birthday with one big present. I wonder why we never thought of that. My daughter has a friend with a Christmas birthday. She has her party in the summer. OT - I'm getting feedback from people I knit cool scarves for and sent way back. You kind of forget once the holiday is in full steam, but they are appreciated. Always a good feeling. I got my youngest the movie, Big, with Tom Hanks and we watched it last night. Great flick.
