Tonight we celebrated an early birthday for Tim. The actual date is Sunday when we'll be on vacation in Montreal. We didn't do anything too big this year. We just invited a few local friends to a smallish dinner at the Vietnamese restaurant nearby.

Plus, since we have a flight at 6:45 a.m. (and have to be at the airport one hour early), I knew we weren't going to be up for our typical late night thing.
Tim got some fun gifts, including the Elektra DVD and an iTunes gift card (from Jon and Amy), the Corpse Bride soundtrack and a voice recorder (from Everett), and the latest Terry Brooks book, a $38 Starbucks gift card and a pre-order for the City of Villains game (from Joe).

Tom and Christine, who weren't able to attend, also sent him a really cool game for PlayStation 2 called Katamari. Doris and Jenn also sent him something really cool, but it's backordered and won't arrive until after Canada. More on that after Tim receives it.

I gave him a pewter Jack Skellington jewelry box with a really cool stained glass lid. Inside, I rolled up a Canadian $100 bill to spend on anything he wants in Canada. But the best thing about that Canadian $100 bill was that it only cost me 80 bucks! :)
