Dad's Birthday Pillow now with the birthday boy's pic
My Dad has to be the hardest person to shop for. Every year I rack my brain trying to figure out what to get him for his birthday only to feel crushed when he opens it and he just raises his eyebrows. This year I decided I was going to try my best to make him something he will enjoy. Actually, this is the first thing I have ever made for him lol. I thought and thought about what he needed. To tell you the truth... he doesn't need anything because he always beats me and buys whatever he wants before I have a chance to get to the store. So... let's see.... he likes to sit in the den and watch movies.... Maybe a new dvd?... No, because he always falls asleep 30 minutes into the movie. So, hmmmm he enjoys sleeping in the den. Maybe a blanket? No, too time consuming and I might get mad if it just gets thrown in a closet. Ok think think think...... hmmmm what about a pillow? Owwwww that's a good idea..... but what are his interests? Oh, now I couldn't even come up with any if I tried. Now wait a minute !! Make it simple.... A Happy Birthday Pillow !!! So, I've been working on it since Monday morning and just got it done about an hour ago. I hope he likes it :D !

That is just so cool! He may still raise his eyebrows, but he WILL treasure it. Dad's are like that.
