Tuesday's List: My Brother Turned 30

Catching up a little here - my list from Tuesday.

So, Tuesday was my brother Matthew's 30th birthday (which means my 30th birthday is less than 27 months away eek). For his birthday, I gave Matthew 30 envelopes (or packages - at least they would have been packages if I had taken the time to wrap them.) labeled 1-30 each with a card inside (and almost always a little gift) with something to do with the number of the envelope and something to do with Matthew's childhood. So today's list is the list of things I gave to Matthew.

The list is what the cards said - I will put in parenthesis what the gift was (if there was one and if it needs further explanation)

1 birthday, 30 gifts
2 flavors to make Purplesaurus Rex (magnet of a Purplesaurus Rex Kool-aide package)
3 Jasmine buttons
4 Smurf buttons

6 Star Wars stickers 
7 Boggle cubes
8 Garfield trading cards
9 Saved by the Bell trading cards
10 people in the Denton clan (photo of the family)
11 characters in The Magic School Bus (there has been a little debate over how many characters there are, so just roll with it...the gift was a Magic School Bus VHS)
12 pieces in a monopoly game (though I only had a couple to give as the gift)
13 TMNT postcards (vintage ones too, not some lame new age TMNT crap)
14 seasons of Ozzie Smith stats (an Ozzie Smith baseball card)
