|Chocolates and Nightmare Before Christmas. He knows the way to my heart.|
I try to buy or make something he'll like, which often tends to be nerdy. Last year, I made a card based on something I found on Pinterest.
|Mario is Red, Sonic is Blue|
|Will you be my player 2?|
It definitely took a while, but totally worth it. Who wouldn't want a Nintendo valentine with Mario and Sonic? I took out some fine-tip colored markers, printer paper, graph paper, and pictures of Mario and Sonic. I'm nerdy enough to know that Mario is 8-bit and Sonic is 16-bit (originally), so each pixel for Mario would be four for Sonic. Unfortunately, the squares were too big on the graph paper I had to do four squares for each Mario pixel, so I colored Sonic a quarter of a square at a time. Each Mario pixel was one square and each Sonic pixel was 1/4 square.

He liked it, but he was definitely more excited about his cookie dough oreos. Can't really blame him!
