Why?

BECAUSE TODAY IS MY BIRTHDAY AND I AM 12!!!

  34. Wishing you a huge Happy Birthday and a Great Christmas. See you in the New year! Sending birthday hugs. XO

  35. Happy, happy Day to you Erik!!!! Hope it was a good one.

  36. I am so sorry to see you go, Erik. Eleven-year-old-erik was a fun kid, but too quick to post most books. I concede. You Won! Now shoo, go away.

    “Happy Birthday, Merry Christmas, Happy New Year” all rolled into one! And another “Happy Birthday!” Birthdays are too special to wrap up in another holiday. So consider yourself wrapped up.. See ya’ next year.

    • Mmf mff phm mmfmffmph *struggles* *types with nose* That’s not nice. How could you do this. I knew it! You’ve taken over my blog! But, hey, at least I won! Head’s up for 2014!!! πŸ˜†

      • I have taken over your blog? Why I would not do that twelve-year-old Erik. Why are you typing with your nose? That is a good way to get your keyboard snotty and there is nothing harder to use than a snotty keyboard. 😯

        Per your request, I have posted a picture of the real kitties from the Christmas Eve post. I notice you have not checked it out, yet it is for you. It is the Christmas post, but maybe you got a cool new Lego set, or a stop-motion camera, or maybe a top-of-the-line keyboard cleaner and are busy playing with your new toys. I understand. 😐

        One more thing. You have 110 comments, no, make that 111 comments for this post. That makes you a popular blogger. Was it necessary to pad the number? You wrote 55 comments, soon to be 56? Now, in all fairness . . . STOP IT! πŸ˜€

        Happy New Year!

      • I don’t see any real kitties on the Christmas Eve post… πŸ‘Ώ And you wrote (and I quote) “So consider yourself wrapped up.” So… You took over my blog while I was tied up… but fortunately I read a Harry Houdini book and I know how to get out of it! πŸ˜‰

  37. Happy Birthday, Erik, and have a smashing Christmas! Looking forward to your reviews in 2014 ~

  38. Happy Birthday, Erik, and a very Merry Christmas!!!

  39. I was surprised when I saw your caption, Erik, and Sooo glad that when I read on, you were still reviewing books. πŸ™‚ Ha ha.

    Happy Happy Birthday a day late. I also left a late comment on Beth Stilborn’s site wishing you the best year a twelve year old can have. I am so glad to know you. πŸ™‚

  40. Have I mentioned I am soooooo gullible? I was so worried! Happy Birthday!!

  41. You are too funny. Hope your birthday was paw-riffic!

  42. Happy birthday Eric πŸ™‚ I love your website. Its really helpful. Any idea where I can download the latest book of 39 clues?

  43. Happy Birthday, Erik! I am new to your site but really looking forward to your 2014 reviews! Rock on!

  44. Happy belated Birthday to you, Erik.

  45. So much to celebrate! Happy Birthday and Merry Christmas!

  46. Happy Birthday, Erik — from one Christmas baby to another. Mine’s the 26th!

  47. That is a good one. Hahahah! Happy 12th birthday. Hope your Christmas was good. And have a good New Year!

  48. Happy birthday! Merry Christmas! Happy New Year!

    Yes, it’s me Daniel! It’s good to talk to you again and see you’re still doing well.

  49. Even though I knew it was your birthday when I saw the heading…I fell for it!!!
    Hope your day was happy!

  50. Happy birthday, Erik, from one capricorn to another. Hope you had lots of cake.

  51. Ha! Very clever, Erik. Hope it was a good one!

  52. I hope your birthday and your Christmas was great, grand and special. And I wish you a very happy New Year!

  53. I read the heading soon after you posted it and only for a couple of seconds, not any time at all really, you had me aghast, but then I remembered your birthday. πŸ™‚
    Sending you love and hugs for a great, fantastic, spectacular, productive, ‘authorly’, beautiful word-filled new year.

  54. December babies are the best! My own daughter turned 12 three days before you did (21st). She had a few friends come over to play Kinect (Just Dance 2014) and they all watched Pitch Perfect together. Low-key but so much fun. Two of her friends slept over as well. My husband and I were exhausted at day’s end with the energy level of middle-schoolers. Whew! I’m sure you and your friends are the same with the inexhaustible energy! I’m sure you’ve had a fabulous birthday, Erik. Happy Happy Happy Birthday! I sent a greeting through your Facebook Page, I hope you got that one too. πŸ™‚
