Presents for me and you on my son's birthday

Today is my oldest son's birthday. 17! How in the world did that happen? He's a great kid, but he's not getting many birthday or Christmas presents this year because he's going to an amazing lacrosse tournament in Florida the week after Christmas. I told him, "If you want to go, we'll make it happen, but this means no birthday, no Christmas, no money for school lunch, no Mom or Dad taking pity and filling your car with gas." He grinned and said, "Thanks, Mom. This is a dream for me." How do you not try to make their dreams come true?
Instead of Denver getting presents today, I got a huge one! A box filled with books, movies, and a beautiful statue of the Savior. Wow. Thank you Deseret Book!
