Recommended Posts

As ever, it's time for the annual SF-O Holiday Haul Thread.

 

Myself, I got a Coach wallet and a Keurig K10 Mini, as well as a little purse and some clothes. There are still family members to visit though, so I will update the topic accordingly when we see those family members. ^-^

 

Merry Christmas everyone!

Both of my parents are rather poor. So I don't get much for Christmas.

 

Got Kingdom Hearts 1.5 HD ReMix from my dad, and 2.5 from my Mom.

 

That's about it. Might get some money from the extended family at most.

I got a 2DS. No games came with it. So then, one of my buddies buys me Fire Emblem Awakening, which is the first game I was gonna buy once I got the chance.

 

Pretty sweet haul, I'd say.

 

Oh, and a pair of really comfy pajama pants and some candy.

Well, this year, I asked for some very special Christmas gifts. I wanted to have buttons containing pictures of my grandpa and my uncle. My grandpa passed away when I was 7 and I lost my uncle to lung cancer in May. I wanted those buttons so that I can attach them to my bag as a way of having them with me wherever I go because I miss them so much. That to me is more special than anything.

That's really nice. :-)

 

I got some stuff...

 

$150ish total from extended family because I guess why not? Really surprised me, but I definitely appreciated it and used it on some obligations I had.

Ukulele (concert type) which was the big thing I asked everyone for.

A couple of Steam games from my sis (NFS Undercover and Glare)

Amazing Spider-Man 2 on Blu-Ray (best movie ever kind of, but not really 100% seriously)

Battlestar Galactica piano songbook

A nice wrist watch

Steam gift card

Some clothes

SATA cables :-P

 

The best "gift" I got this year, though, was getting back to talking to an old friend of mine. We used to be absolute best friends and somehow we just kind of fell out of touch... don't even know why! After months of silence I finally talked to them again, and all is well. I am so happy we're OK because I had really been worrying for a while but was too afraid to talk to them...

 

I really hope everyone had a good time with their friends/families regardless of whats kind of gifts you gave/received. :-)

You mean YOU don't have a pair of wind up hopping lederhosen?  Shame, that.
