This post is a bit of a follow-up to the one I wrote last week about notable Christmas Gaming Memories. Because Catherine and I spent Christmas in Seattle with her family, we actually had several mini-Christmas celebrations, finishing today.
- December 22 – The night before Cat and I flew out to Seattle, we exchanged gifts with one another. There was no point in taking them to and from Seattle with us and we didn’t want to wait until we got home.
- December 25 – Christmas with Catherine’s family in Seattle. Meanwhile, my family celebrated in Phoenix opening all of their presents sans the ones from Catherine and myself.
- December 27 – My mother surprised Catherine and I by putting some of our presents from my family under our tree while we were in Seattle so we had a mini-celebration upon returning home from our trip.
- January 1 – Due to various work schedules and New Year’s Eve plans, we weren’t able to have the celebration with my full family until today. We all met at my parents house and Cat and I gave out and received our gifts with my family.
In addition to the awesome Xbox press bag that Catherine’s brother Keith got me last week, my family delivered on some high quality gaming loot this year as well! Pictures are below! I hope everyone had a great holiday! Have a great 2016!
Catherine and I had about half of these sets before Christmas but when my family asked for a Christmas list I figured these would serve as nice little ideas for them. Almost everything on the left side of the picture (save Unikitty) was a Christmas present.
Apologies for the blurry picture. I swear I haven’t even used that “Drunk Hunt” NES cartridge-shaped flask. Also, I forgot to include it in the picture but we also got Yoshi’s Woolly World.
Catherine was kind enough to get me some beautiful custom frames a few of my Borderlands lithographs from the Handsome Collection Clap-trap in a Box edition.
Fitting, considering my Game of the Year, that my sister was able to find this beautiful metal Vault Boy at a local farmer’s market. One more piece for my growing collection.
