Hannukah gifts too! : D

My mom was all about "family" gifts this year, so my sister and I acquired a ten dollar game with a Wiimote Wii Play, Wall-E (We actually bought that one before the holiday.), and this morning we got the new Monopoly game with the credit cards! Holy Crap.gif And on the first night we got the necklaces.

But tonight we're going to my grandparents, who got us bonds, but my other grandmother and my aunt are gonna be there. And my grandmother payed for my Ocarina! YAY! No birthday gift from her because it was expensive, but IT'S A FREAKING OCARINA OF TIME!!!1!!!1!11! It comes with a Zelda songbook and a case. Holy Crap.gif And I think I'm getting the Heroes 2008-2009 calender, because my aunt always gets me calenders, but she always makes sure I get the one I want. (Like the Dragonball one she got me a few years ago. I still have it 'cause I like the art. :3)

I'm not getting anything else. Not expecting it, because my parents really spoiled us last year (with my sister getting a "Barbie Girl" and I got Super Mario Galaxy). But I did buy myself Chrono Trigger DS, so I got one thing on my wish list. Holy Crap.gif

We Finally Got a Wii! =D

...but it quickly got invaded by my two brothers so I won't be playing it anytime soon.

Other than that, I got a small camcorder, a portably mouse, some C***play CDs, and some DVDs.

It was a small Christmas in terms of how many presents I got, but one of them is far more valuable than most things.

I got:

- A Pulp Fiction movie poster
- $55
- A 4-Day Trip to New York City with my church

I gave:

- My mom a Starbucks Gift Pack with two portable mugs and four packs of coffee
- My mom's boyfriend a wallet

Small Christmas this year.

Call of Duty: WaW (Mum and Dad)
Fallout 3 (Mum and Dad)
IT Crowd series 1+2 (Mum and Dad)
Toothbrush and shower gel ("Santa" :P)

Dead Space (Twin brother)

Desktop Commando (Older brother)

Graphics tablet of some sort. 'tis in German Stab.gif (Sisters)

My eldest brother didn't get anybody anything. He seemed annoyed that I didn't get what he was hinting at wanting. I couldn't afford it, he squirmed knowing he couldn't complain about his gift. 'twas very lol.
It's OK not to be nice to him though, he's of the mind that it's perfectly reasonable to take gifts back off people whenever you want for whatever reason you want. :P

I feel bad that I couldn't afford to get anybody anything decent. :(
