Too bad none of our friends play Halo 4 anymore.

I've only had Christmas with Jocelyn's side so far. I scored some really nice tennis shoes, a light jacket, a Pub trivia game, and gift cards.

I got all romantic got a hard cover book made of my favorite engagement pics and gave it to Jocelyn. Probably the best gift I gave this year.

Oh well, I like the halo campaigns anyway. I'll just have to pwn some n00bs without anybody else.

As for what I got for people; I got my parents both some Vikings apparel, got Ashley a neat set of glassware for her new apartment, got Michaela a movie she wanted, and got McKenzie some fingernail polish art stuff because she likes to play salon.

I tried giving that to Jocelyn for V-day but I didn't research the place well enough and she got cold feed when she read the user reviews. Oh well, Groupon gave me the money back.

Can't believe this is the first time we've shared our Christmas gifts in 4 years!

Erin and I decided to do a long weekend trip again instead of giving gifts to each other (did this last year and went to Madison, WI). Going to St. Louis, MO this time so that will probably be the best gift given/received. Not going until early March though.

Sarah's been to this place before, I did have to do a little detective work to find out which place it was tough

My actual gift from Sarah was that she will not judge the gifts I buy myself over the holidays haha. I tend to buy myself what Sarah was planning on buying for me so she has given up.
