Merry Christmas and happy holidays, everyone! Here’s hoping everyone had a wonderful holiday filled with good times, good family and friends, and presents. This was a pretty low-key Christmas for us, our immediate family opting to just exchange a few gifts together.

We always look forward to Christmas, but we all know the best day of the year is December 26th. It’s great to see everyone, but it’s nice to have that calm when it’s all said and done. Plus, we can play with our new toys. My mom loved how I’m 25-years-old and she was still wrapping up “toys” for me from “Santa.”

The main video game I had received was the Spyro: Reignited Trilogy for the Xbox One. The Spyro trilogy was one of the few games I had for our old original Playstation years ago, so it’ll be fun to go back to that world and see how well it’s been remastered. I haven’t heard anything bad yet about the new game. I was also surprised with the complete soundtrack of Octopath Traveler, imported from Japan. Thankfully the little booklet inside the cover has the English names of the songs, as they’re all listed in Japanese on the back cover!

I’m excited to get back to Spyro as well. Plus, listening to the soundtrack, there are four CDs to it! The main video game I got was the Lego Harry Potter Collection for the Nintendo Switch. This game came out in October and I’ve never played any of the Lego Harry Potter games before. Having all seven in one game will be a treat and I can’t wait to finally go to Hogwarts. I also got two packs of Pokemon cards – one had a jumbo Tsareena card, which I was excited about. Tsareena was on my main team in Pokemon Sun & Moon. The other pack had a Pokeball card holder to go along with Let’s Go Pikachu and Let’s Go Eevee. I also got the game guide to those games as well.

I also got Rachel a Mimikyu doll that the dog thought belongs to her, haha! Aside from those games, we’ve also each gotten an eShop gift card which I’m planning on using to download Gris on the Nintendo Switch. I’ve had my eye on the game for a while, so it seems like the perfect game for the end of the year. Our grandparents gave us some cash, and I already spent mine on the new expansion pack — Get Famous — and a couple of stuff packs for the Sims 4. We have plenty of games to keep us occupied for a little while… At least until the new year!

I also got a new Monopoly game, the Cheater’s Edition. The point is to cheat and not get caught… but I kind of do that in regular Monopoly anyway. So I’m hoping the game will be a blast. However, I know people are expecting me to cheat, so it’ll be more of a challenge. We do have plenty of games to keep us busy for the new year and I know so many new games are going to come out in 2019. I can’t wait to dive into our new games!

  1. I haven’t played Monopoly in years! It sounds like you two had a great Christmas. That’s good :). My best gift was watching everyone open their gifts and being around my family. I got some neat stuff too, but I loved watching my kids have fun yesterday. I got a really neat Superman figurine and Green Arrow graphic novel from my wife. I’m trying to get into Green Arrow so getting the book I was thinking about buying was great. Merry belated Christmas to you!
