Xmas gifts

My Xmas gifts from the rents/etc came in just now. I unwrapped all but the GBA game. Just what I asked for, 2 pairs of jeans, and a bunch of socks. The surprises were a couple shirts, which are nice.

The big surprise was the gift from the other family member. Every year, they buy me a kickass shirt with a dragon on it. I never wear them. This time, I was nearly in tears... It's an amazingly elite pullover with embroidered dragon. I'll never wear it. *sigh*

The reason I opened them is, of course, because I wanted to. But also because I want to be able to wear them over vacation - and since I knew what most of them were, it was no big deal. I'm not sure whether I'll tell them I opened them already or not. Prolly talk to them on Sun.

Since I just got a few new GBA games, I'm holding off on that one. I'll open it either before I leave or before I go GBA shopping next... whichever comes first.

EDIT: By request, pics of the pullover. front and back.

EDIT: I forgot to mention the reason I was ready to tear up when I opened the gift. My relative does not have any money. At all. I'm not even quite sure how they live... They've got so many medical problems... But every year they buy me these things. I don't want them, I don't need them, I would much rather they spend the money on themselves. But they refuse to stop, and send them to me each year. *sigh*
