Wii did it

Yup, we got us a Wii.

It all started with Audrey asking for a DSi for Christmas. Which we really didn't want to buy her (for a variety of reasons). I said to Chad "If we're going to spend that much money, I'd rather spend a little more and get a Wii that the whole family could enjoy."

Which led to Chad having a discussion with his co-worker about buying Christmas presents.

Which led to her saying they had a Wii that they really didn't use, and she would bring it to work for us to "try it out."

Which led to just bringing it home to try it. (Which is kind of like bringing home a kitten to see if you really want to keep it ... which is why we now have a cat ...)

Which led to the kids having a ton of fun with it. (Okay, the grown-ups were having a lot of fun too ...)

And now we have a Wii. So if you're looking for Christmas present ideas? Well, we don't have too many games yet... and bowling is getting a little old ;)

Yeah, notice the coffee table pushed in front of the TV? That's because the kids whip those remotes around so close to the TV that one day there is going to be an accident of gigantic proportions if there isn't a blockade!

oooo...so did you buy theirs from them? We love our wii. And, it works well for gifts from grandparents and stuff to buy games for them. And, go to the library and rent some on 2 for $2 Tuesdays. You can try out games for a week for only $1 each then. Perfect!

The boxing is fun too and it is a workout. My arms are always sore the next day. You are welcome to borrow some of our games to try out. It does make for a fun family game night!
