Wii (Pronounced like you are on a roller coaster - WHEEEE!)

We're doing our part to stimulate the economy with our tax return. We might be better off saving the whole thing, and rest assured we've got some left. As you know we recently stimulated the home improvement and construction area when we hired a dude to lay our tile. Well now we stimulated the electronics section of the economy.

We got a Wii.

Shortly after we were married Matt purchased a used Nintendo 64. We've had fun over the years playing Tetris and Mario Cart. It was packed away for about three years and then when Sam was about five we busted it back out.

Last year, after saving for over a year, Sam bought himself a Nintendo DS. It's fun, and you may recall I had a small addiction problem. Don't worry, I got over it. But now....


Here is our family, Wii style.
Align Center That's Mii.

Of course I had to make a Marlii.
(Yes, I'm a big dork and I took pictures of the TV.)

YEA! We got our wii as Jon's graduation present and we LOVE it!!! We really enjoy mario kart and Boom's a new one with several varieties of games on it...some are different Jenga towers you pull the blocks out of and my favorite are the towers that you throw a ball at and knock it over...we LOVE it!

No Emily, I'll still blog about my high scores.
Sarah, Boom Blox is the game I played for eight hours.

So fun!! We played over at the Rapiers once and we all have our Mii's loaded onto their Wii. Karen told me the other day she was running on Wii Fit and Mack cruised by and tripped. She thought it was funny and so did I!

We'd be happy to come play yours, load our Mii's onto your Wii and provide you hours of entertainment as well! :)

I do love boom blox. If you are at home playing boom blox alone instead of playing with me during cooking club today you are in trouble!
