Wii Got It

Yes, Wii do!

We were very generously gifted with one of these systems for Christmas. Of course, the hype has been incredible this past year, and my kids made sure it was on their lists.

I wasn't sure about it. I admit had Colecovision growing up (anyone remember that?) and loved to play Donkey Kong. Remember when Mario wasn't the star and the Princess wasn't a fruit?

But, Santa had her (ahem) way and we ended up with it. I was surprised at how small it was. It is half the size of my DVD player. While the kids were still on vacation I brought it back home and set it up to make sure that it worked with my older tv.

When J. came to visit, we tested the system to make sure that the games worked correctly. Wouldn't you? I think I ended up with a rotator cuff injury during bowling...


  1. It's GREAt isn't it? We got one for Emily this summer and she loves it. Well, she loves the singing and dancing games...not only is she *not* sporty in real life, she isn't so sporty on Wii either! LOL Takes after her Mom I guess...although I do love the bowing and tennis!
    Have fun!!

  2. I just can't believe how appalling my bowling score was. But oh if I could practice, I'd be burning up the lanes! : )
