By now, you have read Bubba's Sis' account of our wonderful surprise this weekend. And you know that Mr. Bubba's Sis is my hero! Christmas in February at our house! We couldn't resist giving the kids the Wii this weekend rather than making them wait til December. Especially since we told them their best friends had a Wii. The looks on their faces were priceless! Both when they found about the BFFs' Wii and when they saw their own.
So, Sunday afternoon, we hooked it up and created our Mii's. Here we are!
The really cool thing? Big D & I were bowling when all of a sudden Lamb exclaimed: Hey! That's Bear & me watching ya'll! We looked at the table behind us & sure enough, there were the kids! And I'm a baseball star! Whenever Bear plays baseball, we are on his team. I always hit home runs! Here that family? *I* hit HOME RUNS! Who'd of ever thunk it?
I have a strict no video games on the weekdays rule. However, I've let it slide this week. It's just too much fun and they didn't get to start playing until Sunday afternoon! And, as Bear likes to tell me, it's great batting practice. Uh huh. Once the newness wears off, I'll become strict again. No, really, I will.
