We got a Wii!

Jordan has mentioned getting a Wii for our family, and we decided we may get one for Christmas. I've never been into video games, but I loved the idea of getting to act out the motions and that it was something the whole family (eventually) could enjoy.
While we were out on Saturday, we decided that we'd use just a small part of Jordan's bonus for something fun, and go ahead and get one.

No, no, no. That's not how it works. You have to be in the right place at the right time, and we weren't. After calling and checking 2 local Wal-Marts, 1 Target, BJ's (like Sam's), and all of the area Game Stops, and coming up empty handed, we realized how hard these are to come by. We were so disappointed.

Sunday, we got ready to head back to Hobby Lobby for a few mats and frames for Chandler Grace's newborn/family pictures, and when we were almost to Huntersville, I remembered they are closed on Sundays! OH NO!! We also had planned afterwards to head in the other direction to Statesville for Jordan to check on dress shoes for work at the Rack Room Shoes Outlet, but I thought of the Target in Huntersville. We almost turned around, but we decided we might as
well give it a try. And, to our great surprise, Jordan came out a hero carrying our new Wii! They had gotten in 45 that morning and when we there around 11:15 there were only 6 left!

Needless to say, all plans for the rest of the day were dropped. We went straight home and played from noon until 7 o'clock, stopping only for lunch and dinner! After dinner, Jordan went to run, and Kennedy played golf for an hour by herself.

Kennedy flipped out about it. But, so did Jordan and I! Boy, Kennedy picked it up quick. She beat me and Jordan in boxing and that made it even more fun for her! Even Jackson got to get in on the boxing action! Chandler Grace was entertained just by watching us! We now know how lucky we were to get one!
It was even more fun than I'd hoped for! We're all in love with Wii!
After baths, and putting the kids down for bed, you guessed it, Jordan and I played from 8:30 until 10:30!
*Oh, I beat the socks off of him in bowling. My second time to bowl, I got 3 turkeys, a double and a whopping 221! Woo hoo!
(I'm guessing a rematch is in my near future!)

The Wii is great fun we love ours. I was bowling at 37 weeks pregnant and thought I would go into labor laughing as Scott & I played!!!!
