Wii-kend Fun!

Will has a birthday this weekend. He turns eleven. Eleven. I can't believe how quickly 11 years have passed.

He has wanted a Wii forEVER! I really wanted to get one for all of the kids for Christmas, and we even found one to buy, but at the last minute decided to skip it. Will was sorta/kinda disappointed, so I told him to save his money and we'd try to find one for his birthday. He took me at my word and has been saving ever since.

I was walking through Walmart a couple of weeks ago, and as I was walking past electronics, I thought I'd check and see if they had any available. They had received 3 that morning, and I snagged the last one.

We gave it to Will after school today...and he was ecstatic!

We've been playing all afternoon and evening and it IS SO COOL!!! And ridiculously FUN!!! And completely ADDICTIVE!!! I LOVE it!!! We ALL do actually.

Happy Birthday, Bud! "Wii" love you!

I've thought about going Wii, but so far haven't took the plunge. I may look into getting one a little later. Everybody that mentions it says they love their Wii.

Happy birthday to the birthday boy!

Have a great weekend wii-ing. ;o)

Love and hugs,

Happy B'day Will! My best girlfriend's son just turned 11 today.

Wii 2 R hoping 2 get a Wii. My dtr is in a drawing (1 of 4), so her odds are pretty good. Wii'll find out on Monday.

Happy birthday, Will!

I've not had the chance to try the wii yet, but I've heard it's way fun. I'm afraid to... because I know I'd be addicted too! Have a fun weekend playing!

Until this past Thurs. night, I had not joined the Wii craze. I've never really been interested in video games.

I plan to do a post sometime this week on the fun I had Thurs night at a friends house.

Now I am seriously considering possibly, maybe looking into purchasing one. I am surprised at myself!

Glad you got one....what a blast!

What a great mom you are. He looks just like you!! Have a fun weekend.

Oh no, the Wii craze hit your house too! ROFL My kids want a Wii so bad and we told them that they could save their $, which they have, then we can get one. Now the problem is they can't be found!

Happy Birthday! My son turned 10 last week! :o)

Happy Birthday Will! From all the Smiths :)

Happy birthday Will!

Our household is on the lookout for a Wii, but most stores are still sold out of them. Our friends that have it just rave about it. Many of them have guitar hero and have so much fun together as a family.

How fun - have a great Sunday.

My hubby works at a bank and they bring a Wii to their meetings. They love it! He works in a really fun atmosphere! : ) So glad you got one!

Good Morning Mer~ Thought I'd share that we finally have a Wii! I happened upon one at the local Game Stop yesterday! It was a good thing too because we had a gift card from the store too! Yeah! You can check out my post about it on my blog. :o)
