Wii Bought One!


Ok, after a long time of wanting one and wishing to have one, but thinking Wii really don't need one, Wii finally bought one on Saturday. And Oh My Gosh it is so much fun. We didn't by any extra games just the ones that came with the Wii.

This weekend we went up to Prescott Valley to visit Kyle's sister and they had a Wii so I officially got to try it out (besides racing with Mario at the Best Buy). We played bowling. I was hooked. The next day we were at Target in Prescott and there was one there and we thought about it and decided no, we don't need to get it yet. Then we get down off the mountain and stop at Best Buy and they had more! And we said OK! Let's do it! And we did! And it is so much fun!

Anyway, it was late Saturday evening when we bought it and so we had to get everyone ready for bed and my parents were here to come listen to Drew in his FIRST primary program (he did great by the way, his part, "Adam & Eve were our Dirst (first) parents." He was so cute, I bought him a white shirt and a tie and some black slacks Saturday evening, and my mom trimmed his hair, and he looked like a little missionary) Oh wait, I am talking about the Wii...

So anyway, I didn't get to open it on Saturday. So Sunday afternoon, I know it was Sunday, and I shouldn't have done it, but it was calling my name, so I did it. So while Kyle was napping the kids and I were putting it together. I was reading the instructions and Drew tells me, "Livy's mom can do it." I said, "Oh really, should I call her?" "Yes, mom." But Steph I figured it out on my own, actually it was pretty easy.

Anyway, then we bowled. Kyle was awake by then, so we created 4 Mii's. Drew wanted his Mii to be really tall with a red shirt of course. Jaedyn wanted her Mii to be little so we made hers as little as possible and hers has a little pink bow in her blond hair with a pink shirt. My Mii, of course, wearing a pink shirt and SKINNY. And Kyle' Mii has his goatee.

So we bowled and the family had fun. Jaedyn even got into it. She would think she was doing it and swing her arm and jump up and down and say woo-hoo!

Anyway, so we put the kids to bed, Kyle went to bed and I headed out the door to an adult fireside. Then I came home and decided to try tennis... It was even more fun the bowling, I sucked, but it was so much fun. Then I tried boxing. I did better at that and it was fun too (not as fun as tennis, but it was fun. Anyway, I kept thinking that if anyone could see this 38 year old lady playing the Wii by herself late at night they would have been laughing.

You are hilariously insane in the very cutest way!!! I have purposely stayed away from these types of things. I have a touch of O.C.D. and I know that if I ever got started I would never be able to quit! Thank you for sharing!

Hey Mela.. I'm a friend of Lisa'a - we just moved to AZ and I love your blog. We have a wii. Love it. Love Guitar Hero more. My girls give me the hardest time because when momma plays, she plays for a long time. :) I should really learn to share...

Hi Mela,
Of course I remember you...I am such a good blogger I don't get back to people right away! Have fun with the Wii - We have one, too and that is the only game like that I allow because you have to be up and moving while you play, so that is my excuse. Bowling is fun! Boxing made me seriously sore the next day!!:) You have a cute family! Alliene
