the big gift

I almost forgot to blog about the special present the kids got this Christmas:
the long awaited wii!
we used the money my grandparents sent us and John's parents gave them
they were so ecstatic!
I had wrapped it up and labeled the box: do not open until 2:30pm(I didn't want their other presents overshadowed by the wii.)
I had been telling them all along(for years actually) that I wouldn't allow them to have one...
and then to really throw them off the trail I told them a clue to what was in the box was "pet store"- then they started guessing animals...
It was fun watching how surprised they were.
They couldn't wait to start playing...
1/2 hour a day- that's the rules! -except on Christmas ;)
