Wii finally did it

The lovely stimulus package arrived last Friday. Wii put money into the kids' savings accounts, our accounts, and decided to go ahead with the option wii had been thinking about. Wii gave the kids money to spend together (or much less to spend separately). They first decided to get Guitar Hero for the PS2 and so Corey took them to the store. Turns out that Sony isn't replenishing the stock of GH for the PS2. The kids were disappointed to say the least. Corey was asking the clerk about the Wii and how long it usually took when on the waiting list,etc. He said that he thought he had one in the back if he was interested. After talking to the kids (seriously now) they said yes. I received a phone call from them and received the message via very excited scream "Wii got a Wiiiiiiiiiiiiiiiiii!!!" LOL!

Sooo...wii finally bit the bullet and joined the Wii Club! The kids got to stay up late and play a few games. Then Corey and I played bowling for about an hour. Not bad considering I'm sick... coughing my head off & feeling like crapola. Today has been all about trying out the various games and planning for future game purchases.

Dare I admit it? We've had a Wii since February (Rob had some notification via text message thing set up in order to get one), and Rob and the girls really love it. I've only played Ravin Rabbids II a couple of times..not so much my thing.

But Chloe loves baseball so much that she was inspired to get a wiffle bat and balls this year.

I love that most of the games get them moving and thinking spatially. I'm still not a huge fan, but as computer games go, it has some good things going for it.

I hope that you all enjoy it! Our incentive wasn't enough to cover my groceries for a half-week. Oh well.

Ooooh. I missed this post? It didn't show up in my bloglines til today!

Ok, you need to email me your wii number! And did you get GHIII? If ya did, gimme your GH number we can battle each other online (if you've set up your wii to go online that is!)

Games we like? Super Smash Brothers is a lot of fun. We like Cooking Mama too. But MarioKartWii is a *blast*. And you know I have a thing for Guitar Hero (btw, GH4 comes out in the fall, its like RockBand with the various instruments)

Oh by the way.. I know so many people who were using the stimulus check to buy a Wii, that everyone calls it the "wiibate"

Can I come over and play? You have to go back and get the Guitar Hero for the wii, it's the best. I am so addicted and I am 36!!
