Wallene received a Wii for Christmas. Although we have never been parents that jump on the latest fad or must have [I refuse to stand in line at 4 am or to reserve something just so my kids can have something] - we figured it looked pretty neat, they were in abundance this year and they are cheap [well, cheaper] than years past. So we went for it. She was really surprised because she hadn't asked for it. It was awesome when she opened it. I think she screamed almost as loud as when she opened up her new copy of "JAWS" [yes, I caved. she got the damn movie. heehee]
I have to say this game is fun! Right now we have the sports package that comes with it [bowling, baseball, tennis, boxing and golf] and we have spent every night since Christmas playing against one another. It is actually something I can participate in because I can sit down between turns and I am not actually holding a real bowling ball [which I know I couldn't do] or a real bat and have to actually run the bases during a baseball game. [Me? Run? Like that would happen.]
Does anyone have any suggestions for other games to get? I know she is going to purchase Mario Cart with her Christmas money, but I know absolutely nothing else about what would be a good game. Any ideas would be greatly appreciated.
