We drove home from visiting family Christmas Eve night, we burnt our Christmas lists then tucked the kids into bed. After leaving Santa a snack and taking care of last-minute details, Ben and I dragged ourselves to bed. The kids were up by 6:30 and ready to open presents. Their big combined gift this year was a Wii. I must admit it is fun to play, but I enjoy watching the kids play more. I love watching them attempt Just Dance 4…the dance moves these kids have are out of control. Ben’s parents arrived and joined us for lunch. We had spaghetti, meatballs and salad. Dessert was christmas cookies, pie and reindeer chow.
If you just gasped when you read the above-caption then you are familiar with the green room/front room/quiet room…the room without television, radio – the room that is calm and quiet and mainly mine…yep that’s where the Wii is now. I will selfishly admit that the main reason I hesitated to get a Wii was because of placement. Having a tv and game system in any of the kids’ rooms was an absolute no. I did not want it in the dining room, Ben needs to sleep in the evenings before work so our bedroom was out of the question, which only left the green room. I’m adjusting and I have plans to turn the unfinished attic part of the third floor into an art room/quiet room, in the future.
Vita’s finished masterpiece cookies. Tomorrow I will show you some additions to my owl collection and show you my gift to Ben. Also I have some snow pictures to share. We finally got snow and I went a little camera crazy!
