Kitchen table or a Wii.... hmmmm.

So its no secret that we spent our Christmas bonus money on a Wii. My bosses gave us some money at Christmas so we could get a new kitchen table (since ours is hurting something fierce). As we were sitting down to dinner one night, we watched as Charlie took his fork and repeatedly stabbed the table over and over. While we watched with practiced indifference, it dawned on both of us that if we had that new table, it was going to get the crap kicked out of it.... so we bought a Wii. And Guitar Hero. We are sooo both youngest children.

Anyways, as our first-ever family gaming system, it has been perfect for Winston. He has a great time with it, and it helps him get some of his energy out, plus, it makes for great parties (OK, so we've really only had one). We expect any and all neighbors to feel free to invite themselves over to play whenever they want.

Here are a few pics of our latest exploits:


Here's one of Win and Dad playing Guitar Hero. We've just let him start holding the guitar, but haven't let him start playing. Mostly that is because Dad needs to get good enough so that Winston doesn't beat him at this game like he does at so many others.




Winston and his buddy McKay boxing each other.




Our neighbors Sheldon and Luke beating each other's heads in (virtually of course).




The wives going for Star Power!




Dad and Winston having an evening jam session.

I love it! Sam and Winston most be lost buddies, because Sam loves to rock out on the Guitars with Shawn all the time! It is a really fun game - oh, and I have to mention that Shawn and I boxed on our nieghbors Wii and I TKO his trash!

I agree, Wii is way better than a new table!

I think the Wii was a good choice. :) Winston looks so cute while his boxing his friend. Love that little smile. It can't be as good though as track and field though right?

I agree with the table thing. I want a new kitchen table, but the same thing would happen to ours if we did get a new one, so it might come down the road. We need to have you guys come up to the new house sometime. And we need to come down there so Jordan can be happy. He was so sad for a long time after we left that day!

I can't believe there was ever even a question. Wii or kitchen table? Hello.
Thank heavens you guys made the right decision and now we can all enjoy your good decision (read: please bring again to Sunday dinner).
McGhies are my guitar heroes!
