Happy Holidays

I am going to take a blog break for awhile. I want to wish everyone a happy holiday season, though.

We celebrate Christmas here. The one thing Thomas really, really wants for Christmas is a Wii. I happened to be out shopping one night before Thanksgiving and our local Walmart had one. I snatched it up. Good thing, too, because we haven't found one in any store we've been to since. Believe me, Thomas looks and asks the clerks, too.

Thomas eavesdrops on us, something I've known about for awhile. So Bob and I are taking full advantage of that. We whisper how devastated we are that we can't find a Wii. We have conversations about visiting websites every day looking for a Wii. If one of us runs to the store alone at night, upon our return we play the game: No, the rumors weren't true, there are no Wii's at X store.

Now Thomas is a smart kid and in the past when we thought we have pulled the wool over his eyes, we have not. I think this time we've done it, though. Even if we haven't, he's still going to enjoy his Wii.

With that, we're off to bake cookies, a gingerbread house, wrap gifts, finish last minute shopping, etc., etc., etc.

Happy Holidays.

You are sooooo sneaky! We're doing a version of that little game with our T, too -- except he wants a certain game, and wouldn't you know it? Every place on the planet is sold out! *hee hee hee*

Very Merry Christmas to you!

It's a real shame about you not finding that Wii. Maybe next time. :-) I hope you all enjoy it!

It's all about the surprises, isn't it?!

Happy holidays, and happy break :)

The boys are hoping Santa brings Air Hogs havoc helis, and we haven't seen any anywhere. Though I do think perhaps I might have spotted a couple still in stock online at Sears ;).

And it will be lots and lots of fun to surprise my daughter, who knows about Santa now and thinks that means the surprises are over...

Happy Holidays! We did the same thing 2 Christmases ago with my kids. The Wii was brand new and they wanted one badly. For the longest time when I told them I couldn't get one, it was the truth. But we lucked out and got one in from Amazon 2 days before Christmas. Oh the happiness on Christmas morn. :) Enjoy!!
