Glad you're having fun chuck. Good thing our kids don't read the site with all these christmas and other gifts you guys are doing. That sparkly pencil and the fancy hand drawn tic-tac-toe grids I made for them wouldn't seem so special if they knew what your kids get.

So wii went out and did some shopping, rented the Pokémon game and Mario striker (soccer) also bought thrillville, the wii came with the sports pack and the wii play pack and a family member gave him Mario party 8, so far the kid loves everything and has even let me play a few times
I've managed to crash it once, I'm thinking it was a disk read problem that did it:shrug: I think he played it for like 9 hours yesterday:shock: this thing is fun, I was amazed to see the news and weather channels are free:shock: I figured there would be a charge for sure.

Well the Wii is for me as well. The gift will be to my Son and I. I sold a bunch of stuff on ebay to fund the Wii. So normally we do not spend this kid of $$$ on presents. But since I was going to buy a new system anyway we kill two birds with one stone so to speak.

Just harassing you guys Darth. :p That Wii does look pretty fun, I like the way it gets you up and moving. Might not work well on our 13" TV, though, eh? Maybe someday we'll upgrade it all.
