What’s Going On At YOUR Place?

I stole a few moments tonight to catch up with some blog friends.  And you know what I found?  Very few of you have updated since Christmas.  Hmmm. 

Could it be that your house has been taken over by friendly alien forces?   Bumble Bee Helmet

Or that maybe there aren’t enough quiet moments to string together in order to complete a thought? 

Or maybe vast armies are waging war under foot… In EVERY ROOM OF THE HOUSE!!  …And you can’t even find your computer, much less your mouse.

fort 3Maybe (I sure hope not,though), you are even ducking wild-flying ducks and the hunters that are chasing after them!  Lol!

Duck Hunter

Am I close??  Because that’s what’s going on around here.

It’s messy.  And chaotic.  And noisy.  And fun.

We’re also enjoying our new Wii.  The boys have taken to it like flies to fly paper.  :) But, was there any doubt??

Playing the Wii 2

They race their friends on Mario Kart, and battle the enemies in a Star Wars game I couldn’t begin to remember the name of.

But sometimes, it’s just them.  And a stadium full of strange little fans.

Playing The Wii

They made a Wii Mii for me, and I have to tell you, I am in desperate need of some fitness training!  Guess its a good thing I got a Wii Fit to explore after the kids go back to school!

Then, last night we had our first measurable snow fall.  It was just enough to make things beautiful for an evening walk.  My camera skills and camera couldn’t possibly do it justice.  But I did take a few pictures.

Snow fall at night, with the Christmas lights still shining, is one of my favorite things.

I hope you are enjoying all the craziness of this year’s Christmas Break with your families!  I miss you all!

I finally updated earlier tonight, but am enjoying this little bloggy break. We've also been doing a lot of Wii playing. Fun, isn't it?

I love that picture with the tree at night. And we enjoy our Wii too. Mario Kart is one of our favorites. My Mom just bought me Wii Resort so I've been enjoying that too.
Big Hugs to you sweet friend.

Your boys look like they are having a great Christmas break!! :)

I know what you mean about getting around to updating my blog. I am actually still on vacation, so we aren't even home and I don't have all my regular computer equipment!

Love the lights! So pretty!

Those trees are GORGEOUS!! :)

And yes, the WII has been keeping us busy lately. :) OUCH! Who knew that tennis and bowling could make your arms super sore? :)
What games did you get or would recommend?
