Wii had a great Christmas!

OK, corny title, but I had to do it.
We actually ended up getting two Wiis. Santa brought one, and the in-laws brought another. So, we returned one but kept the extra controllers & game that they also bought. Score!
We are totally loving this thing. It is SO much fun! If you don't have one, I highly recommend it. I'm so not a gamer but I really enjoy the Wii.
The kids also each got new bicycles, so they've enjoyed those also.
We got a laptop from the IL's, which we haven't hooked up yet but I can't wait to play with it! Yay, posting from the sofa!
My favorite (material) gift? An electric blanket from J. I didn't ask for it, but my body temperature has changed drastically with the weight loss, and I get really cold. It was the sweetest gift! I love those surprise gifts he gets for me the most. He always asks for a list, but gets other things too, things he just knows I'll like. I love it!
We had a yummy Christmas dinner of fresh seafood, and then spent the afternoon and evening with our families. We had a birthday cake for Jesus. It was really a wonderful time.
And now we're already planning a vacation for Christmas next year. Sweet!
I hope you all had a lovely holiday!
