Weekly Winners

This my first time participating in Weekly Winners, but I think it will be a fun challenge. And, it will be a great way for me to make sure I take some pictures every week. I find that many weeks I don’t take any pictures because Joe is the main photographer in our family. Guess I’ll have to fight him for it. It’s a good thing we have two cameras!

“Stop! Don’t shoot!”

“He went that way.”

words of the month


we’re still alive

it’s been busy the last few days, what with all the races we’ve beaten and songs we’ve mastered. joe and i are *addicted* to our wii. it’s just so much fun. it’s much better than the xbox or any other gaming system because it’s much more interactive. the first day we had it, i progressed from not being able to finish songs to getting to the fifth set on guitar hero. and, the last few mornings, i’ve woken up and heard the soft “click” of the controllers and knew that joe was in there playing away.

we have a wwi date tonight, and i can’t wait. it’s really a great way to spend time together.

wii are busy today

joe and i have had a very busy day today. we’ve been doing a lot of this

and this

on this

today, we *finally* bought a wii. we thought they would be much more easy to find now that the console has been out for a while, but only one store in town had the wii in stock, and they only had three left. when we left the store, they were down to one remaining console.

first, we battled it out in mario kart and, after three circuits of not placing, i won first place on the final circuit. yay! that sure made up for the numerous 12th place finishes. 🙂

now, i’m determined to master guitar hero. i haven’t played it since new year’s eve, and i forgot how hard it can be! i’m getting better though. i’ve been playing “hit me with your best shot” because i *love* pat benetar, and my goal is to be able to make it through the song without getting booed off stage before the day is over. haha. wish me luck!
