Me"WII" Christmas and Happy New Year

Yes, we actually got a Wii for Christmas! Can you believe it? Good news is that we got it used and with extra stuff for a GREAT deal! We had so much fun playing it with all of the family. Seriously, my dad, brothers, sisters, niece & nephew, and all of my brother and sister-in-laws had a blast playing. Wherever we went on Christmas we took the Wii with us. It was quite entertaining. The best though is that Colton will now take one of the controllers and stand at the tv "trying" to play - it makes Seth and I laugh (and get a little scared) at how much he watches and mimics everything we do. We did SO much these last few weeks that it would be a novel if I tried to write it all down, so here's some of the highlights in pics!
This was from our ward Christmas party... As you can see, Colton took the classic Santa picture. Isn't that such a sad face?The Saturday, before Christmas, we packed up all our stuff and all of our Christmas presents and drove out to my parents in Queen Creek (1 hr 15min) to spend the week with all of our family. Our car was so loaded up that (as you can see) the only room left was for Colton and his car seat. He doesn't look too happy does he? (He was actually about to fall asleep)
My friends from High school - Danny and Micah - host an annual friends Christmas Party. It was so good to go and catch up with everyone. Tricia's in town from Iowa and I hadn't seen Lindsay and Kristy since we moved back - it was sooo good to catch up, even if for just a short time. It's hard to believe that we graduated almost 13 years ago!

After the friends party we went to the Griffin Family Party... yes, another Santa picture. Are we mean or what? Well, as you can tell from the next picture though he figured out quickly that this goofy looking guy was going to give him something and all of a sudden he was happy! Thanks to Nanny-G for providing the present for him to open. (It was a car!) Colton didn't know quite what to think of Christmas morning and unwrapping presents but he quickly caught on. Here he is literally "body slamming" his present from Oma and Opa (A Radio Flyer Red Wagon) Before we left to come back home we discovered my nephew Parker had a hidden talent bowling on the Wii. He beat his mom so she gave him a dollar! Isn't he cute!?

Okay, Cory should come play the Wii with you guys! He is addicted!!! We got one for Christmas (I haven't played it yet, but I enjoy watching Cory and the girls). I wish we could have gone to Danny & Micah's party (that was the same night as my mom's 1 year anniversary of her passing), so hopefully next year we can join you because they are so much fun! It's so fun when the kids begin to slightly realize who this Santa guy is, isn't it? Way fun pics of Colton.
