The winner of the Wii is...

we sat the kids down after we saw the results of the contest. As straight of a face as I could make and I think I did pretty good. We told the kids that our picture was disqualified because Monkey took the picture. I know that was mean but you should of heard the cheers and screaming that occurred when we told them we won. I seriously think it took us 10 minutes to calm them down and explain we had to wait for it in the mail, plus the baby was napping at the time. We are all so excited.

I want to take a minute to Thank all my blogging friends (IRL and ones I've never met but hope to soon!) who helped us get votes! You guys are AWESOME. My sweet church family, you guys are the best. Also my dad who did everything he could to help us get vote to walking around his neighborhood asking the neighbors to vote for us and calling me every few hours to see what the votes were at. Now that is a supportive parent! I love you Dad. Can't wait to have you over to play.

Whoooottt!!! I am so happy for you guys! I know you guys will use it and enjoy it. Plus, MAN those things are expensive!!

That was really mean, though. We did that to the kids on Christmas when we bought some Xbox 360 games and then said "Oh man. I'm sorry... These won't work on our regular Xbox. We'll just take them back...." And THEN we showed them the new Xbox. :)
