Nintendo DS

Santa Claus picked Mica and Isaak up a Nintendo DS. Both boys have never had any game program, or cable TV.

They watch Grandma Spiehs play Solitaire on a hand held device and their cousin's have a game system of some kind. They have cable at Grandma and Grandpa Spiehs' to. Sometimes they ask me to fast forward our TV. Sorry, we can't do that with rabbit ears.

A game system was on Mica's list.

Christmas morning they unwrapped their joint gift and this was Mica's expression:

They had no clue what was in that box. They didn't even care to open it to find out. It didn't bother me in the least bit. Mica and Isaak built things all morning long with Legos, an erector set and a puzzle. They were happy and hardly fought.

Daddy opened the DS late morning. Then they were absorbed. Mica got Mario Brothers and I can't remember Isaak's game, but it was more educational. I was super excited because at Kohl's I got Kung Fu Panda 2 and Lego Ninjago games for future presents. I'm thinking Easter or their birthdays. I thought about giving those for Christmas to, but two games is enough right now. 30% off plus 2 $10 off anything in the store cards twice! That took our games from $28 to $6 and $10. One time the games were on sale to.

Yes we stayed in PJs all day yesterday, except to see if two shirts fit. :)

Mica and Isaak kept making their characters die. It will take them awhile to get the hang of it. Isaak said a few times, "WOW I actually made my guy jump!"

Daddy's sister, Aunt Laura to the boys called. She wanted to talk to Mica. I only heard what Mica was saying.

Mica: "Something happened to me that changed my world!" Pause..."I got a game system!" 
He said a few other funny things, but that one cracked me up the most.

Isaak and Mica were definitely thrilled with their gifts. I am happy they had such a good time. I like what Mica said to Aunt Laura!:) Enjoy the rest of your week Alissa.

Haha - love the expression on his face.

Both of my boys have a DS, but I got pre-owned ones from the game stop. They have each have a warranty on them, so when they get dropped and broken they will be replaced for 2 years. It seemed worth it to me.

Oh, his world is definitely changed now lol. Those games will suck you in! You got a fantastic deal on the games! I am always a sucker for Kohls when they send me those 30% off coupons and then I get the Kohls cash. I always tell myself I need to say NO, but it never works!
