I love Mii

I must confess, the best Christmas present by far for us was the Wii. The boys were sooooo excited to get *their* new Wii even though (according to my mom who gave it to us) it was for the whole family. It didn't take long before it was promptly claimed by the boys, but only after after Hoyte and I showed our dominance in bowling! ahem. It has been so much fun, but by far the best time had to have been when we were making our Mii's.


I laughed so hard when we were creating these mini-versions of ourselves. And some of them were just dead-on, even if the the person it was supposed to be didn't agree! My favorite, though, was Carson's. It was so stinkin' cute and looked just like him. Apparently he thought so, too, because all we kept hearing from him everytime he appeared was "I just love Mii!" Seriously. We obviously have some work to do in humility. (But who wouldn't love that face? ;))

Hi Kelly! Glad you and your family had a nice Christmas! Yes, those Wii's are addictive. We've had ours for a little while now, early birthday present for my hubbie, however with the addition of Rockband it has now gone downstairs ( makes it a little quieter upstairs, LOL). Our whole family has really enjoyed playing it. Have fun with yours!! Have a great day!

I KNOW exactly what you mean about the mii-making! That was seriously one of the best parts for my (then)5yo daughter. Have you got wiiPlay? Because there's a game in that called "Find mii" - and the kids love looking for their own miis in the game. Glad you're enjoying the Xmas gift!! WTG to your parents for getting you one.

Funny Mii story Kelly! You know what we did? We made Miis of some of our distant relatives so that they show up in the background when we're playing games. It's funny to hear Christopher say, Great Grandma GG is watching me bowl! It's so fun! Now you have to get Wii Fit! Awesome! :) Kathy

Wii got a wii, this year too!
I cannot believe how my 4 year-old son caught on to it. He got a 185 the second time he bowled.
I agree, the mii's are so much fun to make. One of the great things about it is that my kids are so entertained that they actually let me scrapbook in the adjacent room.

Our kids got a wii too and, soon my hubby and I started bowling and boxing... needless to say we almost took over the we. We had to tell the kids they had to wait their turn, LOL. It is definately a winner in the realm of video games which I swore I would never buy!
