Addicted to Wii

Someone should have told me this game would be so addicting. LOL I have to admit that I am somewhat of a nazi when it comes to video games and TV. The girls do not get much TV time (pretty much zero) during the school week and maybe an hour or two on weekends. We have so many other things to do. But Christmas break is a little different, especially when some of their presents were video games. I have let them play the Wii pretty much any time they want, although I have strongly suggested doing other things periodically. I wasn't prepared though for how much I would enjoy playing. We, meaning my parents, sister, DH and I, played for several hours after the girls went to bed. My favorite is definitely Mario Kart. :)

Speaking of technology, my photo printer died several months ago and I have been using the HP one that came with my computer. I do not like it that much but it will do. I have a hard time justifying buying a new one when I have one that works just fine that was free. Anyway, when Comp USA went out of business I bought a bunch of ink for my old computer. Now I have ink sitting in my desk that I am unable to use. If you have an Epson printer that uses the T007 or T009 ink cartridges, would you please e-mail me. I would love to give these away to someone.
Alright, now for a couple of projects. I have to apologize for these being out of season. I created this centerpiece, invitation, and place card using the White Oak Leaves from Magistical Memories. I actually started with a Christmas wreath I found at Micheals for dirt cheap. I cut all the Christmas berries off and used just the wreath. The acorns and spiral pieces were also Christmas pieces, also dirt cheap.
