There is so much competition for game systems this year. Of course we knew this was coming but how many people have the money for them? I know my kids wish they could see a ps3 under the tree this year but that is NOT going to happen. Sorry guys, your mama needs a promotion first!
Wii is the cheapest system but I hear they plan on upgrading the system and coming out with a new model this time next year. I think I can wait on that one. As of today we have one game cube, one ps2 and two xboxes. Maybe next year we can trade them all in and get a PS3??!!
There are just too many choices.

This morning was so super busy. I got up at 5am to head out to the nearest gamestore to buy a Nintendo Wii for my boys. To my disappointment I was too late. They only had Wii's and I was number 10 in line. I hopped back into my car and then proceeded to the next nearest game store to wait there. It was 5:30 am and I was number 2 in line!!!! I was so excitted. My daughter came with me and I had her wait in the car because outside was too cold. I sat there with warm clothes on and a sleeping bag. It was still cold so then I wrapped a sweatshirt around my head and covered my nose and mouth with the sleeves. After waiting in the cold with no sun for 4 hours the manager came out to make an announcement. He said that they only have 6 Wiis and that was it. Alot of people were pissed. Not me! I was excitted. I got my number and was waiting to walk in then he said they opened at 10. That was another whole hour! My daughter has a hair appt. at 10am! I had to call the hair dresser at 9am to tell her that I needed to reschedule.
I am so happy that my patience and perseverence paid off. I got myself a WII!!! The boys are so happy with their christmas gift. As for my daughter, we went back to the game store and traded in her NINTENDO DS for $55. She then bought Sims 2 Holiday edition and I helped purchase the items pack. All three kids are happy this year with their christmas gifts and I am happy for that.
Christmas is about sacrifice. I traded in my DS LITE to make up the difference on the WII and also the difference on the SIMS item pack. I also sold back all of my games. Unlike some, I played with my DS often! Therefore, it WAS a sacrifice for me. But I am happy with my decision...
I cried, WII WII WII all the way home! :)
