89. Have my brother's family visit

Matt and his family came down this past weekend to visit. It made it easy because it was also Christmas. It was really fun having them come down to visit and to enjoy Christmas with. The little girls all wore the same Christmas outfits and looked great together. There were two exciting parts of their visit that came out of my Christmas gifts this year. The first one was a game that my mom gave me called Ticket to Ride. If you enjoy board games and haven't played this game yet, it is a fun one. My sister-in-law introduced me to this game and I really like it a lot. It is similar to Settlers of Catan, which is also a really fun game.
The second exciting part was that I got a Wii for Christmas. I am not a video game person. My brother and I had plenty growing up, I just didn't put too much time into developing the skill of gaming. I am a good watcher though! The fun thing about the Wii is that anyone can play it. You don't need to know the correct combination of how to press A + B + X + Y, all you need to do is move the controller in a logical direction. I have enjoyed it a lot, I think the part that was most fun playing was when we all played the computer in boxing and cheered each other on. Nothing looks more ridiculous than watching someone else box on Wii. I don't know how anyone can do it well looking graceful.
Overall, I had a good time and look forward to the next time that we all get together.

It was a wonderful, family day. Too bad the picture of Matt isn't a video. Watching you all box was really funny. I love you, EP!

Welcome to the world of Wii. If you would like to borrow any games, I have quite a few.
