We just want to thank you so much for the Wii which arrived last night at 7.30pm. Ben was allowed to stay up whilst Dillon set it up and was the first to play tennis. When Mollie got home late from Girls Brigade she was also allowed to stay up for an extra half an hour to play. Beccy and Joules finally got to play when all the children were safely snuggled up in bed. As the children were allowed to stay up late to play they promised there would be no grumpiness today.
As promised your niece and nephews awoke jolly and happy, (Ben woke up early so he managed a quick play before school). The wii is very popular but most of us are good at sharing.
Perhaps we shouldn't tell you that Beccy has hit and nearly broken the light four times; that Beccy nearly punched a hole through the wall when chasing a ball; that Beccy keeps running into her children trying to get to the ball; that Beccy walloped Ben very hard on the elbow when hitting a ball (Ben burst into tears, Beccy felt terrible put down her controller and swept Ben up in her arms to soothe him, Ben continued to cry and call Beccy names whilst playing the game and therefore winning); that Dillon started punching the furniture when he lost to Ben and that Ben starting hitting Mollie and Beccy when he lost.
Beccy has a sore thumb (from when it connected with the light at full speed) and loves the Wii.
Dillon loves the Wii.
Mollie loves the Wii.
Ben really loves the Wii.
Joules loves the Wii but is not sure he likes the amount of tennis being played.
Perhaps next year you could give us a larger room so Beccy stops hurting herself!
Thanks Sam, we love you.
Beccy, Joules, Dillon, Mollie and Ben
