Ho! Ho! Ho!

And they play nicely (for the most part) – it’s Sydney’s turn at Wii Fit and David asked nicely if he could play with her Leapster (and she said yes). … If it wasn’t windy with 3+ inches of snow on the ground with pretty much the whole region shut down (like the past 4 days), then I’d probably already be on the road to find some more Wii toys.
