Wii have a bit of a problem!

Well, here Wii are a few days after Christmas. The house is in shambles with gifts and boxes and Christmas decorations everywhere.

Wii already took our trip to the U.P. to visit my parents and finally, Christmas is officially over. Now it's a matter of getting rid of all the evidence.

Hubby just left to go get groceries because Wii are totally out of food, unless you count TONS of stocking goodies and that mammoth box of chocolates my father-in-law gave us. Wii are trying to figure out the best way of disposing of that--a way that doesn't involve our mouths.

As for Mii, I don't even know where to start. There is just that much. Wii have all our laundry from the trip, dirty dishes Wii didn't manage to take care of before Wii left, and all the rest.

What's a girl and her hubby and kids to do?

Well, if you're anything like Wii are, you seem to think that if you go to the family room and play the Wii non-stop, the mess will crawl away on its own!

Yes, my friends, if you haven't caught on yet, this family has turned into a bunch of Wii addicts.

The worst offender is Logan. The kid is OBSESSED with the Monster Jam game. Hubby is his accomplice. I can't blame them, though. I haven't had a whole lot of chances to play myself, but the few times I have, it's a lot of fun! I love the bowling game on Wii sports resort. I really stink at driving monster trucks, though. I've never been much of a video game player but this thing is really different from any other game I've seen before.

Plus, I created a really cute Mii!

Logan and Hubby have played all sorts of things: Monster Jam, golf, bowling, baseball, sword fighting, airplane games, etc. This thing is so neat!

Hubby's Mii is funny. He always looks kind of mad, but other than that, it looks a lot like Hubby. Logan's cracks me up. His name is Ziffer and he has shades and a beard. Totally cool. Ziffer is a riot. And he's pretty darn good at sports for a four-year-old with a beard!

Anyway, I have a feeling the house is going to stay kind of messy for a while.

And I really need to come up with a valid "daily screen time" system and enforce it once the holiday is over (Logan and Hubby go back to school and work on Monday). Otherwise my kid is going to be a total video game junkie and forget how to read, write and play on his own!

But if you're looking for us anytime in the next few days, I'm pretty sure Wii will be in the family room.
