Santa Knows Best

One of the most popular gifts this Christmas at the Semi-Slackers was this...

An impulse buy by Daddy Santa at Toys R Us for like $20.

Retro, Brooks & Alden have been fighting over this since Christmas morning. Let me add that the recommended age is 4-8 years.

Retro has been having some major 80s flashbacks with games like Pac-Man (3 types, except Ms.) Pole Position, Galaga, Rally-X (my fave), Dig Dug (Bo's fave), Galaxian, and Bosconian, 12 in all! I'm not much of a gamer, so some of these I've never even heard of.

Tomorrow we'll be teasing our hair & wearing parachute pants & day-glo tees.

Funny! My nephew has that at his house, and my daughter and great nephews were loving it on Thanksgiving!

BTW - stopping over from TheMomJen - you really should get Julie & Julia on PPV. It was such a good movie. We just finally rented it last week, and I so loved the movie. It is one I will buy, I don't watch many movies over again!

Happy New Yeaer!

I loved the 80's.

And big hair is coming back. Sad, but true.

I love Pac Man and totally kick my kid's fannies on it!!! We have it on Wii.

Looking at that tree house just kills me. That brings back many Christmas Eve memories. I am so glad my kids are out of that age group.... and have moved on to Coach and David Yurman. Still is expensive, but no assembly required.
