Strange Addictions...

Most boys (and men) that I know have a tendency to get addicted to video games. As soon as they set eyes on one, their brains seem to liquefy and leak out of their ears. They can't hear you, understand you, and won't acknowledge you until they have sufficiently beat the next level or conquered the game. I thought I had a pretty good grip on the importance of video games in a man's life until I saw this:


As I was walking toward the basement door last week, I passed the bathroom and noticed that my three nephews were sitting there in the dark. I had to do a double take before I realized what was going on. Joseph had needed to go to the bathroom but didn't want to miss seeing Mason beat the next level. So, out of common courtesy, Mason and David moved into the bathroom with Joseph so he could watch while taking care of his "other" business at the same time! Life never ceases to surprise me! :)

New family pictures! WHAT?! I love that one at the top. =)

Craig and I were just talking last night about his roommate's disturbing over-obsession with video games. It's sad to me, but it does seem to be a common thing with the fellas. Let's just hope the cuteness of video games with your nephews evolves in an okay way when they get older. =)

That is such a cute family picture!

That is one of the most hilarious pictures I have ever seen. That will be priceless to show them when they are older!

Yeah, I thought I knew the power of video games, but I underestimated them. What courteous those two boys were to go sit in the bathroom, though! Very kind.

p.s. totally love your new background and header. We should've stayed longer to get brick background pics! Those look great!

EXCELLENT post! It makes all the sense in the world to those of us who can fathom the sophisticated depths of the male mind.
