We have the xbox 360 and kinnect at home. We've had it for a year now and it gets used slightly. Why... cause there hasn't been any games out there that have interested Amber or myself. Until now. Just Dance 3 and Zumba!!
This is what the games look like
Now Zumba was HARD - no doubt about it, it will take me some time to get there. There was a learning stage for all the moves, that goes fast too. Then the play zumba stage and there's a 4min warm up... that's as far as I got LMAO. Now Melissa and Ann both kept going, along with Amber. They were a movin'. Melissa felt like she got a good workout and wants to keep doing it each day. I'd like to learn the moves more and practice before starting the dancing.
If you could slow the moves down with a motion of your hand so the tempo slowed and sped up as you liked that would be great - Melissa's comment
Learning the moves - seemed ok at first
And the moves just got faster...
And then the fun started... a 4min warm up... now no laughin
FINALLY the dance started...
That was it for Zumba... wow a workout learning the moves and the warmup - the dancing was hard.
WOW - LOVED this!! Just Dance 3 was awesome. The moves are not hard, its funny if you mess up. The screen shows you the moves - there's a bar on either side to show you how each player is doing with their moves (good, excellent will show up) and on the top left you can see yourselfs in solid color to see if your in the screen sensor area.
They did three songs from this. Ann was wiped out, so that left Melissa and Amber. Wanna watch?
The first dance
So you can see the screen too
They had this cool Halloween dance on there lol
Party Rock Anthem!
OK all in all - Dance 3 was the best!! It'll take me a bit to get Zumba down but I'm gonna keep tryin'. The trees will be down too so we'll have more room LOL
Thanks to House Party for sending us the games!!

Ok so Amber picked this up the other day. She wanted to read it, but I'm old fashion, I read them first. Sorry I don't want her reading things she really doesn't need to be exposed to.
This one has them all - fairies, vampires, werewolves, witches and warlocks. Its a mix of other books I've read - it has the school they all attend, the groundskeeper, the headmistress, the single human mom and the missing warlock dad - one large secret to keep figuring out AND a love triangel lol. Its all basic witch book stuff.
The author does skip ahead in the middle of the book - which i guess I'm thankful for and you dont loose anything for it. It just makes the book keep moving faster. Most authors don't do it, they drag it on lol.
I was expecting from the info on the back cover that we were going to go through her finding out she's a witch - instead we jump right in with both feet and she knows she's a witch, shes trying out her powers and wow what a mess.
Three years ago, Sophie Mercer discovered that she was a witch. It's gotten her into a few scrapes. Her non-gifted mother has been as supportive as possible, consulting Sophie's estranged father--an elusive European warlock--only when necessary. But when Sophie attracts too much human attention for a prom-night spell gone horribly wrong, it's her dad who decides her punishment: exile to Hex Hall, an isolated reform school for wayward Prodigium, a.k.a. witches, faeries, and shapeshifters.
By the end of her first day among fellow freak-teens, Sophie has quite a scorecard: three powerful enemies who look like supermodels, a futile crush on a gorgeous warlock, a creepy tagalong ghost, and a new roommate who happens to be the most hated person and only vampire student on campus. Worse, Sophie soon learns that a mysterious predator has been attacking students, and her only friend is the number-one suspect.
As a series of blood-curdling mysteries starts to converge, Sophie prepares for the biggest threat of all: an ancient secret society determined to destroy all Prodigium, especially her.
I like it for Amber... and yes now that I've read it, I'm onto book two - Demonglass - hmm maybe that should have been the title for the last book!

I just finished Passion from the Fallen series. WOW its the best book yet! I love how Luce goes through time, through the announcers, and relives her past lives. There are several and each one is unique, the get more and more involved each time, learning more about herself and her love with Daniel. Its more about what happens between them then the kiss. I was surprised at the twist, loved it... but of course the ending really makes you wonder what is going to happen in the next book. Don't they all - but they only have 9 days.
Luce would die for Daniel. And she has. Over and over again. Throughout time, Luce and Daniel have found each other, only to be painfully torn apart: Luce dead, Daniel left broken and alone. But perhaps it doesn’t need to be that way. . . .
Luce is certain that something—or someone—in a past life can help her in her present one. So she begins the most important journey of this lifetime . . . going back eternities to witness firsthand her romances with Daniel . . . and finally unlock the key to making their love last.
Cam and the legions of angels and Outcasts are desperate to catch Luce, but none are as frantic as Daniel. He chases Luce through their shared pasts, terrified of what might happen if she rewrites history.
Because their romance for the ages could go up in flames . . . forever.
