Merci Beaucoup

My brother surprised my husband and I with a not so normal wedding gift! A PS3 to be exact! We received it a few weeks ago and can't wait to get our hands on some new video games & blu-rays of course! Avatar? Check! He recently bought himself a bike, so I thought, what could be more fitting? Thanks Jonathan!
