And Guess Who's Happiest of All...

... to have the power back on? Jedi Pie.




The morning that the power eventually came back on, he came into my room and said "Mom, I think we should pray for the power to come back." And I said, "That sounds like a great idea, Ry, go ahead."

"Dear God, please bring back my Xbox. Amen."

You gotta love a kid who knows his priorities.


I'm so glad your power is back on and that everyone made it through okay safe and sound.

The true essence of prayer. :)

He knows what to pray for, aye! My kid though an angel on the x-mas tree was the tooth fairy! Those are some gruesome pics from the storm! Glad you are all safe and the power/computer is back on at your house!

Bwahahaha!

This morning my 3 yo wanted to talk about poop while we were dining out. I told him it wasn't an appropriate subject when we were in a restaurant, because it's impolite. His rejoinder? "Tell me about poo poo, PLEASE."

*bangs head*

Great prayer - succint and specific. Thanks for the button offer. The sock posse is going to be fun.

Wow, if your mini-Jedi is into video games - have you guys tried Lego Star Wars? We don't have kids, but my husband and I played it for about 3 weeks straight.

It has scenes from episodes 1, 2, and 3, and after you run through them the first time you can go back through them with any character you've unlocked. So we would do things like making Darth Maul and Yoda team up.

I liked it because most of it was fairly easy and you couldn't die. If you take enough damage your lego guy would break apart, but he'd always come back to life. And it's all cooperative play. The few parts that I kept screwing up, my husband was able to get past so we didn't get stuck. That plus all the sets and characters made it one of my favorite games last year.

I'm rambling, but I LOVE me some Lego Star Wars.

I think my husband uses that prayer too.

Too. Funny.

and kudos for lasting five days before complete and utter breakdown - I would have been hysterical on day two. Okay mostly because of internet withdrawal ;o)

Heh, I'm giggling because I can totally read that outside of the context of being powerless after the storm. Then God comes off sounding like a jerk for taking a kid's Xbox away.
