I have to start this post by retelling an incident that occurred two years ago while we tried to gather around the table for lunch. Just some precluding info we usually begin our prayers by saying “Dear Heavenly Father.”
It all started when Mr. Ferrero Rocher called Cookie ‘Dumbledore.’ We were sitting down around the table to eat lunch. Cookie then started to call everyone a name of one of the characters from the Harry Potter books. The girls had been listening to the books on CD so she was quick to spew the names out matching them up with whoever she thought was the best fit.
After a couple of minutes of this Mr. FR cut in and said, “Okay we need to say the blessing. Whose turn is it?”
“It’s Bon Bon’s.”
We all quietly bowed our heads.
“Dear Harry Potter. . .”
We laughed so hard there were tears streaming down our faces. Mr. FR was the only one who could gain enough control to actually say a proper blessing on the food. So who do you pray to at your house? Obviously there’s been a little too much Harry Potter madness at ours.
I just wish we had seen all these fabulous ideas before taking the girls to see the newest movie. We had a fun time but doing some of these would have been a whole lot more fun!
