On Prayers v4

Dear Heavenly Father,

Please bless our family tonight.
Let us sleep well and wake up.
We are so thankful for Jesus, our Savior.
Jesus was a happy man.
Until he died on the cross.
Please bless my dad that he will get a job. Or get paid for the work he does.
Please bless my mom that she will always be at home with us. She’s the BEST mom in the world!
Please bless my sister, M, that she will stop spilling ice, cold water on people.
Like her little sister.
And please bless Big C that she will stop tasering people.
Like her sisters.
And bless that we will be safe tomorrow.
In the name of the happy man, Jesus Christ,

The 6 y.o. saying the family prayer


On Prayer v3

The Mom: It’s just past 9pm. We need to have family prayer. It’s getting late.
The 6 y.o.: Why? ‘Cause we might wake up God after He’s gone to sleep?

On Muppets

The 13 y.o.: How do you spell ‘Mna Mna’? Is it ‘m-a-n-a-m-a-n-a’?
The Mom: Uh, no.
The 13 y.o.: Ok. What about: ‘m-a-n-a-n-a-m-a-n-a-n-a’?
The 10 y.o.:Manana Manana? Is that Mna Mna in Spanish?
