A couple weeks ago...Bobbi and I were grocery shopping at Wal-Mart when we found the most amazing thing. Pez Jesus. Okay...it wasn't really but it looked just like him and I had to buy it especially since there was only one. You got it, there is only ONE JESUS.
We took it home and showed it to the kids and they were so excited....about the candy inside Pez Jesus. Once the candy ran out....Jesus was discarded like an old toy. I collected Jesus from his forgotten spot on the floor and put him in the fruit basket.
Yesterday, Mallory went searching for a snack and she spotted Jesus with the apples. She was so excited and ran to me exclaiming that she had found Jesus and he loved apples!
Soon...a fight broke out. The children were fighting over Jesus. And then Jesus was found again, this time in the couch cushions.
Mallory carried Jesus around all day and then informed me that he wanted to sleep with her during nap time.
And then he went to dinner with us. Mallory, who usually isn't very friendly with strangers asked our waitress if she knows Jesus. Imagine....the shocked look on her face when Mallory produced a Pez Jesus for her to see.
As she was headed to bed last night....Mallory told me that she loves Jesus. Me too, honey. Me too.
