The Force

This commercial is ADORABLE and it totally reminds me of Scotty. We put our (artificial) Christmas tree on a table right next to the heating vent in the living room, which means that each Christmas an ornament or two will sway or spin in the breeze of the heated air that comes out of that vent.

You can always find Scotty standing in front of a spinning ornament, hands extended, palms out, fingers spread, his face all earnest concentration..."I'm using The Force, mommy," he'll whisper.

It just about kills me.


  1. LOVE IT!!!! what's funnier? Darth Vader's double take or Dad's look to Mom?

    The boys got the first two movies for Christmas and we borrowed Jedi from My FIL. Thomas cried at the end because Darth VAder died and no one came to his funeral.

    Didn't see that one coming.

  2. okay I've only watched it like three more times...

  3. OMG, yes!! The SW movies are VERY emotional for both of my boys. I don't know what it is, but they laugh out loud, gasp, and yes, cry! I looked at Erik and said, "Are they crying? There's no crying in Star Wars!" haha!

    And, yes, Scotty and I have watched this together about 10 times! lol Scotty always cracks up at the end and says, "He's using the force on the car!!" Too cute.

  4. AAhhh!! I love this so much!! We are huge Star Wars geeks in our house. I can't wait for Ruffin to be old enough to watch them with us! :D

  5. This commercial is so funny! Although I'm afraid I don't share the same Star Wars feelings... I don't think I've seen any of the movies all the way through at one time.

  6. @Nancy ~ Erik was never happier than when he realized that Scotty was going to be a HUGE Star Trek fan! Tommy and I love Star Wars, but he was on is own until Scotty, at 2 years old, yelled 'kahhhhhnnnnnn' at the top of his lungs!

    @Carmen ~ better get used to it! ;)
