Okay, people- I know we're not supposed to tell, but I can't resist. I just saw the new Hannah Montana movie today with my kids and their cousins, and I found out that Hannah Montana is really a girl named Miley Cyrus! Just promise me that you won't tell anyone, okay? I don't think they want people to know. :)

This promises to be a very short post. I just think this is funny, and had to put it on the blog because I promised myself that I'd be better at posting the little, day to day things. I took a trip out to Salem today with Jack and Maycie, and as we were heading back we passed the Harry Krishna temple. Jack says, "look Mom, it's Satan's temple!" I about choked on the Pepsi I was drinking and asked him where he'd heard that. He told me he hadn't heard it anywhere, he just knew it. After I calmed my silent belly laughs, I proceeded to tell him that it was the Harry Krishna temple, which was just another church, and was not Satan's temple. I wonder if he thought that because it looks so different from our LDS temples. Anyways, I don't mean to offend any Harry Krishnas out there, it was just one of those funny things that come out of the mouths of four year olds.

Yeah, I know. I haven't been on the ole' blog for about forever. I'd say I've been busy, but that would be a big fat lie- I've just been lazy. So anyways, here's the latest. Maycie has been OBSESSED with princesses lately. It all started with a particularly whiny day (her, not me) and I was trying to get her attention with something that would settle her down for a while. I grabbed a Barbie princess movie out of our DVD cupboard and put it on for her. To say she loved it would be an understatement. After watching Princess and the Pauper about a hundred times, I finally couldn't stand it anymore and went out to buy a few other Barbie princess movies just for the variety. So for the past many weeks, all anyone has been able to watch around here are Barbie princess movies, which are constantly playing on every TV in the house at once, because Maycie tends to move around from room to room and has to see them wherever she goes. We even have to have at least one Barbie movie in the car at all times or Maycie will whine until the rest of us go crazy. She's also taken to wearing tutus whenever we're in the house (I make her take them off when we go in the car) and dancing around as Barbie sings those annoying princess songs. Anyways, to get to the point of the story, you have to know that almost every princess movie ends in a wedding where Barbie marries the handsome prince. One night, I was sitting at the computer with Maycie on my lap. She loves to sit and look at pictures in my photo files with me, so I flip through the folders and she exclaims over all the people she recognizes. I happened to be going through my July 2008 photos, and a picture came up of my brother Cameron and his new bride Selina, where they were just walking out of the temple. She was dressed in her beautiful white wedding dress on the arm of my handsome little brother, with a bouquet of flowers in her hand. Maycie went berserk, clapping her hands and bouncing up and down on my lap and saying "a pincesses, a pincesses!" It was so cute. She wouldn't let me change the picture, so finally I ended up having to turn on another Barbie princess movie to distract her. But it was worth it- even tiny girls know that you should look and feel like a princess when you get married. Now if only I could get those stupid Barbie songs out of my head...
