My Political 4 Year Old

Rob and Kayla were in town this weekend and Kayla was having a little conversation with Perry.

Kayla: "What's your teachers name?"
Perry: "Mrs. Seal."
Kayla: "Mrs. Seal?"
Perry: "No! Seeaal (pronouncing it very slowly for her.)
Kayla: "Seal?"
Perry: "No, like how Orock Obama seals everybody's moneys."
Kayla: " Oh.....Steal."
Perry: "Yeah."

Her name is Mrs. Stihl.

He didn't learn it from me, but at least he knows the truth. He probably wakes up early and watches MSNBC and reads the paper during nap time too.

Perry's Makeover

Mak: "Perry, are you ready for your makeoever?"
Perry: "Are you going to make me look like a rockstar!?!"
Mak: "Something like that....."

When Perry found out that we were having another girl, he broke down and was balling hysterically because he wanted a brother because "he didn't want to play dress up anymore." Poor little guy..... he does make a very pretty girl though.

Yesterday was a great day! It was fast sunday and Makayla and Perry wanted to bare their testimonies. They were so reverent walking up together and Makayla insisted that she help Perry. Bentley stood on my lap and screamed "I WAN TALK." She was very jealous, that girl can't wait to older and I so badly want her to slow down. It was such a special sacrament meeting. I love listening to children bear their testimonies. They totally make me feel guilty for not getting up their with them.

At the dinner table Mike asked who wanted to gave the prayer. Bentley raised her hand and shouted that "she wan do it." When we tried to help her she said "NO, I wan do it," and off she went. It started off so well.
"Headenly fader, thant you for my famidy. Thant you for church. Thant you for Kayda, Pewy, Tella, Mom, Dad, and Kayda. Thant you for I pway wit fwiends. Thant you Kayda" was quiet for a moment, she picked up her chocolate milk and started drinking. We all tried so hard not to laugh. She slammed down her sippy cup and kept praying. We all just started laughing and lost it. I think we could've kept it together if she hadn't slammed the sippy cup on the table and exhaled really hard. All that praying sure made her thirsty. Now we have to work on teaching her to be reverent again during her prayers. I love these little moments with my children, it makes all the hard work and weight gain so worth it.

Stella is talking up a storm now. She can't look at us without cooing and smiling. She takes her dear sweet time eating her bottle. She loves to gaze into my eyes and smile while eating. She is such a sweet little baby.

Whale Watching

My parents are in town for New Years and yesterday we decided to go whale watching. Seeing as though this was mine and Mikes fourth time going and we had never seen a whale we decided, lets go ahead and waste some more money! Thank goodness we were wrong about wasting money! We saw a grey whale as soon as we got out of Dana Point Harbor and followed it for about an hour. It was amazing! We saw his fluke twice. I can't believe that whales get bigger than this guy too! I learned that the blue whale gets to be 110 feet long and is the biggest mammal ever. It was such a beautiful sight. Bentley loved going on the boat and she has the best pair of sea legs I've ever seen. All morning long she kept saying "I wan go on da boat." We say dolphins and sea lions and a ton of pelicans. The dolphins jumped out of the water right next to where Bentley was standing on the boat and she freaked out. She was so excited to see them! Stella was not at all amused, she slept almost the whole time. We all had such a great afternoon on the boat together.

Mike and I got to go see "Have you Heard About the Morgans," last night. Since my parents have been here we have taken full advantage of them and have been sneaking in all the time we can have together as we can get. The line to get tickets was sooooo long! While we were standing in line Mike had the best idea ever! He decided to buy our tickets on Fandango and we'd showthem the confirmation. Well, for some reason it wouldn't let us buy tickets for the 7:05 show so we headed into guest services. The lady that was in front of us had gotten out of line and then returned. We let her cut in front of us since she was there and the line had grown about 5 more people. Out of the blue she handed us tickets to our movie. I insisted on going to the ATM and getting her money but she insisted that I didn't. I thought it was so nice of her and completely unnecessary. It made me feel good and I'm sure it made her feel great too. Thanks for treating us to a movie and a great date night!
