My Name is Not Reagan

Reagan Mulan1 BLOG
About a month ago, while I was with the ladies who attended the workshop weekend, Pat introduced Sarah and Reagan to the movie Mulan.
I came home that Sunday late in the afternoon to find both of the girls curled up in my bed watching it.
Since that day, I think it would be safe to say Reagan has watched it no less than 25-30 times.
She is completely obsessed with it and now actually recites parts of the movie as she is watching it.
It is cute and kind of scary at the same time...... we call it her "Mulan trance".
The other night, way past her bedtime, I caught her at the foot of my bed once again mesmerized by Mulan.
I called her name and she would not answer me. I thought it was that selective hearing again,
but a few moments later she turned to me and said, "my name is not Reagan, my name is Mulan".
So I guess if I want her attention, I have to call her by her new name.
Oh this girl....she keeps us on our toes and makes us smile at the same time.
I see a trip to the disney store in our future.
This is a costume we have yet to add to our collection.
Happy Friday Friends!
~Hope you all have a wonderful weekend~

For those of you that are photography fanatics, settings for this photo were f1.4 SS 1./100th and ISO 10,000
It is really amazing what some of these cameras can do in extremely low light conditions.
The room was literally pitch black, except for a small ray of light coming from the TV.
