Although I was studying while watching this movie last night, and when
goose died I thought it was maverick... I loved this movie, and

"There are hearts breaking wide open all over the world tonight,
because unless you are a fool, that boy is off the market,
he is 100% prime time, in love with you!"

the princess is 2.

saylor jane. i love say. say. because she lets me paint her nails, curl her hair, and gloss her lips. she drools m&m's three hours after you give them to her, and her voice is a constant whisper. she loves her older brother river, and will do anything he does when most the time what he does doesn't make sense.. and she understands that. to most, she seems fragile, but she can definitely hold her own. i love say. say. because she always makes me laugh.
