Who are you from...?

Rachel has discovered a game we end up playing a lot... she'll come up to us and ask one of two questions...

"Can you guess who I am from ________?"
"Who are you from ________?"

The blank will always be filled with the name of a Disney movie. Or now Pixar movies, too, because I don't know a lot of the characters in the Disney movies she watches.

If it's the first question, the answer is always "Belle" or "Aurora" or "Nala." If it's the second question, you can either directly answer "Bullseye," "Gaston," "P.T. Flea." or "Luigi" or you can let her guess.

We play this game a lot.

He is really a joy to have in our lives.
