Now your turn to try it. . . if you dare! :)

Happy Thursday,



  1. I loved it! I'm about to post the next round. I should have been all smart like you, and put all the kids answers on one.

    Dummy me. ;)

  2. That was super-cute Heather. I might have to try this with my kids...but I'm kind of afraid to! ;)

  3. I love this. . If I had a blog, I would do it too. . ;)

  4. I loved it. In fact I'm still smiling. Good dad could pick up a job quick. They surely know you love them and in many ways, they really do know you.

  5. This is a very cute idea. I wonder what my "boys" would say. They are quite a bit older :)

    I just wanted to come over and thank you for stopping by just to say something nice. I appreciate that. I hope you have a wonderful weekend with your family. Maybe some Chinese :)

  6. I love the picture of your family on your header. We must have the same barber! :)

    your blog is great. I especially like the snowflakes - since I'm in FL and it's in the 70's today, windows open, breeze blowing - perfect for Saturday yardwork. Unfortunately, if this is what it's like now - at the end of winter - we probably have a hot spring coming, then a horrid summer!

    I appreciated your comment on my comment :0
