Nate and Jessica said...

It seems like only yesterday that you and Ben met at my house...

emily and kevin griffin said...

Sarah Lunt said...

That is such a sweet post!

I love this. Here are a few of my favorites: that you learned about turtles in college...that you're really good at riding roller coasters and driving, that you'll become famous for being a princess and that you're not good at catching fly-away balloons...very telling. :) Thanks for sharing.

Annie said...

Hmmm... I wonder what Booker's favorite food is? I love that he really loves cleaning. Training them young, that's the way to do it.

Kara said...

I love it all - he is too flippin' cute, and I love Jessica's comment!

cheeks said...

this cracks me up! How funny will this be to him in 15 years when he reads it?! I didn't know you were so good at riding roller coasters...have you been doing a lot of that lately?!?!

kiki comin said...

only EMOTIONAL roller coasters, jami...and since he has seen it all, he was probably talking about that!:)

Sarah Walton said...

haha... this is too funny! What a cute idea. It'd be fun to see his answers to the same questions next year!

I laughed out loud when I read the "huggle" comment. I'm so grateful to be surrounded by amazing mothers who might also get a little scared of random events like dryers opening. Thanks for listening to my maniacal conversation.:) You're the best card maker ever.
