  1. Nicely done! The kids got a lot of the answers close to what Dave said!

  2. You know I'm a fan of these posts! Love the stuff they know so well. Will use this at some point!

  3. Love it! I enjoy these types of post so much and have these questioned bookmarked to ask my kids for their dad's birthday since I missed father's day.

  4. This was awesome to read- love how well your kids know Dave!

  5. Always love these! "Admitting Mommy was right" - DYING of laughter. Also, please elaborate on Dave's favorite holiday being St Patrick's Day? It seems so random for a favorite!


Thank you for being interested in my life as I blog it and for leaving a comment. Comments make me happier than reading a good book and drinking a cold Coke. Almost :)
