New Years Interview 2012

Happy New Year. Interviewing my children at the beginning of each year has become a tradition for us. This is the third year for me to do this. It is really fun to see what things have changed and what has stayed the same. The boys really enjoy doing this and I love that I have a record of their thoughts and favorite things from each year. You can read the last two years here and here. The first one I ever did was when they were 2 and 3 and it's hilarious to go back and read now.

This year Sawyer is 5.5 and Jaxon is 4. Without further ado, here is our 2012 interview.

2011 was a great year. It was the year the Lord led us to our daughter. It was the year we got to meet her and legally become a family of 5. Now, we are looking forward to 2012. Next year I will have three little ones to interview. Happy New Year to you and yours!


  1. I LOVE this!!! What a great idea! Okay, your little Jaxon reminds me so much of Toben (who will be 4 in 2 months.) Toben is OBSESSED with superheroes--but he really knows nothing about them. Superman and Spiderman are his favorites. I grew up with all sisters so this boy stuff is all new to me--and I LOVE it! :)

    Love their long-term plans to live with you, too! :)

  2. So cute!!! Love this idea - I may have to try it myself! :) l'm a scrapbooker, so I try to collect funny things that my kids say and put them into albums. They love to look back and laugh at themselves!

  3. The People of WalMart... No judgement!!!! Just laughing really hard. HA!!!!
