Such a great idea! Kelsea will not have answer #13! I love Alla's #15...sweet & funny!

I'm so going to save that for when my boys understand. I love #9 since that's all mamas do is look for their babies.

So fun! I started this with Kendyl today and we only made it to #12..will have to finish tomorrow. I am going to post on my blog as well. :)

That was pretty funny. I read it to Jared and he kept laughing. He liked that you would be Obama. I do see the similarities! =D

Megan said...

Alla, you are too funny. I didn't know your favorite place to shop was the grocery store. HAA

this totally made me laugh out loud :)
i love it.

Norina said...

YES! I love that she is an Obama fan too :0) Hee hee on your job being "making dinner". Some friends of mine on a site I chat on did this awhile back and every single kid "showed" how tall their moms were with their cute, must be a kid perceptual thing.
