Answer Me This - Hats off to our veterans

Happy Memorial Day! Thank you veterans…


1. Beach or Mountains? Where would you rather be?



Beach. Well at least 3/5 of our family would vote for the beach. M has never been and when we go this year she'll probably be consuming a good amount of sandy goodness. So we'll count her. so 80% of Hurricane Kibbe likes the beach. Here is why the other 20% percent who is more like 75% of the vocal-decision making portion of the family CANNOT STAND THE BEACH:

1. It is hot
2. It requires being outside
3. It is sandy

Now on the surface you'd think my husband is a bit loco. But I can at least see his point of view. He works outside in the 80-100 degree heat for 9-13 hours a day, six days a week for several months out of the year so his line is "Why would I want to stay a vacation to the beach where it is hot and sandy and I am outside when I am around that EVERYDAY for work." Points taken. 





HOWEVER, we went to the beach growing up every summer. Same beach. Same house. Good times. Fortunately Grammy and Grandpa Joe still go to the beach (I think mostly at E's request) so we tag-a-long. 

We {heart} grandparents : ) {and Uncle Kev}



2. Which is more fun: Christmas Eve, or Christmas morning? 

Fun? Fun.. Now that is interesting. Christmas Eve means lots of packing up, and writing random Christmas tunes according to me, and church. I really like our Christmas Eve church service - vespers + Liturgy + feast afterward with Christmas carols. I still really like it but you know with kids.. they are kind of game changers so it is just different.

Christmas morning is great. We wake up at my parents house and the girls are not overly anxious to be the first downstairs at 4 am. Probably because we are not a Santa Claus-ing family. This year E kinda rush some of the present opening but it was still nice and manageable. 

Pretty much sums up x-mas 2013

It is worth noting I also really like the second day of Christmas when we go to Jibbe's house and celebrate Christmas with the Kibbe side of the family. No rushing around on the day. No choosing where we have to go the next year. 

3. What’s the most embarrassing childhood outfit you remember wearing?

Don't know if this counts but for Old Fashion Schools Days in the second grade I had to wear a dress and bonnet (or some other head piece) and I cried so hard about having to wear it and my parents still have a picture framed on their mantle of me sulking before school. 

4. Your house is quiet, you don’t have to do work (housework included). What do you do?

I'm working on this for Lee:




I've don't more just haven't post it




Somehow I am lacking a picture of this stocking actually backed


But I really need to get with the program and just finish Lee's already because I need to do M's. 

Maybe this year Lee will actually rig up some sort of hook and line for the stockings at our house {ehem} because this year he definitely didn't {ehem.. yeah I just called you out! : ) love you} 


5.  What movie do you want to watch when you’re feeling under the weather?

Not into movies. Sorry. I'd rather watch House Hunters on HGTV. 


6. Did you have an American Girl doll when you were little? If so, which one?

Yes. Samantha anad Molly. Yes they are still around my parents waiting for the right time to come out for the girls but I imagine it will be another 5+ years, right? When do girls get 'into' American Girls?
