The Kids Behind The Blog

I can't believe this is the last "The Kids Behind The Blog" for 2016!!!  I am really loving this link up and it's proving to be a really great way to document Noah throughout the course of a year.  I really love recording our interviews on video because it really shows his personality, growth, and speech development.  And this month you even get to hear him sing!  And I hope you love Christmas as much as we do, because not only are all the questions Christmas related, but we have 10 questions this month instead of our usual 5!

As much as I love asking Noah the questions each month, I also have so much fun reading what your and my co-hosts' (CrystalBethJessicaStephanie) kids have to say each month! And in case you are new to the linkup, here's a little background information. We came up with this idea because we are such huge fans of Betsy's "The Guys Behind the Blog" (which I've heard rumors will be brought back very soon by some of my favorite blogging friends!) and wanted to create something similar to do with the "kids that made us mamas".  Each month, we have a set of questions to ask our kid(s) and we will share their answers on our blogs. We sure hope that you will do the same and link up with us each month! We can't wait to read what your kids have to say!

This month's questions were:

1.) Which reindeer is your favorite?
2.) What do you want for Christmas?
3.) What would you do if you caught Santa at your house?
4.) What if Santa got stuck in your chimney?
5.) Do you want it to snow on Christmas? Why or Why not?
6.) Have you been naughty or nice this year? Why?
7.) If Santa asked you to fly in his sleigh with him would you do it?
8.) What is your favorite Christmas movie?
9.) If you could change the color of Rudolf's nose what color would you make it?
10.) Sing me one Christmas Carol (then note which song they pick and how they sing it. This could be funny because kids are always mixing up lyrics!)

I did end up mixing the order up a little bit.  I figured once he told me his favorite reindeer was Rudolph, I might as well follow up with the other Rudolph question.  I'm honestly not surprised at all by any of his answers this month.  I loved how practical he was if Santa got stuck in the chimney.  And clearly we need to watch some more Christmas movies!  But my favorite part, as I knew it would be, was him singing the Christmas songs.  I could listen to him sing all day!

I'd love for you to share what your kids had to say this month. Just grab our button and link up at the bottom of the post! Also make sure to stop by CrystalBethJessica, and Stephanie's blogs to see how their cute kids answered!

And as for next month, the link up will go live on January 11th

January Questions:

1.) What's your favorite thing to do or play inside?
2.) Have you ever seen or played in snow? If so, what's your favorite snow activity? 
3.) What was your favorite Christmas or holiday gift you received? 
4.) What's your favorite winter vacation you went on? Why? 
5.) Would you rather live where it's warm all year round or have the seasons?

And I'm very excited to that we are continuing The Kids Behind The Blog in 2017!  It will still be on the second Wednesday of each month, on the following dates:

January 11 | February 8 | March 8 | April 12 | May 10 | June 14
July 12 | August 9 | September 13 | October 11 | November 8 | December 13


  1. Oh sweet Noah and his singing!! What is it about kiddos singing that just melts their mommas? :) I loved these questions so much!

  2. Adorable! The singing was my favorite. My 3 year old did her own thing, which cracked me up. You never know what they'll say.

  3. I love that he thought to have the reindeer help getting Santa unstuck, so clever Noah. I also love that he started with the hippopotamus song, baha ha!

  4. I'm so happy that the link up will continue next year!

  5. Little kids singing is just the sweetest. Kinsey has her school Christmas concert tonight and Im so excited! So glad this link up is continuing next year.

  6. I love love love his singing! Friend, he is so precious. I just adore him.
