The Kids Behind The Blog | January 2017

I'm so excited that we are continuing "The Kids Behind The Blog" in 2017!!!  We even got a new graphic for the new year... and I'm loving it!!!  It really is one of my favorite link ups!  I really love recording our interviews on video and documenting his personality, growth, and speech development.

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.) 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?

1. Board games... not at all surprised since we play them a lot!  And his favorite board game... absolutely cracking me up!
2. This was funny since we had just come inside from playing in the snow. And yet he couldn't remember that we just went sledding!
3. I love that he had to show off his favorite new toys!
4. This definitely required some prompting, so who knows what he would have come up with otherwise.
5. This answer shocked me!  Especially since he always says winter is his favorite season!

And he wanted me to ask him an extra question.  I was definitely not prepared, but I liked his answer :)

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 February 8th

February Questions:
1) What does the word love mean to you?
2) Kids choice! How do you want to spend Valentine's Day?
3) Do you have a Valentine? If so, who?
4) How many days are in the month of February?
5) How do you show someone you love them?

I'm so excited that we will be continuing on in 2017 and really hope you will follow along and link up!  As always, it will be on the second Wednesday of each month, on the following dates:

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


  1. Board games are a favorite here too. We play them a ton and it's so fun! Cam forgot that we went sledding too. Silly boys!

  2. Noah is just so cute and always leaves a smile on my face. We have been playing A LOT of board games lately too. We got 3 or 4 for Christmas and it has been non stop. Which reminds me, we need to clean out our games...

  3. I can’t get enough of the Noah videos! He makes my heart smile. I love that he had to show you his favorite Christmas gifts. I want to come sledding with you guys! Mason’s answer to the seasons question surprised me as well. He is like his Daddy and likes the sun, sand and ocean. I thought for sure he’d say where it’s warm all the time. But, maybe he is more like me than I thought.

  4. We are just now getting into board games with our oldest. It has been a lot of fun to do! Thank you for hosting another great link up!

  5. I keep saying it but I need to do this with my kiddos next month! Love his answers! Mousetrap is my sons favorite game and I secretly cannot stand it LOL

  6. You guys do go on pretty awesome warm weather vacations! Maybe next time you can take me along haha.

  7. I could chat with him all day! What a sweetheart!

  8. Noah is SO CUTE! My Sam loves Mouse Trap too! Such a great idea to video the q&a. Stopping by from the link-up.
