This is fun! Noah's favorite color is yellow too, I had to share that with him.

Also, I had to google Birch Beer. I'd never heard of it before.

Boquinha said...

Ohhhhh, when you guys visit, we'll have to have some. It's much better than root beer, in my opinion. We like the white birch beer best. :)

Vivian said...

I love lists like these. Awesome kids.

Gypsy Schoolhouse said...

Awww. You guys would be our favorite houseguests too. If we had a house. If you could come to it, haha! I feel like I know both of you better now!
