  1. Nice great list, I shared a lot of this list with my kids when they were growing up.

  2. He is going to treasure those answers one day, I know it! My mom and dad filled out some books for my kids and they are so meaningful to me!

  3. HOw cool is this! I should do one for my son!! Love it!

  4. He is going to love having these and share them with his kids. Some of the list items would be difficult to answer for me. Neat idea though.

  5. Oh this is such fun! I will have to try to answer them on a blog post soon!

  6. I love things like this — I don’t know that I’ll get around to blogging it but I will definitely start answering these things for my children.
