Well, that was fun! When we were done, Elise asked if I had anymore questions for her. I think she enjoyed being interviewed. I think it would be fun to revisit this meme every year, just to see how her answers change.


  1. I WAS going to TAG you if I can ever nail Sugar down for an interview....

    Elise is a CUTIE :)

  2. There were many answers that were my favorite...but my favoritest favorite is her greatest wish being chocolate.

    Right now...10pm in front of my computer on a Friday night...I would have to agree!

  3. me too...about the chocolate, can I specify for dark, please?!
    Your daughter is so adorable. I love how she wants to be an animal when she grow up...Isaac has told me he wants to be a bird. I love their precious young minds!

  4. So sweet! I love a peek into their little minds. Thanks for sharing!

  5. There were a few answers that were my favorite...Definitely the "Tiger" when she grows up...and the scared of "monsters and gorillas" was quite insightful.

    My favorite...and oh so true is. "Elise is Elise..." Come on people, how freakin' deep is that?!

    Love to you and the family this w/e Joanne.

  6. She wants to be a tiger so she can scare the gorillas :)

    I think it would be fun to revisit every year also.

  7. Finally high and low numbers that I can make sense off...thanks Elise my half Canadian sweetie!!

    So cute and I think re-visiting this meme in a year would be a wonderful idea!
