2. What was your favorite summer memory of '05? Our beach trip in June. We have such a great time there each summer

4. Did you go to the beach a lot? Just once. :( I miss it ...

SEPTEMBER
1. Did you attend school/college in '05? No
2. Who is/was your favorite teacher? My 3rd grade teacher, Mrs. Heth/Blair (she married that year and changed her name).
3. Did you like fall better than summer? I loved the cooler weather, the changing leaves and the return to school.

2. Have you ever been kissed under mistletoe? I don't ever remember being kissed under the misletoe. Doesn't mean it hasn't happened though.
3. What did you want this year for Christmas? My ultimate gift (and I may as well just keep on wishing, because I'm not getting it anytime soon) is a Digital Rebel. *drool* But I also wanted clothes and got those.
4. What's the best present you ever got for Christmas? Chase was a Christmas Eve baby. 'Nuff said.
5. Do you like cold weather? Cold is fine. Much better than hot.
6. How would you rate your year on a scale of 1-10? Seven. Things are going good, but I know they are just getting better and better each year.
