ENQUIRING MINDS WANT TO KNOW - Week 9

 
  
No, I am not a new Tabloid Reporter, but it is a feature so 
that we can all get to know each other better.  
Last week I asked questions about keeping or dumping this feature and after all your wonderful comments and suggestions I am thrilled to continue "Enquiring" to help us get to know each other better. 

The one BIG change is that this feature will be open from Thursday at 12:01 A.M. and close on Monday at 11:59 P.M. to allow those that want to participate over the weekend the opportunity to do so when they have more time.  So you may want to check back on Tuesday or check the previous week's link on Thursday to view everyone's answers.

I will also add the links to all previous weeks at the bottom of the post for those who missed a week or two and want to catch up on everyone's answers.  To do that please link up using the actual post link  instead of the link to your entire blog so people can find your "Enquiring" posts easier. 

If you are a follower without a blog please continue to posts your answers in the comment portion of your favorite blog.  The comments will show up with the blogs weekly posts so it is possible to catch up on your answers too.

If you are just joining this feature 
WELCOME!!!!! 
We all become friends/followers but most of us will never meet in person, this feature is to help us all get to know each other better.


Each Thursday I will post 3 questions for you to answer that you can copy and post on your blog with your answers. 

You don’t have to be a blogger to participate either. I will be using a Linky List for the blogs to use to participate and follow each other around to get to know each other, but if you are not a blogger just answer the questions in the comment section following the post on your favorite blog. Please feel free to click on the links and visit other blogs too. 

This way we not only get to know other bloggers, 
we get to know our followers too.
I am really excited about this meme 
and hope many more people will join the fun.

Are you interested?
WEEK 9 QUESTIONS
  1.  WHAT IS YOUR FAVORITE HOLIDAY?
  2.  ARE YOU DRESSING UP FOR HALLOWEEN? IF YES, AS WHAT?
  3.  IF YOU HAVE KIDS ARE THEY DRESSING UP? AGAIN IF YES, WHAT ARE THEY DRESSING UP AS?
 Now be sure to copy and paste the information and your answers into your blog, then come back to link up, so we can come to your blog and read your answers.

I hope you will come back to this meme every week and tell your friends so we can all get to know each other better and get the answers to all the questions 
Enquiring Minds Want To Know!!  

MY ANSWERS:
1. WHAT IS YOUR FAVORITE HOLIDAY?

My favorite holiday is the 4th of July because the fun usually stretches from by birthday on July 1 through the 4th depending on what day of the week the 4th actually falls on.  The parade, the many fireworks shows and a family cookout at my mother-in-law's highlight this whole entire time.

2. ARE YOU DRESSING UP FOR HALLOWEEN? IF YES, AS WHAT?
Nope, just wearing my usual gray haired old lady costume I wear everyday to pass out candy to all the kids dropping by.  I love seeing their costumes. 

3. IF YOU HAVE KIDS ARE THEY DRESSING UP? AGAIN IF YES WHAT ARE THEY DRESSING UP AS?
My grandson is dressing up as Optimist Prime from Transformers, my 17 year old has purchased a scary Jester's costume for work and school, my 19 year old daughter is going shopping today, but it is sure to be something girly like a princess, my oldest daughter has purchased a neon pink and neon green wig for her work party and to wear as she takes Kaden trick or treating, not exactly sure what she has planned.  It should be an interesting week and weekend.
These are not my actual kids just pictures from the internet :)


Now it's your turn!

Maria, too funny!!

Carol, just a little tweak, hope It helps!!

Mari said...

1. Favorite holiday is definitely Christmas--spirit of the season and falalalala.

2.No costume, but it's important to me to be home to hand out treats.

3. The grandmonsters are each some superhero or another, but my daughter goes all out every Halloween, usually as a version of Michael Jackson. Hope everyone has fun!

1. Christmas because everyone is SO happy! I am already humming carols in my head!

2. I am going as a Mommy and Sarah told me that I need to carry around paper towels so that people know :-)

3. Sarah is a pink tulip and EMily is a Cat for when we go outside and a Princess when we go to the mall. We got this really old blue lace dress at a flea market for a buck and she has been dying to wear it. Our black lab is going as a skunk! I am painting a little white on him with some white hair spray that the girls are using!!!

Ericka, sound like lots of fun!!!

Mari, Grandmonsters, love that term. I definitely have one and he is so naughty lately, staying with his other grandparents tonight and I am thankful for the break, but he will probably be an angel for them.
