E turned 3! A Birthday Boy Questionnaire

In the midst of our move and welcoming our newest addition, E turned 3!

During the week of E's birthday, I worked away on a little questionnaire with him. I've seen a number of birthday interview ideas and thought this was an awesome tradition to start. My inspiration came rom this "21 questions to ask your kids" and this "20 Questions: Birthday Q & A Album". Since he is only three, it was a little tough to keep his interest at this "game", so I ended up asking a few questions each night.  Some went unanswered so I'll save them for next year.
