A Party Game!

*UPDATE* Apparently a year older doesn't make me any wiser. Lisa is absolutely right - I forgot to enable Comment Moderation so that y'all couldn't see all the answers... oops! Thanks Lisa - I fixed it. If you leave a comment with the answers, please also leave another one saying that you submitted them. And of course, any other comments just to make us laugh will be more than appreciated! :)

Do we really need an excuse to do a giveaway game? Cuz we’re not quite at a round number of posts, or a special hit counter number (though I am pretty darn excited that 50 of y'all actually follow us!)… Does turning a year older suffice? Yup, the lovely Pam outed me during a recent flashback post . Thanks a lot chica ;)

So, let’s have us a good old party game – with a more grown up prize that the whoopee cushions I gave out at Itty Bit’s birthday yesterday…

Howsabout a $20 Amazon giftcard? To the person who gets the most correct answers in this Scavenger Hunt, Bloggy Style. Or in case of a tie, the person who also manages to give us an exercise in bladder control.

Here’s 15 questions, with a hint of when it was posted. Just leave a comment with your answers sometime before Saturday night bedtime (which is usually pretty darn close to midnight here).

Come on, this will be fun!


Of the two horses, which one is the fraidy-cat? (March 2009)

Bonus points if you can tell which one is which in this shot!


What creepy-crawly did Itty Bit befriend in Hawaii? (May 2007)


What is Mr. Daddy’s favorite ice cream? (March 2008)


What was Mr. Daddy wearing when he and Rach first met? (October 2008)


What was Rach’s wrecked car’s name? (March 2008)


What melted in our last heat wave? (August 2008)


What did Rach’s dad do with her school supplies according to his letter to her at camp? (September 2008)


Which favorite candy of Itty Bit’s prompted an entire picture story? (October 2008)


What is Itty Bitty’s bedtime dance? No way we would have posted a video of it??? (November 2008)


What bit of wildlife did Mr. Daddy snap on his cell phone and submit as his SOOC contribution? (December 2008)


Which five guys joined Rach in the shower? (October 2008)


What’s happening in this picture? (April 2009)


What local natural disaster did Rach freak out about after New Year’s? (January 2009)


What dizzying job does Mr. Daddy get to perform? (February 2009)


How much did Itty Bitty weigh when we brought him home. (Tough question - tiny mention in July 2008)

And no, one of the questions is not "What is Rach's age?" Unless, of course, you want to tell me how young I look. Cuz that stinkin' Wii says I'm like 43 or something (quit laughing Mr. Daddy).

Have fun - and I hope this little adventure into our bloggy past doesn't you know, freak y'all out from still being our friends :)


Mr. Daddy said...

yes DEAR!! and the wii doesn't lie... does it???? although I think it said I was 41 or something like that...LOL

Rachel said...

Oooooh, I knew you were going to bring that up. I guess we kinda do that for eachother? You give me gray hair and I make you feel younger?

(by the way ladies, Honey Do lists make men feel younger ;)

Well, I know some but not nearly all! I'll try to come back and give it go a bit later. And really, expecting my memory to retain anything nowadays is asking a whole lot LOL!

So, I have to say you are so lucky. I just saw that you one that bag. Every time you have a giveaway you win something. Way to go.

Rachel said...

This is the original comment from Lisa that got deleted before comment moderation was turned on... sorry!

Lisa said:

1. Kona is the Fraidy Cat. Cassie Left; Kona Right.

2. Geckos

3. Ben & Jerry's Cherry Garcia

4. Welding coveralls, silly conductors hat & soot on his face. :)

5. Ducky

6. Butter

7. Mom gave them to an orphan, according to the outside of your dad's (cruel but funny) letter.

8. Peanut M & M's

9. Bedtime dance consists of hop/running in circles until he falls down.

10. owl

11. Chicka, Lightening McQueen, Snot Rod, Ramone & Sheriff

12. Blown egg tradition where you save all your egg shells (which you blow the egg out of) for the year, decorate, hunt and then smash eggs on each others heads. That is your aunt and her son, who is getting ready to "smash" her!

13. Flood where you live following a record snow.

14. One time he headed out to the mountain tops to help align a path for a new system that the tower monkeys are installing. Other times he gears up. He climbs towers. He gets to the dish that they have to work on. He ties off, and waits for the tech in the building to radio him to start aligning the dish. And sometimes pees in the woods or takes GREAT pictures from said towers. What is the actual name of his job? Couldn't find it. Did find all that other stuff, however. Fiber optics of some type, perhaps?
