M: Time for our annual (or every other annual lately) interview kid....let's begin. What's the coolest thing you've done this year?
J: UNIVERSAL STUDIOS!
M: What was so cool?
J: Everything! The rides, the movies that it makes. And that's all.
J: Work 3 and a half hours everyday!
M: But wasn't it worth it?
J: NO. Yea, I learned not to steal money and learned how to work for it.
M: Ahh, good. Good boy. Who's your best friend this year?
M: Ahh, good. Good boy! What's the coolest thing you've learned this year?
J: I learned how to make chocolate chip cookies and how to not get my mom mad.
M: Did you really? When was the last time I was mad at you?
J: A few days ago.
M: So still a work in progress? For both of us?
J: yea (laughing)
M: What do you hope to accomplish this next year?
J: Make a goal in soccer. I've never done that before.
M: You'll do it. You're awesome! What else? this is your big "deacon" year...you should have lots of priesthood/righteous man goals.
J: I want to work on learning the scout oath and scout law. I need to work on being awesome so I can get the priesthood.
M: Where do you think we should go this next year?
J: Knottsberry farm!
M: Why?! You like it better than Universal Studios?
J: Oooh yea!
M: What do you like the most about your family?
M: That's not true, or you'd be a little nicer to a certain someone (hint: she's 10) and you'd be a little more obedient. What's your real favorite thing?
J: Oh my gosh! Come on! I like that they're really talented, and know how to bake good food and they're really active.
M: What do you think we need to do more as a family this year?
J: We need to exercise more.
M: We go on more family walks than anyone I know...I don't htink we need to improve on that one.
J: I know, that's why we're a healthy family, but we need to do more active stuff as a family.
M: What's your favorite movie?
J: Nacho Libre
M: Good answer kid.
J: Anaconda Squeeeeeeze!
M: Alright, I love you a lot.
J: I love you too mom (laughing). Mom, you're so great! (fake laughing)
