      Questions from me!! 1: What is a surprising/awesome experience you have had in the last month? 2: What do you want for Christmas? 3: Have you ever broken any bones? (If not, LUCKY!) 4: Do you have any Christmas traditions? 5: If you could time travel, would you go to the past or the future? 6: (Riddle) If I wanted coal for Christmas, and I was bad, would I get it?

        My answers: 1: I giant hog escaped from the farm next door and it came up onto our porch and one of our neighbors called the police. My dad led it down the driveway with carrots and then my grandpa helped chase it down the street. It was awesome! :D 2: A Perplexus, or a 4x4 (kind of Rubik's Cube) 3: Yep! Broke my wrist, elbow, and fractured my ankle. Also got stitches and sprained by little toe. 4: We go caroling, pass out cookies, and basically dump our ornament boxes onto the tree. We hang big ornaments on the giant Christmas tree outside. 5: The past!! I want to see what people really thought of world problems and I want to witness history! 6: Your opinion! (There's not right or wrong answer, I think...)

            YO! I went to the KANSAS CITY CHIEFS game last night where they played the L.A. CHARGERS! it was a great game but the CHIEFS lost because of a few bad ref. calls and a sneaky touchdown by the chargers. The game ended 27-28 and KC lost. :( It was a good game tho and the Chiefs are still #1 in the league! Did you guys see the Dolphins beat the PATS?!? HILARIOUS! what's your favorite football team? I'm KC CHIEFS all the way BOI!!!
