Family Hodgepodge

Thank you to Jo for coming up with questions this week even though her daughter’s wedding was this past weekend!

For Hodgepodge Wednesday questions we were with all our kids and grands in Arizona, flying out later on Tuesday afternoon. I posed  some of these questions to them for fun.

1. What’s something we’d find you doing most afternoons?

Dear and I eat dinner most afternoons, not in the evening.

2. Who do you take after? In what way(s)?

I’m more like my mother, snarky but willing to feed a crowd.

Joshua takes more after me, more of a people person and more adventurous and willing to spend money. Dan is a mix of me and his dad, jumps in to get things done more introverted like his dad with the best one liners coming out of nowhere. Katie is mostly her dad, more introverted, the brightest in the bunch and smart cracking.

3. ‘After every storm comes a rainbow’ or ‘the calm before the storm’...which phrase do you relate to more right now? Tell us why?

Most of the group was ‘after every storm comes a rainbow’. I tend toward looking on the bright side and knowing things will turn out in the end. Because Jesus is our Savior and Lord we know who holds the future and that Hope brings us through the storms of life.

Our daughter says…”how about in the eye of the hurricane?”

4.What are your plans for the day after tomorrow?

We will be back home after a week in the sun trying to catch up with laundry and mail and bills, etc.

5. Complete this sentence-“After all is said and done_____________________.”

From Andrew: …naptime.

Laura: …it’s over.

Joshua: …atta boy.

Jamie: …,satisfied.

Ellen: …time to relax.

Greg: …I wouldn’t change a thing.

Katie: …the best is yet to come.

6. Insert your own random thought here.

The parties are over and it’s time to come back home to Winter…

About Ellen am a wife, mother, baba (grandmother) and a loyal friend. Jesus is my King and my hope is in my future with Him.

    • Sandi, no that is not our pool. Our son and his partners own a home in Arizona that they air bnb when they aren’t using it personally or for meetings. Our kids, grands and Dear and I just spent a week there.

  1. I think I need to go to Arizona and get into that pool! What a great spot right now. (although my dil says the covid numbers are over the top in AZ now)
    I love Katie’s answer to the last question! She always looks for the rainbow.

  2. Wherever you are looks fabulous! We need a sunshiny vacation : ) We are planning to attend a friend’s son’s wedding in Mexico in April, as long as the world does not get any crazier. Hope you had a wonderful time!

  3. What a fun way to answer the Hodgepodge! Looks like it was a wonderful time away as a family. Have a great rest of the week 🙂

  4. THAT’S where you’ve been?? In that pool?! Now that’s a vacation! Glad you had a great time. Loved your answers, especially #2, “Snarky but willing to feed a crowd.” 🙂
