Favorite Things 2010 - WBB 3.5 years old

To give you some background, I have VERY fond memories of my dad pulling out a spiral notebook at the dinner table and going around the room asking my brother and sister and me all about our favorite things. He 'd write the answers down and note the date and our age at the time of the interview. We did this about 2 or 3 times a year and each time we'd open the notebook, everyone got a kick out of what they said when they were 6, 7, 8, etc. years old. I consider that childhood memory as one of my most "favorite things" about my dad.

So, this afternoon I decided to ask William the same questions again and see how much things have changed for the young lad.   The last interview was Dec. 3rd, 2009 when William was 2.5 years old.  

I wrote down exactly what he said for each answer even though I think some of them are not as accurate as they should be. But, some of the random answers are exactly what make this interview such a fun memory.
