Happy Birthday, Evan

Last year on this date, I did this post about Evan. This year I did a short phone interview. We're here in the wilds of Nebraska for Evan's cousin's graduation party so this post might be just a little disjointed.

Are you excited to be 14?
Yeah, I am. I’m going to be the same age as all my friends at school
What did you like about being 13?

Being a teen.

What did you dislike about being 13?

All the extra homework.

What do you want to be when you grow up?
I’m actually leaning toward acting.

What kind of books do you like to read?
The books that kind of make sense but they still tell a really good story – Fantasy types like Harry Potter, Star Wars and Leven Thumps. I already completed all 5 books of the Leven Thumps series.

Of all the places you’ve lived with your Dad in the Army, which is your favorite and why?
Well I really liked it in Kansas and Georgia because I got to live near the other Hibners
What's your favorite subject in school?

That would have to be Drama Class.

What’s your favorite animal?
The red eyed tree frog. I did a report about them a long while back in Louisiana and they’ve been my favorite animal ever – ever since.
A long time ago, your Dad told me that you play very involved video games where you plan and run a city? What’s that called and do you still do that?

Oh yeah. Those are like the best games ever. One that I play is called Empire Earth.

What are your plans for the summer?

Just relaxing and going on vacation – Disney was awesome Best vacation ever? Yes, definitely

What’s your favorite holiday?
Christmas It’s a really happy time and I like getting presents too

Do you like being part of such a large family?
Yes, ‘cause they’re so many cousins to hang out with.

Do you have a favorite cousin?
I can’t choose ONE. I like them all.
So in closing, I'll think back to when Evan was younger and all he wanted in the world was to be a big brother. And he's been an awesome big brother (and little brother) ever since!

Here's wishing the happiest birthday ever to one of the most awesome grandsons ever. Happy Birthday, Evan!
