Happy Birthday, Anna

Yesterday was our 12th grandchild and 5th granddaughter's 10th birthday!  And tonight I conducted a short phone interview with Anna which was lots of fun because she was very chatty.
Here's how that interview went:
So for 5 days every year, you and Noah are the same age.  Do you like that?  Nope!  Why not?  Because it makes me look younger.  And you want to be older?  Yes, Yes I do.  How old do you want to be?  Just older than Noah.
Did you do anything special for your birthday?  Yes, yes I did.  What did you do?  I had a sleepover with my friends. 
Did you stay up late? Til 11:30ish.  And did you all sleep in today?  Yes til 8:07ish.

How do you like being a big sister to 3 younger siblings?  Fine.  What do you like about it?  I like to boss people around.  Do they like that?  No.  But, Eli doesn't really care.  He's like 'okay'!  
Do you like school?  Yes!  No!  Not at all.  Why not?  Cause it takes up like the whole week of my time just to learn stuff I already know. And I have to get up really early.  What's your favorite subject?  Going home. 
Seriously.  History.  Pioneer era.  Oh!  So the Little House on the Prairie books that you got from your mom and dad for your birthday were perfect for you!  Yes!  I'm still on the first book and the first time I took it to school there were Oreos that I forgot about in my backpack and my water leaked and now the pages are all brown.  But it's okay.
What's your favorite thing to do in your free time?  Play with my friends and go on my Ipod.  And my friends got me this really cool art set and I like to play with that.  It's like a suitcase full of it literally. And I like chewing gum.
 What do you like best about the Christmas House?  Seeing all my cousins.  And staying up on New Year's Eve.
What do you want to be when you grow up?  I don't know.  Either a singer, a waitress, or a cashier.
What have I forgotten to ask you?  What my favorite kind of gum is.  And what is it?  EXTRA Root Beer Float.  There's also Water Melon Fruit Punch and Orange Cream Bar.  They're all really good and my friends got me fruity stripe gum. It's awesome.
What else?  How much do I like One Direction.  How much do you like One Direction?  A lot a lot a lotRight now I'm wearing my One Direction shirt, my Niall necklace, and I'm thinking of One Direction songs.
Did you hear about the ice storm that's supposed to happen tomorrow.  Between 2 and 3 pretty much we're supposed to get freezing rain.  Which reminds me of another question.  What's your favorite channel on TV?  The Weather Channel!  They just came out with Coast Guard Florida and it's awesome.  And they already had Coast Guard Alaska but it's grosser.
And that was about it.  With some kids it's hard to get the shortest answer but I think I could have chatted with Anna all night.  She's funny and quirky and sweet and we're wishing her a very happy late birthday - maybe one that lasts all year!!
