An Interview

Recently, the author of, Jen (a.k.a. MOM) was able to catch up with the one and only Holland E. Wieber and she agreed to share some of her private thoughts about turning 5-years-old.

What's your favorite color, Holland? "Well, I like all the colors of the rainbow, and all the colors of the world. Isn't that a lot?"

Favorite food? "Corn pudding and corn chowder because they both have corn in them and they both taste good."

What do you like best about being in your family? "Reese is in our family. And I like math and coloring a lot and I love snuggling with mommy and I love daddy a lot."

What profession would you like when you are older? "I'm not sure--maybe a painter. What do you want to be when you get older, mom? Oh! I want to be a mom. I want to be a mom because you said it's a fun job."

What would you tell your younger friends about being a 4-year-old? "It's very fun because soon you'll get to be five."

You're turning five! What do you think is the best part of being five? "Being 5 will be fun because I might be able to ride my bike without training wheels just like Red Riding Hood does. All I need is a hood."

What are your favorite books? "The cat one, Cinderella, and my bible."

Favorite song: "Every Move I Make". It's a worship song. I learned it in Awana's."

What's your favorite Car? "A yellow convertible because they are fast. Faster than other cars. But Chelsea's car is the most fast." Hmmmmmmm. (Need more be said? Ok, here's more! :o)

Now that you are older, what do you think you could teach to other kids? "I think I could teach Reese about Jesus. And even Eva. I could teach her. Or actually they [Damie and Stephanie] can teach her. "

What are you hoping to learn this year? "I want to learn to write like Liv and draw gingerbread men and snowmen. "

Any other thoughts before we wrap up this interview, Holland? "I think I would like earrings. I've never tried them before. Oh--and, "Wowie Kaflowie".

And there you have it folks. A much sought-after interview from Holland Wieber herself.

Below you will see a few favorite pictures of the last year:

This year has been a big one for Holland and when I look at this picture, it tears me up every time.

Being a big sister for the first time suits her quite well. She took all the changes in stride and has been a protective, nurturing, helpful big sis.

Holland is always happy when there's soda present.

Holland's crazy side:

I'm so grateful for this daughter number 2. She is our family's goofball and prayer warrior all in the same breath...a compassionate, thoughtful, reflective, competitive, musical, artistic, fashion-forward little girl. I can barely believe she's five. I'm celebrating her beautiful life today and thanking God for giving her to our family. Say a little prayer with me today, will you? That Holland will grow up with a strong faith and compassion, and a joyful heart that just won't quit singing songs of gratefulness.

We love you Hollywags!
