One of the things I totally love about my family is that we laugh a LOT. I think maybe it’s because our humble beginnings were founded on laughter. When I met Tom over 24 years ago (yes, we just celebrated our 21st anniversary a couple weeks ago!) we were drawn together in English 101 and he would make me hysterical over his jokes and humor. I truly did marry one of the funniest people I have ever met and he still prides himself on being able to come up with a new joke that will get me rolling and crying.
So throughout the days our family spends a lot of time laughing together and recently the kids have learned to play jokes on one another. Have you ever played that game where you latch onto some random and silly thing and begin to hide it? It may take a few days of even weeks but it eventually gets found and then it’s your turn to hide it somewhere. It’s usually Tom and I that do this game but now we have a whole family game going.
Over the Summer Tom picked up a rubber snake at a garage sale for the one purpose of hiding it in the kids sleeping bags on our camping trips. The whole 25 cents it cost us was too good a deal to pass up. Somehow the snake came to light and has been found in different places around the house. Well, it was my turn today!!
For some reason, this was still startling! I’m looking forward to seeing who gets in the shower first tomorrow, because they are gonna have a nice Sneaky surprise.
