Off to College
I’ve had a difficult time wanting to write about Faith’s graduation. This year 2020 did its thing! At first her graduation and senior play were postponed. We were ok with that. The new dates, however coincided with new shut downs in our area. In the end, it was all canceled, and we couldn’t even have… [continue reading]

Happy 18th Birthday, Faith!

Bobby is seven years old! He’s the only one of my kids that was born after I started Laugh With Us Blog, and it’s amazing to see his whole story on the blog. I bet you’re right there with me, and can’t believe he’s seven either, right? 🙂 Our birthdays are usually pretty low key…. [continue reading]
Happy 10th Birthday, Little Jason!
For his ten year celebration Little Jason wanted nothing other than a hotdog and s’mores party with the immediate family. I usually try to put together some extra food and sides for a party, but after much questioning I could only get him to include pickles, Pringles, and a cheese ball.
