Laughter Through Tears

Truvy said it best, "laughter through tears is my favorite emotion." So that's what we've been trying to do around here. It's definitely difficult. The tears still come and I'm sure they will for a while to come. But in the meantime, we're trying to laugh. Laugh at all of the things Oscar the Boxer had done. And laugh in general. And these pics make me laugh.

1. Sophie B. being put in timeout at the beach for throwing sand. You may not find it funny and neither does she, but trust me, if you're there it's hilarious. The pouting, oh my the end of the world is coming pouting.



2. Taking pictures of 7 kids is IMPOSSIBLE. We hired a professional this year and it will be a miracle if he managed to get any with all of the kids looking at the camera. 


I like how in this one, Sammi's head looks as though it's gonna pop off her little body. Needless to say, she had had enough by this point.


3. The General Freakin' Lee.  Seriously folks. This is what you see in a  Small Town America Forth of July parade. It came complete with the Dixie horn. 


4.  And finally, is three too young for a tat? I think she pulls it off quite well. 


And in case you can't see if very well, here's an up close shot.


Laughter. The best medicine, right?

So sorry to hear about Oscar.
I love the tat :-) She can really pull it off -- watch out teenage years!

Who chose the shoulder for spongebob to land on? That is too funny- unless she decides she wants to make the look permanent in about 15 years! I foresee timeout at the beach for us for a similar offense- thanks for planting that in my head!

I agree about laughter as a best medicine, too.

Time out on vacation is a serious thing, so I'm sure that she was probably in the right with her pouting! :) And I love the tat- like father, like daughter!

I like your attitude. It's hard but it's about all you can do in the light of this sort of tragedy.
