Laughter. It Keeps Us Young!

My three 3-year-olds came to me and asked for gum.  I told them I thought I had some and got my monstrous purse.  I searched for the gum, while the three were waiting in anticipation.  During my search, which required a head lamp, I happened upon my camera that was hiding in the cavernous bag.  I turned on the camera and told the girls that I thought I found the gum!  I pulled it out and started taking pictures.  The girls, caught by surprise, laughed loud and hard.



(She gets carried away with the candy she eats)

We've been told that laughter keeps us young.  Victor Hugo said this about laughter:

"I like the laughter that opens the lips and the heart,
shows at the same time the pearls and the soul"

"Laughter is the sun that drives winter
from the human face"

I hope we all have a good laugh today!

That is hilarious!
What a cute idea to find a camera in the cavernous purse and start snapping.
The faces of those darlings is absolutely priceless.
Way to go grandma!

Did they ever get some gum?
Hope so!

LOL I loved this, I felt like I was there laughing too! As for Nauvoo..I want to go with you! I would love to live there I think, except for the winters. It was the second time for me and it has really stayed in my heart. If you have time go see my posts..I think 4 of them..last October, it will help you as to what to see. :D

Love the pics, and was also wondering if the girls were lucky enough to get some gum.
I am looking forward to doing some laughing when I get home and visit with my friends.

Such precious little faces! Perfect surprise.

Kelly said...

What cutie pies! I love the last one, that is a seriously messy face.

They are so fun! They must keep you young too!

I would cry even more than I do now if I couldn't laugh instead.

Those are some cutie patooties.

Jenny said...

It has been a long weekend. I need a good laugh!

Such cuties!

I love that candy-crusted face of C8's! I have some fun pics of these same 3 engaging in a "Troy-Boy sandwich". They sure know how to have a good time!:)

Tracy said...

I've said it before and I'll say it again...You're posts are always good for a smile!! You must be one fun Grandma!!

I couldn't agree more. Whomever said, "Laughter is the best medicine" knew what they were talking about.
I love the kind of laughing that makes ones sides hurt afterward. Makes me feel like I did ab crunches, then I don't actually have to do any.

Natalie said...

What cuties. I think Kels looks a lot like you----a lot.

Fun pictures.

Yvonne said...

I love this so much.

Laughter is EVERYTHING.

Thanks for posting something so fun.

Rebecca said...

I'm laughing so hard at C8's mouth. Lydia can't keep her candy inside her mouth either. It always ends up clear up to her cheeks and even nose!

karen said...

Sweet faces (one literally). I love to have a good laugh myself.

If that is the case, everyone in my family is going to live to 110.

So did you find the gum?

Nancy Face said...

They're so cute!

I pretty much LOVE that you used a head lamp to search your purse! Haha! :D

Kerin said...

Thanks! I needed this :)
I have lost my laughter lately, and needed a good laugh. Hope you have a great week!
