Laughter

A good laugh and a long sleep are the best cures in the doctor's book.
-- Irish Proverb



It's time for another I ♥ Faces entry! This week the theme is Laughter. It should be fun to see every ones entries!

But even more than the fun theme I'm excited about this week guest judge! The Pioneer Woman is joining in the fun and is going to be the one looking at and judging the winners! How cool is that?

The plan for today, after posting my laughter entries, is trying to make a gluten free version of her Yogurt Marmalade Cake.

But on to the photos...

Kids:


This is my darling little Ethan last week after a bath. He was all wrapped up in a towel and he's so ticklish I couldn't resist tickling his chubby little legs! I also couldn't resist trying to capture his adorable giggle



Adult:


A few years ago I flew out to Idaho to be in my friend Katy's wedding. I met her in England while I was going to bible school and she was in the same missionary training class as my future husband, Geoff. You can read about that in Part One of our story.

Katy is a lot of fun and you can always count on laughing a lot with her around.



A smile costs nothing but gives much. It enriches those who receive without making poorer those who give. It takes but a moment, but the memory of it sometimes lasts forever. None is so rich or mighty that he cannot get along without it and none is so poor that he cannot be made rich by it. Yet a smile cannot be bought, begged, borrowed, or stolen, for it is something that is of no value to anyone until it is given away. Some people are too tired to give you a smile. Give them one of yours, as none needs a smile so much as he who has no more to give.
