I'm not saying that we're never sad, or upset, or just not in the mood to be happy. But I am saying that my house functions best when it's full of laughter.
Ken and I love to joke with each other and with the kids. We don't tend to take things too seriously. The kids have grown up in a house full of word gags, silly movie quotes, and sarcasm. It brings me such joy to see them laughing together. In fact, I have lots of videos of just the kids laughing. That sounds just plain makes me happy.
