can never have enough it

“A day without laughter is a day wasted.” ~ (source is complicated)

In most things, I am always looking to simplify, purge and reduce. I tend to lean towards the idea that less is more. Of course, there are always exceptions. Laughter is one thing I am constantly looking to increase.  Some days laughter comes easy. Kids are getting along, funny things happen, laughter is the music in our home. Other days are hard. Fighting. Arguing. Selfishness.

I want laughter…more and more and more of it. Fill my home to the brim. Let it overflow and spill out.

While I am proactive about simplifying most things in our home, I am proactive about searching for ways to bring in more laughter. I look for funny videos, jokes my kids will be tickled by, and just trying to loosen up and be goofy alongside them. Last week I introduced them to a face swapping app. We spent a ridiculous amount of time swapping faces. We took up way too much memory on my phone. We laughed. Loud. Hard. Together.  And it was so good.


One kiddo was gone during our face swapping and live filter antics. I’ll be sure to introduce her to its disturbing wonderfulness. I bet you can’t guess which boy was most excited about the app…faceswap

I mean, how can you not laugh at this goodness? My face. My son’s head. Laughter is the best. I think Ellen would agree.EllensTwin

  • Debbie C - These are hilarious! I’ll have to try with my kids. Thanks for giving this sleep-deprived mom a good laugh. Btw…any tips on how to keep a 2year old in his toddler bed in the middle of the night would be most appreciated! Sigh.

  • Byron - That’s just scary! LoL! But obviously a ton of fun!

  • Brady W. - Hilarious! That one in the top middle kind of looks like Leonardo Dicaprio!

  • Debbie H - Hysterical. That app does a better job blending than some I’ve seen. And Little One is still rockin’ the bandaids. I’m sooo glad. Most things with kids change too fast. Glad she is holdin’ on there, but she looks very tall here. They are sure all growing up, as they are supposed to, but hard to watch for this person adverse to change. 🙂 I so appreciate you letting us watch the antics of your family and learn with you along the way.

  • Rae - LOL! Love it! face swap so creeps me out 😀

  • Kate @ Songs Kate Sang - Ellen would LOVE this. Just sayin’

  • Maureen - Our 19 year old was home on college spring break last week and made us all do it. Hysterical, some of them were truly frightening!!! My husband did it with our dog and we couldn’t stop laughing. Love these moments together as a family.

  • mandi@herbanhomestead - LOLOLOLOLOLOL!!! Oh man- that Ellen side by side made me laugh so hard! This app is a favorite in our home too. It’s pretty much the best.
