Ice Breaker: What Story Makes Your Family Laugh Every Time You Tell It?

My family is known to be somewhat off of our collective rockers. Even though my kids are adults (they still live at home thanks to the pandemic and other life situations, not that Mama is complainin' ;) ), we still have dinner together most nights of the week. Often, they end up being hour-long laugh sessions with more and more ridiculous comments being tossed around. Joking with each other and pranking has a long history too. A few years ago, there was an incident that we are sure will be part of family canon for a long time. For the sake of family-friendliness here, I will leave it at a prank involving a pocket knife and a toilet bowl and the pocket knife almost ended up getting flushed. However, every time this story gets recounted, my daughter ends up laughing so hard she can't breathe.

Some of the other family stories involve Braxton, the family skeleton. He has been sitting in my dining room for over 2 years now since we couldn't find a place to keep him orgicianlly. As we would decorate for the holidays and for family theme nights, he would get dressed up as well. I have a few pages scrapped where you can see him participating in our party. Braxton makes us laugh a lot because you never know where he is going to turn up. Right now he is in the recliner with two skeleton pups on his lap. They have been waiting for him to take them for a walk- for a long time.

What is one story about your family that always gets everyone laughing even when they've heard it a hundred times? Funny family story layouts make great gifts. Use them as openers for different sections of your photo book or print & frame a copy to hang on your wall.

Oh Chris, you and your skellies. I love them - they're especially festive in their Santa hats. I will put a hat on mine this year - not sure I can find one tiny enough for Tex, but I have one for Lex.

We have a lot of funny family stories. Probably our favorites are the Sundays during church. Mom sang up in the choir, so she was constantly glaring at us - Dad was always up to some shenanigans or other, trying to make us girls laugh. Mom was usually mortified. We would try so hard to be good, so Mom would scold us, but it was hard when Dad sat there, straight-faced and innocent and put us up to laughing about something.

Cheryl, that sounds like my dad when Caitlyn graduated from preschool. She was in a town-sponsored PreK and they made a big fuss and the mayor handed out the "diplomas." She was onstage and I catch her making all of these funny faces. Look over at my dad and he is the one instigating! LOL
