Life is Funny


Introducing... My new carnival!!! I have to say that I'm pretty excited about doing this. I hope that everyone will participate! I'll explain more in a bit, but for now, here's my post.

God has a great sense of humor. Need proof? Just look around you. Life is funny. Take the random assortment of leftover parts that we've come to know as the platypus.


See? Funny. God had to be laughing when he created them.

And then there's our kids. I have to say that my daughter is hysterical! She's picked up quite the little sense of humor. Even when she was young, she was full of surprises and laughter for us. One of my all-time favorite things that she did happened when she was 2 or 3 years old. We were driving at night and she was in the back seat and angry about something - I wish I could remember what. It was dark, so of course we couldn't see her, so from the backseat we hear, "I'm making a face at you!"


I'm sure she wasn't happy about it, but my husband and I couldn't stop laughing. To this day, we'll still say, "I'm making a face at you!" when the other person needs to have a face made at them. Oh, good times.

So, how is life funny for you? C'mon, share. Laughter is a gift!

Ready to play? Here's what you do.

1. Anytime this week, blog about what in life you find funny. It could be something that happened during the week, your general impression about why life is funny, or even just your favorite joke. Be creative!

2. Please put a link to my blog in your post. And I'd appreciate it if you'd add my carnival button (made for me by Andie - thanks so much Andie!) to your post. To make this easy, I've put the code to do so under my blog button on my sidebar to the right.

3. After you've posted, come back here and sign up on Mr. Linky below. For the first box, put your name and your blog (example: Wendy @ Weight...What?), then your URL in the second box. Make sure you link directly to your "Life is Funny" post (not to your main page) so we can all read what you have to say.

4. Visit all the other participants and see what they have to say, even if you don't have a blog of your own. And very important: Comment, comment, comment! Oh, how we love getting comments...

5. If you Twitter, please tweet about this - the more participants, the merrier!

So go out and spread the laughter! I can't wait to see what everyone has to say!

"I'm making a face at you..." HA! I'm crackin' up here.

It must be a redhead thing; my middle daughter is just as obstinate.

Your daughter is so cute. I love her picture and face!

Your daughter does make one awesome lil face there! Too cute to take as a nasty look though. :)

My joke is scheduled to go up early tomorrow morning. It is from Wittenburg Door, and the premise is that God kept a blog during creation.

Since I just found your blog, I might need a day or two to come up with a funny thing. I personally find life funny, so I'm sure there's something to share. I'll be thinkin...

Well I'm not sure why I had to make this so hard for myself. I mean I have a 4 1/2 year old I live with funny all day long!
Thank you for doing this Wendy! This was too much fun. I would have to agree that your daughter is just way too cute!

Lisa said...

Your daughter is gorgeous! I cannot resist red head kiddies!!!! I just melt at the site of them! I'm a redhead too and people used to call me "Elizabeth" from The Waltons when I was little.

Your blog is hilarious! It amazes me when people can set up a very funny scene on these blogs. Good job! I'll have to think about a good "life is funny" moment....I know I have them daily, just producing them on my blog doesn't come naturally to me, like it does you! :)
