Belly Laughs

For several reasons we have chosen not to have cable or a TV in our home (we still enjoy a good family movie every now and then, so if you know of one, let me know :) ).  Not sitting in front of the TV every night provides many, many opportunities for belly laughs. 

The other night, Brent was down on the floor playing with all the kiddos before we went to the grocery store...  the calm, quiet playing slowly evolved into Brent becoming a horse for everyone to ride.  The next thing we know, this horse began bucking it's riders off and then standing up on it's hind legs neighing.  

It was quite the sight and it evoked deep, belly laughs from all...

A merry heart doeth good like a medicine. Proverbs 17:22


  1. I can just picture it, it made me laugh just thinking of Brent neighing like a horse.
    Your kiddos are so much more creative without the t.v.

  2. We, too, have no tv, but we have family movie night usually every Sunday. We've been enjoying the oldies (my mom has been sending them), things like Swiss Family Robinson, Pollyanna, My Friend Flicka...things like that. :)

    You gotta love the belly laughs!!

  3. belly laughs are the best. and I admire the fact you don't have a TV. as I comment, I have fox news in the background. UGH and its not even remotely necessary!

  4. I love, love those times. Our evenings are spent with the tv off, so the belly laughs are very, very frequent! :)
