I saw this on Deal Seeking Mom this morning and had to pass it along. Gohere to request your free copy of James Dobson's dads and daughters from Family Talk. For U.S. residents only ..... I got mine, now the trick is to get my hubby to read it!!! :)

Each week I love to find funny stories for the Friday Funnies...there are so many to choose from! Hope you enjoy.....
Walking down the street, a man passes a house and notices a child trying to reach the doorbell. No matter how much the little guy stretches, he can't make it. The man calls out, "Let me get that for you," and he bounds onto the porch to ring the bell. "Thanks, mister," says the kid. "Now let's run."
Says one humorist: "Life is unfair. I lost my car keys at a ball game and never found them. I lost my sunglasses at the beach and never found them. I lost my socks in the washing machine and never found them. I lost three pounds on a diet -- I found them and five more."
I love to scrapbook. I haven't scrapbooked in over 5 years. When my kids were babies, I would scrapbook once a month with my girlfriends....something I desperately miss where we live now.
This is a pile of pictures and newspaper clippings from my daughters softball summer. Her all-star team, the "Explosion", won the state championship and went to the World Series in August. Then, that all-star team turned into a travel ball team and they won 4 out of 6 tournaments. We had a blast. This pile is the memories of that adventure this past summer.
Living in the South, we get excited when there is the talk of SNOW! Schools, stores and life as we know it comes to a halt with just a few inches. A couple of weeks ago we had snow/ice in the forecast. Even thought we didn't get much snow we did get ice~that would not melt for days. Thankfully, we did not loose electricity during our ice wonderland.Hubby was off for a day and we did have a wonderful time hanging out by the fireplace, roasting marshmallow, and making smores.
Our fountain water was solid ice.
We couldn't even open the mailbox....there was no mail anyway... we live of a rural road and the mail "lady" stayed home for the day!
Josh roasting hot dogs, followed by marshmallows :)
The kids decided that they wanted to camp out in the den and had a blast. I couldn't resist taking this sweet picture. Aren't they angels? (esp. when they are asleep!)
Well, so far that has been our "blizzard" of 2011. The kids are praying for real snow sometime before spring....we will see what happens.
A Florida senior citizen drove his brand new Corvette convertible out of the dealership. Taking off down the road, he pushed it to 80 mph, enjoying the wind blowing through what little hair he had left.
“Amazing,” he thought as he flew down I-75, pushing the pedal even more.
But looking in his rear view mirror, he saw a State Trooper behind him; blue and red lights flashing and siren blaring.
He floored it to 100 mph, then 110, then 120. Suddenly he thought, “What am I doing? I’m too old for this,” and pulled over to await the trooper’s arrival.
Pulling in behind him, the trooper walked up to the Corvette, looked at his watch and said, “Sir, my shift ends in 15 minutes, plus today is Friday. If you can give me a reason for speeding that I’ve never heard before, I’ll let you go.”
The old gentleman paused then said, “Three years ago, my wife ran off with a Florida State Trooper. I thought you were bringing her back.”
I am a stay at home/home school Mom of two great kids, 15 and 11. I have been married to my sweetheart for 18 years and can truly say that he is my best friend. I rely on God for everything and praise him for all that I have.
