Spam Musubi with a Side of Laughter's been a minute since I've updated the blog.  I've had blogs in my mind but I just haven't had the energy or desire to sit down and write them.  It's been an interesting few weeks.  We've been challenged as a family.  But we made it through and we're just so much stronger. 

Today the kids were off from school for Martin Luther King Day and after Neil got home from wrestling practice, we just kind of kept it low key.  We went to a friend's house and made Spam Musubi and then spent the rest of the day cleaning the house at our leisure and being bums.  It's been nice.  We stay on the go with wrestling, Scouts, school and life so it was nice to have a relaxing day.

One thing I love about being a Military family is all the diversity in the people we meet.  My kids have gotten hooked on Spam Musubi since meeting three families who have become close friends to us here.  Daniel kept telling me I needed to learn how to make them for him.  I told him he needed to learn how to make them for himself.  I finally just texted my friend Kristi and asked her if she would please give us an hour of her time and let us come and learn how to make them.  We always have so much fun and lots of laugh when we spend time with her sweet family.  Today was no exception. 


Why do my kids not smile in pics anymore?  What happened to the days where they were hams for the camera?
Michael needs to start shaving.  He has weird sideburns and a mustache that needs to be trimmed or shaved.  I told him he looks like a guy who lives in his mother's basement.  He wasn't amused.

I love these two pictures.  My friend Kristi took one and I took the other.  Neil never wants to smile for my camera.  I told him to "Smile for your daddy or I'll smack the crap out of you."  Hey, it works...even if he knows it's not true.

Daniel shared some of his musubi with his buddy Tanner.  That kid can eat!  He ate one of Daniel's and one of Michael's!
Talan was so cute.  He walked in, saw the musubi on the cutting board.  Walked over and said..."Oooh!"  and grabbed one.  It made Neil laugh and smile!
 We had a wonderful day with a wonderful family.  Lots of laughter and good food!
