Just Smile

Try not smiling when Jayne and nephew Jackson are entertaining.  Aunt Jayne is fun!


 

 You lost a tooth? Can ya smile?  Madee tries really hard, but look at that hole?  :( 
     






I think Punkin is funny, too.  You can't hang out with my roomy and not smile.
Brianna and Mallory got a good giggle goin'!




Gary giving his only daughter away...smiling?  She sure is. Stephanie on her way to becoming Mrs. Walser.






The bride and groom and Chloe and Hailee...that makes me smile.  :)












My baby on his 40th birthday. I may have smiled a bit more than John did, but that's because my "I just had a baby" excuses might be getting old now.




Those are some of the reasons I smile everyday. I just think it feels better than crying.  And I'm not real good at frowning, I'm really ugly when I frown.   :C  
See?

Ya know, life is just too short to go around looking ugly.

  15. Smiling does really improve a person's appearance and makes a person look all lit up inside. Seems to me you have a lot to smile about!
