Anytime we give a birthday gift to ANYONE (kids, adults, no one is immune), we drop a can of the weirdest edible product we can find in the gift bag. Last lucky person got a can of Spotted Dick.

My parents have rescued over 500 dogs in the past 20 years or so… every time one passes away, my mom buries it with a token so it can “remember” us… that token is usually something from the house… there’s a Nokia cel buried somewhere that I’m sure still works! #ThatsMyFamily

At Thanksgiving we play a game called “truths,” where the (now adult) children have to come clean to our parents about something we previously lied about.
