Just look at this face
Nothing says happiness

I highly recommend it!

With 2 sons and 3 grandsons and NO girls, yes there was a LOT of wrestling at our house. Now that wrestling is at our sons' homes but the tradition carries on.

I'm the one who gets hurts anytime I wrestle...

April said...

I think it's a boy kind of thing. My brothers used to do it all the time. Girls are a little more "delicate".

HA! That last pic of the open mouth!!!!!!

My hubby used to wrestle every evening with our boys when they were growing up. What fun memories you've brought back to me.

My granddaughters now enjoy wrestling around with their father too.

Lord Love A Duck! I adore that "I beat anorexia" T in the previous post. I truly need one of those wrapped around my ample frame!

Thanks for your sweet comments! ♥

I tell my kids... Hey, It's all fun and games till someone get's hurt. LOL

Your family looks like so much fun.

I wrestled a lot as a kid, and when my daughter was younger it was more of a tickle fight thing!! Fun though!

Chris said...

Very cool! Hope all is well.

Pat aka Posh said...

Thanks for stopping by my blog..
What a lovely family you have and such a bright outlook on life.
Yes, my hubby and I use to wrestle all the time and loved it.. we're getting a bit too old for much of that now so we just like to tickle and laugh a lot. I do believe a family that laughs together stays together.
Blessings

Thanks so much for the comment on my fix it Friday photo -- so fun to play with those pics :) Personally, I love the wrestling scream pic of yours -- so, so cute!

septembermom said...

Tons of wrestling with my three boys at my house. They are big WWE fans. I'm always afraid that they'll do just the wrong move and I'll hear the cries. All in all, they have a great time!

Kimmy said...

Actually, we do wrestle around our our house. It's my hubby, daughter and I. The dog likes to get in on the action too! Too much fun :O)

Soliloquy said...

Oh there's physical action in these parts.

But NINA usually starts it.

Not really fair there's a rule that under NO circumstances can Stink hit a girl....

Poor kid gets his buttons pushed.

Mom 2 Four said...

My oldest son used to wrestle with his daddy all of the time, they both loved it.

Thanks for the really nice comments on my blog, my son is a cutie pie, but boy let me tell you he is full on stinker, terrible twos!!!!

Melinda said...

LOL - so much for teaching children to be peace keepers and to believe in world peace : )

I'm just kidding, we do the same thing at our house which no doubt worries me...Jack goes to school next year and I can just hear the phone conversation now: "Mrs. Brookshire, your son Jack is headlocking all of his peers..."

The Incredible Woody said...

I'm a fighter, not a lover!!

Show me a little UFC and I start thinking I'm a badass and try to kick Vol Fan's ass!!

Becky said...

We don't wrestle as much as we just run around and chase... but I do pin the kids when necessary ;-)

Woman Interrupted said...

Thanks for stopping in!

We DO love to 'rassle around our house! Now a days I let my son and his dad go for it because, already at three, he's too rough for my liking. (And boys will be boys!)

The Things We Carried said...

I love the faces here. Beauty running free and wild.

Daphine said...

We're all wimps! Not much wrestling at our house. lol!

These are great pictures!

Have a great weekend!

Beatriz Kim said...

Have a wonderfully joyous evening! ...or is it still day?

M said...

Wrestle-mania fest baby! That's what it's like w/kids...I just can' allowit a school...and they hate me for it!

Yaya said...

Lol! Boys will be boys!

Grandma J said...

I have A-Ron convinced I'm all muscle, and that I could take him down. HA!
Even JJ knows better.

Fresh Mommy said...

LOL, that's so funny! My kids wrestle my husband regularly, but they know better than to pull that will Mama! LOL!

Trudy said...

My husband is always fighting with my twin step-sons, 15...they watch wrestling and copy the moves!

It looks like they are all having fun and keeping smiles on their face...so I say keep it up!

Suki said...

I did always fight with my brothers and it's just a thing boys ans sometimes girls do. :)

Liz said...

Cute pictures!

Mommy Project said...

Oh, I hope you see this! I just wanted to say "Thank-you" so much for coming over to my blog to let me know about my 10th place finish at "I Heart Faces". I kind of assume that I won't win so I didn't go there ~first thing~ to check...until I saw your message!! How exciting!!! I know it's only 10th, but with all the tough competition I am SUPER EXCITED!

Thanks so much!
You are so sweet!!!!
:0)

Sneaky Momma said...

What fun pics! Look at all the smiles!
I think my girls (almost 2,3) are too little to wrestle, but that doesn't stop them from trying to do it anyway! :)
Love the Jesse Ventura quote.

DD said...

Boy does this make me want a boy! :-)

Bonnie said...

Love it! The pictures are great. My 11 yr old son loves to wrestle with me. Isn't that funny??

Keri said...

Oh yes! Wrestling is very common in our household. Actually, it's a type of therapy for Logan and he receives many benefits from it. So much fun!

Sonya said...

I had two older brother's growing up so there was always some sort of wrestling match going on! I loved it.

Baloney said...

Just now popping over. Thanks for visiting my blog!
Wrestling is the bane of my existence!!! With 2 boys it never stops until someone gets hurt. Then there are the two gigantic dogs who wrestle without ceasing. It rearranges my furniture.
I'm glad you embrace it though! :)

Cute pics!

mimi said...

Constant wrestling, constant adrenaline. I love it....but it scares me just a little :)

theArthurClan said...

That's my house 24/7. Oh my word - it can drive a mom nuts after awhile!
