Today in honor of National Cheese Lover’s Day, I’m sharing a very cheesy family tradition, a fun family activity, AND a giveaway!
My family has a thing for jokes — cheesy jokes. They’re actually really bad, but I like to think they’re so bad they’re good!
The tradition starts with my Grandpa, who had a few favorite jokes that he would recite for us from time to time. My dad is also notorious for his incredibly cheesy puns.
When I was in junior high, I had the amazing idea to document the “best” of the bunch in a Family Joke Book. I made a scrapbook (I used the 8″ x 6″ size) with pages dedicated to certain people (like my Grandpa who started it all) and themes (of course there are chicken jokes and knock-knock jokes). The supplies I used were colorful scrapbook paper, stickers, family photos, and markers, and the result was a book that truly reflected our family and brings back wonderful memories.
My 7 year old daughter showed a knack for cheesy jokes at a very young age. In those early days, her punchline usually involved someone eating mud. Yep, mud — gotta love preschool humor! Her skills have improved, and she now loves to spontaneously bust out knock-knock jokes. This is her signature:
Can we watch cartoons?
I love her originality and enthusiasm! She actually tells knock knock jokes so often that her younger sister (who’s only 20 months) now loves to join in, calling out “Knoknooocck! Who dere?”
I got out my old family joke book this week and shared it with the girls. Lilu was thrilled to see something that I had made when I was younger, and add some new funnies to her repertoire. There are actually still some blank pages remaining in the book because I had planned on adding to it at a later time. I’m sure I had intended to work on it again before 20 years had gone by, but how perfect that I didn’t! I know that Lilu and I will have so much fun updating the family joke book with our new Rodriguez family favorites.
Chuck E. Cheese’s is also celebrating National Cheese Lover’s Day! For the occasion, they’ve created a brand new thin crust pizza recipe. Check out what happened when they debuted the new recipe on the streets of New York City without telling taste-testers where it came from before they tried it!
