Insane request, but I'm looking to have something translated for a Christmas gift...

My family's unofficial motto is "These Things Happen", taken from the film It's A Mad, Mad, Mad, Mad World. We say it countless times a day, for every situation ("The grocery store was out of olives. These things happen", "There was so much traffic on the way home. These things happen", etc).

I thought it would be funny to get "These Things Happen" in Latin and draw a family crest. I just don't know Latin... Oh well, these things happen. ;D

(The crest is gonna be awesome. I'm drawing it flanked by prairie dogs because my father lost a long, drawn out battle with them in our yard a few years ago and it's become a family joke)
