    Since I live six hours away from my mom I just go right in. She calls every twenty minutes on my way up to see where we are so it isn’t like she isn’t expecting me lol.

    My parents live really far away, so the only times I’ve ever been to the house they live in now were when I was visiting from out of town and staying with them, so I obviously don’t ring the doorbell then.

    Fiance just lets us in whenever we swing by his parents’ place, announced or not.  We usually call beforehand, though.

    I always ring the bell, I guess it’s a force of habit.

    My dad’s g/f moved in the house, and she has a killer dog.  Seriously I’ve seen that thing try to go thru the glass door to get to a kid outside.  That and the door is always locked and when she moved in the first thing she did was change the doors and toilets, so we don’t have keys anymore either. 

    We just walk into his mom’s house.

    It’s the same for me and my Fiance with our respective parents’ houses…if we have the key we just walk in, if we don’t have the key then we ring the doorbell ….

    Never.  That would be so weird to ring the doorbell at my parents house.  We don’t ring the bell at my IL’s either.  Even without my husband with me, I walk right in just like I would at my parents house.

    I’m definitely guilty of just plain walking in. When we’re expecting them, they do the same to our house and we’re fine with it. We’ll always do a courtesy call before hand if they aren’t expecting us and they’ll do the same for us too.

    We don’t ring the doorbell or knock at my parents’ house or at my in-laws. But we also rarely ever stop by unannounced.

    We only ring the doorbell if the door is locked.  Otherwise, we walk right in if we are expected.

    We do the same when we are going to the homes of extended family for the holidays, BBQs, etc.

    I *think* that I usually just walk in…but I may have rung the doorbell if I felt it was a more formal occasion!

    I don’t ring the door for any relatives, really. Even aunts and uncles. We’re a very casual family with an open-door policy, same with the hubs.

    Although people usually ring the door at our house? Is that weird? I wonder if we give off a more formal vibe. Sad!
