I know a lot of people don’t like April Fools Day.
I'm not one of those people... I LOVE it! Growing up, it was my favorite day of the year.
This year was particularly fun!
I made Darin this lunch—but when he opened each package, inside he found a homemade lunch!
For Matt and Lindsay's breakfast, I put a few drops of food coloring in the bottom of the kids’ bowls, then cereal on top. When I poured the milk over the cereal, the milk turned blue. The kids thought that was a pretty cool trick. And Matt, is certain that blue milk tastes better than regular milk.
In the afternoon we went into town to pull a few pranks on my dad at his office. I taped his phone so when he would answer it, it would just keep ringing. I taped the bottom of his mouse so it wouldn’t work, left a mysterious piece of cake on his desk, and messed a few other things up. He’s a good sport! Love you dad!
When the kids took their naps, I carried Matt to Lindsay’s room (he really is a deep sleeper and stayed asleep), then I toilet papered them in. ha ha ha-- I LOVE their faces in this picture!!
I also added mustaches to their pictures in the basement.
Last, for “dinner” I told the kids we were going to have “cake.”
(One was meatloaf and mashed potatoes, the other cheese bread).
Then for “dessert” we had Spaghetti and Meatballs--a carrot cake, with piped white frosting for the noodles, the meatballs are just carved out of cake, the sauce is Danish dessert, and the Parmesan cheese is grated white chocolate.
Happy April Fools Day!
