april fools


this year for april fools' day i snuck some blue food coloring into our milk.  my kids rarely have cereal for breakfast, so luckily i picked up a box of honey nut cheerios the day before to entice them with a new box of cereal in the house.  their reactions were hysterical.  wide eyes and a "huh?" expression.  lucy had the gaping mouth and all.  the rest of the day was spent offering people snap gum and sneaking a whoopie cushion under people's bums, which, of course, resulted in the most outrageous fit of belly laughs.  every. single. time.  it never got old.  perhaps we will come up with something a bit grander next year, but this simple prank was enough for my kids this year (thanks, martha).

what a great idea!!! your kids sure are lucky to have such a fun mom. i also love that last picture of jack. it's so funny because 99% of the time i think he's the spitting image of you, but he really looks like a burch there...
