ApRiL fOoLs!!

April fool’s everybody! This morning started out fun. Coco came up with this idea. Before it was time for Dallas to get up for school I ran around and got all the clocks set for 8:30. Then I ran up stairs in a panic telling the girls that it was 8:30 and I fell back to sleep and they were late for school. They were jumping up and rushing to get ready. I then went down stairs and woke up Dallas telling him the same thing. He jumped out of bed too. Well it took the kiddos a total of 14 minutes to get ready to go. I told them I had breakfast bars in the van for them to eat as I drove them. When everyone was ready I said I really felt like we needed a prayer. So I proceeded to say the prayer with the family. And this is what I said, “Our dear Father in Heaven I pray that thou will forgive me because and then I yelled April fool’s!! The kiddos were so surprised. The good thing is there was enough time to go to the park and play before we walked to school. So the pictures of 5 of my favorite people are here. The first picture is of my April fool dinner. I made meatloaf (cocoa rice crispy treats, chocolate & butterscotch sauce for the gravy). Mash potatoes (Ice cream), and the green beans or snow peas (eatable peanut butter play-dough). It was great to see the family’s faces as they tried the plate of goodies. I did have the exact thing made in real food for dinner in the oven. It was so fun to make all these goodies and play tricks on the kiddos. Have a great night. Hugs, Bobbi Jo
