The First of April

April 1st, 2014 by Aubri


20 Pounds in 30 Days….APRIL FOOLS!



I didn’t realize today was April Fools Day, but as I went to pack the girls lunch this morning I thought, ha what if I put nasty Cheetos in Lily’s lunch. She’s does not like Cheetos, she’d be so mad….”wait, is today April 1st?” I thought, “I’m totally gonna do that!”I opened the bags and switched the chips, then taped them shut. Though to avoid a break down at school and to ensure that my clever prank would not go unappreciated I told the girls what I did. They LOVED it! After I explained what April Fools Day was, the morning went down hill pretty fast.They tricked our neighbor who was picking Lily up for school.

Clara got “ready” with her backpack and Lily hid in the hall. When our neighbor came to get Lily he found Clara. Clara said “I’m ready!” And Lily yelled from the hall….”Clara, say APRIL FOOLS!!!” They’re so tricky.


We gave him doughnut seeds and for his wife, a card that doesn’t open.

Then I found the perfect trick for Phil who is on his way home from a conference tonight.


Clara made him some Brown Es!

Yes, we’re all comedians at the parsonage.

  1. The children got Brown-E’s at school from the teacher today – brown letter ‘E’ erasers. The children thought this was hysterical too!

    Sounds like you had a fun day!
