>April Fools

>A few weeks ago, when Dave caught Luke and I whispering about April Fools Day, he put in a polite request that I not make meatloaf and mashed potato cupcakes again. I was happy to oblige.

I had read about a trick that I wanted to play on Luke, and then he flipped through my magazine and saw the trick and he wanted to play it on Dave. I figured Luke would forget, and he did, so I tricked him and then he and I tricked Dave. The trick: Put a drop of food coloring in the bottom of a cereal bowl. Add cereal. Then when you add the milk, it turns a crazy color. I went with blue for Luke and red for Dave:

Then, after school, we made a spaghetti dinner and a spaghetti and meatball dessert:

Luke insisted on having both types of spaghetti on his plate at the same time and he wanted to eat the spaghetti cupcakes first, but we managed to talk some sense into him.

After dinner I had to run out to the school for the school improvement team meeting. Before I left I whispered into Dave’s ear, “I short-sheeted Luke’s bed. So make sure he doesn’t just get under the comforter.” I wish I had a picture of the look that Dave gave me. I was something along the lines of, “What the heck is wrong with you?” But about 2 seconds later, Luke said, “Mom! Remember that you were going to play more tricks on me. When are you going to do that? You have more tricks planned, right?” That continued right up to until he couldn’t straighten out his legs once he got into bed. Ha! Got him.

In other news, here is Luke’s leaning tower of snowman right before we got another 4 inches of snow:
