April Fools Day


Yesterday I came upstairs to find these unusual things...a dog reading a Trixie Belden book on the toilet...I can see why the dog would like to read Trixie Belden - that was one of my favorite series when I was younger. Not only does the dog and I like Trixie, but so does dd. It's hard to believe she is reading books that I read and MY mother read before I did.

A deep sea diver in the bathroom sink...

A music loving cowboy....

The kids thought they'd do a little April Foolin'...the girl was also dressed in the boy's clothes and the boy in one of the girl's dresses.

This morning the girl came and told me "Brother was messing with my alarm clock yesterday and so I woke up at 3:00 AM - can you tell him he's not allowed to do that anymore?" Maybe it was his own little April Fools joke - he (and I) had a good laugh about it.

Of course where did he learn to do that anyway? Well b/c big sister did that to dad's alarm clock a couple of weeks ago. It's more fun to do the foolin' than to be the fooled.

How wonderful that they did this all on their own. I love the idea of switching clothes for a day. And the alarm clock? Brilliant!

I'm calling your kids for ideas next year.
