Early fooling

There are only 2 more days until the 1st of April.  Do you know why that is significant?  Because the biggest day of the year is almost here.  April Fools Day.  My kids have been whispering and planning for the past week.  Carson keeps asking me how many more days until the first day of April.  I give him the answer and then he runs off laughing.  

They are plotting.

I am in trouble.

Last year I got Taylor pretty good so I know for a fact there is a great amount of revenge to be dished out.  But I believe the tricks are already starting.  As unintentional as hubby makes it sound he got me yesterday.

I was making pumpkin chocolate chip muffins for dessert.  Not many people think pumpkin and spring go together but I like to live on the wild side.  Call me crazy.  I mixed the dry ingredients in one bowl and was putting together the wet ingredients in a separate bowl.  I poured in the melted butter and a can of pumpkin and then I went to crack the eggs.  I hit it on the side of the bowl and nothing came out.  I thought, "what is wrong with this egg?" It was heavy so I knew the inside didn't somehow fall out.  I take a closer look as my eyes are getting bigger and realized I cracked open a hard boiled egg, but I didn't make any hard boiled eggs.  

It was funny, but not when I noticed that the rest of the eggs were all hard boiled too and now I couldn't finish my recipe without making a trip to the store.  Oh and Jason was just laughing at me.  I should have made him go to the store for "unintentionally" (my butt) tricking me.  

Payback time is almost here honey!   

(Anybody have any good tricks?)


  1. Heh... my friend Jessica had some cute recipes on her blog.

    I am thinking about making one of them. Happy April Fools. Can't wait to see what they have in store for you and what you have for them!

  2. How did I not realize tomorrow was the 1st? Seriously, I need to look at a calendar more often.

    I usually make a 'cake' out of meatloaf with mashed potatoes as frosting to celebrate the day.

    I'm looking forward to reading about your day!
