    April Fools

    April 1st was always one of my favorite days. As a kid, I loved to be tricked by my dad. He got me every single year. I remember falling for my dad telling me that there was a dinosaur outside. I was only 4. Give me a break!

    My most favorite prank was in high school. I woke my sister up uber early and sat on the edge of her bed. I shook my head and pretended to be distraught. I explained that I was pregnant and didn't know how to tell mom. My sister fell for it hook line and sinker. We began planning and plotting for what I was going to do.

    I didn't tell her until the next day that it was an April Fools joke. I'm surprised she didn't kill me when she found out.

    I haven't pulled off any great April Fools jokes in many years. Of course I always get my girls. This morning I woke them up and told them there wasn't school because we were having a blizzard (in their defense, the wind is blowing 40 mph). Needless to say, they weren't very happy to find out that I had pulled one over on them.

    Daughter #1 is supposed to have her 1st softball game today. The team hasn't even been able to practice outside yet because of our wonky weather. I'm having a hard time believing there will be a game today.

    Be careful what you fall for today!

    Oh, if they are batting with the wind then #1 could be getting a home run today.

    I can not imagine them playing either. That ground is real mushy and water logged. There best be no sliding or extra ordinary efforts to catch the ball or they will come up all soaked. Good luck with the game.

    As to April fools, I have not been a part of a good April Fools prank in some time. Of course I pull small pranks throughout the year to make up for it. Rarely does anyone suspect that it is me. I love it.

    YOU SOOOOOO BAD!!! HAHAHAHAHAHAHA....but that's what we LOVE about our Jenn! I am the one that always has sucker written across her forehead...DUH!! I've never been very good except one time telling my exhusband I couldn't have a procedure done because I was pregnant. I thought he was going to shit his pants and then I blew it and started laughing so hard and then he knew it was a joke. BUT...I still got him...lol!!!

    I miss being around and seeing you too. Busy busy busy we all must be!

    I just watched your video, that was cool!
    You sound just like my cousins who are from Battle Creek! LOL

    You should be proud. You look hot.

    You wouldnt believe the clothing in India, Jenn...it is so tiny. You have to be like a size 8 or smaller to buy anything in the shops. Most Indian woman are quite tiny, and when they get chubby, they can always resort to sarees, 6 yards of wonder!

    I even have some stuff I bought this year that is already to tight after 10 weeks of American diet!

    Happy April Fools! Im not much of a prankster....

    I pretended to get pissed at my kids for their grades and told them that I had just looked online...didn't really know what was going on but I was pissed. No extra carricular activities for a month because of this....I watched them become crestfallen...then I said, "April Fools."

    They started beating me with their pillows.

    Dang no one remembered here. Maybe it was cause everyone was worried about grandpa and his eye surgery.
