April Fool's Day

Okay, I am not much of a prankster and humor isn't really a big personality trait of mine but Madison has been talking about April Fool's Day for the past week. I am thinking first grade is about the prime age for this, able to do silly tricks on people and run around giggling!!! So, with the help of Family Fun Magazine, I packed an April Fool's Day lunch. For her lunchbox note I wrote the expected menu and then she will be suprised when she opens her thermos and chip bag to find sandwiches and veggie sticks! That, is about the extent of my pranking abilities, obviously I will need to start researching now for next year.
And just a note about lunch box notes...... I absolutely love having this stack of note paper for writing her quick notes each morning (I have forgotten probably 3 times the whole year and you better believe I hear about it after school!) and also sending in notes to the office. I keep the notepads in a little box with a supply of stickers, a variety of pens and a joke book for days I am stuck on what to write. I keep the box in the pantry by the often used lunch supplies (i.e. peanut butter!!) to help me remember. I am hoping this supply will last through the year and then plan to make my own notes with stamps and supplies for next year.

Mother Nature decided to pull a prank on all of us. We thought spring may be coming but APRIL FOOLS back to SNOW!!!!!!!

I love it!
That's just mean to put veggie sticks in the Sun Chips bag. There would be a revolt in my house. :)
