Happy April Fool’s Day!

Sounds like a PLAN to us! We have NEVER been good at the whole April Fool’s thing. Either our pranks were TOO LAME, and never fooled anyone, or else we thought that our ideas were TOO MEAN to try on anyone. The most successful trick I have played all day was jumping out and scaring 2 of our 4 kiddos. I am still working on the 3rd, and will not stop trying until I have accomplished doing so for the day. Although, I love scaring people, and do this ALL of the time, so I am not sure if it really constitutes as a real “April Fool’s Prank.”

Have any of you ever gotten away with a successful April Fool’s prank? If so, tell us all about it in the comments section below. Maybe we could try it out next year. Happy April Fool’s Day, Y’all!
