April Fool's

Ok - so I admit it - this mom is scared! I know my boys have been plotting for sometime now - they keep asking if it's April Fool's Day yet. So I know to be leary. I woke up with fear this morning - what COULD these boys be plotting?? They came up for breakfast, and told me their first plan wasn't going to work - they had wanted to hide and leave their pajamas laying on their beds - you know, scare me that the rapture happened and I had been left behind!! Think they've been reading too many of these?!? They were afraid it might scare Chloe - such nice boys!! So now I sit and wait - what in the world could they be plotting........

**********************************************************
Fast Forward 4 hours......

I come home and here is what I find....








Clothes staged all over the house - in front of the XBox - laying just like he lays to play, going down the stairs - Chloe's sippy cup, blanket AND glasses, by their computers, you got it - all the clothes but NO KIDS!!!!
After searching ALL OVER the house - calling out - NOT ONE WORD OUT OF THEM - (I was quite proud) - I even IM'd Joe to see if he was there - goodness, I was starting to get worried!!! I ended up thinking they had to be in the basement somewhere - I had tried showers, closets, you name it. So I went down in the basement - in our back hall where it is all storage and look what I found - 4 NAKED KIDS!!!! (I love it - our oldest thought I might have my camera so he threw some other clothes on!) They make me laugh!!!!

I love a good prankster and you're kids have a great sense of humor!! Happy April Fools. I mentioned something about it to my eight-year-old this evening and he was absolutely distraught. He may never get over not trying to fool everyone he came in contact with today. What a waste:)!

They are too funny!! Love your new look. I like the layout too. May have to put an order in someday for a new layout!!

When you are harvesting your crops and forget to bring in a bundle of grain from your field, don't go back to get it. Leave it for the foreigners, orphans and widows. Then the LORD your God will bless you in all you do.
