April Fools

Today is my wedding anniversary - fourteen years!
But work is so busy for my husband that we will have to put off celebrating until the weekend.

I woke up my kids by telling them it had snowed & school was canceled - APRIL FOOLS'!

I spent the day looking for fruit thanks to my oldest...he hid a giant platter of citrus fruits under my pillow. I needed some of them for a recipe I was making...had to go get others eventually.
My youngest didn't quite get the meaning of the day, but shouted "April Fools' Day" sort of randomly.

Once they got home from school they reported a broken TV (joke), a failed test (joke) and on and on. Then my oldest said that I still hadn't found one of his pranks...seems he had taken a bunch of stuff from the freezer and put it in the washer as a hiding place. For an hour. He's been in his room since.

Enough - I'm ready to move on to April 2nd, thank you very much.

PS: I woke up in the night because there was another lemon & lime by my feet!
