Happy April!  And That's No Fooling! As I look at my blog post from last year – I read how it was SNOWING here in the Pacific Northwest!  What a good “April Fool’s” that was!!

Happy April! And That’s No Fooling!

As I look at my blog post from last year – I read how it was SNOWING here in the Pacific Northwest!  What a good “April Fool’s” that was!!

This year – it’s still pretty cold out – but at least it’s SUNNY!!

I am very mischievous by nature and have pulled some WONDERFUL April Fool’s “pranks” over the years – my family knows me well – and never know just what I’ll do to them on this day!!  My favorite one happened when my husband Greg was in seminary down in Ft. Worth, Texas.  Our children were 5 and 1 at the time – we lived in the family housing directly across the highway from the seminary.  Greg would take the car over to school and park it there all day.  I had no need for the car – I was a stay at home Mommy with two young children.  So it was on this April 1st – of about 1993 that I put Shawn in the stroller and said to 5-year-old Ashlee – let’s walk over to Daddy’s school and play a trick on him!  She loved “tricks” of any kind – (still does) and thought this was a great idea!  We walked over to where Greg had parked the car – unlocked it – and I put the kids in the car – the stroller in the trunk of the car – and off we drove!  I was sure to park the car VERY FAR from our apartment so Greg wouldn’t see it – and went about my day.  Later that day Greg came in – and said, “Cindy – did you come and take the car?”  and I – who have the greatest “poker face” in the world – said, “No – can’t you remember where you parked the car”?  I must have been pretty convincing because he was really starting to think he was “losing it” and I saw him mentally going back over exactly where he thought he might have parked the car.  I let him go on – (it wasn’t TOO long) finally panicking and thinking “maybe the car is stolen” – when FINALLY I told him that we had moved the car – APRIL FOOLS!!!!  He wasn’t as mad as he was RELIEVED!!!  We were VERY poor in those days.  (har har!!!)

One year I told our children, 9 and 5 (after a carefully planned trip to Disneyland) that we weren’t able to go after all.  (Sigh)  Silence.  Disbelief.  Almost tears.  “Mommy!!! – Really????”    “Well…”  I said, “NO NOT REALLY!! – APRIL FOOL’S”!!!!!    (har har!!!)  I know – I’m TERRIBLE!!!  It’s all in good fun folks!

Hope you have some fun memories of this day – and nothing TOO painful!!!

God Bless!
