April Fool's Dinner

I realize that April Fool's Day is a few days past, but I thought I would update you on what I did. On April Fool's Day, I decided to get into the holiday for a change. I added a pregnancy tracker on the side of my family's blog for the day and made a fun dinner for the kids. Nothing too crazy...but still some excitement.

When I pulled the "cupcakes" out of the oven and told the kids we would be eating our dessert first for dinner, they looked at me like I was crazy. Then, as they looked closer, my oldest son said, "hey I see meat in there." A disturbing thought when talking about a cupcake, but the fact that they were really meatloaf cupcakes with potatoes as the frosting, I guess that is okay. Surprisingly they tasted really good and we all enjoyed them, including my husband. When my youngest son first licked the "frosting", expecting a sweet taste, he got a funny look on his face and said, "hey, these are potatoes." We had some explaining to do at this point. When the kids had finished their "dessert", I asked if they were then ready for "dinner". They laughed and then were excited to see what was next.

I pulled out some "fishsticks and peas", and they were a little more nervous to try it out, but once they tasted both and figured out what they really were (cookies & Laffy Taffy), they loved them too. My 3 year old was a little confused throughout the dinner, but went along with things because the older 2kids were so excited. He kept telling me how much he loved peas. (Great, now I may be in trouble with that vegetable!)

I hope you all had a great April Fool's Day and weren't tricked by too many people!

The 27-km Swartberg Pass is viewed as one of the finest mountain goes on the planet: an untarred street that winds to the summit 1 583 meters above ocean level in steep crisscrosses and sudden bends with amazing perspectives every step of the way. payday loans

I ached for rest as a departure from my prompt reality. Have you ever ached for rest as a getaway? On the off chance that you have then you know precisely what I'm discussing. I have come to value the 5-8 hours of rest as a guide to my wellbeing, as well as a mental and profound energize that fills me for the following day. payday loans

Nell'antica Grecia, un simposio era un banchetto sontuoso che hanno preso parte i ricchi e aristocratici della Grecia. Gli uomini riuniti al simposio a parlare di politica, filosofia e poesia. Il simposio era in origine un gruppo di combattenti. Guerrieri incontrato qui e mangiarono e bevvero e si intrattenne a loro piacimento. come fare unemail di candidatura in inglese per apple
