For April Fool's Day I didn't really have anything planned until my friend Sara made me feel like a bad Mom :) telling me all of the fun things that she had done with her kids. I had a Family Fun magazine that had some fun ideas in it so I decided to try them out. For Dinner I mad "fish sticks" out of waffer cookies with peanut butter smeared on them and then rolled them in corn flakes, the "peas" were rolled up little balls of Laffy Taffy and the "ketchup" was strawberry jam. For "dessert" we had meat loaf cupcakes with colored mashed potatoes on top. And to drink we had "juice" but it was really a cup of jello with a straw in it to make it look like a drink.
I had Keith take the kids on a little drive while I got everything on the table. When the kids came in they just kept looking at the food like they knew it looked a little wierd but couldn't quite figure out what was different about it. Sam said "Mom, what kind of frosting is that, it is really fluffy." We all sat down to eat and Sam ate a "pea" first. He started to spit it out but then realized that it was candy and decided to eat them all. The "fish sticks" weren't very tasty and I don't think that any of us actually got full but it was still a lot of fun!
