Twas the night before April Fool's....By Kim





We were plotting and planning
when all through the night
not a child was stirring
perhaps out of fright..

The kids were on guard
prepared to stay up all night
to prevent a trick
from happening all right.

The adults prevailed,
with the sandman's help,
sound asleep, they fell,
it was time to attack!

Okay, I am most certainly not a poet, I tried!

We laughed so hard, so many mishaps, so much noise, how did Pickle not waken, I'll never know.

First the nailpolish would not open.
Then the marker we realized was not waterproof.
I dropped a bottle, making a loud crash.
The dog was whining and barking, wondering what we were doing on the table and chair (Pickle is on the top bunk)
We put a raisin in the toothpaste, so that it would look like a giant bug coming out, and while sticking the raisin in, it disappeared, don' worry T rescued it.
While T was painting the toes, I was painting the face, and Pickle was tickled, and moved his toes, the sheets permanently have shimmerink pink polish on them.
We didn't have vaseline, to put on the door, so we used hair gel instead, next year we will have to get some vaseline, that would have worked better, it did the trick!

We had a couple more ideas, and then Pickles played one, that was not really well thought through, I'll post the rest tomorrow, some more photos too.

Stay tuned.....

Oh my gosh, that's hilarious!

Thanks for the comment. I'll try to keep you up on the adventures of trying to be environmentally conscious (though I'm not that great at it, I'll admit).

Very funny!

Too funny.

My son wore a band-aid on his face and told people he got bit by a squirrel. You should have seen some of the shocked moms until he said April Fools.
