This year I really didn't do a lot for April Fool's day, except for this fun dinner. I took the kids up to my parent's house and we had a blast getting creative. I loved having a few extra hands to
help with Katie so I could just take an afternoon to think about something different.
Notice how the table is set? No, not Lee's doing!
French Dip Sandwiches
Hot Fudge Brownie Sundaes
Green licorice whips
Lee helped us learn the difference between solids and liquids as we worked on the "Punch" (really orange jell-o, in a cup with a straw set in). And amazingly, as I made the buns for the french dip sandwiches on Thursday, I caught Anna after only taking one bite of one bun! Now THAT is an accomplishment, considering I was nursing Katie at the time, and wasn't even the kitchen. I expected to lose at least two or three of the buns, but nope, only one bite.
The food was tasty and fun, and a favorite tradition in our family. I hope you all had a good April Fool's day too!
