April Fools!

How about dessert first, then dinner? Since it's April Fools Day, that's what we decided to do. Or so everyone thought....

For dessert, we had cupcakes.

Seth saw me putting the icing on these and was really excited to have one. I served him one on a plate and as he peeled the foil off, he said,  "Uh, Mom... Did you make these with meatloaf on the bottom?" Why, yes... I did! April Fools! The icing on top was actually mashed potatoes colored green.

For dinner after "dessert", we had what appeared to be fish sticks, mashed potatoes and gravy, peas and carrots, bread and lemonade. Isabelle was good at guessing what each food really was.

Looks good!
However, what we really were going to eat was Kit Kats covered in graham crackers, vanilla ice cream with caramel sauce, cut up colored Tootsie Rolls, pound cake and lemon Jell-O! It was fun to see the kids discover what the foods really were and to try to drink the Jell-O.

Really, Mom?

Mmm... I like these peas!
Parker wasn't fooled!

April Fools!
