Eat Your Veggies & Spring Giveaway

 I wanted to do something fun with Hootie on April Fool's Day, but couldn't think of what would be enjoyable, not too confusing (and not too much work). I had thought of decorating the house like it was Christmas the night before, so when she woke up she would be totally confused. But then I considered the fact that I might spend the rest of the day explaining that it wasn't really Christmas and decided that wasn't the best plan. So I ran across these cupcakes in the book "Hello Cupcake" by Karen Tack and thought they were just the thing.



 (Don't worry - the chicken is real)
 No problem getting this girl to eat her veggies!

 I look happy - but this was pretty gross. I used honey for the "gravy" on the "mashed potatoes." Kind of sick.

This expression captures our true feelings...there is nothing appetizing about a slice of Starburst "butter." But it was a fun one-time thing.

Now that it's NOT April Fool's, I can post the giveaway and not worry about people thinking it's not legit. It's totally legit :)

  5. I wish I had a great April Fools day idea...I feel like I used up all my prankster ideas in college. Addie might enjoy some water turned to Kool Aid blood at some point, but I don't think she's there yet. Definitely not wanting crickets all over the house. My favorite thing about spring, though, is being able to go for walks and go to the park. It's so nice to be able to get out of the house and enjoy some fresh air! Also, I believe I am a public follower of Radical Crafts...I know I have a link to it on my blog!

  10. I don't have a favorite April Fool's prank, but my parents were married on April Fool's day in 1978! The pastor started the wedding ceremony by saying, "It may be April Fool's, but this wedding is no joke." My parents still get teased about it, but apparently they wanted to get married in April and the church was booked every other weekend. :)

  15. What I like most about Spring is that during Spring we get to celebrate the resurrection of our Lord and Savior!! I love to wake up on Resurrection Sunday and hear the birds singing. Without Christ - I am nothing!!

  17. my fav april fools prank was telling my husband I was expecting a baby. Except that ~3rd year of doing it, it was really true. Took quite a while to convince him it was legit that year ;-)
