April Fool Fun

Ok, so it was a couple weeks ago, but I wanted to share what we did for April Fool's Day this year. I don't like pranks that are cruel in the slightest, but do try to set up at least one or two good-natured tricks to celebrate the fun of this holiday. I found a gummy worm that looked exactly like a real worm. After slitting a hole in the banana with a knife, I slid the worm inside and shuddered--even knowing the worm was fake, I don't know if I could have eaten the banana. I gave it to the ladies I visit-teach. Haha.
I made this tricky breakfast to greet Jerry on the morning of April 1st. I set up our grill and then put down on it these candy eggs and bacon. Yep--candy. The "eggs" are melted white chocolate with a yellow M&M in the middle, and the "bacon" is a fun-sized Snickers candy bar sliced length-wise. When I was making the M&M eggs, that Lo kept pointing at them saying "egg!" so I knew the trick was working already.

I have a few more ideas that I'd like to do for next year but if anybody else has ideas to share, please do--I will need to keep adding to my repertoire of tricks or they will start to get old!
