April Fools Day

Well, Stacey and I were trying to think of something good to do for April Fools Day for the kids. I remembered a little trick that Russell pulled a while ago at one of our Adult Dinners, and I thought it would be perfect.

*****Crudity alert*****

If you have ever heard of No-Bake cookies, you may know they are also called Gorilla Poop sometimes. Well, we made a batch of those cookies, then formed them into rolls so that they looked just like poop. When the kids asked if we were going to have dessert, I replied that we were going to have poop for dessert. They were grossed out, and had to ask Stacey to see if I was just joking. Stacey confirmed it, but they still didn't believe it. Well, after dinner, I told them that I had been saving up poop for a while and I was going to go get it. I went into the bathroom, where I had hidden a plate of our "cookies" and came out with it.

The kids were completely grossed out when they saw it, and neither wanted to even touch them. They both responded with a "euww" when I reached out and picked one up. They were even more shocked when I took a bite. It was hilarious! I tried coaxing them to take a bite, but Aaron would have nothing to do with them. Kaylee finally picked one up and took a little nibble, then excitedly proclaimed, "they're good!" They eventually realized that they were just cookies, but man, it was funny. We got it all on the camcorder, so I will post a video when I get a chance. Great April Fools joke!

We enjoyed our April Fools day quite a bit.

Awesome! Eric you don't need to tag your crude stuff man! Anybody who is sensitive to such things should not be such a weenie! Very much looking forward to the video.

I only tagged it for you! I don't want to offend and I know how you hate that kind of stuff. Actually, it is for any relatives that may get grossed out...this way they can't say I didn't warn them.
