April Fools!!

I had a lot of fun planning pranks this year, although most of them were not successful because I told Bob yesterday that I was going to do some pranks, and because I can never keep a straight face. Last night after Bob went upstairs to go to bed, I stayed up and unscrewed the light bulbs in our family room. I thought it would be funny when bob got up in the morning because he wakes up before it gets light outside. Unfortunately I was sleeping and didn't get to see the response. I also hid all of the toilet paper rolls (except for the one in my bathroom). When I woke up this morning I found that Bob had a few pranks set up himself. He had switched the lids on the milk containers, so my nonfat looked like Tucker's whole milk, and vice versa. He also put a piece of tape on the bottom side of the mouse so it didn't work. It didn't take me very long at all to catch on to both of his tricks. During Tucker's nap, I wanted to do more so I set up a whoopie cushion under the couch pillow. This wasn't the typical whoppie cushion though, it was actually a little speaker that made farting noises and it had a tiny cord on it that led to the trigger button. I showed tucker how to push the button and made sure bob was sitting on the couch. Tucker really had fun with that one. The last prank, and hardest, was the cupcakes I made. They are actually meatloaf with mashed potatoes as frosting. Bob could smell that it was meatloaf right away, so he wasn't fooled, but Tucker thought it was a cupcake. He was so excited when he saw them, I think he liked them more than actal cupcakes. He ate 3!! I thought they tasted good too.
