I made these pillows and the girls stuffed them. Chris calls me an over achiever, but it honestly seemed really simple in my head. Besides you have to go home with a memento! (Those are their initials in case you wondered)
April fools was the next morning and our true holiday enthusiast, Kaylee, made sure to research some suitable pranks for the day. She and Ashton put plastic wrap across the boys doorway, which unfortunately stuck to itself which made it a little easier to see. So Aiden put tape (sticky side out) across the girls doorway, but Ashton was not tricked either. The best trick of the day was a rubber band around the trigger on the sprayer in the sink. I turned on the faucet to rinse off the breakfast dishes and was sprayed. I thought it was a good prank, but I thought it would have been funnier if it had happened to someone else. So we decided to do it to Chris when he came home. The kids have heard enough stories of Chris's childhood so they knew he totally deserved it. When he finally came home Kaylee distracted him, while Ashton set up the prank. When they led him to the kitchen, I didn't want him to know something was up so I followed at a distance. I waited in the entrance to the kitchen and watched. Chris was definitely surprised, but the sprayer was pointed wrong so only his hands got wet. But never fear, I being across the room got soaked.
