Cousins!

Our cousins from Minnesota came down for a spontaneous Spring Break visit. How fun! (This would be  my brother Jason and family. You all know them as Von's family :) )
The girls stopped to see the horses before they even came in the house. So cute.
My beautiful nieces.....

My sister Marlita and I planned an April Fool's dessert prank: 

Pickle Cake with confetti sprinkles and blue sour cream (fat free) icing.

 I forgot to take a picture of it before but it looked sooooo......delicious and the kids were so excited to eat it together!

Nobody said a word for the longest time, but I had my camera handy to capture the expressions.






Only ONE kid ate the entire piece of 'cake' without grimacing.....His wife is sure gonna have it easy, huh?
Here's a cheap entertainment idea for you: See who can retrieve the Walmart bag on a windy day....

Note to self: Do not waste any more money on Christmas presents......

Those expressions were too cute for words! What a unique April Fools joke...they'll never forget it and you can probably expect a retaliation at some time. LOL.

Love,
