We are finishing up a whirlwind trip to Arizona. One of the kids got sick on the drive, which put a damper on things. Luckily, everyone was recovered enough to make it to the two games we had tickets for. We’re heading back to LA this morning, much to Annabel’s dismay. “I just love Arizona so much!”

~Last year I stumbled across some super-cute spring training shirts, so I was on the look out for them again this year. I found Annabel this “Pitch Perfect” tee, while James got a “Play Ball” shirt. I think the backs of the shirts are almost cuter than the fronts.
~April Fool’s Day is this week, and Annabel has been giddy over the possibility of being pranked. Last year I made her a fake grilled cheese sandwich and a fake chocolate cake…kind of mad at myself for blowing two good ideas in one year! Mike put together a list of funny ideas at BuzzFeed so I might do one of those (I mean, the Brown Es, so easy), but if anyone has a cute kid idea, let me know. One of my grandma’s favorite pranks was string in the spaghetti but I think a) Annabel is way too young for that, and b) James would just eat the string anyway because he eats everything.
March for Babies
~It’s time for your weekly March for Babies reminder! Have you signed up to march with us in person or in spirit? It’s free to join and only takes a few minutes of your time! Thank you to everyone who has signed up and donated so far – you all are amazing! I am way under my goal of $5,500 this year so every little bit helps moms and babies. You can also use your social capital to share my post about the March of Dimes’ mission, as getting the word out is so important.
Happy Sunday, everyone!
One year I made “hot dogs” for breakfast. Peanut butter coated bananas in buns. They loved them!

Oh, those Frozen predictions are pretty wild! Personally, I hope the Frozen franchise continues on strong because my teen girls were gifted with some Disney stock several years ago. As a matter of fact, my youngest has to pay taxes this year because her stock netted more than the allowable earned interest. I’d like the stock value to keep going up so it can help pay for some college expenses! Go Disney!
How about meatloaf cupcakes?
I went crazy for those Peek baseball shirts again this year! They are just too cute. Love Annie’s, makes me wish I had a girl!

I was so excited when I saw someone post Mike’s April Fools post last week. I was thinking, “Hey, I bloggy know him!”
My sister in law loved when I shared the link, since we can trick our kids together.
We couldn’t believe how many commenters were anti tricky fun. My seven year old can’t wait… So a bid thanks for making it easier for us with the list:)
Just wait a few years, Annabel will have you listening to the latest boy band, and against your better judgement, you’ll even like the music.
