Mean or Funny?

I just got done making "dinner" for tomorrow night (April Fool's Day). I have never done anything for April Fool's Day before, but thought this might be fun. We are having fish sticks made out of cookies, peanut butter, and rice crispies cereal and peas made out of green laffy taffy. So the debate in my house tonight, is this mean or funny? Note: I know one particular child is going to cry before he tries it since he knows he won't like it.

How far can $30 go?

I had a great shopping trip today between Kroger and Target. I got all of this for just under $30 and I left with $10 in giftcards, so essentially it was all $20! I love how Kroger spells out your savings on the receipt for you. According to the receipt, I saved over $95 and only spent $17 for a total savings of 85%. I wish Target had that on their receipts too.

It is hard to see everything in the picture, but I got:
5 boxes of cereal
2 boxes of Nutri-grain bars
4 large boxes of poptarts
Dinosaur eggs oatmeal
Cars fruit snacks
4 12 pack of cokes
9 32 oz of Powerade Zero
8 cans of Del Monte diced tomatoes
Morningstar sausages
2 Hormel ready to eat roasts
3 pounds of bananas
3 DiGiorno pizza and Breadsticks
3 regular DiGiorno Pizzas
Pediasure Nutripals
DiGiorno Personal 200 calorie pizza

Finally pictures from our Colorado trip. Dustin and I went to Colorado Springs, just the 2 of us, for a long weekend back in December. We had a blast and really fell in love with that area. We would love to take a family trip there this year sometime.
