Mr Yoder locked her out.:)
The kids were surprised I hadn't played a joke. Being Jerry Young's aka... king of all pranks and jokes, daughter, I usually do. Then they started to reminisce about some of there favorites. Once I made grape jello in their cups and put a straw in it. They were still pretty little so the sucking and sucking went on for a long time before they figured it out. That was my favorite. Another time I had Ron call me from work. I pretended he was the school calling to say that a water main had broken and school was cancelled for the day. They were so excited. That was probably a bit rotten of me.
So I have had this one brewing in my brain for a while. But I was just a little busy today and still feeling a bit Eastery, not in a teasing mood I guess, just thought I would skip it. But how can I not keep up tradition after that dinner chat.
It hit the open dishwasher door first and only got that big chip in it so the tear was a good last minute addition.
There was a great deal of excitement and high drama. I got the ENTIRE family in one shot! So funny.
Michael spent over 30 minutes VERY carefully looking for his beloved pet. One at a time I let the rest of the family in on my joke. Ron needed to relax and Heather needed to go to bed. Is there anything more awesome for a little kid than to be part of pulling one over on an older sibling. She was smiling from ear to ear as she skipped off to bed.
Finally after gingerly moving things around in the kitchen with the lights off and a black light in hand it dawned on Michael what I had done. He was a great sport.
Here is Rico safe and sound and ohhh sooo creepy! Can you believe I have put up with that thing in my house for over two months! Seriously gives me the heebie jeebies!
