We Want to Know Wednesdays

I have been blogging a long time now- over four years and this meme, We Want to Know Wednesdays is one I used to participate back when it was under different ownership and thought it would be fun to join in again.

The questions this week are

1) Did you get any April Fools' pranks played on you this year?
   Sort of-- when I picked my daughter up from school she told me that she did not get a stamp that day (what they get at the end of the day if they have been good).  Really? I asked to which she immediately replied "April Fools", she was very proud of herself.
   I did pull a joke myself- I cut out a bunch of letter E's on brown paper and stuck them in a pan covered with foil and then told my kids (and later my husband) that I made brownies.  They got all excited and ran over to look and saw the Brown-E's.   I sure thought it was funny.

2) Do you take well to jokes of this nature?
  If they are little and harmless then yep totally good.  If they hurt someone/something than no good!

3) What makes you laugh?
    Lately my toddler and his funny sense of humor makes me laugh.  My husband makes me laugh almost daily by either being silly or telling me funny things that happened at work.  I guess just lots of little things in life.  Crude, mean things don't make me laugh-- well most of the time.

4) What movie did you last laugh at?
   Wreck it Ralph

5) What is your favorite funny movie?
   I hate favorite questions-- first movies that popped into my head was Legally Blond and How to Lose a Guy in 10 Days

That was fun!   Today I get to announce the winner for the book "Parenting with Spiritual Power".

I used and the winner is:

What I love about being a parent is the laughter my children bring to our home. That and many more things, but I picked the one that was on my mind the most today!
Congrats Xazmin!  I will be contacting you for your address.

Come back tomorrow for Proud Mommy Moments-- mine is an interesting one tomorrow as it involves a lot of Mommy Guilt since I forgot to pick up Lucas from school, come back tomorrow to find why this is making my Proud Mommy Moment.


  1. Ha ha that's so cute that Alex played an April Fool's joke!

  2. Yes, Wreck it Ralph was funnier than I thought it would be. Lots of old school references. Thanks for linking up!

  3. I love both april fool's day jokes! I didn't play one or get played but I saw some funny emails from various was for a babysitter app that watches your kids. Brown-E's, that is so fun!

  4. Ah, that "Brown-E" trick is pretty cute! Stuff like that would definitely be OK with me, but like you said, mean-spirited or hurtful pranks don't fly with me...
    How to Lose a Guy in 10 Days... that was a great one! I loved Matthew McConaughey and Kate Hudson together, very funny!!

  5. I like harmless jokes too. The Brown Es makes me laugh! We didn't really play any jokes this year. My husband did tell us that there was a brand new baby fawn outside {which could totally happen, we have 400 million animals roaming about our property}. We were pretty bummed it was a joke ;)

  6. Totally love April Fool's Day.
    Love harmless joking.

    This year at work, I took out the filling of an Oreo Cookie.
    OK maybe about a dozen.

    And I replaced the filling with Ultra Brite toothpaste.
    It was awesome.

  7. Cute! I love that your daughter had a little April Fool's joke all ready for you! We are on break this week. Seems everyone is BACK in school. We completely forgot about April Fools! I'll have to try your brown E's next year! Love it!

  8. aw, that's a cute April Fool's joke Alex made. I don't like the big ones, or ones that are really upsetting. Hahaha, you're so mean with the brown E's joke! lol!

  9. I couldn't think of any April fools jokes this year. I love Alex's joke!
    I loved Wreck It Ralph, I could watch it over and over.

  10. I have never heard of Wreck it Ralph. And I love Legally Blonde but I think the 2nd one was a little tooo far fetched.

  11. I laugh at life too!!!! I love "How to Lose A Guy In 10 Days."

  12. I saw that brownie joke somewhere and wished I had thought to do that.

  13. Wreck It Ralph is a funny movie. We enjoyed it.

  14. Brown-E's....ha ha that was cute!
    My family would totally not find that funny unless I actually had a stash of real brownies made

  15. Brown E's! Genius! :o)

    How was Wreck It Ralph? I've wanted to see that since it was in theaters, but haven't had the opportunity.

  16. Your daughter's April Fool's joke was cute :D
    I love that you made brown E's! I thought of doing that but didn't have any brown paper ha ha.
    Thank you for linking up with us!! I remember when I first started blogging I did WWTK, then it went on hiatus and I was so bummed. I am so glad that I was asked to co-host it!

  17. I LOVE the brown E's joke! That is great!

    I got Wreck it Ralph for the kids for Easter and we still haven't watched it yet.

  18. I like potty humor. It makes me laugh. I'm so immature.

  19. My sister in law did the "Brown E's" too. But then she pulled out real brownies, but they had green food coloring in the middle. ;-)

  20. "Brown E's"--so cute! I might have to use that next year!

  21. Wreck it Ralph was so cute...and funny! Tons of Easter Eggs in there. I didn't end up doing Brown E's I was so miserable and some how Rich discovered it. Poop. So, I skipped it.

  22. I still need to watch Wreck It Ralph. We bought it and the kids have seen it 13 times but Ive managed to escape. :)

  23. Brown E's! Bwahaha....I love it!
