Makin' Babies!

No, not me....although I did pull a good April Fool's joke on my mother-in-law. Last year she was in Hawaii around late April - early May which is when I found out I was pregnant with Chase. I had been working outside every day with the kids cleaning the yard and pulling weeds in hope of putting in a large garden. Then the morning sickness struck. It was crippling...all day sickness! I had emailed my mother-in-law to tell her I was pregnant, but I sort of snuck it into the email like it was nothing. She reread the email several times before it sunk in that I really was pregnant. I remember her saying, "I kept reading, waiting to see if you were going to say, "I'm joking." "

So on April 1st I emailed her again saying, "Last year at this time, I emailed you saying I couldn't work in the yard anymore because I was so sick from being pregnant. Well this year, I did not even get a chance to start. I guess the garden will have to wait one more year after one more baby."

A few hours later I received a took her awhile but she figured out it was an April Fool's joke :)
