On holidays, I try to make breakfast festive. This is a great tradition because it's fun, easy, and quick. It doesn't take much to dress up breakfast.
Wednesday, however, we were out the door and on the way to school when I caught sight of a man wearing a green shirt and a green tie. I realized I'd forgotten to do a holiday breakfast for St. Patrick's Day! It probably would have consisted of nothing more than dying the milk green, but still, that would have been fun.
To keep from making the same mistake, I made a special note in my calendar for April Fools' Day. We've had a lot of fun with that holiday in the past. What prank should I play this year? I have to figure that out. Your ideas welcome.
