This resulted in a $35 Value Village dress for me (which I later exchanged for some wearable clothes) and David in a suit. We strode through our college campus and snapped some shots by the blossoming Cherry trees. Of course, we had to do this on March 31 as my parents were already 12 hours ahead of us, and we had to be sure they'd get the email on April 1st and no later!
I don't think we really fooled my mom, but I did get an email back from her with the subject, "congratulations" and an empty message. We did fool a lot of our friends and some complained about having to return gifts!
|And I wore a white lace table-runner as a veil - this (and the dress) were what convinced my mom we were just joking.|
Our other big prank has come around full circle. In 2010, when I was pregnant with Elena, David made an interesting Facebook update which resulted in quite a few people thinking we were having twins...
|Just one little letter made all the difference in this status update...|
|I had a good laugh with my friend Ana on Skype Chat - just love the line, "with you two - i should have expected"|
If you have any doubt that God has a sense of humor, just look where we are now, expecting twins in about two months! If we were to pull a prank today, it would go something like,
"Well, the ultrasound techs were wrong! Logan and Liam will be arriving in May.:)"
Would you fall for it?
