How do you do April Fools Day?

I usually try to do something little to trick the kids.

But, one of the funniest pranks was one we pulled on my Brother-in-Law.

My brother and sister-in-law were in town visiting along with my husbands parents.

They had just purchased a new SUV. 

Since they are from a small town, and we live just outside a BIG city, we decided that we would pretend their new vehicle got stolen.

Everyone was in on it except my B-I-L.

We drove the SUV around the corner.

In the morning when he went outside to get something out of the vehicle ~  it. was. gone.

He was a bit stressed and didn't think it was very funny. 

The joke probably only lasted 5 minutes, but I thought it was funny.

So....

What do you do for April Fools Day?

What are your best pranks?

I am saving a positive pregnancy test for the perfect April fools day...and I could probably get away with doing it this year and not give my husband a heart attack...but I have heard of empty nesters playing this joke on their husbands...
