"There's a dead COW in the backyard!"

That is what the kids came running into my room this morning to tell me.

Apparently there is a dead cow in the backyard.

Here is how the conversation went:

Nolan: "Mommy, I've got some bad news for you."
Me: "What?"
Nolan: "There is a dead cow in the backyard or something. It's covered with snow."
Me: "Really? A dead cow?"
Nolan: "Yeah, it's just laying there in the backyard...you gotta come and see! And I'm not kidding!"

and then Gideon ran in...

Gideon: "Mommy, did Nolan tell you about the dead cow?"
Me: "Yeah!"
Gideon: "Where did you get a dead cow?"
Me: "I'm thinking it's not a dead cow, silly."

and Haddon ran in....

Haddon: "Mommy! Mommy! The cow is maybe dead or sleeping!"


It's always nice to start your morning with a good laugh!

Here is the 'dead cow':


Oh, and did I mention that we have SNOW!?! This is going to be an interesting winter...I can feel it already!

They get their imagination from their "grammy" I guess. As a child I once saw a bunny in a bush. I was so disappointed when my mother pulled out a little blanket instead.
