The chicken gifts continue to roll in. Still a few unopened gifts (we have been dealing with another pet crisis) so I hesitate to say this is the last word on the subject. One never knows what lurks in a stocking. But I need a smile today and hopefully, so do you, so here are the latest additions to my chicken-themed inventory:
Tina, John and their girls visited for a few days and brought chicken goodwill along with them. This chicken apron seems too nice to put to work in the coop, doesn’t it?
I have a passion for chickens and for Christmas ornaments, so this one is a treasure. Tina said the store she was in had a tree trimmed entirely in chicken ornaments – good thing I wasn’t there or the CE would now have a 66th box of holiday decorations to put away. Yes, he counted, and claims there are sixty-five separate Christmas-esque boxes to store in the garage. This means I am in big, big trouble if I order those half-price Santas I was looking at online yesterday…
Pamela surprised me with this cute tape dispenser on New Year’s Eve. Apparently there is no deadline for chicken gifting, which is a scary thought. Could there be more chickens en route for MLK day or Presidents’ Weekend?
Technically, this last gift is a real turkey, so to speak, but since Tina asked about it, I’ll bend the rules and include it. When someone asks the CE what he got for Christmas 2012, this is the gift he will remember. Daniel, you really, really shouldn’t have, but we’re glad you did. The turkey hat is already firmly entrenched in family lore.
And this is a one-size-fits all kind of hat. Look who I found wearing it:
Hope your 2013 is off to a happy start!
