I had to purchase rolling bags because apparently my man is tired of, "getting a hernia," every time he has to lug our humongo tree up into the attic. I reminded him that the kind man at Hobby Lobby (love and support that store) told me it was one of their lightest trees. And since my man is pretty manly (most days, unless you ask him to lug the humongo tree up to the attic) I thought it wouldn't be a problem. Guess I was wrong!
In fact, he refused to put our beautiful 9 foot, pre-lit tree up in the attic one more time. So, the naked tree sits alone in the corner waiting for the new rolling bags. Poor tree!
Okay, enough about that....one of my favorite things for Christmas, and you know that I have several favorite memories, but one of my favorite things was this Holy Cow toy that I purchased at Walgreens.
It's a plastic toy that shoots foam balls up to 24 feet. And for every cow purchased, $2 went to Toys for Tots. Win, win!I saw it on the Ellen Show and just knew they would bring some joy and lots of fun. I was right! I put one in my dad's stocking. Surprise:
I love the glint of pure orneriness in his eyes in this image:
And my mom's face as she too knows that look very well!
Uh, huh! I mean, Holy Cow! Look out! I'll give you two guesses as to whom he was aiming.
If you guessed my girls, his granddaughters, you were right! Look out girls!
I took mine to school this week....and it was FUN! It's a great stress reliever. Maybe the state of Texas needs to issue teachers with one of these Holy Cow's the week of STARR/TAKS testing week. Holy Cow! It's a great stress reliever!
