It’s beginning to look a lot like Christmas at Walmart!

I was looking for floor lamps at Walmart yesterday but after I didn’t find what I really wanted, I stopped by the holiday aisles to take a look at all the Christmas decorations and see if I could add to my collection.

Well, I ended up not buying anything there but I managed to add to my online cow collection with this very nice skiing cow Christmas decoration!

Here it is from the other side. For $29.98, it’s a great deal.

If you remember, one of my Christmas tree ornaments is a skating cow but I think this beats it for sure. You know Christmas is coming when the cows are taking out their winter gear!

Are you ready to play the game “caption this picture”?

I saw a very funny board game a couple of days ago at Target called Bubble Talk. You have to match a funny caption (supplied on a card) with a funny photo and the funniest caption wins. Look at the front of the box so you can have an idea of how this game works:

Oh, that is sooooo my kind of board game! Now, take a look at the photo used on the back of the box:

Uh-oh, I’m glad I’m not the one stuck up there! Are you ready to play the game and come up with a caption or bubble for this funny cow photo? I’ll start. You leave your caption/bubble in the Comments section below.

- “Great. How am I going to explain this to Farmer John?”

- “Hey, Daisy! Isn’t this how you do the monkey bars?”

- “Maggie said she got her udder job that way but I think she lied.”

Your turn!

Thank you very much for your time and support. And I promise you, there are more cows coming up. A lot of them!

It’s another cow LED keyring!

I stopped by my local Michael’s art & craft store this weekend to look for a specific art supply (Liquid Rainbow window paint to do crafts like these). The Liquid Rainbow website told me Michael’s carried their line, but apparently not the window paint, so I left empty handed. But not before I saw a cow there. Actually, it was not one but several cows, and several pigs were keeping them company. Check out these cute pig and cow LED keyrings:

Here’s a close-up of the cow, and it really moos!

I wonder what would happen if you had one of these in your purse and you pressed the button by mistake by standing in the checkout line of a store… By the way, if you like this very cute LED cow keyring, you can buy it on Amazon.

This cow is doing something no cow has ever done before

I got to see my daily cow early today. Very early. As in, breakfast time early. It was quietly waiting for me on the kitchen table, where I was about to place my kids’ breakfast plates.

Are you ready to see it? Ta-da!

Look, it’s Safety Zone’s Big first grade workbook with a cow, and a pig, and a duck on the cover! Did you see what they’re in? A space shuttle! And the cow is driving it. I can truly say this cow is doing something no cow has ever done before. That’s how smart kids will be when they finish this workbook. I can’t wait.

Actually I really can’t say anything bad about this Big first grade workbook because I really like it and so does my kid. All of the Safety Zone workbook series are very well designed, with lots of colorful activities that are fun to complete and kids get to learn and practice a lot, without even realizing it.

I just can’t get that image of the cow driving a space shuttle out of my mind, though. Can you?
