Turkey is an Animal

We had our first snow of the season a couple days ago.  I guess it must have been about an inch.

Today Lisa was talking to Finn and telling him about going to Aunt Robin's house for Thanksgiving. She was telling him we would have pumpkin pie and turkey. He said, "Turkey???" She said "yes, everbody eats turkey on Thanksgiving." And he says in a distraught high pitched voice, "Noooooo. Turkey is an animal. We don't eat Turkey!" Lisa says he must be the future vegetarian in the family.  In related news, a publisher has been charged with criticizing Turkey.

Bless You

When Finn sneezes or has a runny nose, he gets a tissue to wipe the "bless you."

Asleep at the Laptop

When Finn was sick last week, he fell asleep in some funny places because he was so tired but refused to lie down on his bed...

That's a yak

In Sunday School last Sunday, Finn's teacher was reading a book about creation to the class.  On each page she was asking the three kids to name what they saw.  Finn, of course, was full of his usual verbal eloquence.  On page describing the creation of the animals, Finn was proudly saying, "That's a giraffe.  That's a rhinoceros.  That's a hippopotamus."  Then the teacher pointed to an unusual-looking animal and said, "What about this guy?  I'm not sure what he is.  Maybe a bull?"  Finn proceeded to say, "No!  That's a yak."  Lisa and Diane (teacher) busted out in laughter, and Finn was embarrassed and wouldn't look at Lisa for the rest of the class.  Lisa still doesn't know where he learned about yaks, but maybe it was on the Y page of an alphabet book.
