When I was little, I learned this song that I also taught to my own kids.  It was only when I was teaching it to my grandson who looked at me like I was crazy, did I realize that it's kind of a strange, weird and possibly cruel song. 
I got a package in the mail yesterday from my dear friend and Inspiration Cafe partner, Heather from The Beating Hearth.  She had made these cute chicken and turkey pin cushions (she has an obsession) and posted them on her blog a while back and I told her how much I adored them.  Guess what was in my package????
How cute is that??  I know it's a fun pin cushion...but I think it may live in my kitchen for a while.  Makes me smile!  Thank you Heather!  I love it all!
 That song?......
Well, I had a little chicken
And she wouldn't lay an egg
So I ran hot water down the side of her leg
And the little chicken hollered and the little chicken begged
And soon the little chicken laid a hard boiled egg!
Geeze.....no wonder my grandson looked at me like I was crazy!  But then, he's a little crazy himself.... 
 Hope your Christmas is rockin!
