Could we be more redneck?

Not only do my children routinely run around outside pantsless
but, oh yeah, those are real live dead ducks my daughters are snuggling holding!
I just feel so sorry for this poor animal. Thankfully he is not aware of the indignities he suffers at the hands of my daughters, being dead and all.
Libby just found out that not only does she not get to keep her new duck forever, but said duck is about to become dinner.
That's right I cooked those suckers up for dinner!
Like I said, red. neck.
I didn't actually see her do it, but I am pretty sure that Libby may have given her duck a kiss on the beak.
I made her wash thoroughly just in case.

Hey, I think we ALL have a little red neck in us...it just comes out in different ways. These pics are CLASSIC. Won't that be a fun little series to show dates???

That would be a common sight around here too. A couple months ago the guys were cleaning up deer and our 4 year old neighbor girl carried around the legs all night. Gross.

OH.My.Goodness! Too funny! I'm a city folk with parents from West Virginia so I have experienced both worlds, but never have I seen that ;-)! LOVE IT!!

Looks like our house, except instead of ducks my girls would have quail!

Raise Them Up said...

Forget the ducks...I'm looking at how warm it looks at your house. Can I come over? :)

Your girls are quite like my boys, by the way. Only they would be poking dead possums instead.

Kmama said...

Oh.My.Goodness. That is hilarious. Definitely pics to keep and show the boyfriends/husbands.

Emily said...

Um. Ew. Oh well, at least when Jack goes out to hunt Libby will be brave enough to cook up his dead animals. Poor Alex married a wimp when it comes to that!

shopannies said...

my thoughts are (1) either she will cherish these pictures as a teen girl or (2) she will denigh them in her teen years to all

blueviolet said...

You mean you know how to feather, degut, behead, and all that? Wowza woman!

Momisodes said...

OMG! Kudos to you. I'm such a city girl. I could never de-feather cook a bird like that. I wouldn't even know how!

Summer said...

Oh my goodness! This is TOO funny! I don't think I've ever held a dead animal (unless it was already de-feathered...haha)

Go get 'em girls!!!

Susie said...

That is a little bit country and I am a little bit rock n' roll:-)

Ashley said...

Hmmmm... what exactly will be going into your taco soup this week??? :)

Krystyn said...

Seriously, that is hilarious! But, I don't know what is funnier...the pantless girls, or the kissing of the dead birds.

Jenny said...

My granddaughters would have a total meltdown. Actually I think my kids would, too...! Interesting post, though.

imbeingheldhostage said...

how sad. Could you please get your girls something LIVE to play with? (although, these were probably much easier to keep track of and care for) ;-)

What is it with girls and the thrill of nekkedness? We have a wardrobe packed with adorable things and my daughter runs around half dressed most days.

Brenda said...

That is pretty funny. But I think I admire you more for cooking that duck! I have never done that.

Holly at Tropic of Mom said...

I don't know, your yard looks perfect. Not rednecky enough. ;)

Mommy Memories said...

wow, I don't exactly know whether to be impressed or horrified! The dead birds do me in, the pantless kids are the same as here but no dead birds and I have boys!

Jackie at 3littleones said...

OMG - I wasn't sure whether I should just laugh out loud or squirm b/c of the ducks - haha!!!! I needed a good laugh this morning. Your kids are adorable - dead ducks and all :) I hope they were tasty.

John Deere Mom said...

Stop the bus. I am assuming those were hunted and not just like, roadkill. That's my first concern. My second concern is that you cooked them. How do you, like, cook it when it has feather...and feed...and a head?!
You would think a farm girl wouldn't have such concerns...but I do!
AND, what's up with the grass? And the greenness? We have snow that is blowing and drifting up to Claire's head!

Bethany said...

Haha...wow, I'd love to know how you cooked them though!
