my boys keep trying to trick us though... occasionally they will sneak one in their pocket in the mornings before going out to our chicken coop to collect the eggs. then one of them runs in yelling about how we have a chicken that is laying golden eggs! you should see their faces as we play along, pretending to be amazed.
it's all fun and games until one brother throws a lovely golden egg at the other. when it doesn't break, their jig is up.
mommy gets her decoration back.
