Horse Feathers (or is it one word?)

Remember how my older kids taught Pedro to replace the word "uneducated" for the word "stupid"?

They have now brought to my attention how often I say the word "crap" by teaching Pedro to tell me that crap is not a nice word (I know it already!) and to replace it with "horse feathers" (horesefeathers?).

Whatever would I do without the little gems?

Oh horsefeathers! I say you can say what you want. :)
Thanks for the card, adorable kids as always. Don't think I'm going to get mine out this year since it's Christmas Eve. Have a great Christmas! :)

Crap is a perfectly acceptable word but you need to put the word "bull" in front of it.

What would be the acceptable substitute for "I hate you!"? That is Kate's phrase that I am unsuccessfully trying to stop her from saying!

I hope you had a great Christmas!

Recently I have heard "crap" spoken from the pulpit in Testimony meeting- that is just one of several words getting a lot too frequent usage. I am trying to break that one too- haven't used horse feathers- maybe I should try that
