our weekend in photos, I present to you: Our Cow Family
Well we proved to Chick-fil-a that we were no chickens and got free breakfast, lunch, and dinner. That’s right three full meals. We made a day of it and have so many good memories to look back on. Karston’s excitement kept him up pretty late Thursday night. Thursday day I let the kids paint spots on their shirts and told them I would finish their costumes after they went to sleep. Here are some quotes from Karston as he lay in bed in anticipation for Friday.
“We’re gonna be a family of cows!”
“I am so excited!”
“Mommy, can you make me horns?”
“And a nose and mouth. I want a cow nose and mouth.”
“Oh, and I want milk.”
Me: “Milk? You mean an udder?”
Karston: “Yeah! An udder! I want an udder.”
Me: “I’ll see. I’m not sure I’ll have time to make you an udder.”
Made me laugh. And no, I didn’t have time for an udder. I made shorts for Karston and a skirt for Kyrie out of an old white sheet I had. Spots on a onesie for The Manon. Spots on a white t-shirt and black construction paper spots taped onto long underwear pants for Mark. Spots on a drop waist dress with ruffles around the collar made out of two white t-shirts for me. I actually really liked the style of my dress and plan on making me some more (in non-cow print fabric of course). We all wore cow tails made out of braided black and white yarn. We also printed out the cow ears off of Chick-fil-a’s website and taped them to headbands we already had. SOOO much fun. I’m already thinking of costumes for next year!
I also DID NOT have to go into a gas station to prepay for gas dressed like a cow. And the guy behind me DID NOT ask me, “What is it dairy day at work?” And I totally DID NOT give the guy a look and say, “Umm, no it’s free food at Chick-fil-a, of course.”
I also DID NOT have to answer the door to the mailman dressed like a cow. And I DID NOT have to turn around and show him my cow tail as I was running to the kitchen to grab a bill I needed mailed…….
