Cow Appreciation Day

In case there is anyone out there who doesn't know, our family is BIG Chick-Fil-A fans. It is something that I inherited from my inlaws, and we eat there quite often. The food is VERY yummy.

Anyway, they have an annual "Cow Appreciation Day" where they will give you FREE food for dressing like a cow. We've never done it before, but we thought it would be lots of fun.

I didn't really decide to do in until the night before. So, I stayed up late creating costumes. And then most of the morning finishing them up. I Guess that the food wasn't technically free since I did spend about $10 on the costumes. But, it was still fun. And it was a very entertaining night.

I'm a little bummed that I didn't get any pictures of what I worked the hardest on - the kid's shorts. I was quite proud of them as I made them both in about an hour without using a pattern.

Here's the family. Yes, I am aware that I look pretty awful. That's what I get for working ALL day and half the night on the costumes.

My kids are super cute:

(In case you are wondering, I did NOT make the baby's costume. It was a $2 deal I got on clearance after Halloween last year. I'm glad I was able to use it!)

Yummy Food!

Happy cows!

The Winners!
There was a "best cow" contest. The categories were "best costume" which Ainzlee won, "best cow strut", which Brandon won, and Best Moo and the Cow Toss - another guy won both of those. So, by popular vote, Ainzlee won 2nd place, and Brandon was 3rd.
They got these fancy certificates (ooo, ahh!)

I thought it was a lot of fun, and I'm glad we went. Can't wait until next year!
