Here is the part where I feel like mom of the year. I got on the computer and printed out four cow masks. The kids colored them and I attached ribbon to the back. Luke had the great idea to use kitchen garbage bags and tape black paper spots on the chest. We completed the outfits for Luke and Sammie.
Here is where I completely lose my mind in the name of a free lunch: I put on a black top and a black and white skirt...and a cow mask. Did we go to the local Chic-fil-e where I'm sure half the restaurant were dressed like cows? No. That would have been too easy. I had the brilliant idea to go to the mall Chic-fil-e so I could do some returns after lunch.
Fine, except we were the only people in the mall food court dressed as cows. The low point was when we approached the register and the manager looked us over to determine if we were to receive free meals or just free entrees. I felt like a piece of meat (that was a lame joke.) I even had Ryan wearing a mask--he eats a whole kids meal so he had to pay the piper. We got our entire lunch for free!
Here we are enjoying it. The kids had the good sense to take off their costumes to eat:
We are right on track!
ps. Everyone should go look at Sam's comment on my "If I were the Bachelorette" post. It's pretty funny. And thanks to everyone for the advice on my stinky washing machine. We did the affresh cleaners this weekend and I'm using vinegar. This is why I love blogging!
