Our first annual Cow Appreciation Day

Yesterday Chik-fil-A gave a way free meals to people dressed up like cows so we dressed the kids all up like cows and met some kids there. It was very fun and the kids had a blast dressing up and seeing all the other people dressed up as well. Here are a few pics.

Outside...Jack had a sign to but left it at home. He really didn't want to dress up at first, but I told him if he wanted to eat then he had to...haha. He loves Chik-Fil-A.

Waiting to order with our friends. We had one of their girls with us so I went up to the counter and told the gal that I had 6 cows with me and she took a deep breath and said...ok...before she took our order.

Elizabeth and her friend Emma. All I could think of was"How Now Brown Cow"

The rest of the cows...minus Creed.
And the cutest cow of all that ate a serious amount of food.

Let me tell you about Flora...

may very well be the slowest wal-mart checker in the history of Wal-mart, but she may also be the sweetest. Head to her line sometime when you are not in a hurry; we all need to slow down anyway. She plays with the baby and talks with the kids. She'll sort all your groceries and bag them accordingly. She ask if your bag is too full and if you want them double bagged. When she is done, she says, "God Bless!"

A Jack Funny

Jack: Anne Michal, I am not whining. It only sounds like I am whining.

Me(less than 5 min later): So are you whining now? Or do you just sound like you are whining?"

I detest shopping. I mean I really detest shopping. Just thinking about makes me break out in a cold sweat. If I have to go to the mall, it really is a disaster. I walk in what is a big building but immediately feel claustrophobic. The lights...the sounds...the sights...Just so not my thing. Yesterday, I went shopping because unfortunately I do have to buy new things sometimes. As I was walking through the mall, I thought"People actually do this regularly for fun!" It really was an astonishing thought. To top it off, my trip to the mall was actually wasted since I really went to return some Land's End stuff to Sears only to find they no longer take Land's End return. This means I'll have to shop even more because I can't just order 5,000 things from LE and then return the ones that don't fit to Sears. And the weirdest things I saw yesterday for sale were snow shovels and snow saucers. I am pretty sure that we don't need those any month of the year where we live! I think I'll just stop her and not even delve into the difficulty of finding decent clothing.
