Cow Appreciation Day

Chick-fil-a has had an annual Cow Appreciation Day for the last few years.  On that day, dress like a cow and get a free value meal. We participated last year and decided to do it again.

This couple came in while we were eating.  There cow heads were so cute.  I asked if I could take a picture for my blog and they agreed.

This is a picture of the back of our outfits.  We used garbage bags last year but I wanted to make something this year that could be washed and reused next year.   After I got all of the shirts ready, the spots cut out, and the tails cut out, my mom, aunt, and I ironed them all on.  I took advantage of my mom and aunt being in town to help me with the shirts.  Thanks so much for all of your help Momma and Aunt Pat!

We cut out all of the ears out of the felt for my family and my friend, Candy’s family and sent them with her husband for him to sew the elastic headbands and ears to the elastic for our reusable ears.  Thanks Anthony for your help!

We had a lot of fun today.  It was a lot of fun and we all enjoyed our free value meals.  Thanks Chick-fil-a for having Cow Appreciation Day!

Looking forward to next year :)
