The big girls and Ms. Brittany making the cow shirts. We used two of Wayne's older undershirts, bought a 3 pack of boys undershirts for $5 at Wal-Mart, I had a white onesie and little boys undershirt. We had most of the paint but ended up buying a little bit more at Wal-Mart. All I did was take a black fabric pen and draw random cow spots on the shirts. Then we painted the shirts with permanent black paint. The girls are ages 6-14 (Not counting Ms Brittany who is an adult).
Here is Bullet and you can still see the unpainted cow spots. They had so much fun painting these shirts. Next, year we are going to make headbands for ears and add cow tails to the outfits!
Here are the shirts hanging on the clothes line to dry. From this picture it looks like these shirts were painted by a team of adult perfectionists. Nope, you just cant see the precious little finger prints and smudges!
Here we all are at Chick-Fil-A in the front is Ms.Bethany who hung out with us all day as we ran errands, went to a homeschool conference.
Much to our great delight one of our sister churches (our original church started 2 new churches) was also there in force and we all sat together fellowshipping and catching up on each other's lives.
Then our Small Group from Church showed up (You'll see Ms. Brittany in the front behind Sugarpie) to eat with us!
Now we are washing and putting the cow shirts up for next year and will as I said earlier add cow ears, tails and maybe even udders next year and we may need to make new shirts for the twins and any new Roosterhillians.
This is a wonderful way to make memories as a family from painting the shirts to fellowshipping with friends this was a big winner! We'll see you next year at Chick-Fil-A!
Please vote for us a free Chick-fil-A gift card and party at Chick Fil A Cow Appreciation Site. The picture isn't very good the gal that took them didn't focus the lens. :( But don't worry you are voting for the family not the picture!
