Do you appreciate cows?

I love Chick-Fil-A. They always have some sort of crazy free promotion going on, and the last one was Cow Appreciation Day, where you can dress up like a cow and get a free meal. We couldn't pass that up, but we don't have cow costumes on hand (like Leisy, here), so we had to get a little creative.

First we each colored our own masks. (Is there anything that can't be Googled? Seriously, four seconds on the internet gave me at least 17 options in the way of cow masks.) Olivia went traditional, white with black spots. Mimi went with the Red Angus, I was a Jersey (or a Guernsey? I don't really know my cow breeds), and Annabel colored herself up something exotic in blue and purple.

Then I ironed irregular freezer paper spots onto our outfits (Mimi's fell off in the car, and Bella refused to wear her prepared spotted shirt) and made us felt bells on ribbon necklaces. (This is why everyone needs both a felt stash and a ribbon stash. Who knows when one will be called upon to make a cowbell?)
The "chikin" was delicious. (Free makes it more delicious, don't you think?)

What is there not to love about Chick Fil A? The lemonade is to die for. The chicken (enough said), and the fries are so much fun with their waffle shapes. I've never heard about the cow day though! Dang! Hopefully next year.....
