The cutest cows EVER

If you are a fan of Chick-fil-A then you know that this month they celebrated Cow Appreciation Day.

Seeing as we live in Georgia and have 2 Chick-fil-A's within 5 minutes and 5 within 15 minutes, we are HUGE fans!! Rarely, do we miss out on an opportunity to get free Chick-fil-A. Back in June we went to Chick-fil-A and the guy who rang us up said, "dress like a cow and get free chicken". Junior Mint heard "dress like a cow" and I heard "free chicken". Now, if you know my son you know he is deathly afraid of the Chick-fil-A cow, however dressing like a cow is a whole other story. From then on, about once a week he would ask when he got to put on his cow costume. Right before Cow Appreciation Day I decided we would make the boys' costumes. Junior mint had so much fun helping and they turned out wonderful. I took the boys for their free chicken and then Junior Mint wanted Mommy and Daddy to dress like a cow too. So, we went back home and made Mommy and Daddy shirts and off we went to Chick-fil-A for dinner too!! The kids thought they were in heaven!

We did discover that Twix LOVES the cow and Junior Mint is still highly scared of him, however he has kindly decided he can hide his face from him so his Bubby can touch the cow.

The boys had SO much fun and it took me 3 days for Junior Mint to understand that Cow Appreciation day isn't every day! He is already asking "when is it cow day again?"

Aren't these the cutest cows you have EVER seen??

Our not so little man!

Our littlest man isn't so little anymore. We just celebrated his 1st birthday! He is 19.5 lbs and only about 8 inches shorter than his 3 year old brother! Side note: He is only about 11 lbs away from his brother too!

He is walking...really running everywhere! He is into EVERYTHING he can be. He sleeps SO well and loves to nap. He plays hard and sleeps harder! Twix loves his Bubby; loves to annoy him too. He likes to get him into trouble now. If Junior Mint touches him he will look around to see if we are watching and if we are, he will cry. I think he is starting to understand that isn't going to get Junior Mint in trouble.

Twix loves to cuddle and give kisses. He isn't speaking more words, but I think that is because his wonderful brother decides to talk for him most of the time.

They both are a handful. Twix can be into everything and Junior Mint can be a typical 3 year old, but they couldn't be more of a joy!!
