LOG CABIN FEVER!

We ran out of chicken feed this morning-SO, we made the 14 mile trek INTO TOWN to get more. I ran in and got the bag while the 6 littles watched Tinkerbell. Then-dropped a box of HEALTHY CHOCOLATE off to a friend. We haven't been out of the house since SATURDAY! It has been raining since Sunday making it entirely TOO MUDDY to play outside. NO, I DO NOT LET MY KIDS PLAY IN THE MUD-my minuscule brain doesn't even like to think such things

Then to THE DREADED WALLY WORLD! They ALL begged to go in, so in we went. What was I thinking? Just picture THE DYSFUNCTIONAL BRADY BUNCH in your head. That's what people probably thought when they saw us. WHY? I broke all of my "taking my kids out in public rules." Here are the VIOLATIONS-
  1. Cowboy boots with sweats (what on earth?)
  2. My girls hair not put up to my standards and 1 even had her hair down(gasp)
  3. No ones hair combed
  4. All in not matching clothes
  5. Bit Buts shirt so short his baby muffin top was out...
  6. Dried up, crusty boogers on the nose
  7. Frosting caked on faces from cinnamon rolls this a.m.

That's just to name a few. They were all very well behaved. I ran into 2 friends-OF COURSE-just what you hope DOESN'T happen when you take your unkempt tribe out.

We looked at the FISH for about 30 minutes and then Wy Wy spotted this...

Ever since Wy Wy and Bit But moved in their big boy room and big boy beds-we have been searching for cute, affordable bedding for their beds. WHICH IS TOUGH because it was already painted as a guest room and the bunk beds are blue. One side has animals on it and the other side is a forest-ADORABLE.

It came with comforter, acorn & animal paw print sheets, pillow case & pillow sham all for $45 a set. CHA CHING! And, it's all made out of organic cotton-BONUS! Plus it DOES have some John Deere Green on it-whoopee!! With a large family-we are ALWAYS looking for a bargain!

Of course they had to JUMP RIGHT IN and try it out.Isn't it SO CUTE???So today I thank God & Wally World for the entertainment, the bedding and THE JOHN DEERE GREEN GOGURTS!

I love the bedding.
I have similar rules for taking just my ONE child out in public, but those type of rules are meant to be broken, once in a while.
Look on the bright side, at least your "unkempt" kids were well behaved. ;)

I laugh every time I hear about Wy Wy's John Deere Green obsession. And then I get this song stuck in my head - Please tell me you've heard "John Deere Green" by Joe Diffie?

Here are the lyrics - the song is cute! http://www.countrygoldusa.com/john_deere_greene.asp

So adorable. And such a good a momma for letting her "unkempt" NORMAL children venture in Wally World. Love the stories....

Kelly said...

Your kids on a "bad" day sound like my kids everyday!! LOL, especially the boots and sweats. Here in Cali it is Ugg boots, though. My girls sometimes wear them with shorts. Attractive--not!! I have really enjoyed reading your blog lately. What an adorable family!

With between 25 and 40 dogs in the back yard, and lots of kennel chores to do, MUD is unavoidable, but good for you for taking a stand.

As far as out in public goes, if I had that many little kids, we'd be lucky they weren't all in their pajamas with lollypops stuck in their hair. You're doing an awesome job, trust me.

Great bedding! You crack me up with your list of don't when taking the kids in public... I'm there with on many of them. :) But... my kids LOVE TO play in the mud:) something we often did as kids on the farm i grew on with a little creek, but all the mud does stress out the hubby sometimes:)

No rain here just the icky stomach bug passing between hubby and kids- ugh! Have a great week!
Blessings,
Gayly

I saw that exact bedding in WalMart today and thought it was adorable. I'm about to be a fellow Kansan... we're building out in the countryside right now!

Found your post! :) And Ha, I got them for $35! Its cute, huh? I liked the girls bedding too with the birds...
And FYI, I sometimes drag these kids of mine into Wally World looking pretty scrappy.
