Annie revampedCategory: Kaylyn
Author: 5 Chicks and a Farmer
It seems as though Kaylyn and I both have a thing for musicals. We love them around here.
I remember when I was a little girl and the first time I watched The Sound of Music. My mom knew that I loved musicals so she rented it for us to watch together. I was reluctant at first because I thought the movie was a bit dated and old just by glancing at the VHS cover. After that initial time of watching The Sound of Music, I've been a big fan of it ever since. That is still by far my favorite musical followed by Hairspray (old and new) as a close second.
I bought Annie to add to our musical collection. Along with watching the movies, Kaylyn likes to dress up like the characters and act out what they are doing in the movie. How precious!
Jason and I like to watch Kaylyn watch movies. She is one animated girl.
Today Kaylyn came up with this costume as her rendition of Annie. I think she did amazing putting this costume together. She wanted an apron on over a dress, a sweater over the dress, and some boots with tall socks sticking out of the top. Her hair also needed to be in a bun because Annie has that bun/ponytail thingy sticking out of the back of her head. What is that anyways?
Here is Kaylyn as Annie.......
Pretty genius isn't it?
Oh, and here is a pretty funny story that is KK and farm related.
Jason and I were talking about the idea of someday letting our girls be in charge of the pigs and chickens as their main chore when they get a little older.
Of course, if you had the chickens to tend to that would mean collecting the eggs, feeding them twice a day, and making sure they got put up at night in the proper coops.
If you were in charge of the pigs, you would have to brave the chaotic squeals during feeding time, feed them at night, and probably get your toes stepped on by a 500+ pound pig (literally).
We asked Kaylyn while we were talking,"Do you like the chickens or the pigs better?"
She sat there and thought for a moment. You could see the wheels turning in her head. Then it was like a light bulb flashed on.
"I like the goats," she said answering to neither one of her choices.
Jason and I immediately started laughing hysterically.
The goats are probably the easiest animals on the farm. You don't have to do anything with them. They feed themselves, they go in at night, they are calm and quiet (which was probably the biggest deciding factor for her), and are pretty much low maintenance self-helping animals.
She strategically thought about that one. I must admit. She is a little freaked out by the pigs and chickens. Meal time for them is a farm fiasco.
