Farmily fun with Flat Stanley

Got a fun assignment from Arizona last week… ๐ŸŒต


I decided to turn it into a blog post for a couple reasons. First, because I am THE WORST at being prompt at mailing packages out. [Like birthdays, for example. I still have my mom’s August 25th b-day gift sitting on a table waiting to go to the post office. I mean, the gift is DONE and ready…all I need to do is mail it! ๐Ÿ˜”] And second, I am THE WORST at getting pictures printed… We don’t have a color printer, so the procedure to get a picture printed is just more than I can handle, lol… Especially when the printer at our local Rite Aid doesn’t seem to ever be able to read our travel drives! ๐Ÿ˜ก

Soooo, to my brother, Mark: Hope this post can count as completing Abbi’s assignment – and if you want to print any of these pictures out, you’ll get them quicker than any I’d send from here! ๐Ÿ˜ฌI’ll place Flat Stanley and his new wardrobe in mom’s package and try to get it shipped tomorrow… ๐Ÿ‘

Now: on to our adventure! ๐Ÿ˜Š

First thing we had to do was prepare Flat Stanley with proper “farm” attire… Custom-made a pair of muck boots for him and introduced him to the dairy girls during the morning’s milking. ๐ŸฎHere he is with the boys and ScotchTape:


Next he helped me hand milkers to the boys…๐Ÿ‘


Then he “hung” with me in the milkhouse… ๐Ÿ™ˆ


And he helped me bottle the milk. He MAY have taste-tested the milk when I wasn’t looking…not sure how else he may have gotten a milk mustache… ๐Ÿ˜ง


He liked our cats, too. Though they weren’t interested in sharing their milk with him…๐Ÿ˜ผ


He wanted to get an up-close look at the calves, so we brought him to see them… ๐Ÿ˜Ž


He chose the wrong wire to hold onto and was a little “shocked”… [It was a “hair-raising” experience! ๐Ÿ˜‰]


Then he almost turned into a snack, but Uncle Mike saved him… ๐Ÿ˜ฑ


Didn’t take long and everybody just went back to business… โ˜บ๏ธ


Then he helped me frost Uncle Mike’s birthday brownies… ๐Ÿซ


And posed for a selfie with Michael… ๐Ÿ˜


He fit perfectly in Uncle Mike’s phone pocket on the 4-wheeler, so he was ready for a ride with the boys…๐ŸŒž


They took him to see the dairy girls grazing in their field…๐Ÿ„


Fixed him up with a Terriers shirt to root for Michael’s baseball team, and then he partied with us as we shared a dessert celebration for Uncle Mike after the rainy game. Even Aunt Jenny got in on the fun! ๐ŸŽ‰


That’s it! Some farm, some family, and some fun. Thanks for sending Flat Stanley to us, Abbi! ๐Ÿ’Œ

Aunt Dawn, Uncle Mike, Michael, & Paul

    That was hillarious! Thanks for giving such creative life to Flat Stanley! I love the electrocuted hair dew, too funny. Reminded me of my childhood, minus the milking lol.
    Love you guys!
    Thanks for such an over the top performance!

    Ps. I finally got the surprises done, so expect some deliveries (over the next 2 weeks)

      Love you, too, Mark! Glad you laughed, because we sure did… ๐Ÿ˜œ Can’t wait to hear what Abbi thinks. ๐Ÿ˜‰

      P.S. No fair sending us a new package before I finally get Mom/Abbi’s to you, lol! ๐Ÿ˜ฌ
