The Up Side of Pack Rattishness

Do you know what you get when you have a pack rat for a Grammy? Does “pack rat” seem mean? A keeper. A  saver.  Better?

You get to wear the cowgirl outfit your own mama wore some 40 plus years ago!

Couldn’t you just about die from the cuteness?! That’s what we were hoping the bidders at the stock show auction would think when we sent these girls out into the ring with the award winning bunny rabbit, but we never got to find out what they thought. Do you know why?

See that number on her back? That is what number she was in the line of items up for auction. Thaaaaat’s right. There were 170 kids in front of her.

(Checking the program.) “Oh, look! Only 100 more to go!”

So, some of us had to high tail it out of there so a certain newly turned five year old could have her own birthday party, while Daddy stayed behind with the girl and her bunny, because Mama never imagined it would take HOURS ON END to auction off a rabbit and she was silly enough to plan the party on the same day.

All’s well that ends well, though. The rabbit went for $400 and we had one happy girl on our hands!

    Adorble ‘lil cowgirls!

    With all due respect, why would a person spend that much for a rabbit, cute as that one is? I don’t know anything about shows like that. Could you fill this city girl in? :o)

      @Heather Wawa, Businesses bid on the items to support the kids’ efforts and to get advertising. (They get their names in the paper.) The first place rabbit went for $1,200 and a friend’s pie went for $3,500 – a record!

  2. Wow, I am in the WRONG business!

    Cute dresses, by the way. : )

  3. I was going to ask the same thing. I need to start making pies! I have 4 kids. If they each showed a rabbit…..hmmm. :o) Great job though.
    And the outfits are darling. Will they continue to be saved I wonder?

  4. Well, I was going to come by and comment on the absolute cuteness of the whole cowgirl outfit, but then I got sidetracked by something about a $400 rabbit. Are you kidding me?? Now she can get her own Very Expensive Doll to go with the one her sister was saving for. ;-)

  5. Awww…it’s sweet that you have those outfits. Very cute!

  6. Absolutely adorable – my mom has saved a few of my outfits too and all I can say is, “Really! My waist really was that small at one point!?!”

  7. The cowgirl outfit is adorable! My son wore a cowboy outfit his father wore as a child. He was so cute!
