"We are the three amigos, and amigos we'll always be"




Dusty Bottoms, Ned Nederlander and Lucky Day






I was sick a couple months ago for two weeks. I caught some kind of crazy cold, felt sick and tired from being pregnant and to top it off I got in a car accident all in the same weekend. So, from being down for so long I watched a handful of movies, including one of my all time favorites since I was super young "The Three Amigos" Halfway through the movie it hit me, "there are three in our family this year. This is what we should be for Halloween." I set out to every store in town I could think of that might have something like this... Wal-mart, target, K-mart, Evangelines in Old Town Sac. Finally, I had to settle with going to the DI and making these bad boy costumes all on my own. It was a lot of work, but I think it was well worth it. Every time I look at these I just laugh because it sends a flood of one liners from the movie to my mind. Hilarious show. If you haven't seen it, please tell me and I will gladly let you borrow it. If you are out of town, then you need to go buy it. LOL it is soooo funny! I think it ended up costing me about 80 bucks for all three costumes... not bad huh? We even won our ward costume contest for best family costume. The 5 dollar gift card to Sonic was worth all those back breaking hours I put in to these bad boys. Enjoy!
