Today's slip read...

 "Pretty colors I do spy;
Let's get ready to tie dye!"

Today we rolled up our sleeves, picked out some fun summer colors, and got messy decorating our T-shirts.

Just the other day, I came across these really neat t-shirt paints at our local craft store.
I thought we should give them a try.

 They worked really well and the big boys had fun spraying their T's. 
The babies, on the other hand, were a little frustrated though because they couldn't work the spray bottles as easily as the older kids.
 This mommy had to step in and help just a little;)

 This was definitely a messy craft, but it wouldn't have been any fun otherwise-right!

And as a side note...
Have you tried this ice cream yet? 
I am the BIGGEST fan of ANYTHING peanut butter!
And if your a peanut-butter-a-holic like me, you MUST give it a try.

Looooooove peanut butter over here...I'm definitely going to have to look for that ice cream, YUM! (And then I'll have to hide it from the kids so that I can actually eat some!)
Okay, those tie-dye t-shirts turned out SO cute!! What kind of paint did you use? Is it the multi-step process where you have to soak the t-shirts in a solution & then apply the color or is it one step?
The kiddoes look adorable in their tie-dye monogram tees!! Precious!

I'm lovin' Riley's summer tan...he's SO dark! Love the tie dye idea. You are the coolest mom ever. :)

I love the shirts, and I am glad to know that I am not the only mom who lets the kids ride scooters in the house! :)

Mel...it was just a one step process. I got the paints at AC Moore! They were little spray bottles that you apply directly to the shirt.

I haven't tried that ice cream yet, but it looks good!
