Pumpkin Shirts!

On Monday, the kids and I decided to get a bit crafty and have some fun. I had found this tye-die project in a magazine that I get called Family Fun, so we gave it a try. (I would post a link, but there isn't one on their website.) It was really quite easy and we had a lot of fun making it happen. You can follow our process below. (And yes, that's Owen smiling--it's all he does for a smile anymore.)

Cute!! I saw that in the Oct. issue and wanted to try that too. I saw the blog earlier that you had Eli--congratulations!! I have about a month or so to go before our little boy arrives. It looks like you have jumped back into life (of course there never seems to be much rest for a mom)!

Looks like fun! I saw those in the magazine but I usually read those and think what a cute idea, and then never do it. So, way to go! I love the soccer pictures of Ryanna. It must be in the blood!

Those are the cutest shirts!!!! Ryanna looks so pleased with her shirt!!!! What will the kids be for Halloween this year? I know that Bo is Batman and Anika is Little Red Riding Hood. Do you have to do anything for Ryanna's class? I just love this time of year!!!! Miss you!

What happens to kids smiles?? Brayden does a similar smile to Owen's. It's funny for some pictures, but definitely not for all of them!!
