Ok, did anybody read my "Hey Yall, it's 2011!" post? Well one of my "to dos" was to be more crafty, and so I attempted to paint Lily Kate a shirt. Yes, it sounds crazy but I went to Wal Mart and got a plain white shirt ($3.50) and two bottles of puffy paint ($1.17 each). So for $5.84 I made/painted her a shirt! Tuesday night I cooked supper and Ninnie, Poppy, Mimi, Johnny Gramps, Uncle Phillip, Gage, Ella and Meg came to eat with us and Lily Kate wore her new shirt. These pics were not taken that night (that story later). What do you think???
Ok now for the other part of the story. This is actually the 2nd shirt I made. The first one I made didn't dry in time for Tuesday nights reveal... but Taylor wanted her to wear it anyway. So let me just tell you that when you put a wet-paint shirt on a 10 month old -- paint gets everywhere. It was ALL over her, in her hair, on her ears, on her arms and legs, just everywhere! Don't panic, it is non-toxic! It got all over me and my clothes, and our bedspread... what a mess! what a memory! Here is what the first shirt looked like afterwards:
So, another baby will be here early October! We are so excited, so shocked, so nervous, and most of all so blessed. Everything we have, EVERYTHING we have comes from the Lord. Thank you Lord for the blessing of Lily Kate, and for the blessing of this baby.
