Tie-dye!

First, let me tell you about the audiobooks.  I picked a few up for Poppy last week at the library.  They're the ones that come with a picture book.  I uploaded the cd's to an old ipod and gave it to Poppy along with an old-school set of headphones.  This girl is hooked.  She absolutely loves being able to follow along with the books that she can't quite read yet.  The first couple of days, we literally had to limit the time she could listen to them because she wanted to listen all day long!  Now it's been a week and the novelty is slowly wearing off, but she still loves them.  I went online and requested a few more books - they definitely come in handy when we are in the car, or when I'm too busy to sit down and read with her myself.  

 And check out the super awesome tie-dye shirt Poppy is wearing.  We made it at our super awesome tie-dye party we had a few weeks ago...
We had the family over and everyone made their own shirts.  The kids had a blast doing it, and the shirts turned out unbelievably cute.  I've been seeing them on all of the cousins lately and I just love them!

 We even had tie-dye cupcakes!
The hardest part was that we had to wait 24 hours until we could unwrap the shirts and see what they look like.  But we'll all wear them to the next big family party and I'll snap a pic of the family cuteness.

LOVE the tie-dye party idea! LOVE.

And I adore that Poppy listens to audio books. I used to love those as a kid, and can't wait until Spencer discovers them. :-)

drooling over the cupcakes here...

we went to a friend's bday a couple years ago who had a tie-dye party, and it was really fun!

Um, do I need to go some audio books for the ride or what?! No time though but maybe I can sneak off to the library tomorrow to give this a whirl. See you guys soon.

I can't wait for Alex to use Audiobooks! I listen to them all the time. Have you tried Tumblebooks? They are online - I can hook you up if you like.
And tie dyed cupcakes? Seriously sounds yummy!
