oh like a rainbow.

tie dye paper, originally uploaded by sassyladybug.

my sister watched my two little birds so that i could run an errand. since her kids were sort of sick she had them with her, and when i got home i decided we were going to craft.

the directions for this is very simple. most of you will have the items on hand at home.

we made tie-dyed paper. you need shaving cream, food coloring, white paper, and a 9x13 baking dish.

now, if we were doing this without the kids, sara and i would have all sorts of amazing designs. but with the kids, we got some pretty funky looking mix of all the colors. you cover the bottom of your 9x13 with shaving cream, then sprinkle on your food coloring. use a comb or any other device you have on hand to create swirls of color amidst the shaving cream. mix too much and you'll get, well, what we got at the end... brown looking paper. place your white paper on top, lightly press down, and then lift it up. rinse it off in the sink, until all the shaving cream is gone. let it air dry and you have some pretty paper to write a letter to your favorite aunt. which is what i requested of my niece and nephew, and i have yet to see it, by the way. hint, hint.

please sir don't you walk away.

march is a rough month. it goes from a few happy days to a sad day.

chris and i both celebrated birthdays and then a few days later we remember the day that his dad died.

it is so hard to support my husband because i can't understand how he feels.

he misses his dad so much.

he tells me that he just wants to be there for our boys like his dad was for him.

it is sad but he knows that his dad is in a better place.

and for me, having a birthday near my husbands means that even if he doesn't get me a cake, i can make one for him and then i get to eat cake for my birthday. and if we go out to eat for my birthday, and then go out for his birthday, it is like second birthday. and i'm good with that.
