It was a Tye~Dye kinda day!

Jessica had her birthday on Saturday. Her birthday isn't until Thursday. Our friend Steven, was kind enough to help us with the party (since he had done the tye-dye thing before). Jessica invited 25? of her closest friends, however only 12 showed up (yes, I know I am insane). Steven did an fantastic job with them. He explained to them all how to make the different designs and they all went to town. (prepare for a picture overload)

Once everyone was done with their shirts, they were given instructions to wrap their shirt in newspaper, put it in a plastic bag, attach their name tag, which had instructions for parents with what to do later (keep wrapped for 24 hours, rinse out and wash in cold water), and head over so Jessica could open her birthday presents. She got a lot of great gifts. From gift cards, to mani/pedi set, to money. Can anyone guess what she spent her money on? (no fair guessing if I already told you) That will be a post for later this week!

After presents, we had cake. Normally, my sister would make the cake for their birthday, but she was out of town the week before the party, so was not able to make it. Jessica opted for an icecream cake.

Sunday afternoon, Jessica rinsed out her shirt (and I rinsed out the other 15 or so shirts that I had done for friends)



...and yes Christine, the washing machine is involved! lol

Look at all the great shirts
(these are all the ones I did for friends)

Jess and her friends all made plans to wear there shirt to school on Monday, unfortunately, Jess was sick and didn't go to school, but she did wear it today!
