Behold these cute, cheap t-shirts, and see my braggart Mom skilz comment below the third one.
For the last few Christmases, I've been ordering fun, $10.00 t-shirts from a site called Random Shirts.com. It's an inexpensive way to surprise my big, giant children because surprising them isn't as easy as it used to be when they were cherubic and ... condensed (gosh, how they used to fit on our furniture and in our van so nicely) and were delighted by gifts such as a whole stick of gum or a bottle of bubbles.
I wasn't sure if they would like the ones I chose this year or not, but I think you can see by their faces I did not strike out. Yay, me.
The first one ("I Live to Serve") is cute (to us) because our church does a wildly popular community service event each June called SERVE, complete with cool SERVE t-shirts to wear while you're rehabbing houses, etc. So I found this random shirt about serving, and I knew she'd get the little joke. She'll probably wear it one day while serving.
That joker in the middle is wearing his new sock hat with a bill and a t-shirt that says, "Angelina adopted me," which cracks me up for several different reasons (and that's what's important here, right?) At first he balked at it, but then he put it on and wore it all day.
Finally, the third shirt says, "Church Vans Move Me," which just fits this one's personality. She has spent many an hour in various church vans, including trips to Florida and Mexico. (Can you tell this one is my first-born?)
You should check out this site because it's cheap and cool and has some connection with Shane and Shane. There's a lot of good stuff there. And I actually got these shirts for $8.00 each. Did I mention cheap?
I am the MOM!
