name game shirt

One of the songs the kids did during Studio 54 was "The Name Game" complete with hand motions, etc. Each of the kids had to wear a shirt with their name on the front. Can you see Madison wearing a yellow shirt with black letters?

Madison told us she needed a shirt with her name on it, so we bought the iron-on letters & she did her own shirt.

The NIGHT before the show Dillon declares he needs a shirt too. Madison offers to iron Dillon's shirt.
Here's how the evening progressed:
Madison: "There isn't an 'N' for Dillon's name!"
Scott: "Cut another iron-on letter into an 'N'"
Madison: "Good idea"
*** She accidentally made a backwards 'N' from a capital 'W' ***
Scott: "I can fix it with a permanent marker, I'll just fill in this part..."
*** Now it looks like a large blob instead of any letter - see photo below ***
Madison: "Maybe I can cut away some of the iron-on material & make it look like an 'N'
*** She starts cutting left-handed with a right-handed pair of scissors ***
*** Shelly grabs the scissors & says ***
Shelly: "Both of you have messed this up, let me fix it!"
*** Shelly gracefully cuts right through the fabric so a nice hole emerges.
*** Shelly & Madison are laughing so hard that Madison runs to the bathroom & Shelly starts crying from laughing.
Dillon: "I'm NOT wearing that"
Madison stenciled his name on another shirt with permanent marker. Looked great! :)
