Merry Christmas to all....


I am so not good at blogging during the holidays. I did finish all 5 pairs of pajamas. Chad helped me finish the bottoms today. He was on the serger and I was on the sewing machine. We got them done in a couple of hours. I also finished Samuel and Ava's aprons, but the rest of the gifts are no shows. Ava will get her Wee Wonderful doll for her birthday January 2nd. Poor thing is still bald and faceless LOL I don't know why I do this to myself every year. I know I will never get it all done. It is 10 pm and we still have all of our gift wrapping to do. Chad just finished baking a New York Cheesecake and stuffing and marinating a rump roast for lunch tomorrow. YUM! Have I said how thankful I am for a husband that likes to cook?! Anyway, here are some pics of the kids in the pjs. The boys got Target pajama bottoms, they just don't appreciate hand made. Oh, and I forgot to get them t shirts, which is why they are topless in the pictures. They are trying to make me feel bad for forgetting, I don't : p

I am just posting the whole series, they are goofballs. After these pictures, we went riding around looking at Christmas lights. This is a yearly tradition. It was great for about an hour and then they all started fighting and needing to pee, etc. I keep reminding myself, I WILL remember these times fondly one day......lol





Merry Christmas everyone, I hope y'all have a wonderful and blessed day!

My Pearly Girl and I were just looking at your pics and said that those pics look "familiar" - as in her brothers would be doing the same things! We just made pjs, too!

Merry Christmas, Tonya!

I was up until 3:00 this morning finish up puppets for the puppet theater my Hubby made for the kids. I kick myself every year for waiting until the last minute. I swear it was yesterday that I still had 3 weeks until Christmas. :)

Your kids are hilarious! Those memories will be treasured.

Very Merry Christmas to your family!

What a great looking family. A (my oldest boy) has been begging me for PJ's.. maybe I should make him some before he doesn't like what I make.

I hope you guys had a great Christmas!!

A friend of mine made 22 pairs of pajama pants for Christmas gifts (seriously!) and she sewed them all 2 days before the holiday. Yikes! I am glad you got yours done!

We drive around and look at lights too. Really, I think it is kind of goofy, but I love it just the same!
