Luke's family has a Christmas Pajamas tradition. From the year I was engaged to Luke I received Christmas jammies from his parents. Can you imagine making 20+ jammies every year?! Three years ago Mom decided that those who are married needed to take care of their own Christmas jammies - smart lady. :o)
For Christmas 2011 the theme was Reindeer. Can I just say that I'm uber proud of myself? The pants are made out of fleece, and I will never go back to flannel. LOVE fleece! The shirts I did a combination of things: the Reindeer face was made out of felt; the names were done with fabric paint and the freezer paper stencil method. Method can be found at: http://www.makeit-loveit.com/. I was cursing myself while cutting these tiny curly letters out with an exacto knife, but they turned out SO WELL! We had Dasher, Dancer, Prancer, Vixen and Rudolph - and no, I'm not planning on having enough kids to have the other 4 reindeer.
Arya really liked the bracelet from Ama. :)
Santa knew that Michael really likes Gerber's Graduate Puffs. This kid downed a whole container within 4 hours of receiving it.
And look what Santa brought me!!! I saw these on Black Friday and LOVED them. However, Shopko only had 1 box left at the store (Dishes for only 4 ppl) and they were all sold out online. I then told myself that I didn't need them even though many of our inexpensive dinnerware are chipped and on their way out. I must've been a good girl this year! :o) These are OVEN SAFE!!!!!!! Merry Christmas to me!
