After Thanksgiving it's fair game to bring out the Christmas pajamas. We love Hanna Andersson pajamas for kids and love them even more since we have a Hanna Andersson outlet only about 45 minutes away that we get over to a few times a year. My mom and I went last Saturday for the morning to try and find some last minute baby boy sleepers before baby brother arrives and scored 4 different prints in a couple different sizes for $5 (!) each.
Our tree was fully decorated the night the girls first wore their Christmas pajamas and all my Christmas shopping was done and wrapped under the tree. Everything is done and ready this year by the 1st of December. Usually I don't even start doing Christmas shopping until December. Such a great feeling since baby brother could suprise us any day now. This year I wrapped all our gifts in shipping paper, some red and white twine and to/from stickers. Then I let the girls decorate the packages with some red and green crayons. Cute and simple and 100% recycleable. We have been doing a lot of Christmas crafts aroud here but since most of them are for gifts, I won't be able to show you until after the gifts have been opened. There are a couple projects we did for around our house that I'll post about next and I have been knitting like crazy and have some baby boy sweaters to show.
I would like to post more often but our computer is hooked up to our tv, which comes in very handy a lot of the time, but makes for a very uncomfortable way to do actual work (like blogging is work or something!).
So today 12/01, I'm thankful for Christmas pajamas, Christmas lights, hot chocolate and snuggles while reading Christmas stories or watching Christmas movies. I love how cozy December is. The only thing I'm not looking forward to about baby brother arriving this month is having to spend some of those December days in the hospital.
