the tradition continues

Ever since Chad and I have been together (8 years, baby!) he has endured my Christmas pajama...hmmm...we will call it an obsession. I bought us matching flannel pajama bottoms from Old Navy. He wore them with pride (I think) since we were newlyweds and he was so hot for me...HA!


2000

This is not an actual pic of him on Christmas. It was the only pic I could find of our first matching bottoms.


That tradition continues. Chad and I always wear matching pjs and the kids wear matching/coordinating jammies. I seriously wish I had better pics but this was all I could come up with. Trust me, we always match on Christmas.

2001

Unfortunatey, we do not have any nice posed pics of us as a family in our jammies.

2002

Sorry, just my knee.

2003

Another knee shot...I have to take better pics from now on.

2004

Eli got these jammies in addition to his "Madeline matchies" and had to put them on immediately.

2005

No pic. Bummer...they were red with little white reindeer...did not wash well.

2006

2 years ago I found all matching jammies...they were plaid bottoms for Chad and I and then tops and bottoms for the kids. We were adorable!

2007

Last year we all matched again in fleece tops and bottoms...all the same pattern but different colors. Chad was hilarious in his giant bright green fleece pajamas. He must really love me to put up with this. Any other man would have vetoed last years pick!! Plus I had a great pic of the four of us....finally!

I am happy to report that this years jammies have arrived in the mail and they ROCK!!

that's really funny. i can't imagine the pile of strictly Christmas flannel bottoms you've stockpiled by now. What do you do with all of them?? Maybe some year you should cut them all up and make patchwork pants.

Ooh! Or a quilt! How cool would that be? Speaking of cool... Manda, I'm sure you've seen "A Christmas Story," how cool are these?

I would say out of all of the Christmas jammies last year was my favorite ... ya I looked rediculous but ya know what? I was comfy and thats all that matters after the mass chaos of paper and ribbon destruction. :)
