Christmas can come now.

I have been seriously stressed out with a few Christmas projects this year, and today I finished the last one on my to do list, so Christmas can come, and I can fully enjoy the festivities. A couple of them you will have to wait to see until after they are opened in the next couple of days.

I made pj pants for all of my kids, and think I might try to find some plain t-shirts to applique initials, or monkeys on. The boys thought I was so weird sewing their clothes inside out, and Jordan made fun of me when I told him that I used their pants to make myself a pattern, but I love how they turned out.
(Ryley totally looks like a boy here, maybe a headband is required as well :)

I also made stockings since I now have 2 kids that didn't have one, but I was super intimidated by this project, because the 3 members of my family that did have stocking had about the ugliest stocking known to man made by yours truly, and since I did such a bad job last time I was scared I would fail again. I finally got them done today, and while they are not prefect, I am pleased with the result, adn they look way better than my attempt a few years back.
I am super excited to spend the next few days with family, and to give the gifts that we have worked so hard on. I love Christmas and have worked so hard with my boys to help them to remember why we celebrate Christmas, it seems like a daily lesson, but one I am happy to repeat. Merry Christmas!
