Did I hear "HO, HO, HO". . .

. . .actually at my house it was the sound of "SEW, SEW, SEW".

The kids were talking about the family traditions and one of our traditions is to have new pajamas on Christmas Eve. With everything going on I haven't had time to make any so thus the sound of SEW, SEW, SEW, instead of HO, HO, HO.

I started sewing pajama pants after lunch on Christmas Eve and emerged from the sewing room at about 4:00 pm with 5 quickly sewn pajama pants, you can tell they were thrown together. Yep, I said 5. I couldn't bring myself to sew one more, poor Nate! 5 will have to suffice this year.

It's always the oldest that has to take a back seat!! Poor Ryan too! I always tell him that it's because he understands better than the younger ones! Come to think of it....Ryan is the only one that didn't get jammies from Santa! Nice!!!! That Santa needs a good whoopin!! I couldn't find any his size, GEEZ!!!!

You are amazing! I don't sew so my kids are out of luck - although I would love to make them PJs.

I can't believe you sewed five of anything is under four hours! Seriously, it took me almost that long to sew a pair of curtains and a dishtowel...for a miniature kitchen!!
You have got some lucky kiddos!

I do sew some, but a guaranteed difference between you and I is- you don't cuss while you do it. :) I sewed the girls some tulle skirts this year, I took some pics for the blog before church today. Yes, church, where I repent for the cussing that sewing causes me to do.
