Three years ago we had a quiet Christmas and just my niece and her family were coming over later in the day. She called me before they came over, and we both were sharing how tired we were and how we just wanted to climb into our jammie's. She quickly said why don't we come over in our pajama's and you guys go put yours on.
We did, and a tradition was born.
The following year we decided that everyone would wear pajama's to Christmas dinner. Most of the family thought we were crazy and did not participate in our kooky idea, our two families however, thought it was a fantastic idea.
Yesterday we had a large crowd (around 20 people) for Christmas dinner. We told everyone to wear their pajama's again.
This time everyone did.
We snuggled with our loved ones.
We played our new computer games on the computer.
The teenagers played games on their new x-box while lying around in jammies wrapped in blankets.
We ate yummy food (aunt Cheryl didn't get the message that she was suppose to wear pj's, we're sorry Aunt Cheryl).
The guys carved turkey in their pj's.
We did play-doh in our pj's.
Hubby even went for a run before everyone got here with his cute Santa hat on his head.
We had a great day. Very relaxed.
Everyone is already talking about what pajama's we should wear next year.
I think this is a tradition that will definitely stick.
