Last Minute Christmas Pajamas

It's become my little family's tradition to have Christmas dinner on Christmas Eve, and then relax with leftovers and treats on Christmas Day. Last night, with my tummy full of turkey and trimmings and the dishes still undone, I decided we all needed matching pajamas -- before bedtime!

So with hubby and the boys snuggled up to watch a decidedly un-Christmas-y Star Trek movie, I headed down to my sewing machine to whip up some cozy flannel PJs. I didn't take any formal photos, but you can sort of see them in our photos from this morning.

The boys each got flannel pants and an appliqued t-shirt, while hubby and I made do with flannel pants and unadorned tees. The applique was a simple tree shape. The print is purple plaid, so it's Christmas-y without being in-your-face Christmas-y, and I think the boys will be happy to wear these for months. One last bit -- it's hard to see in the photo above, but I added a little lace edging to the leg bottoms of my pants, just to make them a little more girlish.

I hope you all had a blessed Christmas.
