10 Days of Christmas PJs! Day 10: 2010 Part 1



Merry Christmas Eve, everyone! Here we are on our 10th Day of Christmas PJs…but I can’t show you our Christmas jammies photos from this year yet because…well, we haven’t taken them yet! I didn’t think that through when I came up with this whole thing. Oh well.

So…for this post I’ve decided to include one (or two) photos from each year that I’ve posted so far to tide you over until I can post photos of this year’s jammies.

Enjoy.

10 Days of Christmas PJs! Day 9: 2009



2009 brought about more “new” for us. It was our first Christmas with the next generation, my daughter Adaline was almost 5 months old, and my sister was pregnant with her son. We took a group photo of all of us together in our jammies for the first time.

We ladies had knit pajamas with green tops and red, white, and green striped bottoms. There were candy canes on the tops which read “Holiday Sugar”. Adaline had a cute “1st Christmas” sleeper that was white with red stripes and had a few red and green presents on it. The little red hat that you’ll see her wearing was mine as a baby.

I had a harder time with the guys pajamas last year. I couldn’t find any pajama bottoms at all so I asked the guys to bring a pair from previous years (you’ll notice below that they each wore a different pair, one from each year, unplanned). I couldn’t find a top in my husband’s size either, so I had to get him a smaller size. He cut the sleeves off so that he would be more comfortable and then he and my cousin, Ben, tied the cut-off sleeves around their heads. Before the shirt was destroyed it was a green t-shirt with a gingerbread man with a broken leg that said “Oh snap!”. Tee-hee ;).

The girls.

Cousins.

Da Boyz


The whole crew

10 Days of Christmas PJs! Day 8: 2008


2008 jammies! In these photos I’m 10 weeks pregnant with my daughter and my sister just got married almost 3 months prior. The ladies received white pjs with red and green reindeer on them while the men got red “Grinch” t-shirts and red and black plaid bottoms.
And then the photo fun ensued.

Cousins


I have about 3.5 million (o.k., maybe not that many) pairs of Christmas socks and slipper socks. Do not ask me why I’m wearing plain white tube socks in the photo above. It makes me sad. I’m ashamed to show this to the world. A perfect opportunity for festiveness was entirely overlooked and for that I should be punished 😦

Just the girls

I shall show you my calf. Try to control yourself.

Go on, guys!
(my uncle ended up in some of these photos accidentally…
U.A. meet the bloggy people. Bloggy people, meet U.A.)


Hey, Santa you’re so fine, you’re so fine you blow my mind, hey Santa! Hey Santa!

The newlyweds with new fluffy furbaby, Sammy.

We like to hold dogs in photos so that it appears they don’t have any heads. That’s just how we roll.

And our really bad Cool Family pic of 2008
(this was the best one there was, people)…

…at least it was better than this one! (????)

10 Days of Christmas PJs! Day 7: 2007



2007 was a veritable Pajama-Fest. I’m not really sure what that means, but I found matching pink pajamas with red and green ornaments on them for me, my sister, and my cousin, and also for my mom and aunt. The fellas got red and black plaid flannel bottoms with mock santa suit t-shirts that say “Does this suit make me look fat?”, and I also got matching bottoms and a red shirt for my uncle. The “grown-ups” didn’t want their photos taken and especially wouldn’t want them posted on here, so too bad for you.

Yes, we are weird.

And I’m perhaps the weirdest of them all.

Cool Cousins.

Cooler Cousins.

Cool Daddy and the Cool Fellas.

Da Boyz still keeping it cool.

Gee whiz, fellas, Christmas pajamas are swell.

Sissy and Matt

And I like to end it with some more weird. Just to bookend it.

10 Days of Christmas PJs! Day 6: 2006



2006 was a big “pajama” year for us. For the first time I was able to find Christmasy pajama bottoms for the guys in my husband’s size (if you can’t tell, he’s a giant aka 6’3). My sister picked up the “Elves Gone Wild” shirts but forgot one for my cousin 😦 so we supplemented with a plain red shirt for him. The ladies pjs had a red top with Santa on it that said North Pole Celebrity and pink pants with Santas.
