Naughty or Nice Christmas Pajamas

I get all the kids Christmas pajamas for our Sinterklaas party every year, that way they can wear them all month long!  Sometimes I buy them, but this year I decided to make them. When we had our Girl’s weekend this fall and we were making all of our iron-on shirts, one of my friends gave me the idea to make these for Christmas!  And I think that they turned out darling!  The kids all loved them too, although they questioned some of the “nice” ones…like our littlest  baby girl…her brothers all said that she was “naughty”, but how can a darling baby girl be naughty???naughty and nice pj's Continue reading

Sinterklaas Party 2014

We had our annual Sinterklaas party last night and boy am I tired this morning!  It was a  lot of fun…but a lot of work!  We celebrate Sinterklaas day because my oldest son served a mission for the church in the Netherlands.  I have always loved the idea of welcoming in the Christmas Season with Santa!  We then celebrate the spiritual side of Christmas on Christmas Eve.Santa Claus Continue reading

If you need some reading to get you in the holiday mode, here are a couple of Christmas traditions that we have in our home, perhaps you will want to  make one of them a tradition in your home!

This first one is the one that I cherish the most.  You will want to read through this post, but be prepared to have a tissue at hand!  If you have children, this is a great tradition.  My husband and I do this every year with our family because all of our children are grown and so this is what we have the kids and grandkids do for our gifts!  It is wonderful!

The second tradition that we do is the Nativity.  The kids love to act this out and I have a very simple way to make all of the costumes!  You could even do these as a no-sew project if you want to.  They are very basic and simple, but the thing that I love about them is the fact that one size fits all…literally!  You just tie them up a little higher or tuck them in for the little ones!  Perfect, you make them once and then you have them forever!

Aren’t these kids the cutest ever? :)
