Today's date has been marked on the calendar as "Pajama Day" for three weeks. Zeus was out of town so I had the entire day to retreat to my lair and sew, sew, sew. The serger and sewing machine were smoking hot all day.
Pajama Gang 2006
This pajama thing has been a holiday tradition for, oh, probably 10 years. Each year everyone who stays with us on Christmas Eve gets silly pj pants and a t-shirt.
Pajama Gang 2003
The pajamas are worn until they are threadbare. Last night I asked the Little Erises if they could tell me what their pajamas were for the last few years. Not only could they tell me theirs, but they also told Eris what hers were. That makes it worth all the work.
All that is left now is to press, wrap them in coordinating t-shirts and set them under the tree.
One more photo: This one was taken in 1959 (?). Mom made these matching nightgowns for us three girls. You probably can't see it but the pajamas that Little Ms. Eris is wearing in the 2002 photo are made from leftover scraps of these nightgowns. Now that is real stashbusting!
