My dad read T’was the Night Before Christmas via Skype this year. Very exciting. Iain bought Seraphina her own little sled and Elijah carved her a set of wooden spoons. She’s not sure what all this fuss is about, but she sure enjoyed herself. The big boys have been putting on a little show the last couple of years, helping the littler ones to get all of the dolls in the house dressed in festive clothing and such. It’s really very sweet. This year they turned the attic into Christmas town and the four of them slept up there on Christmas Eve. They were so pleased with this arrangement that they went up quite early to do holiday Mad Libs, play games and read books. It worked out beautifully for us. We had a leisurely time setting everything up and then my love and I got watch a movie while eating Christmas cookies! On Christmas Eve! Amazing.
This year’s pajama patterns:
all of the pants were self drafted
Iain’s shirt is Kwik Sew 2530, view A minus the collar
Elijah and Galen’s shirts are Kwik Sew 3366 (now out of print I believe?)
the girl’s nightgowns are the Sally Dress pattern
I modified this pattern for Seraphina’s bonnet
