Pajama Pants

It's all about balance.

As the mother of six children (three boys & three girls; how cool is that!), Christmas can be a tremendous balancing act! Sometimes I balance across all six children, and sometimes I just have to make sure the boys balance (or just the girls).

Enter a pair of pajama pants.

Really, I promise it will all make sense.

You see, I knitted a dragon scarf for one boy. And a handmade gift for one boy means the other two need something handmade...and Christmas was drawing ever closer! I finished a pair of fingerless gloves (see my boys' gifts here). Then I was out of time!!

In a desperate search for something to make up the difference, I came across some delightful "Toy Story" flannel, and a pair of pajama pants was born!

Boy #3 looks happy, don't you think??

And look....he balances!!

Happy New Year!
Thanks for stopping by my blog today.
I know what you mean about balancing out the gifts for the kids. I grew up in a family of six kids...three boys and three girls too. Every Christmas my mom always tried to make us all something....wish I still had some of those things. I only have one son so I don't have that problem!
Wishing you and your family a wonderful 2011.

Funny and talented, you are! It is true for me too, the balancing act! Buy one gift, buy another. Make something for one, make something for another!
