Welcome friend! I'm so glad you have joined me here at Dreaming of Homemaking. I like to think of this blog as my journal, full of ideas that have helped me turn my house into a warm, welcoming home. My hope is that you too find this little piece of the internet a place to gather ideas and find inspiration.
Something we look forward to all year is when the seasons change, and it’s Christmas time. We love to turn the music on, grab our favorite pajamas from The Company Store and get ready to decorate cookies and gingerbread houses! We have a lot of traditions and Family Pajama Night and decorating is a favorite!
I wanted to share something that is so special. The Company Store is donating $1 for every pair of pajamas sold to the Ronald McDonald House. I can’t imagine what the families are going through that stay there, ecspecially this time of year so each pajama sold will truly add up and help so many! I love that this is something they support, and on top of the amazing pajamas who wouldn’t want to help a great cause to!
The kids are all ready to decorate, but first is hot cocoa!
They were a little excited but Ollie has been counting down the days to wear his pajamas!
(He might live in them till Christmas Day)
I love watching them decorate, each making sure they get it just right.
Its crazy to watch as the years go by, how much they grow up. I am not sure if its the pajamas that make them look older or that time is going that quickly.
James even joined in on the pajama fun, I know it means so much to the kids. Zoe looks forward to this day every year.
They are making sure every detail is perfect.
Ollie loves to pose, while Koen is working so hard he doesn’t even notice.
I don’t know if its all the colors of Christmas, the tiny details, or the season but it just makes me so happy.
Time to do all the details!
But, first a hot cocoa break!
Its time to finish up the gingerbread houses.
Now they are complete, and its time to make cookies!
We did some easy sugar cookies, then some from our favorite recipe you can find from Jenny Cookies.
Zoe loves to be in the kitchen, and it makes me so happy seeing her do her favorite thing and how cute is she in her pajamas?
Lots of cookies were made, while we can’t say that no gingerbread was unharmed they are sure tasty!
Rosie wanted to get in on the fun, she is all dressed up in her pajamas and ready for a treat!
Thank you so much for following along on one of our favorite times of the year, its time for us to enjoy our cookies and watch some Christmas movies! Hopefully you will join and have a Family Pajama Night too! A special thanks to The Company Store for sponsoring this post, I hope you will check out their great selection of pajamas and everything else they carry.
