Is there anything more joyfully sweet than a little peanut in their PJs? If there is, I haven’t seen it.
I happen to think Annabelle always looks pretty adorable, but there is just something about seeing her running around in her cozy pajamas, that makes me want to scoop her up and kiss her all over her face.
Last year Annabelle had two pairs of Christmas PJs. One with Santa on them and one with little reindeer feet.
The memory of her in them, giggling and unwrapping all her Christmas loot, made them just too cute to pack away. So, I thought it would be sweet (and adorably sentimental) to make them into a Christmas decoration.
If you’ve been following my blog, you know what happened next. That’s right. I framed them. Remember when I framed Annabelle’s “Laugh Until Your Belly Aches” T-Shirt? Or her monogramed dress? Well it was just like that…only Merrier. (Ok, I admit it. I have a framing addiction. At some point, I may need to be stopped. Or move into a bigger house. One of the two.)
To make my sleepy time decoration, first I took an 8×10 frame and her two pairs of Christmas pajamas…
I cut out a piece of cardboard (from a box headed for recycling) to fit the frame.
Annabelle immediately noticed it sitting on the hutch in our kitchen when she came downstairs from her nap. “OHHH!! What is THIS!?” she asked me as she pointed and hopped up and down. When I explained that they were her Christmas pajamas from last year, she was in Love! She now points it out to all visitors, joyfully explaining, “Look! Look! Those are my PAJAMAS!”
A cuddly, memory-filled Christmas decoration!
