We always give the kids pajamas for their Christmas Eve presents. Always. It's a fun tradition that they look forward to.
This year I just wasn't feeling it. The Christmas spirit was eluding me so I took the girls with me when I went shopping for their jammies. They picked them out-there was no surprise, no special moment of me choosing just the right thing for each of my kids. Nope, there was a tired and lazy momma letting the kids pick their own jammies.
And guess what?
They loved them just as much as if I had spent lots of time choosing them. ;-)
That's not the only thing we did differently this year.
We didn't buy presents for them either. we bought a few stocking stuffers at the Dollar Tree but nothing else. We did give them $25 but that's it. It was simple and sweet.
They loved that too!
Here's to simple Christmases that focus on family and not on things.
