Christina Jammies Year 2

(From the Mama Szrama: a tradition we'd like to have for our children is that they receive a new book & new pyjamas every Christmas Eve. So far, I've made Eowyn's from recycled clothing each year...we'll see how well I can keep that up as our little family grows. =D This year I made her a matching top & bottom from a pair of my own flannel PJ pants, which had steadily ripped up the bottom.

Here you can see the original pants, from Oct '09:)

And her reaction on Christmas Eve!! (Yay! Success! =D)

PS- I've sewn 2 drawstring bags (one largish, one smaller), which match her stocking, and these will house her Christmas Eve Jammies & book each year, cutting down on paper waste, and adding one more fun little tradition.

Eowyn Opening Bike, Longer Version

A bit longer, with many more cute Eowyn expressions and "Wow!"s...and more opening.

Eowyn Enjoying Early Christmas Gifts

Due to limited car space, we let Eowyn open her gifts from the Presley side of the family the day before leaving for Mommy's grandparents (Mama Peggy & Daddy Ron) in Ruston, LA.

Opening Grandma & Grandpa's gift:

Enjoying it:

Current Tricks (at 14 mos)

Imitating my favorite scene in the book "Goodnight, Gorilla!"

Imitating all my favorite animals, and showing off how I can call for Daddy just like Mommy does. I like to put my head against the baby gate at the top of the stairs and call out for him from the landing.
