Your Holiday (Pajama) (un)Shopping Guide

Its that time of year again. You know, the part where you fight the crowds at the store and try to snag the best deal!? Well, if you haven't already gone Christmas shopping for your family, I have a (pajama) (un)shopping guide just for you. 

[now, this is not meant to copy Rachel's post but to "expand" it. ;)] 

You are probably thinking, why pajamas?? Well,  every year on Christmas Eve, our family gets new pajamas. Its been a tradition for a long time! 

So, without further ado, I introduce to you; Your Holiday (Pajama) (un) Shopping Guide.

If you're in the market for matching pajamas for the whole family, look no further! 

We have matching Christmas trees....

and if you have an extra gift, it comes in maternity too...

 or maybe for your dog, because all dogs want to be part of the family!

Moving on to the cabin-y look.

The over sized boyfriend shirt...

or just plain plaid pants.

How about a shirt that says "Flakey"??
(because everyone needs to know about your dandruff problem. geez.)

and yes, it comes in little girls too...

or you could just go the safe route and do all snowflakes.

If you have a "wild" wife, why don't you get her some of these zebra print pajamas.

Maybe you have a "sweet" wife..??

or maybe you want to get your wife pajamas that can also double as scrubs.

Did you say you wanted Grandma's couch pajamas?!?

Or did I hear Aunt Sue's wallpaper pajamas??

The new and "in" pajamas are just waaayyy to creepy and definitely not from this century. *shivers*

Yep. the onesie.

Except, it wouldn't be nice for you just to have it...
noooo, lets get the whole family warm!

Its does come in red..

or penguins...

or denim.
(the new look for coveralls. )

But, you could always just get the matching set for the whole family!

Another new "fad" this year is pajama jeans.
(I actually want some of these. :) )

The styles include, black and blue boot cut or skinny.

Now, if you want to go back 3 decades, here's the style for you...

Moving on to matching couples, we have "Slumber Jacks"...

Im-crazy-over-crossword-puzzles pajamas..

no comment.

Last but not least, for the women in your family,
you can get her some pj's that say what she doesn't feel like saying...
(it says "Fatigued")

Well, I would show you more but, I am sorta fatigued of this post. ;) So, why don't you head on over to Pajama Gram to see for yourself!?

Happy (Shopping) Monday Everybody!

{Disclaimer: I was in no way compensated to write this post. I just wanted to create a fun, not harmful, guide to holiday christmas shopping for people's loved ones. Even if it is a dog.}

I Guess You Could Call It "The First Thanksgiving"...

(Phew! *wipes forehead* that was a long title.)

We stayed home for Thanksgiving for the first time in 3 years. Of course, we invited a few people over for lunch/dessert.

Our church, Brookhills, has been involved in the inner city of Birmingham. As a result, a handful of BH people have moved there. Well, two guys from our church moved into a house and befriended a guy, named Chris, whom they have been helping. T and P were going out of town for Thanksgiving and Chris needed a place to stay.  So, we invited him to stay with us for two nights. Then, The McGuire Family and Mrs. Lori's mom came over along with our friend Victor

Needless to say, we had a houseful!! :)

The festivities began when the guys played a little bit of "Turkey Bowl". 

Chris and Jason....

Dad and Jojo*

(*that is a whole another post for a different time. he's the guy from India that is staying with us for a little while.)

Then, the McGuire's arrived and Sarah and I played a little bit of "camera".  :)

Even Mommy joined in the fun!

Jojo with the turkey and knife!

After that, we all ate some food and hung out.

Jason and Jojo leading us in praise and worship.

Sarah decided to get in on the action...

Dad leading us in a devotion.

All in all, we had a good time of food and fellowship!!

 [I can't wait for next year!! :)]

A Glimpse of Me Behind The Camera

[or what I did on Thanksgiving :) ]

Happy Thanksgiving Everybody!! 

I feel bad about not posting a "thankful post" but, to be quite honest with you, not enough words could describe what and how much I am thankful for this year. Maybe later I will post something. Right now, I am going to enjoy family, food, and Macy's Thanksgiving Day Parade! :)

The Day Before Thanksgiving....

This is the first time we have been home for Thanksgiving in 3 years. So, I decided to make something for the neighbors this year. 
(Thanks to Beth for this idea!) 

here is the recipe for this awesome snack mix! 


Then, I decided to take some fall pictures...

Leaves, leaves, and more leaves....

Happy Thanksgiving Y'all!!!
