Pajama Party

A usual morning for us consists of me begging Adyson to get dressed and brush her teeth. Wrestling her so I can do her hair and me forcing her to clean up her room. And Sienna is a whole other story. I chase her around with a toothbrush and put clean clothes on her just so she can dirty them again. It's ugly. The whole morning.

Well yesterday Adyson asked "mom, why can't we just stay in our Jammie's today?" I thought that was a great idea, but we had about a million things to do yesterday. So I promised her a pajama party with the works for today.

She did not forget. As soon as she woke up she informed me that today we would stay in our Jammie's, watch movies, eat candy, and just play. So that is just what we did. Ugly hair, Shrek the 3rd was the movie of choice, and barbies. She also has just learned to write her name (I'm very proud) and we spent a portion of the day practicing and coloring. Sienna dug it to. She actually sat through the whole movie and snuggled with us. It was heaven.

When Sienna went down for a nap me and Adyson decided to make homemade oreo cookies. She got to pick the color of the frosting...are you surprised by her choice?This picture cracks me up....she really liked licking the beater!
Today was a very fun day. It isn't easy for me to forget about all the things I should be doing and just relax for a day, but I think today my girls and I really NEEDED a Pajama Party! It reminded me of something my mom would have done with us when we were little. And to top it all of Travis and I got to spend some time this evening here...I'm not complaining!

Pajama Parties are the best. It is so easy to forget the small things that our kids love. Good luck on Friday, our prayers are with you.

Ady is the best -- and you are such a cute mom! I'm craving oreos, now. Thanks a lot!

PINK oreos? That is exactly like Ady. Trayson just walked over to the computer and said, ``Pink? Is the theme pink? You have to wear pink pajamas to come!`` Well, pink is what Ady would have picked!

It sounds like so much fun! You are a great mom! That is one of those things your kids will never forget!!!

Linda Johnson said...

Wow, pink oreos and I did not get one? What is up with that? I did love tending the girls while you went to the Temple. What a treat they made me laugh all night. Love mom

What I fun day! I should be more like that. I hate when Allie's hair isn't done. Those oreos look tasty. I've heard good things about your oreos.

Troy & Cami said...

your pajama party sounds like my day everyday. If we dont go to town, we dont get dressed til half the day is gone or do hair.

Tracy, Courtney & Peyton said...

So fun! I love it when you can just stay home and have a more relaxing day. We have many of those this time of year!

I can't take the battle in the morning. That is why Jake wore his superman p.j.'s under coat to Logan today.
I am crazing those oreo's. I just looked for a treat in the house and could not find one and then I saw these and now I have got to have them. What is the recipe?

What a pretty picture of the temple!

This is so funny because just this morning out of the blue, Macy says she wants to make oreos (which we haven't done in 7 or 8 months) and she wants them to have pink or red frosting. She must have been channeling Adyson, (the friend she has never met). All day pajama parties are just a celebration she hasn't realized yet.

Jan said...
