pajama day






















We had a pajama day around here. Savannah's been asking for one lately so today was the day. We hung out on the big couch downstairs playing games and watching cartoons and not getting dressed. We had a pillow fight and ate pancakes for lunch. We pretty much holed up in the house, ignoring the 110 degree heat outside, ignoring the neighbors and phone calls and even (gasp!) the internet for most of the day.
Just a silly hang out together loungey kind of day. We even did a great project that kind of went along with our lounge around in pj's all day theme... the kids make their own original stuffed dolls.First I had the kids draw a big animal/monster/doll/whatever they wanted to make on paper. Savannah wanted to make some sort of pink striped tiger and Sawyer's is a "guy" who ended up being just basically a big circle with feet.






















Then we cut out the pattern in material they chose from my scrap bag...





















After I stitched them up (I like to think my remedial sewing skills only add to the charm of these "kid made" dolls) they set to stuffing...









































Sawyer, making sure Savannah knows what's she's doing...
















and apparently he had some advice on her technique...















ta-da!
















Meet Taylor the tiger (with faint pink stripes)
and Zacky .... the um, guy. :) He has one blue eye like Mommy and one brown eye like Daddy, in case you're wondering.






















Have you had a pajama day lately??

Looks like pajama day was fun at your house today. I love the homemade creatures. Too cute. They will remember that day for awhile and probably keep asking to have another one. What a good mommy you are Heather!
