Christmas Countdown 2011 - Day 8

Day 8 - Pajama Story Time at Mud Puddles

A friend of mine shared with me a great new tradition that we decided to start this year and it became our Day 8 activity of our 25 Days to Christmas. We have a local toy store that is one of those cute little shops that sells quality toys where the kids get to explore, discover, and read. When the kids were younger, we would be sure to make it a habit to visit their weekly story time, but now that both kids are in school we don't make it there as often. For the Christmas season, they were holding a special night time event where the kids could dress up in their pajamas and listen to Christmas books!

I let each of them bring a "friend"...

Austin really was happy to be there...
even though this picture doesn't show it!

It was such a treat to be able to enjoy this time with Mikayla's good friend Ellie because now that they are attending different schools they don't get to see each that much anymore! Ellie's mom (and my good friend) is the one who told me about pajama story time!

Ellie's little sister, Claire, wanted her picture taken, too!

Story time!

Waiting in line for hot cocoa...

It was a fun night and the bedtime process was so much easier that night. We got home, brushed teeth, and then they hopped into bed!
