Pajama Friday

Well, it's the day after Thanksgiving and it's almost 1pm and here we all sit, still in our PJs. Well, to be honest, Bryce is only wearing half his PJs. The bottom half is a bit naked. We're working on this potty training thing and have found that using a pull up doesn't trigger his brain to go to the bathroom when he needs to go so we tried to get him to put on underwear, but he refused. So instead, he's going around sans pants. Makes for some funny Christmas tree decorating pics that I can't post online.... Plus, there's nothing like decorating the Christmas tree and overhearing Jason say, "Bryce, get your penis off the table!" Piper has been a peach and was in her bouncy chair yelling at me to get my attention the whole time I was decorating the tree. Caroline is in full on Christmas spirit mode and has been singing, dancing, and just puttering around with the Little People Christmas sets and all the Christmas books they haven't seen in 11 months. And right now they're happy as ever because they finally get to watch their favorite Christmas Wiggles DVD before naptime. Piper is snoozing in the swing and I think Jason is passed out on the couch.

There's a lot of decorating yet to be done and things to sort through. Honestly, a bunch of it needs to be thrown out as a few items are showing their age already. I've got a banister/railing to deck out with holly, a mantle to spread with Christmas items, stockings to hang, and some mistletoe to adorn on the overhead hallway light. And let's not forget letting the 2 big kids decorating their mini Christmas trees in their rooms. They are very excited for that! But I think that will be a post-nap activity. And tonight, I've promised Caroline we can watch Home Alone for the first time - one of my all time Christmas faves.

I wonder if any of us will get dressed today? Will Bryce put on pants? Will poor Piper's congested cough improve? Will Erika make a pumpkin pie because there was no pumpkin pie at Thanksgiving dinner yesterday? Will Caroline sit still for Home Alone? All these questions and more to be answered later...

Allen was rolling with laughter over the "Get your penis off the table!" comment! Wishing you good luck with potty training!

We had strawberry-rhubarb pie...no pumpkin here either!
