My 9 year old is sooooo over monogrammed anything - that is, before we moved to NC. Now that we live in the "south" (It takes leaving Florida to realize that We Weren't the south) my daughter is all about bows and some monogrammed items (which makes me elated!!!!) The other day we were at the mall and she saw a cute little blond twenty something wearing monogrammed jeans. So she requested them for Christmas. Here they are. I love them. I considered making myself a pair but I am thinking that perhaps i should start exercising again before I draw unwanted attention to my derriere. (the monogram is off center -It was 5am, hopefully my daughter won't notice)
My family tradition for many years now is to open 1 gift on Christmas Eve. When my children were born we continued the tradition. Its sounds great but the kids always know what they are getting on Christmas Eve. We give them pajamas. I figure this ensures that the pajamas they wear to bed and debut on Christmas morning (for all the pictures) are presentable. Well, I have been wanting to make my kids pj's for the last 2 years and I always run out of time and have no choice but to purchase some. Since I stopped taking orders at the end of November this year I was actually able to accomplish a variety of my desires. One of them being Pj's. Here is my son's Christmas PJ's. I will post the others tomorrow.

I still need to applique the shirt for my oldest daughter (i will post that picture later)
Last year I bought some cute polka dot PJ's for $3 at walmart after the season. I put a monogram oh those and decided to make my her everyday PJ's. She is my singer and dancer (she is only 5 so I am not sure what that really means, but she enjoys the karaoke machine greatly). she began ballet lessons this year so I decided to make her ballerina themed pj's so she doesn't feel left out when the other 2 open their homemade PJ's on Christmas eve.

These monogrammed market totes are fabulous. My kids gave these as gifts to all of their teachers this year. I ordered an extra one for myself. I can wait to monogram and use it:)
And finally, My for my Alabama loving (born and raised) friend that lives in Florida. A monogrammed hounds tooth umbrella.
AND I EVEN MADE SOME TOFFEE TODAY. YUM, CAN'T WAIT TO EAT IT. WHO AM I KIDDING, I HAVE BEEN PICKING AT IT FOR THE LAST 3 HOURS.
