We talked about our our love of Christmas pajamas briefly yesterday, but it is still one of my most favorite things about the holidays and especially on Christmas morning! Our husbands don’t participate, but the boys love it! When we saw these pink party pajamas with red feathers, we knew they would be the perfect festive pajamas for us girls. They are seriously so fun to wear and on sale right now! The fit is supposed to be somewhat “oversized” in the top, but we still took our normal sizes – just FYI!
One of our favorite holiday traditions is to wear matching pjs on Christmas Eve. It’s so much fun to have new pajamas and especially for Christmas. The boys get so excited to wear their Christmas pajamas, they understand that it’s something special. We put them on right after we finish dinner, and then we spend the evening playing games or sometimes doing some last minute wrapping. We usually end up spending the most of the day in them on Christmas, staying comfy and cozy all day long. We would love to hear some of your favorite holiday traditions!
Christmas Pajamas for Kids
The boys have been wearing this brand of pajamas for Christmas since William’s first (!) Christmas. We love the fun prints and they are so soft, too! Ford is in the onesie and the boys are in the two-piece set.
Christmas Pajamas for Her
After we found the boys’ Christmas pajamas, we wanted something that would coordinate, but not scream “Christmas” as we like to wear them year round! We found these light pink and white striped pajamas and loved the color and that they wren’t strictly for Christmas! They also come in a shorts version and blue and white.

Matching Christmas Pajamas
Always one of our favorite traditions… matching Christmas pajamas! As the boys get older, it’s always fun to have this tradition to look forward. Since William’s First Christmas, we have always found the cutest printed pajamas from The Beaufort Bonnet Company for the boys. The boys are wearing the TBBC Night Nights in mistletoe musings. Here are their pajamas from Henry’s First Christmas and last year!
This year the three of us girls have been really into loungewear, so that’s what we decided to do for this year’s Christmas pajamas. We love a blue and white stripe and although these “pajamas” aren’t red or green, they are soft and cozy… and we will be able to wear them after Christmas, too!
Christmas Eve Services
Every Christmas Eve we go to church to worship and praise God for the birth of our Savior Jesus Christ. We love seeing our friends and singing worship and Christmas songs together. It’s a great way for us and the boys to keep our eyes on just why we are celebrating Christmas and why it’s such an important time.
In case you are looking for a church to attend on Christmas Eve, our church, Citizens Church, has services at 3 pm and 5 pm!
This tradition continues to be such a fun afternoon with the boys’ and their grandparents. This year we had brunch at José on Lovers and then went to Neiman Marcus Downtown to see Santa. We love the Santa at the NM Downtown location. He is so nice and patient with the little ones and usually you don’t have to wait in line too long at all! Best part, no tears this year!
This is something we used to do regularly, but haven’t done in a few years while we were wating for William and Henry to get a little older. We’re so excited to start it up again this year with some dear friends. The carriage ride starts at Highland Park Village and it takes you on a leisurely ride around the neighborhood to see all the beautiful Christmas lights!
Trains at Northpark
We’ve been seeing the Trains at Northpark for the past two years and this year the boys have already been asking when we’re going. They love trains and love seeing all the trains and settings at the exhibit. If you are local to Dallas, this is a fun activity to do!
We started this tradition with William last year with one large gingerbread house. This year we found a kit with four little houses. It was perfect! Each of the boys could decorate a house of their own in the style they wanted. Pretty sure we avoided a lot of drama with this! And it was so much fun seeing how they chose to decorate.
We’ve been doing the Angel tree since I was a little girl and it’s something I look forward to every year. We typically will pick a family through our church’s Angel Tree. We took the boys yesterday to help pick out toys and clothes for the family we adopted and they loved being part of it.
Decorating Christmas Cookies
Making Christmas cookies is another favorite Christmas tradition and so much fun to do with the boys. William’s first Christmas cookie decorating session was so special and he’s looked forward to it every year since. We’re sure Henry is also going to love it this year! How could he not, with all the sprinkles and frosting and cookies to eat? This is a great activity for a cold winter morning.
We’ve been using the same fabric Advent calendar for years. We hang it on the back door at Gigi’s house and William can’t wait to get there to add the next day’s ornament to the Advent tree. He is so excited to mark down the days to Christmas. We’re sure Henry will be looking forward to it just as much next year!
