Now that we’ve celebrated Thanksgiving, we are officially in Christmas mode over here at the Manno household! Honestly, we almost didn’t put up any Christmas decorations because we are right smack dab in the middle of moving and it felt like a lot to put up Christmas decorations only to take them down at any moment to move. The reason we don’t know our exact move date is because we don’t know when our loan will be approved. It’s a long story! So basically we could move into our house right before Christmas or right after, and not putting up any Christmas decorations just felt wrong.
So a few days ago we took our family Christmas PJ photo! A couple years ago, I started giving matching PJs to my family as Christmas gifts for all of us to wear when Kevin and I would go home to visit. It’s fun to stay in PJs all day on Christmas! And makes for really cute photos!
Well last year, with Molly being an infant, we didn’t get around to taking any matching PJ photos and this year I wasn’t gonna let that happen! In fact, wearing matching PJs is going to be a tradition for the rest of our lives! Yes, Molly will be 40-years-old and I’ll still be putting her in matching PJs with me, her dad and her 38 year old sibling. Ha!
I know a lot of other families do the tradition of matching PJs so I wanted to share with you guys where I got ours. I got them from eBay! And would you believe that I spent less than $20 on each pair? Mine and Kevin‘s (I got a small in the Men’s PJ’s because I liked them better than the women’s) were just under $20 and Molly’s was under $10! Since Christmas PJs aren’t exactly something we’ll wear all year long, and Molly will grow out of hers come next Christmas, I wanted to make sure I was getting some that were super affordable! So I started doing some research online and realized that eBay has amazing prices! I, like many of you, always used eBay in the past to buy used goods. (Oh my gosh, I remember getting the absolute best deal on a Ted Baker dress that had only been worn once!) But that’s not all eBay does anymore! They sell everything under the sun, most of it is brand new with tags, for crazy good prices! I was actually really surprised to learn over 80% of everything sold on eBay is brand new. And no I didn’t have to outbid anyone. Although I do love a good competition! Ha! Most of the items on the site are “Buy it now” just like any other online store.
Sharing some of my other favorite Christmas PJs I found on the site below….
