You know when you have an idea in your head and you think, oh that would be super cute and so easy? Well, I had that idea this year for a Four Generations One Roof family Christmas picture and can I just tell you, shopping for coordinating pajama’s for nine people was a bit tough. I spent 2 hours in Kohls one afternoon with 3 shopping carts filled with different themes and I finally settled on these. My grandparents thought I was kidding when I asked them to get their new jammies on after we at Thanksgiving dinner but they quickly realized I was serious. They are not the fastest people on earth so this took a “loooooooong” time. Minted was kind enough to sponsor our Christmas cards this year and also give one lucky reader a $200 Minted credit to their online store. Keep reading, you can enter below.

My grandfather thought I had absolutely lost my mind with his Santa pajamas. We all laughed at him and he kind of found himself funny too.

If you are not familiar with Minted, their motto is ” We uncover design genius through ongoing design competitions. At Minted, all that matters is good design. Designers submit, and the Minted community votes to tell us what to sell.” I love that real-life people like you and me, can submit their designs and if chosen, be sold on Minted through unique, high quality stationary, cards, wall art and more. I am so excited because this year, I created custom wrapping paper for each of us. Wait until everyone sees their gifts with their names all over them!
