Pajamas and a Bedtime Story

My little girl always gets a new pair of pajamas to wear on Christmas Eve night. That way, when she bounds down the steps on Christmas morning, she is camera ready! Besides that, it's a little easier to get an anxious child to bed when you offer new pj's.
This year, I have decided to begin a new tradition. I love to give her books for Christmas, but this year, I plan to give her one special book on Christmas Eve night. It will be a bedtime story that will have her dreaming of Santa and pondering the true meaning of Christmas.
The Santa Train Tradition is a beautiful book that describes the special journey of a train that winds through the Appalachian
Mountains every Saturday before Thanksgiving. The story is true, and has special meaning to people in our region. You can read more about the Santa Train and this book: http://www.thesantatraintradition.com/
So, if you have little ones in your life, a gift of pj's and a book is a super-fun idea. Actually, it can be a really cute gift for anyone. An adult might enjoy a little herbal tea or scented candles thrown into the mix.
Shopping tip: Target has some really cute Christmas/Winter themed pajamas that won't break the bank.
