Matching Christmas (Elf on the Shelf) Pajamas (and nightgown)

Those of you on Facebook with me, already know this little humorous story from this evening, but for those who do not, here it is:

Funny moment tonight at our household.  The boys first experience with nightgowns (oh what we learn from our sister!). Sarah has only worn pajamas, so Donovan and Aaron have not had any experience with nightgowns previously. (I didn't dare mention or pull out the photos of Donovan as a newborn wearing those gown nightgown things that newborn boys and girls wear.) Anyhow, tonight the kids opened an early Christmas package from their Godmother, Aunt Candice. Sarah opened hers first - a nightgown. We put it on her and she twirled all around in it and we told her how cute she looked. I told the boys that Aunt Candice was sending them very special matching pajamas, "just like Sarah's" was apparently my wording. I went on to tell them they would wear them tonight after baths, and many times this Christmas season, and especially on Christmas Eve and Christmas night. Somewhere along the way I seemed to have lost them. They were staring at me in ABSOLUTE DISBELIEF. Then the questions started, Why would she send us DRESSES to wear to bed?" and "We are BOYS. Boys don't wear THOSE. Well in the olden days they did, but not NOW. Not US." It was hilarious. I mentioned we should be thankful for the gifts we receive and just wear them! The boys opened their packages, thinking they were nightgowns! Only once they were fully opened did they see the pajama PANTS in their package. "Phew! It's only the PICTURES that match," announced Aaron. "They are not DRESSES!"  Here are photos of our 3 kids in MATCHING Elf on the Shelf PAJAMAS (note: note 3 matching Nightgowns - phew!)
