I love creating new family traditions with my husband and kids. There is something exciting about doing an activity that everyone looks forward to, whether it is something small or elaborate.

Over the years we have started various traditions. My husband always teases us that if we do something more than once, “you’d better watch out because mommy is going to make this a tradition!” It’s the truth though. If something sticks and the whole family enjoys it, then I like to make a big deal out of the next time we get to do it again.

One of my favorite regular traditions in our house is what we call “pajama day.” This day is exactly what it sounds like - it is a day for vegging out, relaxing and staying in our PJ’s all day long. Board games, movies, reading and naps are always high on the agenda. To keep pajama day as a regular tradition, our family looks at the calendar each month and figures out which weekend day will work the best for us. As my kids get older and our schedules get crazier with sports events, church activities, birthday parties and school functions, finding a pajama day every month has become more difficult. We try to do it as often as we can though because I really think a day at home to relax with each other does us all a bit of good.

One requirement of pajama day, enforced by my kids, is that we get to have a big breakfast. I am lucky because what they love to have just happens to be my favorite breakfast food…Fluffy French Toast.

If your family is need of a little recharge, try adding a pajama day to your calendar. Even if you can only do it a few times a year, the chance to rejuvenate together is a tradition worth creating.

Great idea. One suggestion though: You should correct the recipe instructions to "whisk first 6 ingredients" because you're not going to combine the powdered sugar or the bread when you do this step. You'd be very surprised what is not apparent to some people. I know a couple who put their new electric percolator in the dish washer & couldn't imagine why it wouldn't work afterwards!

we do all the items in the list but it would only showed the bottom one. We also burn downed branches in our yard in our fireplace when it is cold (also paper from junk mail and bill envelopes). Everyone should should do everything to become eco friendly.

One of our family traditions involving pj's is a pajama ride. Everyone gets their pj's on and off we go! We all take turns deciding which way to turn whenever we come to an intersection. We live out in the country and it is a great way to check out all the back roads and see wildlife.

What a great any-holiday, Sunday-morn, sleep-over, birthday, etc., activity. I am sending this to all my friends & family. And who doesn't love French toast... if there are allergies just substitute. I'll be adding side dishes, sausage, bacon, potatoes, mini-pancakes, waffles, fruit, great idea!

I'm watching two little ones this weekend. I can't wait to try this with warm maple syrup.
