Butterick 4222 - Stars!

Every time we pass the fabric department at our Walmart, Logan gently reminds me that he wants star jammies to match to pants that I made here.  I guess he finally nagged enough...
You can see how faded the pants are.  He wears them all the time.
The pattern is Butterick 4222, which I love.  It's such a great basic PJ pattern.
Logan selected both fabric and buttons, and I think they are a great match.  He really has quite the eye.
He was so pleased with his PJs that after I gave them to him, he danced around the living room, showing everyone his star buttons, and then curled up with them in our bed.  That's one happy kid!
*************************
On a personal note, today is the day of the fellowship match, so at noon we should be finding out where we'll be going next year.  Yesterday I was quite placid about it.  We have good options, so I shouldn't have any reason to worry, but I'm sort of on pins and needles now!  I'll update this post when we get the word...

ETA: We got the official word and we will be going to Salt Lake City, to the program at University of Utah!  It is a really great program and we are really excited, although it will be really hard to leave Texas and all of the family and friends that we have here.  But I won't lie, it's about 900 degrees outside right now, so I'm really excited about some milder summers!!  We won't be leaving for another year, as the fellowship begins in 2011.

  4. That trusting God to place us where we best need to go thing can put you on pins and needles. I'm the bag and conquer type. Can't wait to hear.

  7. Isn't it great that something so simple can make the little ones so happy. Are you and your husband going to another place since he just finished his residency?

  9. Great jammies for your little one!!! Congrats on you guys' Fellowship assignment. Salt Lake City, UT is a pretty cool city. I visited several years back for a science meeting. The snowcapped mountains in the winter are quite breathtaking and I hear they provide great skiing:)
