Fighting the cold in style!

It's cold here in Utah!  I mean, really cold!  Temperatures are 15 to 20 degrees below normal.  Dressing in layers and wearing warm clothes is a must!  The stores are packed with sweaters, long sleeved shirts, vests, coats, hoodies, and any thing else you need to fight the winter chill.
Jordan went shopping the other day in hopes of finding something warm to wear.  In his search for the perfect layered look, he found something at Savers that reminded him of his younger brother, Jacob.  With a glad heart and a deep, abiding love for this brother, he purchased the item of clothing for $2.00.  He hurried home with his new found treasure and presented it to Jacob.  With a tear in his eye and a cry of joy, Jake proudly wore his new vest...all evening, with his friends.


(Sorry to say, this is NOT a google image)
Click on the picture to see all the glorious detail.  The cats are knit with mohair, bells and bows adorn each picture.  No wonder Jacob looks ecstatic! How do you feel about Christmas sweaters and vests?  Do you have several in your closet that you bring out each year or do you avoid them?  I don't know about you, but, the more I look at this vest, the more I'm falling in love with it!  I can feel a giveaway coming up soon...if I can wrestle it away from Jake!

LOL! What a great find. I think it's beautiful - but for a boy and a little small makes me laugh. That is quite a lot of detail.
I used to have some - but I must have given them away... because I looked last night to wear one and couldn't find a single Christmas sweater/vest/sweatshirt... What was I thinking... :-O
Jake is a cutie in a Christmas vest! It's the silliness in life that makes it much more fun!

That is a steal! I looked for crazy Christmas sweaters last week, on the cheap, and finally found some at KMart.

Oh, my! Once again, you leave me speechless! :) (Does laughing count as speech?)
This is merriment at its finest :)
What a good brother Jordan is...what a thoughtful, thoughtful gift. Jacob can get some good mileage out of this, me thinks...

That is stinking hysterical. Sorry for those who love them ---but I HATE the holiday sweater, vest things. No matter what the season, I don't want to wear it.

Cold, welcome to my world

Allison is invited to an "ugly sweater" Christmas party...too bad you guys don't live closer..she could probably borrow it!

Brenda said...

Too funny! What brotherly LOVE! And quite a find at Savers...one of my FAVORITE stores! The other day I found a BIG stack of piano lesson books...JACKPOT!
I DO have a favorite "Christmas" sweater...it has sweet little carolers and music notes all over, AND I wore it just last night to our ward Christmas party!
