Almost there

Our kitchen is almost there.

I have a functional sink.  At the moment it is fun to wash dishes in it.

I should have it all done on Friday.

Minus the light and paint. The light will happen this week one way or another.

We changed a textile plan this week from marble back splash (that was discontinued) to bead board. 

Why bead board wasn't the original plan is a mystery -- as almost every "inspiring" kitchen I've pinned  on Pinterest has it.  I'm looking forward to painting it this weekend.

Hurry up Friday!

Annual Train Ride with Santa

With Thanksgiving bringing us thanks for all the blessings we have and a family wide case of the stomach flu, we are ready to bring on the next holiday season.

The house is almost trimmed.

The kitchen is "almost" (and I emphasize the air quotes) done.  Tomorrow is "supposed" to be the finishing day minus the backsplash.

The Nutcracker ballet was seen and reported as "perfect", "amazing", and "awesome". Now the middle boy is pirouetting around the house (more than usual).

The Santa Train is checked off our list.

The Santa train is always fun.  This year the big boys were very honest in that they knew this was not the "real" Santa.  I could tell that it wasn't as magical as it was before but nonetheless, it was fun!

Reagan reported that he'd like Lego's, Mason would like a surprise, and Logan would like Santa to leave his seat and then maybe bring him a tractor, combine, and wagon.
