Not last week but the week before...

Blarg! Got behind there, didn't I? ;) Here's a quick catching up from the week between Christmas and New Years...

1. Remember how I've been trying to get the boys shirts at Christmas each year (instead of pajamas)? Here were this year's shirts:

Asher's says "My Patronus is a Donut"...Noah's has the Batman equation...and Micah's is a purple dragon.

2. Between Christmas and now, we've been really enjoying our many new games. On New Year's Eve, we learned Ticket To Ride: Europe and had such a good time we almost missed midnight. :) 

3. Speaking of New Year's Eve, that was our 21st anniversary. As usual, we didn't celebrate that specific day. Nathan and I did, though, enjoy a lovely dinner out earlier that week...and neglected to take a single photo. 

4. Once upon a time, I mentioned that we replaced our master bathroom sinks and faucets and promised pictures. Unfortunately, I didn't take a good before picture. Here's one from 2014 (when we were redoing our whole bedroom and bathroom but didn't actually redo the sinks and faucets):

It's a poor picture...but they're beige sinks with ugly chrome faucets. Here's what they look like now:

The sinks are white now and the bronze faucets now finally go with the other fixtures that we changed out back in 2014. Yay!

5. Relatedly, as part of our anniversary stuff, we finally put stuff up on the bathroom wall...

6. And, I can't figure out why it took me so long but I finally started displaying the holiday cards we receive and am thrilled with the results:

And that's some of what happened between Christmas and New Years. Whew.
