I have been quite busy since coming back from Montreal and the week coming back after a vacation is always filled with getting back into a routine. Since the new year has started, I have had a lot of grading to catch up on, report cards and IEP reports to do and a grad school observation as well. All in the space of 3 days!
The grad school observation went well - the best one I've had thus far. I also spoke with my AP and she said that my formal (dun dun DUN) observation went really well so we can postpone the post-observation meeting.
I did miss my little minions. They drove me CRAZY on Friday but that's what minions do.
That being said, let's begin with the holiday catch up!
Christmas was very low key. The Aussie and I hosted my family and his brothers at our place. As such, we brought the dining table into the living room (the joys of NYC apartment living) and went all out with the wedding china. One Christmas day, we went to my baby godsiblings' house.
|Earlier that week, it was my dad's 60th birthday. Happy birthday, Jolly Greek Giant!|
|There was a LOT of washing up to do. There was one casualty - |
one of the bar glasses broke when I was washing up.
|Mom's famous peas and carrots - it isn't the holidays without it.|
|Pot Roast with garlic glaze.|
|First course is always a Greek Salad.|
|Tiramisu for dessert.|
|Family Portrait. Pardon the double chin. |
My in-laws and sister in law were in South Carolina.
Next up on the events docket is Vogue Knitting Live and there will be a meetup! Right now, we are planning to meet at 1:30 after the Ysolda lecture. I am still sourcing a place and will scout on the Friday before, so I will keep you posted.
