Christmas was bitter sweet this year, as my grandmother passes away on the 24th. But I think having my one year old nephew here really helped my mom. It was wonderful to have Christmas with a little one around and see him enjoy all the fun things :)
Christmas was nice...got up early and headed over to my parents to watch the little man open his first stocking...he was not too impressed. I guess it's hard to impress a 12 month old. Then he took a nap and we opened presents around 10am. That kid got spoiled!! But that's ok because a lot of the gifts were books...yes, a book from the English Teacher auntie...I know :)
I got a really great knife block set, so now I have no excuse not to cook great meals :) I also got a really cool mason jar set and mason jar drink dispenser...yay!!
So other than that, I've been grading essays...
I shouldn't complain...I'm grading in 72* weather on my patio :) Using my new mason jar!

Hope you all had a wonderful holiday and are enjoying and hopefully relaxing. Look for a new, timely, 2014 product for the classroom coming soon!
