Christmas 2011

Now that we've had some time to relax from our busy winter schedule, I've finally had a moment to compile some photos from Christmas.

So what kept us so busy?

I had my 30th birthday in early December, we attended Kyra's work holiday party, Nana and Liliana visited for Luca's preschool holiday party and for the weekend. Then there was Christmas, and during the time off I helped with a political campaign doing data entry. We had Christmas at home, at Kenny's, and with my extended family and the Great-Grandparents' home.

New Year's was spent with Nick and LP, although we didn't stay up too late, and shortly after we went up to the Twin Cities for the first in-person meeting for the non-profit organization Kyra and I are volunteering for. I spent most of the time with the kids keeping them quite while the others met and discussed the organization charter and lots of other stuff.

Luca and I spent the day together on Martin Luther King, Jr. Day, and we had a swimming lesson and then to the capitol to celebrate the holiday with Wisconsin Public Radio, in particular, Jonathan Overby from Higher Ground, and many other people. We listened to a Scottish band, a trumpet, and a gospel choir. That weekend, Kyra and I went to the first symphony of the year, and were blown away by the violinist, Augustin Hadelich, especially his performance of Paganini's 24th Caprice.

So yeah, it's been busy. Good lord. Kyra started her class again, and just finished another meeting with the non-profit today. I hope things will calm down soon!
