Whirlwind Monday!

I've been very busy trying to find a replacement for our terminated employee. I forgot how much I despise interviewing. I'm really just in awe of how people conduct themselves during the interview process. It can be quite amusing. Since I am getting close to my Christmas vacation and maternity leave, I am less amused these days. I interviewed a woman this morning that I really liked. I hope her references check out! Keep your fingers crossed.

I hope everyone had a nice weekend. We managed to make it to the National Mall this weekend to see the National Christmas Tree. It was a lovely evening and quite warm given the date. Sydney was very interested in the train and yule log displays. I must admit it concerns me a bit that she was so enamored with fire. Ha ha! We managed to take a few photos before my crappy camera, what a shock, broke. I'll try to post those a bit later.

The good news is that I got an early Christmas present! :) Sydney got me a brand new digital camera, which was given to me early because mine broke. I love it! I have got some reading to do. This one is much more advanced than my old one.

We spent all day at home yesterday. It was so nice. We did some chores and then made cookies. Sydney loved cutting out all the shapes. I think she liked eating them the best! :) Who wouldn't? They actually turned out fairly okay. I'm not much of a baker...at all!

Well, I've got to grab some lunch. I hope you all have a great day!

What a great way to spend the weekend. We haven't made our cookies yet, but I'm hoping to get that done soon.

What good fortune, to get a replacement for your camera - don't you just loathe reading all those directions, though. I have yet to read the instructions on my old camera - the kids just taught me how to use it, and how to hook it up to the computer.
