Though we weren’t sure it was going to happen this year, Christmas bonuses were passed out on Friday. With much MUCH excitement, a very unexpected bonus, and a bit of puppy dog eyeing, Dave and I finally got a new camera! It’s a Nikon D3000 for all of you who know anything about cameras… which does not yet include me. I’m learning though. Here is an example of the first pictures we’ve taken… and an example of how wonderful and festive my weekend has been.
Friday night was the Nashville Christmas parade.
It was cold, but it was worth it.
After the parade, we went over to the Griffin’s house and had hot cocoa and cookies. This is Allister, who was also on the news that night. A news crew saw him at the parade and “interviewed” him. Which was a great idea, on their part, because he is stinkin’ cute.
Saturday, I did a whole lot of this. Christmas decorating, listening to Christmas music, playing with the new camera…
And today, I did a whole lot of this and one trip to the grocery store for the first time in, I don’t know, a month and a half. Apparently it was the wrong day to try that. I got all the bustle without the hustle of the season. After an hour and a half of maneuvering my cart through the madness, I came home, made dinner, started a Christmas project, and did a bit of blogging. Now, it’s time for It’s A Wonderful Life, more Christmas crafting, and some more pajama time.
