Thankful....that Christmas is coming!!!

Well, Thanksgiving happened. Food was eaten. Games were played. Fun was had. And of course, pictures were taken. I've picked a couple of my favorites:

Now - on to Christmas. It is fastly approaching all of us with only 28 days to wait. So I think it is only fitting to make a Christmas acronym.

C is for Christ. obviously.
H is for Happy because everyone loves getting presents.
R is for Receipt so you can return things you didn't want
I is for Iceskates in hopes that the pond will freeze
S is for Santa because who else could be a better example of Jolly?
T is for Thanksgiving because that is before Christmas
M is for Money because Christmas is so expensive
A is for Another 365 days until Christmas 2008
S is for So much good food

The first tree of the year for me...


Oh Coldsore

Upon my lips
A coldsore sits.

It's red
It's sore
It's gross
And I don't want it anymore

Im applying Abreva
I'm popping pills
Anything to help
This thing kills.

It is't glamourous
But it is true
And don't you laugh
Cuz it could happen to you.

The end.


9 days to thanksgiving

For those of you who didn't know (and i'm assuming that's most) I got a single wisdom tooth pulled this weekend. I didn't want to be put under, for obvious reasons, but that was a mistake. Here is how my Saturday appointment went: First, Dave calls and gets me all riled up with talk of some poor planning "I" did for the wedding weekend. Next, I go to my appointment and pretty much freak out. So before they even do anything, I'm crying. I'm shaking, I'm scared, they numb me. That does little to calm my nerves if you can imagine, so they decide to hook me up to some laughing gas. Then they start the surgery. So I'm laying there with huge sunglasses on to protect me from the light, a tube strapping me from the nose to the back of the chair that I have to breathe out of and I'm watching the whole thing happen in the reflection of my dentist's glasses. Mid-surgery I start to hyperventilate and I'm crying all over again and after a little while the surgery is over. So, if you're thinking of having oral surgery without being put out, learn from my mistake. This is the injury. Slightly swollen. But the real reason for posting this picture is the light blue fleece. I learned this weekend that when I'm sick, I don't like to change my clothes. I pretty much lived in this fleece from Friday night to Tuesday afternoon. On a positive note, this temporary handicap gave me the opportunity to do one of my favorite things: a puzzle!!!

You can't really tell from the picture but it was supposed to be a 1000 piece puzzle. Unfortunately, it only turned out to be 997.

Earlier in the week I received further proof that I need a puppy. This happened when I went to babysit and they surprised me with yet another little one i could watch. A 6 week yellow lab. You'll want to see the pic, so here it. *sigh*
I thought I would throw this picture in for good measure. Michael (my oldest brother) got pretty dirty at work on Monday and proceeded to go to the gym with my dad like this so he didn't have to shower twice. In Dave news, he spent the weekend in Denver visiting a couple of his friends from College I think. On Sunday he was supposed to go to his first ever hockey game. Boy was he excited. So you can only imagine how disappointed he was when plans changed and he was left alone, with no hockey tickets in a big city. He enjoyed dinner and a movie solo and then crashed at Ben's friend's house. So to answer your question, yes, Dave is still living the dream out in Colorado. He'll be in town next Tuesday and we are so excited to see everyone again for Thanksgiving!



it's about time

Little has happened since the last post. But, there are a few highlights:

First? Halloween. My roomie and I went trick or treating as a blackberry and a blueberry. After an evening of taking candy from houses, the week continued with a visit from our very own David Dorr. We wined, we dined and we lived it up in Washington for the weekend. In 2 days we fit in: a night out with nat and julia, a trip to salem, cider weekend in vancouver, Nat and Julia's adorable puppies, engagement photos, trip to seattle to see grandma, pit stop at the lake house to see the fam, a quick shopping spree in woodburn, and a 4:30 am wake-up call to go to the airport where Dave and my dad were on the same flight out to Denver. Here are some pics:
