sad

i come to you today, with a sad heart. our sweet abner died this week. :( unfortunately, i witnessed him being attacked by two boxers and he died before i was able to get him to the vet. it was pretty awful for me and i cried all day. we'll always love you and miss you abner! you were a great cat!

its beginning to feel a lot like christmas

we're been doing a few christmas-y things so far this month: we went and got our tree from a tree farm, we went to the christmas story at church where we got to do a few fun activities, and today we went and had our picture taken with santa! woo too!






i'm learning that campbell is a 'girly' girl who doesn't like feeling anything dirty or slimy or gross...see below



and our good friends were mary, joseph


and lastly, we went to see santa today. i was expecting the worst, and was pleasantly surprised by how well campbell did with santa. i feel like she's at the perfect age to hate santa and be 100% afraid of him. well, she didn't shed one tear and she didn't even try to wiggle out of his lap. success!

again, its been a while...

since i last showed you the picture of our sweet girl, a lot has happened: we celebrated thanksgiving up in michigan, we got to meet baby averie (campbell's first cousin),i turned 29, i made some new nightstands for our room, the webb's had family pictures taken, and i got a retainer. i'll start with thanksgiving. one piece of advice - if you're going to be driving 18 hours with a one year old, you must have a dvd player! aaron and i would have lost our cool several times if we hadn't had one for this road trip. we really grew tired of hearing the mickey mouse clubhouse theme song, but as long as she wasn't screaming we were fine... while we were in michigan, we were able to meet the newest woolsey, averie morgan! aaron's older brother, ryan and his wife lindsay had a baby towards the end of october so we loved snuggling such a tiny, brand new baby! before we left for michigan, we were really trying to work with cam about 'being gentle'. overall she did great - except for the one time she threw a block and hit baby aves smack in the middle of the forehead. oops. it was really wonderful having all the woolseys together. here are some pictures of thanksgiving, courtesy of ryan.





i also made some new nightstands, with the help of my awesome friend, carmen. i was inspired from this website. i don't really know why, because i don't really consider my self creative. but to my surprise, they turned out great!





i'm not going to show you my 'after' photo yet, i'm just going to show you our new, improved bedroom. :) but they look just like the inspiration, only maybe a tad darker. i may not be creative, but evidently i'm really good at copying. :)

i turned 29 and got a retainer. both uneventful and painful - literally, my teeth hurt :)

i mentioned here about our webb trip to colorado and having professional pictures taken. well, since silas got sick the day of, we had our pictures redone around halloween. we had our family friend, melissa take them out at the farm and here are a few that we liked:









now we're gearing up for christmas! we're going to get our tree this week and start decorating! we're in for a busy month! happy holidays from the woolseys!
