Tori had her school party today! She is really enjoying school. It took her about 5 or 6 weeks to get used to everything....being away from mommy, having structure, etc.

Tori likes her teachers Miss Janda and Miss Joanna! They do such a great job!

This is Tori's friend Mary Harbin. She talks about Mary Harbin at home.


We decided to be a cowgirl this year thanks to Emma Cate. I bought a Lady costume (from Lady and the Tramp) last year on clearance, however we tried to practice wearing it around the house but it never stayed on for more than 5 minutes. So, we turned to Emma Cate...the costume queen.
We had Trunk or Treat last night at church. It was so fun this year because Tori loved it. Everyone at church had their trunks decorated and passed out candy. She loved saying Trick or Treat and getting candy. We kept ending up at the trunk with the inflatable Pooh on top of it. That was definitely her favorite part. Somehow after all the excitement all the kids were still able to go to class. Tori loved her 'costume' and kept it on all night!

Audi and Cole came to see Tori!

Several adults dressed up, too including Jessie and Uncle D. There were about 15 of them that dressed as a box of crayons!
Tori and Luke!

Henry trying to give Tori smooches. He ended up chasing her around the parking lot with his lips puckered and ready. We allowed this happen, but in a couple of years that will have to stop.
This is Tori's buddy, Hannah! Hannah was the flowergirl in our wedding almost 5 years ago!

We had a great trip to Arkansas. We celebrated my Grandma's 80th birthday and my mom's birthday! Playing with the classic popper toy and Papaw!
Giving Mae Mae her birthday cake!
Tori loved playing 'horsey' with Cole!
She was so happy to wake up to waffles every morning. She did not eat all of these, but don't think she couldn't!
She ate cake all weekend. She woke up the last morning and said it was Cole's birthday and she wanted was 8:00 in the morning!

Here is Grandma wearing her new birthstone necklace and looking through her scrapbook. We had all of her friends and family send in pictures, letters, and stories for the book.
She got a new DVD player. John Wayne here they come.

This was me and Audra singing karoke...that's right...I sang karoke.

My grandma has a few shirts from her school that all the grandkids would wear. Now it's time for the great grandkids to wear them.

My aunt, uncle, and cousins came down for the weekend, too!

Happy Birthday, Mae Mae!
