More Bithday Pictures

I have been meaning to post some more pictures from Tori's Birthday, but things have been pretty busy so I haven't had the chance until now. On the night of Tori's actual birthday we had a little family party. Tori was really nervous about blowing out the candles so daddy helped her. Tori always has the cutest expressions when she is opening presents. She is really shy about saying thank you, but is always so grateful for everything she gets. That night as I was tucking her into bed, she said, "mommy, this was the best birthday ever!" Then a few seconds later she said " You are the best mommy ever!" She is such a sweetie.

The next morning she had a little birthday party with a some of her friends. We had it at "My Art Workshop" Here are Tori, Alexis and Tori's friend Jayse goofing off while we were waiting for everyone to arrive.
We picked the birthday package called, "wood you paint me?" Each of the kids got to pick out anything they wanted to paint from a big assortment of wood projects. They then got to paint them and decorate them how ever they wanted. They all were very focused on what they were doing. They were so quiet! The lady doing the party said it was the easiest birthday party she has had there.

While we waited for their projects to dry we had cup cakes and opened presents. I love this picture of Tori. This is when we are all singing Happy Birthday to her. Like I said earlier she gets very nervous about blowing out the candle. You can tell by this picture. =)

Her friends spoiled her with a lot of fun presents.

What a fun party, and what made it even better was that I didn't have to get anything ready or clean it up!

Happy Birthday Tori!!

Today our sweet Tori turns 5 years old! I feel like I am always saying this, but it really feels like time is flying by so fast! Tori has been so excited about her Birthday and has been asking for weeks how many more days. Last night the girls were in bed and I was in the kitchen making her cake and wrapping presents. I heard some whispering so I went to investigate, and Tori and Alexis were sneaking down the stairs. They said they wanted to see if Tori's Brithday table was set up yet. I thought it was so cute. Tori woke up bright and early and quickly went downstairs to see. Here she is with her Princess birthday hat on. Tori loves clothes. She changes her outfit at least twice a day. We got her a new dress to wear and let her open it this morning. She was very excited. I was the same way about new clothes and especially new dresses when I was little.
I made her pose in front of her Birthday table. We love Tori so much and are so grateful that she is a part of our family. She brings such joy and happiness to our lives. She has such a unique personality, and we are constantly amazed at the things she says and come up with. Here she is last week on the first day of preschool.
Tori started dance again this past Wednesday. Whenever it is someones birthday they sing happy birthday and dance around the birthday girl. I am glad that I was able to get it on video. And also glad that I finally figured out how to post videos! Happy Birthday Tori!! We love you so much!
