Tori Lately

May is always such a busy month of the year filled with a lot of end of the year activities. Tori had her share of fun events. First, her preschool put on an adorable Mother's day program. They sang some really cute songs, and made some priceless gifts for the moms. They each took a turn telling everyone what they loved to do with their mom the most. When it was Tori's turn she said that she loves planting flowers with me. We have only done that once, but she must have loved it! The next week I went and bought some flowers for us to plant =) Here are a few cute pictures from that program.

The next big event of May for Tori was her Spring dance recital. It is so fun to see her at each of her recitals, and to notice her turning into more of a little dancer every day. Here are a few of our favorite pictures. The lighting isn't very good for picture taking in the dance room, but she still looks so cute. Brandon really wanted to get a picture just of her feet.I love this action shot of her leaping.Her favorite song to dance to was "Singing in the rain", because they got to use umbrellas =)Now on to event number 3, Tori's preschool graduation! Tori is finally done with preschool. It feels like she has been in preschool forever, and she is very excited to start Kindergarten next year. She loved her preschool class this year. I wasn't able to go to her graduation program =(
but Brandon got a lot of really cute pictures.Tori loved her teacher, Mrs. Karin so much. The day after her graduation she came upstairs to me crying. She said, "I miss Miss Karin" It was so sweet. Hopefully she will love her kindergarten teacher just as much. =)Here are just some other random pictures I have been wanting to post of Tori. Painting is one of her favorite things to do. Lately she has loved painting outside on her easel.
Our cat, Sarah loves to sleep with Tori. No matter where she is sleeping you can always find Sarah right there next to her. There have been times when Tori has climbed into bed with us at night. A few minutes later, Sarah always ends up in there with us too. The other night we found Tori asleep on the stairs. Sure enough, there was Sarah curled up right next to her =)

This post made me miss Tori and all of you sooo much! She's such a sweetheart! I love how she's looking at the camera and smiling in all of the Mother's Day program pictures! David would totally have wanted to do something like the feet picture.
I miss you guys! Tori is growing up too fast!
