Tori had a her 7th birthday party this past weekend.  She had 6 girls come to the party and 4 stayed the night.  They played games, jumped on the trampoline, watched a movie while camped in the living room and smashed a Barbie pinata.  They all seemed to have a good time and Tori did well not to get upset at anything.  There weren't any fights (except for fighting over who gets to hold the cats).  Sassy was smart and hid for the evening after the pack of hands came for her.  Junior was a little smarter and went outside to get away from them.  Poor Squeaker had to be the baby.  He was consistently put back into the baby bed and covered up.  He had a hard night.  The girls stayed up until 11 and were up and ready to go for donuts the next day.  Squeaker was once again the baby, but lucky for him everyone left by 10.  All in all Tori had a great party and she is excited for her next sleep over.  Here's a few scenes from her party.

Front Tooth Out

Tori has had a loose front tooth for quite a while now. It finally came out on Thursday morning. She was flipping it around with her tongue and Huts pulled it out. She has quite a large gap, and she looks so cute without a front tooth. Christian never had that large of a gap. She got a couple of dollars from the Tooth Fairy and is happy to have her tooth out.

This week the kids are at their grandparents’ house in Kansas City, and we are staying in contact with them by skyping. Christian is the master. He gets it up and going every night around 6 and the kids tell us all about what they are doing in KC. While Christian knows how to work it, Tori is the one who takes over the talking. She bumps the boys out of the way, sticks her face on the screen and starts chatting about any and everything!

She is very excited to be there, spending time with her cousins and aunts and uncles. She is so excited she can barely stand still. Usually she skips around, leaving us with glimpses of her face! What a silly girl!
