Just 1 More

Tori had a great weekend with the kids that came up for Thanksgiving. She did not have a good time shopping. She was very disappointed to find out that the stores were picked over. She was hoping to find Trouble Dusty Trails, the little sister of Prairie Dusty Trails, LaLaLoopsy dolls of course. But there was no Trouble to be found. She was so disappointed I found her one online. It should be here in a few days, and then Tori can start making plans for the sisters.

So, my mom wanted to know if Tori really played with all of these dolls. Yep. I’ve seen her dress them all up and sit them behind shoebox desks while she teaches them in front of the chalkboard. I’ve seen her put them to bed and cram them into dollhouses. She rarely plays with just one. It is usually three or more. Poor Patch Treasure Chest, a boy, is wearing a sassy purple dress right now.

Long Day

Tori got up bright and early this morning without a complaint. She was ready in a flash, all in pink, for her day of fun with the girls at the sitter’s. She had two big bags of stuff to keep everyone entertained and her little brother, to boot. Eli seemed very pleased to have his sister along on the ride. No doubt they will tucker out around 9 tonight after 9 hours of play.

Both are excited about the Macy’s Thanksgiving Day Parade and the pie and cookie baking. They are also looking forward to getting the Christmas stuff out. Huts and I can’t remember what we have and don’t have, so it should be a surprise to us as well.  I keep saying we are doing to do the outside up right, but who knows. The woman across the street has us beat whatever we do. Her yard is covered in Christmas decorations!

Wiped Out

Tori made it to both friends’ this past weekend. Shaylee had a sleepover, and Tori came home happy but tired. She went to Brianna’s on Monday for a few hours for a birthday party playdate. She came home happy but really tired. She got a second wind, but woke up really tired this morning. Huts gave her a bit of caffeinated soda to pep her up on the way to school. She told me she wanted to go to bed early tonight. She must really be tired if she is suggesting that!
This weekend there is nothing on the agenda, and Tori is happy. She knows that we are cleaning house and preparing for Thanksgiving, and she could care less. I doubt there will be any moping about boredom this weekend!

Lalas to Come

Like her brother, Tori is looking forward to Christmas. She has targeted dolls this year, Monster High dolls and LaLa Loopsy dolls. She asked for Venus Flytrap, Spectra Vondergeist, Abby Abominable and Operetta Monster High dolls, plus their school. She asked for Harmony B Sharp, the first LaLa to sing and dance, and Bea Spells-a-Lot and her little sister, Specs Reads-a-Lot. Santa has done some shopping, along with Grandma Marie, and this is definitely going to be a doll year for Tori.

Tori was jealous that Christian had so much to do recently.  Well this weekend, she is making up for it.  Tonight she is going to McDonalds and Shaylee's house for a sleepover for Shaylee's birthday.  Tori was ready to go!  She picked out several presents for her and seemed excited to go.  We've got to pick her up at 11 tomorrow and I'm sure she'll be exhausted.

On Monday her friend Brianna is coming to pick her up for a playdate for her Birthday on Monday afternoon.  Tori will be spending Veterans day at Brianna's house.  She can't wait!  Now she's the one who gets to have all the fun while Christian gets none!

Tori is also losing another tooth.  It is barely hanging on and has become a little discolored.  She won't let us yank it out though.  We are trying to get her to eat things that will help get it out, but she's not cooperating much.  Either by not eating on that side of her mouth or avoiding the food.  Eventually it'll come out, but not willingly on her part.
