Tori's Fantastic Birthday Week

On Tori's birthday I went to her school to have lunch with her. Timothy and I also were able to join her in class as she shared her "star student" poster...this is where she talks about her favorite things, her heroes, plans for the future and then answers questions...very fun for her mother to observe!! The last picture in this collage shows Tori with Uncle Donny and Aunt Kendra and her cousins...they came to meet her before we left for church...delivering birthday hugs, banana bread and a gift card!!!! They made Tori feel so special! (click on pictures to make them larger)
Tori wanted a Baseball Cookie Cake and Baseball cupcakes (which she iced herself)!

This sweet smile on Lael's face is so precious. She seems so honored and delighted every time Eden is in her arms!
We were so blessed with a beautiful day to be outside playing with fun friends!

As you can see, we had lots of help from family and friends...that always makes parties more FUN !!

Our parties lately have not been complete without a pinata!

Thank you, kelly, for posting this fun day and for all of the pictures. I was smiling throughout everyone of them. You all are so blessed to be by family especially in light of the wonderful sacrifice you all made for the years you spent in Benin. I know you loved your time there, but isnt it great to have such a host of family sharing in the events of your lives? I thank you for allowing me to feel a part even though I am miles away. You all are in my thoughts daily and in my prayers of thanksgiving. I love you all.
Tori is growing up so fast. Those cupcakes looked like a professional made them. I wish I could have been in the classroom to view her presentation and her answering of questions. I would have been really quiet and would not have interfeared, I promise. I am so glad that you and Timo were able to go. What a blessing. God is love. Isnt it wonderful. jk

What a fun party, Tori. I hear you got some of the other girls interested in baseball now! Way to be true to yourself.

Your smiles show you were really enjoying your 10th birthday. Wish we could have been there.

We love you very much.
