A Little Halloween


Sadly this year has not been full of Halloween festivities for my family. Typically I am all about dressing up and going out to as many Halloween parties as I can, but this year that enthusiasm has been beat down with being 9 months prego and a sick toddler. Those two things couldn't keep me away from my church calling though.
Friday night our ward had a Halloween party. It went great. I dressed up as a fried egg. Unfortunately I was busy getting things prepared and didn't get Tori dressed up for the party. I am dressing her up for Halloween, and I'll post pictures of her for sure.

Happy Halloween

Theo the Horse

video

First things first, I typically do not dress Theo up. Well I do dress him up for Halloween. I put his jacket on him today because I didn't know what else to do with it when I found it cleaning up.
Second, HAHA, Tori has started to call Theo 'horse', HAHA, and trying to ride him. Actually this isn't good. Theo is a well mannered dog and has never bit a child. However I could see if this could bring him to his breaking point. That is why I am trying to get her to stop while I was recording. Hmm I guess I was sending mixed signals, maybe that is why she was not listening to me.

Play Time

Here are some of the things our family has being doing the last few weeks...

We have been building towers as high as we can
Really high towers. This one was taller than me.
Going to the park. Tori has learned her way to the park and has started pointing out the directions to the slides.

Making silly faces


We have also experienced Tori's first fat lip. Poor girl was hit right in the mouth by a moving see-saw seat on a swing set.
And best of all we have been playing with DAD

The Office Jig

Jake and I are The Office fans and it is only right That tori be one too. Every time the intro music comes on to The Office Tori does a little jig. I love that I caught Jake dancing too.

Jumper

Tori learned how to jump this week.

After learning the song Shake Your Sillies Out and spending the day a three year old Tori learned how to jump. I love watching her jump because I can tell she is totally proud of her new skill.

Swim Lessons

Every Tuesday and Thursday for the past four past weeks Tori Has been attending swim lessons. By far her favorite thing she learned how to do was hang on to the wall and move around the pool. The hardest thing to get her to do was float on her back and blow bubbles, but she finally did both of them. Another hard thing to get Tori to do was give the swim instructor a five. Every time Amber, the instructor, came a around Tori would fuss or totally ignore her presence, but on the very last day after we dried off and were about to head out the door Tori nicely gave Amber a five.
