Torah received a little gift from Aunt Jamie and Uncle Andy today and she had a blast with all the fun gifts! Thank you SO much guys, she LOVES them!!
Torah’s First Tea Party April 19, 2010
This past Friday we headed over to our neighbor’s house for a tea party. It was lots of fun and Torah had a blast! It pretty much ended up that the kids just ran around and played while the adults ate and chatted 🙂 That afternoon, Torah went to store with us to pick out what kind of cupcakes she wanted to take to Maggie’s house. She ended up picking out funfetti and wanted purple and blue icing with pink sprinkles 🙂 So of course, we made those specific ones! She loved help making them, however wanted to eat the batter, then wanted to test a cupcake after they were iced 🙂 She didn’t quite get that we had to wait until that evening to eat them! Anyway, it was a great time and there were 5 girls there and they all had a ton of fun. I can I just tell you how great it was to just walk out our front door, 2 houses down and we were there! Love it!! Here are a few pics from the evening.
Some Easter Pics April 6, 2010
Some how this year we didn’t get a family picture at Easter, but I did snap a few of Torah. (surprising I know)
Birthday Party Fun April 4, 2010
On Saturday, Torah went to her friend Zan’s 4th birthday party. I think this is her first birthday party where there were multiple kids at the party. It was fun to see her interact with the kids. It took her a little bit to get comfortable, she had to scope everything out at first 🙂 The party was at the Houston fire Museum, which was an awesome place. It was the perfect size for a party, not too small, but not too big to where you feel like you might lose your kid! They had a fire truck to climb all over, a front of half of a fire truck to play in and a pole to slide down! Torah LOVED it all! Her little face was so red when we left and she slept great last night 🙂 Going to that party is making me think about Torah’s party, granted that is in August, but no harm in thinking about it, right? Right now, she is slightly obsessed with playing super hero. Her neighbor friend, Maggie, had a cape and Torah loved wearing that cape the other day while playing. I’ve been looking on etsy and I think I narrowed a few down. So, right now I think a super hero party would be fun, we’ll see if she is still interested in a few months! Here are a few pics from the birthday party (actually, quite a few!)
The future??? March 30, 2010
Is this what it’s gonna be like when she’s a teen?? I was talking with my mom the other day and Torah said, “here, let me talk to Mamaw.” She then walked throughout the house talking to Mamaw and singing all of her songs that were playing on her dvd! No lie, probably talked to Mamaw for a good 20 min. 🙂
Last weekend I was able to get away to Target and Hobby Lobby all by lonesome 🙂 I felt like me head was spinning with all sorts of ideas while walking through Hobby Lobby. I ended up buying some paint and some scrapbook paper. I have plans for the scrapbook paper, just haven’t got to that project. I picked up the paint thinking that it would be an easy way to bring some color into the house. We rent and are unable to paint, so I’m trying to find ways to add color. I’m waiting to purchase some fabric for curtains, so I thought in the mean time I could whip something up. I figured, spending .38 on some paint, couldn’t hurt 🙂 I ended up painting some frames that we had, I was bored with the plain black frames, so I went to town. For real, I went to town, I ended up painting 5 frames, plus I painted a mat as well! I really do love the way they turned out, not bad for .38 cents! I was trying to find a mat to go with our wedding picture, but the white was not looking right, then I remembered I had some black paint and painted the mat. I think it turned out pretty good! My next project is to makes something with the scrapbook paper, hopefully by next week I’ll have that one up 🙂
