Tori at the Fall Festival

We attended the Gates Four Fall Festival.  Tori had a good time riding the pony, playing the games, getting her face painted and of course eating a few treats.

Jack Britt High School Ping Pong Champion

 This week was spirit week at Nick's high school.  One of the events for the week was a ping pong tournament.  Nick faced a number of students and was challenged by teachers, but still remained undefeated.  He played the championship today at the Spirit Pep assembly in front of the junior and senior class where he won and was awarded a glorious gold medal!  That's our boy!

Three Years Old...Where Has the Time Gone

 Well, I know Miss Tori turned three in August and we are a little delayed in getting her three year old pictures done, but it was worth the wait.  Tori just loved working with Liz, the photographer at JCPenney.  She has been taking Tori's pictures for the past two years.

Up in the Air

One of Tori's favorite things for Tori and her daddy to do is: Fly...yes he throws her up, up, up in the air...and she LOVES it!

Marbles Children's Museum with the Costa Family

Today we spent the day at the Marbles Children's Museum in Raleigh.  Our extended family from Vietnam came to Virginia and made the day trip to meet us in Raleigh.  Tori and Lily have been talking about each other since our New York City trip.  They had a blast together.  They kept calling each other cousin Lily and cousin Tori.

I Just Love It When Ashley Comes Home to Visit

Last week, Ashley came home from college for a visit.  We did some shopping, some sewing, and ironically, we both got glasses.  She got them for the first time and I progressed to multiple issues with my eyes...they are no longer cougar vision. 

We also went to the Blue Jean Ball.  Tori was dancing up a storm on the dance floor.  They also had a photo both.  This was very cool...we got to take four photos that come out on a card to keep.  So, we did serious and some silly. 

It was a fun night, I came home with two chairs from the auction.  One adorable flip flop chair for Tori's room and the other a hallway accent.
