Thursday with Tori

I haven’t blogged much on my precious two year old, Tori so today is her day and the double 'T' in the title worked out nicely as well.

Tori’s latest response to being told “No”…


Tori when it comes to taking pictures= uncooperative. Thus the need to take what one can get…….

Tori’s favorite person= Daddy! This comes in handy for the early morning wake up calls…she calls for "my daddy".
I was trying so hard to get her cute silver, sparkly shoes in the picture and of course she would not cooperate that I cut off Rich’s head. Oops! These are her favorite shoes by the way, given to her by her Grandma. She calls them her “Papaw shoes” because she refers to her Gran as Papaw (you figure that one out).

Tori enjoying her rather large chocolate Easter egg….
No pictures just bonus ones……
Tori’s favorite phrase, “Me do it”.
Tori’s favorite color, Papel (Purple) which includes most shades of blue and pink.

Tori with a new twist on the African piggy back….

And why is it that every time we plan to take pictures she manages to fall on her face resulting in a pretty bluish-purple bruise. At least it is her favorite color.......

Life with my vivacious Tori is grand!

She is so darling! I love the picture of her with her babies. I think she has your eyes. Love the face painting. I'm sure she did it herself. What a gifted child!

What a sweet and beautiful little girl! The picture with her daddy is so precious....I'm really praying that my little girl will have a relationship like that wih her daddy! :)

Karen said...

She's got her mama's eyes!

Heidi Jo said...

ditto to karen and ginger's remarks about the eyes, she could have won kool's photo contest with the "I'm a Pepper" shot too!

I love posts like this, what a doll- and the hubby's not to shabby either:-)

That is about all she gets from me. She looks strikingly like Rich's sisters.

Heidi, are you hitting on my hubby? ;-)

Sweet girl! I have a very naughty 3 year old boy that might (by the grace of God) make a wonderful husband for her someday! They would have gorgeous Scandinavian looking children! ;-) Let's get them to sign a contract NOW that we can hold them to in about 23 years.

She couldn't be MORE gorgeous. You two just make beautiful kids.
Thanks for the weight loss encouragement! :)

Heidi Jo said...

as a twin sister that would be weird michelle. i'm just noting that you have good taste:-)

I love the pouting picture. I often have to leave the room when my little ones pout because it is so darn cute I have a hard time not smiling! :)
What a beauty you have there! You know....Gage is quite a looker himself. He's a little younger, but hey that's not a big deal right?

Michelle Franzen said...

H, just teasing you. Thanks, I agree with you--I think he's pretty hot.

G & T, I like the idea of arranged marriages as long as you both know they will live in SA...oh, although polygamy is alive and well in parts here you guys will have to duke it out. hee!

So adorable. Makes me want to hug her. I was a "daddy's girl" and relate. It's a wonderful thing to be.

Just Mom said...

I Want That Chocolate Easter Egg!

(I also think your daughter is just so incredibly adorable, but I felt I had to be slightly different in the comment I left for you.)

Easter egg??? It looks more like a dinosaur egg. That thing is huge!! What a cutie she is. I love the face painting.

Jungle Mom said...

So cute! You asked how long we had been in Venezuela. we have been here 10 years and were in Mexico before that.

Jungle Mom said...

I meant to say, 10 years in the jungle, 10 years in the city. 20years in Venezuela!
