Wow..sorry...I will post more I promise!

Jason has been on the computer non stop working on papers and I have been busy finishing Christmas presents! I am almost done...just a few final touches!
We also decorated the house for Christmas and made Christmas goodies for all of our neighbors and friends! Wow we were busy! So that is my excuse for not posting!
Well, here are some pictures from the last little bit!
Two weeks ago I let Tori play with her cereal after she ate it! I took a whole bunch of funny pictures, but I liked this one the most. I figured she could get dirty since she was going to have a bath afterwards. I got a cute bath video too, but I am still not sure how to add the video without it taking so long!
These two pictures were taken on the 5th. We went to our ward's Christmas party. She wore the outfit that Grandma Frann got for her for me (or vice versa) my mom is a bargain shopper and she got the whole outfit (jeans, shirt and jacket) for $15. I did have to take it back to Macy's to get a bigger size before she wore it though (and had to pay the taxes) because Tori was too long (the shirt was a belly shirt and the jeans looked like she was in a flood). Needless to say in some clothes she has reached 6-9 months!
We had the Dunns over last Monday to decorate the tree and make chocolate covered pretzels! Yummy! We covered other things too like Carmel corn and kix. White chocolate covered Kix are delicious. I also made some peppermint bark from candy canes and white chocolate.
A week later Tori wore the cute outfit again...I couldn't resist! Isn't she adorable?! I think these pictures are funny because you can't see her long blond hair with the window behind her. She looks bald! Ha ha ha!
I made this wreath last year and finally finished putting on the snowflakes so that I could put it on the door (thanks to a bargain $3 magnetic wreath holder from Wal-mart!) I made this stocking for Tori with buttons and notions from Wal-mart. I already had the stocking so I just added some flare!
Tori playing with her new favorite toy...Noah's Ark, also given to her by Grandma Frann for Christmas!
One of Tori's new favorite pastimes is to listen to the singing snowmen that we have. She loves them and will sit and watch them for as long as I can stand the music! Cami loves to get in on the fun too!

I don't have your email address, so I will just tell you here. Marc and I decided that we will pay $30/day. I really do not know what the going rate is, so I hope that is a fair amount. I think I did, but I am not sure if I told you that my student teaching is all day. It would be from 7:30-about 4:00. But luckily Alivia takes a 3 hour nap to give you a break. So let me know if you want to do two or three days a week. Or if the all day does not work, then let me know. And again, it would be from Jan. 12th-the first week in March. Thanks!
