I got kicked off my own couch!

Kaylee & Grace really love Sesame Street, so much that they will sit still for an entire hour and just watch it! Yes, that's right folks I have children who will sit still for a solid hour and be quite... Now yes I realize that they shouldn't love TV that much, but some days...er... everyday I need an hour break where I know they are entertained and being good...

Well most day's when it is time to watch Sesame Street, that's when I sit/lay on the couch and sip my coffee uninterrupted. Well today while I was in the kitchen making coffee the girls on their own decided that they wanted the couch, and they were going to lay and relax and watch their program. And well Mom had to sit and enjoy her coffee on the floor... ...

Seriously, they got the pillows and covered themselves up all on their own... I did none of this...

One thing we can all agree on!

Yes, there is one activity that the whole Murray family enjoy's and that is playing in the pool! Enjoy some of our end of summer pictures!!

Our First County Fair!

I am learning more and more that whatever we do with the twins it is really hard to find something to do that they both love at the same time. So this past weekend we went to the County Fair a few miles up the road to see if the girls would enjoy the animals/shows! As soon as we got there Grace decided that she wasn't going to like/enjoy any part of the fair, not the food, animals or shows, oh well. On the other hand Kaylee enjoyed herself immensely! She loved playing and petting all the animals, she would clap and giggle at the magician and safari shows and ate all the food she could get her sticky hands on!

So if you are wondering why there are no pictures of Grace in this blog, it is because she wasn't in the mood.

Finger Painting!

Lately we have noticed that the girls have been enjoying spreading their food around on the table especially if it has a sauce, so we thought it about time to buy them some finger paints!

Kaylee jumped right in and put paint to paper!

Grace on the other hand had to be encouraged to put the paint on the paper and then when she realized she was covered in paint she freaked out and was done! She did try but she only lasted like 5 minutes!
Grace done being dirty!
Grace learned that her pacifier makes a bad paintbrush and a bad pacifier when covered in paint!

My Texas Tornados!!!

Well, Reed and I conquered another long road trip with the girls and survived! The trip down there was great and the girls did rather well for having to be strapped in the car for two whole days! Grace still was a little sick and had diarrhea off and on and that made for lots and lots of pit stops along the way but we all had fun being together on a new adventure!
We left VA around 6:30am and arrived in our hotel room in Jackson, TN at 9:00p.m.! As you can see Reed had a blast tossing the girls around from bed to bed in the hotel! GRACE KAYLEE

The next morning we left Jackson, TN around 8:30 a.m. and finished up our trip at 7:40 p.m. in my home town of Stephenville, TX! It was so wonderful to see all my brothers and sisters and my nieces/nephews that I haven't seen in over a year! We stayed at my Mom's house the whole time and just relaxed and played with the girls! Reed only stayed from Thursday (the day we left town) until Monday morning and I stayed the rest of the week by myself at my moms! It was a great visit and something I needed to do, because I miss my family so much. Then my two best friends' Ashley and Jacklyn helped me drive the girls back to VA where we got to spend a few more days together exploring D.C. Thanks you two from the bottom of my heart!

We also got to visit with Reed's parents for a day in Granbury, TX! We met at the lake were the city had built a public sandy beach area where you can play in the lake and a small little water fountain park! We had a blast!
