Beginning to look a lot like Christmas....

Every year I always send out a photo Christmas card. Using shutterfly to create them is the best way to do this. It's easy to use and there are literally thousands of designs to choose from. Shutterfly has a holiday card promotion for anyone who has a blog. If you follow a few simple guidelines, you get 50 free cards!

My first card I ever created was when Trent was one and he was sitting under the Christmas tree. Wow, time passes so quickly. He will be 5 in just a few weeks.

Since the twins came, my life feels like a whirlwind. I don't have much time to do anything it seems. Creating a photocard is such a time saver and is such a great keepsake. This year I wanted to create a card that has a picture of our family and pictures of the kids as well. I love the card I created!

Shutterfly has many items: Christmas cards, holiday cards , Christmas photo cards , desk calendars , photo mugs , and even birthday cardsMy favorite one for this year is this card.

Merry Christmas everyone!

Sorry it's been so long....

It has been so hectic over here at the Murray house between preschool, twins, trains, work, blah blah blah...Not to mention I broke my camera about a month ago at the beach when a wave unexpectedly appeared...nice!

So the babies turned 6 months this past Oct 18th and are doing so well. They are almost sitting up and Devan wants to crawl almost any day now it seems and Tatum has no interest and absolutely hates being on her tummy. Sigh...

So we are taking a vacation next Friday and going on a motorhome family adventure just the 5 of us. We are going to Yosemite for 3 nights and then leaving the rest of the time unplanned. We figured that since our life right now is so structured and scheduled how great would it be to just plan those last 4 days on a whim...

I am really hoping the babies do well on this trip. Justin and I are not looking forward to this week of planning and packing to get us out on the open highway but I am so looking forward to driving away next Friday without a care in the world.

I will take lots of pictures (if my new camera arrives in time) and lots of video.

Hope everyone is doing well.

My cute lil preschooler

Trent started preschool on the 17th two days a week. He has had a hard time adjusting but finally seems to be liking it...well most of the time.

Daddy and T

T ready to go get on the train

Sorry I've been a little bit missing in action lately. I started back at work last Monday and we have been trying to adjust to our new crazier schedule. I can't believe I was off work for 4 months and my little babies are 4 months already! Justin, Trent, and I took the babies last Tuesday for their 4 month check up. Devan is 14 lbs and Tatum is 13.5 lbs...doing great!! My babysitting schedule worked out well last week. Justin's mom, his grandma, and my mom all helped out last week and each week going forward (thankfully)...not sure what we would do without them. What a blessing they are. I go to work and can concentrate on work all day because I know my babies and Trent are taken care of probably better than they are when I take care of them myself. I am blessed to be able to work 3 days from home and still be able to spend those days with them :)
So we took our main man Trent on a train ride to San Diego over the weekend with Justin's parents. Oh how he loved it. We drove to Oceanside (yes, with the babies too) and took the "Coaster" train down to San Diego and back. It is a great train ride with beautiful ocean scenery the whole way there. We will have to go again soon. I have posted some pics from our train journey. Have a great week.

Very determined..

Devan absolutely loves his older brother Trent. Everytime Trent is around, Devan laughs hysterically at Trent and just smiles, smiles, smiles. He wants to play with Trent so bad and watches him all the time...he seems determined to play with Trent as soon as possible. Tatum doesn't really care about Trent all that much and vice versa. T loves his little brother Dev

I have always heard girls do things before boys so when Tatum rolled over from back to belly first I wasn't surprised. Devan soon followed and now he is always on his stomach. I put him under the gym and he rolls over immediately. I put him in his crib, same thing. He sleeps on his belly..I can't get him to sleep any other way. Tatum still likes to be on her back more. So here are some pics of Lil D (as Daddy and T call him) on his belly...I can't believe they are already 3 months old!!

Brotherly Love

Trent is such a great big brother. Devan just adores Trent. He smiles and giggles anytime Trent is around. Here is Trent and Devan watching Baby Einstein together in the bumbo chairs- too cute!
