We can't believe that Tava has started Kindergarten.  She was really excited to go to school and ready!  Tava is still full of life, loves to joke and be silly, and is also enjoying gymnastics. Connor misses having her around, but I think he is adjusting well and like's to take over the role of being the big brother to Grant.

My Boys

I love my boys!  Grant is now 3 monts old and is growing fast.  Connor is so fun to have around and is a sweet boy.  I couldn't ask for better sons to have.


The kids had a great time easter egg hunting at this muesum in Plano.  They actually got some eggs, so we might have to again next year.

Grant at 2 months

Grant is really growing. He is now 2 months old! He is for sure our biggest baby lenght wise at his age and I would say weight, but Tava was a pretty chunky baby. He love him and Tava and Connor love holding him and giving him attention.

Grant Michael

We are so excited to have another addition to our family. Grant Michael McMurdie. We already love having him in our family!
We can't believe how big he was, 9lbs. 6oz. and 22inches long. We figured he was going to be big, but not that big!

Latest Happenings

Sorry it has been awhile since we last posted. I think being pregnant and keeping up with two kids and doing other projects can be the reason.

Mark is enjoying being a nurse and we are enjoying being in our own home. We love our house but I still find things to be done to it. Here is a picture of our latest project.

After Upper cabinets done!


We still have the lower cabinets to do, hoping we can get it done before our baby comes!


Love this picture of Connor looking at a picture of Mark's family given to us from his parents!

We had a great Christmas! I think everyone enjoyed the gifts they got. It's was fun to see Connor really into unwrapping his presents this year. Poor kid was sick but still had fun playing with his new toys!

Christmas Eve

The kids had fun making a ginger bread house cookie! We had some of my family over for Christmas Eve and had a great dinner together. The kids also opened a gift which is always p.j.'s.

Then before bed the kids sprinkled raindeer food out in the backyard lawn.

December Events

I decided to make the kids christmas shirts this year, they seemed to like them.

As a family we went to the Gaylord Hotel to look at all the christmas decorations. Tava and Mark ended up tubing in their indoor snow tubing area, thanks to a couple that gave us their left over tickets! We love going out there and have kind of made it a family tradation to go every year.


Tava and Connor were both pirates this year for Halloween. Connor wasn't to thrilled with being in his costume that I made him, but he wore it to a couple of Halloween events that we had.

They really loved painting pumpkins!
