Murrill Girl Update

We've been on the sick list this week.  We are pretty much over it (knock on wood), and we couldn't be happier.  Ain't nobody got time for that!  Just thought I'd jot down a few things the girls have been saying/doing lately, so I won't forget.   Probably only things a mother/grandmother would love, but enjoy anyway:)  

-  Kiki calls American Girl Dolls, "Musical Girl Dolls"

-  This morning, Mark and I were in bed and Kiki climbed in with us.  We started asking her random questions and the stuff she came up with was just priceless.  I asked her what her favorite animal was and she said she loved monkeys.  Then she said, "Mom, you like monkeys, right?  They are gorgeous."  

-  Our friend Dave came with us to the Biltmore today.  We were walking along and Kiki said, "Is that dude coming back to our house?"

-  Rosie wears her bonnet EVERYWHERE.  She's gone into full Little House on the Prairie mode since it arrived.  She eats, plays, and sleeps in it.  My mom sent them a few weeks ago.  They were mine when I was a little girl.  She also sent one that was my great grandmothers, which is pretty special!   

-  Rosie is very into "working out" lately.  She likes to use canned vegetables as her weights, she jumps over pillows, and Mark has taught her to do jumping jacks.  

-  Mark has been taking the girls swimming on Sundays at the gym and in last few weeks they have improved so much in the water.  They used to be terrified, even with floating devises on.  Rosie would rarely leave the steps.  Now (in their life jackets) they jump in from the side and go all the way under.   They "swim" across the pool in their jackets and float on their backs.  It doesn't seem like much, but remembering where they came from, this is HUGE!  So proud of my girls.  

Rosie, aka "Mary"

Laura or Carrie, depending on the day

It snowed this week, and the girls were very excited to get out in it.  

Late night sledding with Dad.

Such a sweet little sleeper.  

Ready for church today.  

Enjoying children's story.  Rosie's such a caring big sis.  

Someone got a haircut and seems to be proud.  

Little flirt!
