"Blessed be the God and Father of our Lord Jesus Christ, who has blessed us with every spiritual blessing in the heavenly places in Christ, just as He chose us in Him before the foundation of the world, that we would be holy and blameless before Him. In love He predestined us to adoption as sons through Jesus Christ to Himself, according to the kind intention of His will, to the praise of the glory of His grace, which He freely bestowed on us in the Beloved." Ephesians 1:3-6

More improvements being made!  Making this house our home more and more.

Brent has been working so hard on the back yard.  He is such a hard worker and even in the heat, he is out there shoveling rock and working to get it done so the kids can play.  This week he had a little helper! 

And since these photos were taken (on Monday, I think), he has the yard practically cleared of the rocks!  Once he gets the rocks shoveled he will get a tiller and get started on the grass.

No, of course she is not picking up dog poop.  She'd never do that. 

Elliana watching through the window.  Declan was in the pool with some toys and no water.

So cute.  She loves being the big helper!

This week Brent also hung some things on the wall!  This is all his doing, because I would probably wait another 6 months before putting something up.  I just think hanging things and putting nail holes in the wall takes such commitment and there is just no turning back.  He just laughs!
Daddy was carrying Elliana in the ergo while hanging things.  I love how her little hand and foot peeked out the side:)

Our very first thing hung in the house! Our wedding canvas right above the fireplace.  It fits perfect!

"Daddy, how nice of you to leave the step stool out for me to climb on"

Second thing hung! This is by the front door.  Thinking of putting some little hooks or something in the corner--although no one wears coats in Arizona, do they!? But we thought it made for a nice little 'entry way' with the table here.

We got the bathroom painted and mirror hung!  I like it a lot! Still deciding what to do about towel racks and a shelf.  And that's baby boy at 27 weeks!
