"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

Project 52: week forty-two

April 6-12, 2014

Sunday Snapshots:

Raelynn had a sleep-over at Grandma and Tank's house on Sunday night, so it was just Elliana and Declan to help us make our pizza...

If Colt has milk allergies when he is older, we will know why!  Such a kind brother to share:)
Declan loves Colt so much! He was lining his frogs up for him.

Tuesdays are gymnastics! Raelynn is having fun and improving each week with her direction following as well as the actual skills of the class.  It's good for her because she hasn't really been under anyone else's direction other than Sunday school.

Lucky for Ike, Colt is into grabbing things now.  Ike will get some more attention again!
Wednesday was a very special day, as it marked one year of Elliana becoming a Frazey! April 9, 2013 we were in Ethiopia to attend court.  The Van Engen family was so sweet to remember this special day for us.  What a surprise when we had flowers delivered to the door!
Oh summer sun...why must you wake my kids up so early?  I know they are capable of sleeping in because they do it in the winter.  But come summer and these kids are up at the crack of dawn.  Sometimes mommy just isn't quite ready to get up! (I'm working on getting up before them, but it's hard when they get up early)
This week one day I got Declan out of his crib and put him in Raelynn's room-she was already in her bed reading books. I told Declan to stay in bed with her and read books while mommy went to brush her teeth:)
It was very sweet to see them through the monitor sitting together and Raelynn reading to him.  I had to sneek in for a picture!
This goofy girl told me to take a picture of her drinking and she posed like this! haha. 
These moments.  The crazy moments when I embrace the chaos.  By God's grace, I can soak it all in and laugh with them.  By the end of this I think they were all on the dishwasher and Colt and I were quite entertained.  One day far too soon these will be moments I look back on and think they were the good ol' days.

We went to lunch with Great Papa on Saturday!
Saturday night it was windy enough for flying a kite!  We were walking back to the wagon and I saw our shadows and thought it would make a great picture.  I love it!  Will definitely be getting one of these once Colt can stand and maybe frame it!

  1. Raelynns necklace is adorable in the Sunday pictures! And her pose in that other one with the straw, to funny! What a personality she has! And I love the idea of framing the shadow picture once Colt can make his own shadow!
