"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: July 13-19

Sunday Snapshot:
Declan's birthday party!

Wiggleworm Fun!
They all enjoy pulling one another on the scooters!

Impromptu hair style for Elliana.  Mommy was just going to put a couple puffs in her hair and then it led to this! She does so well and has come so far with getting her hair done.  And I laugh when people say I'm so lucky to have a daughter who sits still for this....believe me, she wasn't born this way.  There have been many tears shed over her hair but she is being trained to sit still.  It is an obedience issue and she is doing very well at it.
The finished product!  I loved it, but it was a pain because after naps they come out.  So it was a lot of work for something that didn't last too long.

We had a groupon that was expiring so we went out for dinner to a pizza place!  With our three foot circus we can't go to just any restaurant.  This place is good because it's loud inside and a family friendly place.
This big boy sat in a high chair for the first time!! He loved it!
And here is the rest of the gang.....so silly and so fun!  We always find ourselves telling our children how pleased we are at their obedience when we go out.  It is encouraging and causes us to want to do it instead of being fearful of their behavior.  We get a little loud entertaining them while waiting for the food to come though:)

Love my view while walking back to the car.....

We had a mommy-daughter date to go out shopping for Declan's birthday present.  We went to San Tan Mall for Dairy Queen.  Raelynn wanted to feed me the entire bowl, so I let her.  So fun to just say YES to things she requests.  That doesn't always happen, but I'm trying to do it more.  The joy it brings is so worth it.
Declan is always putting on the girls' accessories.  We were in the dress up box today and found this headband! Finally one that he can actually wear:)

Thursday was Declan's 2nd Birthday!!  We celebrated all day long doing fun things for him. We ended the day at Joe's BBQ and gave him his Thomas trains and new sunglasses.

Oh the silliness....
Having fun with the dress up box:)  She still loves being carried in the laundry basket, too.

Satuday we went to Freestone Park to get family pictures taken.  I found a great deal on groupon.  It was HOT but the kids did SO well and we ended up getting some really great shots! I will post those later.

Cousin Harper's birthday was on Saturday so we all went out for dinner to celebrate her!  After dinner the kids had fun at the splash pad in downtown Gilbert.

This girl LOVES her uncles!! And what great uncles they are.  They both answer to her when she says "Gant, Gant" with her arms up.
