"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: November 16-22

Sunday Snapshots:
Make room for Mimi on the bench!!

Declan does such a good job of looking at the camera and smiling....but he gets so into saying 'cheese' that he shouts it so loud and moves his head into it while saying it.  Then Elliana says he is being too loud...haha
my argyle men--Declan thinks it is SO cool when he can match daddy!

I always carry the baby around in the laundry basket when I go up and down...Declan didn't want to feel left out

into everything:)
We went to the zoo this week.  The animals were so active and we were able to see the newborn baby orangutan!

The kids have been asking pretty much since Colt came home if they could push him in the stroller.  I finally said yes:)
This week for tot school we focused on the color orange so I got the extra Chinese lantern left from Raelynn's birthday party so we could send it away...

We took a trip to Petsmart this week (what a fun trip in itself! Even if we didn't buy anything!) to get three fish.  The kids didn't know what we were doing when we went there and they were so surprised and so so happy!
Once we got home we put them in their bowls (from the dollar store...this entire trip only cost us $3.55 but their joy was priceless!!) and asked the kids what they wanted to name their fish.  Without hesitation, they gave us names. 
Declan's is Dora (I think he was remembering Dori from Finding Nemo)
Elliana's is Green (Apparently she needs some practice on her colors)
Raelynn's is Sarah (A perfect name for a fish, don't you think?)

We went to the Picture Show to see Dolphin Tale 2.  The kids loved it!

She asked me if she could pull, I didn't think she would actually be able to!
While playing at the park, we were running around in the field and found dandelions.  I taught the kids how to blow them off and we had fun doing that.  Now whenever we see them Raelynn calls them "lions dens" and it takes me a minute to realize what she is saying. :) Declan liked stomping on them!

Friday we made a trip to the airport to pick up Papa!

Saturday was the last home ASU game.  I was finally able to go to a game! It was fun to take the kids and nice to leave Colt with Mimi and Papa.
