"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: January 18-24

Sunday Snapshot:
The last snapshot with four kids under four!
Sunday afternoon we were given the opportunity to see The African Children's Choir in Chandler.  It was a great show put on by these kids and their drive and determination to reach their dreams was inspiring.  To hear these children sing God's word was beautiful.
Tuesday was 50 cent corn dogs at Sonic! That calls for a picnic, right?! We got a bunch of corn dogs (and one chicken sandwich:) and went to a park in Agritopia for a fun night out as a family.

Colt is fearless! He loves going up the stairs and down the slides at the park!
We made homemade finger paint this week.  It was a weird texture that didn't smear very well but the kids still enjoyed getting a little messy and being creative.

Thursday evening I thought I was going out to dinner with just my mom and her friend.  To my BIG surprise, I walked in to find a big table of all of my closest friends.  I was so blown away and it was so special, words can't really even describe it.  My mom had put it all together and the girls had all made arrangements to be there that evening.  So so special! A great way to kick off celebrating turning 30!


Friday night (January 23) was our six year dateiversary! Our first date was a double date with the Larsens to Benihana and Jesturz.  We have been to Jesturz so many times since because we always enjoy it. 
This year we had a dinner at home with the kids, Mimi, and Mrs. Spencer (who drove out here with Mimi) and then left the kids with them and we went out to Jesturz.  Brent was selected (without even raising his hand!) to be the sound guy for one of the skits.  He did a great job!!
Saturday was a very fun filled day!! We started a new tradition with the girls in our family.  We hope to make this an annual tradition with the sisters, moms, mom in laws, and eventually future sister in laws and daughters. 
We started off the morning at T.C. Egginton's for breakfast. 
From there we went to the Premier Outlets in Chandler and once we found a shoe store, everyone bought something!
No one went home empty handed! We called it a success!
And what would be a better way to end a fun filled shopping day than a tea at AJs?
We made it home in time to change into our costumes for my 30th birthday party! It was a movie themed costume party. Brent planned a very fun evening with Buca De Bepo dinner, minute to win it games, and of course cake! It was so perfect.
We make a pretty good Wolverine and Katniss, don't we?
so thankful to be surrounded by my friends

and family
