Fight For Betty Boop Graphics

So...I had a BLAST the last two days with my Corel Paint Shop Pro Photo X2 (thanks Mom!) putting stuff together for team Fight For Betty Boop's fundraising events (if you haven't donated yet, do it now).

Here's what I've come up with.  Be nice if you critique, but PLEASE be honest!

This is the info card we're handing out for the Wii Olympics (I know against isn't spelled right).

And the back of the card.

The poster for the event.

And my favorite....

Tee hee!

And two Elle Belle stories.

1. Elle was talking about Power Rangers today (I didn't know she knew the Power Rangers).  She said they were fighting their friends the bad Power Rangers.  I asked why they were bad?..."Because they don't want Jesus in their hearts."  LOL!!!

2. Elle told Kyle he was delicious.  Kyle asked to clarify..."Delicious?"  "Yes, Daddy.  You're so sweet."  

LOVE that girl!

Pretending SAHM

Yesterday and today I got to pretend to be a stay-at-home-mom with two sick kids and help from my hubby today.  After 3 years of being a mom, I think I'm more ready to be a stay at home mom.  Not that I'm ANYWHERE near that point in my life.

Staying home with the kids has made me realize how very badly I want a rec room for the kids.  It's ranging on the verge of NEED.  A room where the toys can be thrown about and don't have to be picked up every 5 minutes if you have to cross the room.  A room where, if they color on the walls with crayons, it isn't the end of the world.  A room where they can just be.

However, when moments like this happen...
It's not so bad. :)

Back to work tomorrow.


Ellianna Evangeline

These 4 weeks off from school have flown by and I can not believe I “get” to go back on Friday. It really is a good thing. I’m so grateful that God has allowed me the opportunity and the means to go back after all the years and not be completely out of touch with reality.

The house has NOT sold yet. Darn thing just won’t go away. It’s going on two months now that it has been on the market. Kyle and I are trying to be patient. All in God’ time.

Easter has come and gone. It was excellent to experience it with Elle this year. Kyle and I are so proud of her and we are so thankful for what Bethany church is instilling in her. Not to mention that it’s just her personality anyway.

We’ve been getting out for some walks around the neighborhood, thanks to late night house showings. Thursday we went to Dairy Queen and then walked around the U of M campus. We came across a family of 3 with a little boy just Elle’s age. We stopped and chatted with them for awhile when Elle decided to share, “Jesus is in our hearts.”

All I could think was, “Way to go girl!” I wish I had the guts to tell everyone I met that Jesus died for them. So…true to her name that was given my God, there is no doubt HE picked her name, not Kyle and I. Ellianna means my God has answered me and Evangeline means bearer of good news. Kyle and I usually call her Elle Belle, which in French would be beautiful girl. No matter how you look at it, she is fulfilling her name. She is a beautiful girl that God brought to Kyle and I as an answer to prayer and MAN is she brining good news (We won’t even get started on Gabriel Isaac :) ).

I hope she doesn’t ever loose that. I hope she always reaches out. I hope she offends people with her love of Jesus Christ. I hope my little girl moves mountains by bowing before her savior. Even with her little skirts on.

Thank you, Jesus, for my little Elle Belle.
