4. Become debt free & build security for my family, so we can then bless others financially also.

5. Continue to grow closer to God, building My family's faith & sharing the Gospel with those we meet, by using the talents and gifts God has provided us.

6.Continue to make money by creating and sharing my thoughts and beliefs through artistic expression: all the while hoping that my art will impact others. "Holly Kennedy

: All I know is, if you don't figure out this something, you'll just stay ordinary, and it doesn't matter if it's a work of art, or a taco, or a pair of socks! Just create something... new, and there it is, and it's you, out in the world, outside of you, and you can look at it, or hear it, or read it, or feel it... and you know a little more about... you. A little bit more than anyone else does... Does that make any sense at all?" Quote from PS I LOVE YOU

Happy Birthday Jaxon!

Welcome to the World my little man.
Jaxon Easton Ellifritt arrived in this world 10/15/2012 at 10:57 am. He weighed 8 lbs 12ounces. And He was 21 inches long.

He was brought into this world by c-section by this lady, Dr. Fletcher.

He has ten fingers, ten toes and a head full of hair.

He has a very proud daddy!
An even prouder momma!
But the proudest I think is big sister!

Yesterday was a really rough day for momma as I had trouble dealing with all the medication and was very nauseous. Baby boy had some low blood sugar when he arrived, so he got a lot of sticks to his feet. But besides that both momma and baby are doing well and are due to go home tomorrow. We are very proud of our little guy and his entrance to the world. He seems to be pretty laid back and easy going. He is doing okay with the breast feeding, even though we are supplementing with formula. We have had many visitors and to love on him. But I do have to give a special shout-out to my dear friend Amey, who has been a life saver. Spending countless hours with us so that John could go home and walk the dogs. Also a special shout out to Grandma Marcie for taking care of my angel and bringing her up here to see him many times. Neither one of these people we could do with out. So thank you guys from the bottom of mine and John's heart!
 Thank you to all of you for your prayers and well wishes. From the four hearted Ellifritt family, love and good night!
