Lesson 13- The Priesthood Can Bless Families

Lesson #13 is up (woo hoo go me!!--even though I should be writting a school paper ). It is centered around the responsibilities that a father has in his home which, as suggested in the lesson, doubles as a check list of qualities the YW should be looking for when they are looking for a potential spouse.

Bonjour! Welcome To Paris....Camp Kick Off 2011

So sorry for making you feel like I have abandoned you all...that has not been the case. Just got swamped with last minute school projects and assignments and girls camp and now trying to get over being sick. So with that being said, let me show you our camp kick off. It went off great and the girls had a blast with it.

First, you saw from the previous post a generic ticket which was similar to what we used. One of the other YW leaders made this great sleeve to "house" the ticket.

email me at  if you would like a copy of this sleeve...its editable and is a word doc. The band is not included but but they are simple to make. Our band had this year camp theme scripture from Mosiah 18:21.

Here is the primary room, it was set up kinda lke a bistro style setting (we were short on time and desperate to get it completed before others arrived). The top picutre contains sillouettes of The Eiffle Tower, the Arc de'Triumph, and Notre Dame Cathedrial. Then there was three tables set up and covered with table clothes that had a basket that was filled with 7 different kinds of cheese and slices of white and whole grain bagettes. Then on the plate aside was some french coconut macaroons and doughnut holes and home made grape juice.

Here are some of our leaders and girls that were there with us that night. We had the class room set up like an airplane. We had a stewardess and a ticket clerk. Here the girls had in flight snacks (mini water bottles and fruit snacks) and a presentation presented to us by another YW leader on Unity which was this. If you take a single pencil, it is easy to break but if you try to break a whole handfull at once, it is harder to break. Each pencil is different just like all of us are different, but when we work together we can become united unlike the single pencil who chose to go away from the group. We then passed out last years certification certificates (yeah, they were late in given them to us this year) which after that, we had landed at our destination.

Once we landed in France (no remember not one of the girls or leaders knew where we were going) we had our YW President greet us and tell us some infromation about France then I handed out to the girls a sheet of paper and had them list 3 things they liked about camp last year, three things they did not like about camp last year, and then what they wanted to see, or do, or eat this year at camp. Then we concluded the night by singing the song "Holding Hands Around the World" which can be found HERE.

Overall it was a great night, like I said earlier, the girls and leaders all had fun and came up with some terrific ideas. They are excited about camp this year which I have to say makes me excited about it too. Again, sorry you had to wait but I appreciate your patience and loyality.

Preping for our ward's camp kick off

I have been spending most of my time since Thursday night thinking of ideas that we could use for our camp kick off. Since our Stake leaders had chosen "Holding Hands Around the World" as our Camp this year, our ward has chosen France to be the country we represent. But if you read the last post, you would have already known about that =]

So like I said this is still in the planning stages and I am working with two other leaders to get the final details figured. This is what we have so far (pictures to come as they get taken or when projects get finished):
We thought we would do a flight to France. I had found on Sugardoodle this idea which shared this link to being able to create your own air line tickets.
The website has a place where you can enter a name and also destination. I have left those specifics off this particular picture but they are included on the girls tickets.

My other leader is creating the sleeve that will house the ticket withthe information and dates about camp listed on it. We had even joked about making them use it to get onto the bus when they actually leave for camp.

Anyway, we are going to have them "check in" and move to the "Security" section. Here we will have our opening excerises before loading the plane (the room we are planning on using for this is an adjoined room with a door in the wall leading to the next room). The room they will now enter will be set up like the inside of a plane. We even have a script (which will be posted at a later time) that our flight attendant will read and for our in flight movie, we will have a leader give a presentation on unity (since that is the purpose of camp this year). They will even get snacks to eat while on the "plane" -we have small water bottles and fruit snacks.

Once the presentation is done, we will have our flight attendent announce that we are making our final descent etc... then the girls and other leaders will be ushered in to the Primary room which we will have decorated with french items, have the national anthem playing.... Once they get there we will have some info on France (like culture, food, traditions, etc.) and then that will lead to a discussion with the girls to get their ideas and their objectives for camp this year.  Then of course we will have french refreshments.

Again this is still in the planning stages and I still need to get some apporval from the YW president (which I will talk with tomorrow) and then hopefully I will post some pics of what we have done thus far.

Girls Camp 2011

Just got back from our stake girls camp kickoff and I am excited to get busy. Our stake theme this year is Holding Hands Around the World. Each ward in our stake is representing a certain country...we chose

There is SOOO much we can do with this theme in terms of decorations, food, songs, etc. Now that we have a theme and a country...I can finally get creative and work on some neat stuff. Will be posting my progress and any cute handouts/ideas that I (or any of my other leaders/girls) come up with!

Au Revoir!!!!

March's Personal Progress Motivator

Is finally up and ready to download for your enjoyment. It took me some time but I finally found some super cute St. Patty's day digital scrap kits that was free from Delicious Scraps! Make sure you check it out!

So this is my idea for using this little gem. I have found some yummy Grandma's Sugar Cookies (you know the kind that alsways make the super yummy, but oh so rich pink frosted ones?) that were half the size of the original pink cookie and had green frosting and St. Patty's day sprinkles on them! (I found mine at Wal-Mart for around $2.75 for 10). I will put each one in a small little baggie and tie it up with some green ribbon and attach the tag. Super easy right? I will post some pics of how mine turns out as soon as I get them made (I ran out of ribbon *sigh*).

Alright, so I finally got the ribbon I was missing and have pictures now to post for you!
Here are the items I used.
 Ok, so not quite the Grandma's Cookies that I descibed but they still taste just as yummy!

Here is a close up of the had green and white sprinkels with little green shamrocks! 

Found these bags at Wal-Mart in the party section, for a pkg of 20 it was $1.50!

Another Picture of the finished product!

Made 20 of them! Whew....
