My Spin on Elf on the Shelf...

I saw this cool thing called Elf on the Shelf about a week ago on AGD. I Loved the Concept of it and you all know that if it even has a remote chance of making my kids behave, I'm all over it. So I went hunting...I called all the local stores that might have it. None did. So online it had to be. I checked several online sites and the cheapest I found it... thirty bucks!!! Now there is no way that the Main Man is going to let me spend thirty dollars on an Elf. Can you picture his eyes bugging out of his head?? lol... So this is Cherish(which I paid $5 for at vons )... Cherish is Comets wife and Santa sent her to our house to keep and eye on these kiddo's. Every night she goes home to report to the Big Man and then heads back to us for the day. The girls are Eating her up!! Every time Kylee starts to do something she's not supposed to I hear her say "oh no....cherry(cherish) will see me" and she stops!!! How great is that?!?! Too bad she can't live with us forever.

Emma's New Hat

Emma got a Hat at Targets Black Friday Sale. She wore it once and it fell apart. When we tried to return it target wouldn't let us get our money back so we got another one. That one fell apart too. So this time we got a different style. Lets hope we have better luck with this one and shame on Target for not standing by their Customers. Lord knows I spend enough money there. Anyway.....Take the High Road Jessica, Its better to just let it go. So here are some pictures of Emma in her cool new hat. Like the one she saw Uncle DJ wear (she told me that when she picked it out) .

Christmas Fun

Tonight we decorated the Christmas tree, and put out the rest of the decorations. I have to finish the kids stockings tonight then I'll be able to post them. The kids had a blast. I let them make pizza's for dinner. Which is always a hit. Then they scarfed them down and were tearing into my boxes of decorations. lol...I had to fix some of the decorations after they went to bed because 95% of them were on the bottom 2 feet of the tree. We even got the the Main Man involved. Didn't last long but hey progress is progress.

Bye Bye Ivy....

Well she just became too much to handle. Our Beloved dog now has a new home. It has become impossible to keep her in the yard. We even Completely enclosed the backyard and she broke right through the lattice we put. Jumped fences higher than we ever thought possible. We caught her across the street stalking some little pomeranian puppies and we knew she had to go. Luckily our neighbors mom was able to take her. I'll miss my sweet dog that used to love to sleep on my porch. :(
