I decided that we could find a CUTE elf and not spend more than $5 on it and do the same thing with it. So I did at Hobby Lobby for $3!! He's adorable and we are doing the same thing you do with the official elf on the shelf.
I call myself self crafty and cheap! LOL
ALL that matters is that my girls love it. I honestly KNOW that Shaylee saw the official elf and thought he was scary so this was good I got the cute cheap one.

You can bash me if you want that's just what I think personally. If you want to spend the $30 on it so be it. I am cheap or thrifty if you want to call me that.
We started it on Thanksgiving day so earlier than most people. He has been all over the place already. The girls take maybe 1 minute to find him they are that good finding him. Shaylee and Cassie still get yelled at daily and I threaten to have Elfton leave for good he did go away for about 2 days then he came back.
Today he was reading a Elmo book and fell asleep.

Since I was on last
- I went from full time to working only weekends. I have just had enough of fast food resturant crap, rude customers, etc. plus I just can't handle the working mom thing it's difficult for me to be able to work and take care of the kids,cleaning etc. just takes to much out of me.
- Steve FINALLY found a job THE JOB he has been wanting for awhile. He's now so depressed anymore.
- Shaylee started preK and loves it.
- Cassie will be 2 in less than a month.
In the next few months we have so much coming up.
- Cassie's birthday
- pumpkin patch/corn maze
- family pictures

She is blossoming into such the toddler!!!! With her therapy she has to be in a walker but she loves being in it and she will stand and walk all over it's wonderful!!She's talking and learning no words all the time and getting such a personality!!
As of 2 weeks ago she is 29.5 oz and she goes in Tues. for her WCC.
I know I can't compare my kids but it's so funny because Shaylee walked at 12 months, hit 35 lb at 18 months and had to be forward facing. Cassie isn't walking yet at 18 months and she isn't close to hitting 35 lbs. She will make it to 2 I bet rear facing which will be so awesome!
Shaylee is still harnessed at 4.5 and I hope that she will make as close to 6 harnessed as she can.

Enjoy the ride here is some random thoughts for today!!
- Steve started learning the guitar because he FINALLY CANCELLED that stupid WOW game of his!!!YAY no more STUPID game!! He needs a new hobby and the guitar is pretty much free so why not. How am I feeling about this????........ ask me again in a few days!!
- Steve also goes for his compass (not sure if that's how you spell it) test tomorrow it will take 3 hours. What are we going to do without him for 3 hours he has NEVER left us for 3 hours we always leave him! It's school day so Shaylee will be in school in the morning, then go pick her up have lunch all together, then when he leaves ....... really not sure what we will do most likely do our normal thing that we always do at home especially since it's suppose to be cold and snowing.
- I am trying something new for dinner ok not new but new to how I am preparing it. I am making taco's and decided I would put in the crock pot to cook so it will be ready for when Steve gets home.
- Cassie' s therapy will be every 2 weeks, we set a goal of 3-6 months to have her walking. I know she can do it!
- We spent a lot of today outside love this weather......tomorrow it is back to rain and cold maybe snow for the next week.
I think that's about it for now have a great day/evening!!
ok so the spell check is messed up soooooo sorry if I misspelled anything!!!

Music makes me feel alive, when I need to relax I grab the music that means the most to me, Take On Me by Ah Ha, Africa by Toto so many other 80's songs then When the Wind Blows by All American Rejects, From Yesterday by 30 Seconds to Mars and then so many other songs by them, and a few other random songs that just make me relax and feel nostalgic.I also come across some new music because of my sister which is sometimes really great too, Score 24, Amely, Justin Posey etc.
Movies are also something that I can't live without I could go on and on about my favorite movies what they mean to me etc etc. I remember growing up watching oldies with my parents on Sundays. Bad Seed (Little girl who is well a bad seed that does terrible things to people), Blondie a 1930's tv series (The Blondie and Dagwood as in the comic strip). Then we have the 80's movies and even 80's tv that I could never get enough of. Sixteen Candles,Breakfast Club, Mannequin, Danger Mouse, Get Along Gang, She Ra, Jem, Rainbow Bright, Weird Science, American Bandstand so many more. So many movies just so many movies I love I have tons of favorites!!! Here are just a few...
-Bringing Up Baby ,ALL TIME FAVORITE!! Katherine Hepburn , if you haven't seen it rent it! Great movie!! Classic!
-Without a Paddle so many great quotes i can't even tell you how many times I have watched it and it never gets old!
-Sixteen Candles again great quotes and never gets old.
-Clueless sorry it's just on my list it's a great movie I can't help but love it
Oh goodness I could keep on going on and on about movies and music so many other movies I want to list.......
If it wasn't for music and even movies I wouldn't be the person I am today. My girls will grow up with music and movies like I did it's a great way to grow up!

The van is said to cost $3000 or more possibly we only paid $700 after we traded in our car. It's not worth it to us to get it fixed well actually we CAN NOT afford to get it fixed honestly. Not with us living the way we are just not possible. Then again we NEED a reliable vehicle to get Shaylee to and from school and also groceries. Yes Steve has a van it's a 1999 and we don't drive it because it's not a very reliable van he used it just to get from work and back and that's all but then he lost his job in '09 and he didn't drive it much because we had my van which is a 2002. About a year ago something broke on it and Steve fixed it himself but he knew it wasn't going to last so we knew that the day was coming when the van would take a poop on us and not be fixable. that day was today. With having to drive his van who knows how long it will last us. We need a reliable vehicle with kids and Steve starting school in 2 months. We can't afford to fix my van we can't afford to get another used one....... we have no other option than to ask my grandma to help us get a USED van that's reliable for now. We can't just have 1 vehicle with kids especially one that's not reliable enough. I hate the thought of asking for help but we just don't have an option right now. I honestly don't know what we are going to do when his van takes a poop on us who knows how long it will last driving it so much. ...............I know it will work out it always does when stuff happens to us. I pray that it will work out...
Now I just need to talk her into getting me a Nook as well.........=)
Friday night dinners are usually held at my parents currently. That's not how it started though. We never really had family night dinners till my oldest was born she's 4. They would come over to our house every Friday night since it was easier for them to come to us since we had a baby. I would cook for them. As the years went on we would take turns. During the spring and summer we would go over to my parents house and it would be on any day of the week since my mom doesn't work summers. Winter they would come back over to our house usually on Fridays since they work. This past winter they came over to our house alot since it we have more room over at our place. Steve god love him couldn't stand it much longer after about 2 months of them coming over every Friday. Those times I go over to my parents are his free time away from us. As for meals they are all over the place we have simple stuff (hot dogs/hamburgers) to the actual big meal (roast,potatoes,veggie,rolls,salad). During the winter we stay indoors of course the girls playing in the hallway (that's basically the only place they have room to play at my parents. In the summer at my parents we are in the pool or playing in the yard....ok I lie we are ALWAYS in the pool in the summer!! We barely eat when we are in the pool!!
This will all change soon since he will be starting school in May. I have yet to find a part time job in the evenings to make us some extra money while he's in school. Praying he will be able to get a work study job because not that I am lazy but I don't think we as a family can handle him in school and then me working at night while he is home watching the kids and studying! I might be wrong it could work out great. I am scared to find out..... I really shouldn't worry they will always be with one of us. I am just that worry wart kinda person. We will figure it out we always do.....

My mom actually doesn't even read my blog so this won't help.
So I can I say she can spend double what I am asking her to spend on Logan but she can't do that for me????
I have issues with my sister but I won't get into that.......
I dont care about getting older , I have always been ok with growing older...

New words - Please, Thank you, Window,Cookie, Milk, Chicky, Bath, Shoe those are all just the new words she has learned in the last week!!!! She knows about 5-7 more!!
She is standing more and more but still only in her pack n play she refuses to stand on the floor or against the couch. She somewhat cruises around in her pack n play.
She's just really blossomed the last week.

Cassie is 28 pounds and unsure of her height because of they measured her at 30 inches that means she hasn't grown since 12 months which she has and then we forgot to get her remeasured. She is meeting all milestones except the pulling up,standing and walking. At 15 months they should be walking completely. She just started pulling up the day before the appointment and I guess that doesn't count enough so they are sending her to First Steps for therapy.She also had a shot she just didn't like being held down and then she was fine.
Shaylee last year went to a dentist that wouldn't let me go back with her and I wish I owuld have walked out right then because Shaylee went back they asked her something and she started SCREAMING bloody murder and they wouldn't let me go back!!! let's just say we haven't been back.Plus they are insurance fraud! They charged medicaid for xrays when she had NONE done!
I found a great new dentist that allowed me back , they told her step by step what they were doing. She loved it. She had her teeth cleaned, counted (10 and 10) and xrayed. I was sooooo proud of how great she did!!!!

Steve going back to school, getting a job after he goes through school.
Shaylee finishing her first year of preschool.
1 year closer to moving to where we WANT to live.
1 year closer to getting to where we were 2 years ago before Steve lost his job.
This is GOING to be our year to get back the life we once had. No more PA, NO more worrying about can we afford rent next month? It's going to be a better year!
It's also been a year since she has had a paci her "baba" which is great I never thought she would go without it she was so darned attached to it.
She's also slimmed down ALOT she doesn't have that chubby toddler face anymore she's looking more like a little girl that she has became.
I could go on and on about how much I love her that I am blessed to have even had her. She's a miracle. I bled when I was 5 weeks pregnant with her and Iwent in and saw her heart beat!! The nurse was even surprised to see the heart beating! My little strong bug.
She goes back to school for the last half of preschool tomorrow Jan.6. My mom says that the rest of the school year will fly by and it will be summer before we know it.....not sure if I am ready for summer!!
We went shopping all together, all 4 of us which we don't do often which was stressful but nice.
We did plenty of crafts and played with playdoh.
Played Wii (Carnival Games,Family Game Night 1 & 2 and Price is Right)
Went to go see Santa where we go every year t's a drive thru lights display that's freakin awesome! Shaylee loves it and well so do we!
Christmas Eve was low key just the 4 of us.
Christmas my parents,grandma,sister and her boyfriend came over it was nice.
We rented movies and games to play.
We are also getting Steve set up to go to Ivy Tech.
Also been alot of being lazy!! Taking a break from every day stuff to spend time with each other.
Also alot of breakdowns family naps at 3 in the afternoon late dinners and all that other stuff!!
