We had surgey scheduled for the 22nd of december and because there was a large change we would still be in Mesa on christmas I asked if we could be on call if any other kiddos called in sick for surgery! and so of corse the week I called them I shortly got a call back on a wednesday afternoon that they had an opening the next day! so because we had a heathly child we decided to go for it! Surgery went well and shorter than they thought good thing!!! I can only imagine it taking longer then they thought and waiting for word. Because Cardon's hospital was short on patients they put us on the oncology floor and I tried my best to ignore the sick kids!! There was lots of worn out mothers and crying kiddos. I was truly grateful that we was only in the hospital for a little surgery!
By that night she was running and squeeling expicially when she saw kensi! she got so excited. We were able to leave the next day but the doctors wanted us to stay in Mesa if possible incase anything happened. and because of the snow in flag and a wonderful hospitible Aunt Joy we stayed until sunday. we shopped and played almost just like we were there for a visit. so I'm very grateful for an incredible hospital and really left the experience without any bad feelings!!
Posing for christmas card pictures if you didnt get one and want one leave me your address and I will get you one because I have plenty so you dont have to feel left out!!
Right before Avy joined in
love this picture too bad there is the haze over it!!
Such hopeful eyes!
K so now you can refer back to the other picture. This was my summer project well like a year project it is my first quilt and it took a lot more time and money than I ever thought it would. but thanks to my mother helping me quilt it and taking it home to bind I was able to finish to give to my grandma for christmas!! Adn thanks bec for the idea and the many many phone calls to figure out what in the heck I was doing. My grandma has always made all the grandkids a quilt for their wedding and each greatgrand child a afagan and I though I dont know if anyone has ever made her a quilt so I did just that and I will let you know what she thinks after I give it to her for christmas.
Next we had Kensi's birthday and this is pretty much how she spent most of it. we had friends over and one friend gave her a huge pile of hand me down books and of corse instead of paying attention to anything else she just wanted to read that is what whe loves to do. we finally had to take them away so that she would blow out her candles.
Sorry random picture thrown in the middle this is after we were discharged from the hospital and the kids were playing on everything even though avy doesnt look happy she was very excited to leave that place!
Kensi's cake it doesnt look all that fancy but it was sooo good mark made rasberry cream cheese frosting and a twinky cake(well that is what it tasted like anyway) and it was soo good!!
As for everything else Mark is doing good and starting a bigest looser contest with friends in january and I think I'm going to join him We both need to be more disipled on being healthy! but his work is going well and he seems to be busier with his church job then his real job but I guess that is how it goes. AS for me really nothing just doing projects to keep me busy and I'll update pcitures of my lattest!! Kensi is keeping busy and still nice and winey! ha ha her lattest is she brought me a letter A that she had written on a piece of paper and cut out she gave it to me then said here is my letter to santa!! after that we talked about how there are different kinds of letters so now she calls it her note to santa. And Avy finally started nursery and is not sure about it nor is the leader but oh well she has to learn sometime to hangout with someone else for a while. and this sunday mark and I both got to enjoy lessons for once in a while!! well I hope that is an ok update and I'll try to do better next time.
