Hopes Surgery

Hi Everyone.....well i dont have any pics to put up, but i thought it would be easier to put up a quick blog, rather than trying to email everyone. Ok so as some of you may know Hope had her g-tube taken out of her tummy about 2 months ago, well the hole never closed like it was supposed to and so she had a little surgery yesterday to close up the hole. She is doing fine.And she is so excited that her tummy isnt going to leak anymore. She would get so upset when she would eat or drink anything and the moments later her shirt would be wet and covered in what she was eating....chocalate cake or beans or cereal or chicken or whatever.....anyways she is doing really well and we will hopefully go home tonight. She is sitting by me right now asking for icecream so i think she will get over this real fast. Last night she was so bored before she fell asleep and discovered that if she pushed the red nurse button on her bed that the nurse would come in. I of course was letting her do whatever I could to make her happy so i didnt take it from her, and so every few minutes they came in and I played dumb....sometimes shed ask for something but mostly she would just laugh and then push it again a few minutes later. It was really funny to watch. She is being fun and entertaining....well she is being really insititent about getting back to her room for that icecream so i better get going....

Ive decided that its time for my kids to start having
regular chores. I don't recall when this began for me
as a child but the fact is it did start. They have been
helping with the little things for awhile now, its just recent
that at they are doing the bigger things. Its still new enough
that they think it is fun, so I took pics today of what great
kids I really do have!
Madison dusting......"can i spray by myself this time, please mom!"
Hope cleaning the bathroom(except the toilet), "I like cleaning the bathroom, can I do upstairs too!"
Devon vacuuming......"I do it myself Mommy...stop!"he only missed 2 spots this time.....hes a great vacuumer
Fintin just sucking his thumb.......thats enough of a chore for now!
Madison actually dusting.

Putting the laundry basket!
After all that I went to take a shower, when I came down I was sure to find some sorta mess, instead I found Madison making lunch....she did a really great job too.....she made peanut butter and honey, fruit snacks, crackers and marshmallows. it was a very fun day and now we are off to the dollar store(cause Im el cheapo) to reward the hard work.
