So yet again...it has been forever since I posted...Well anyways Christmas was very nice and relaxing for us...we got a bunch of snow and we played in it, it our new backyard and it was so much fun to have nice quality family time. We also went to my grandpa's on Christmas Eve and then on Christmas morning...our little family stayed home and opened presents from Santa (with the economy Santa got less presents than normal, but it was Chloe's favorite Christmas ever) and then in the evening we went to my parents to open presents and have dinner. So it was fun and filled with family, but yet we spent alot of quality time in between. Then on December 30 (my mom's birthday) I had umbilical hernia surgery. I needed it because of my pregnancies...it happened from being pregnant. All of a sudden a few months ago, I noticed my belly button still stuck out...I thought that that was not normal and went to the doc...cause I had a feeling and sure enough. It did not bother me at all...I had no pain from it. The doc wanted me to have surgery anyways, more for preventative...it can get worse with subsoquent pregnancies. So my parents already got tickets to take Chloe to the Beauty and the Beast play...so my inlaws came and watched Ella. The surgery itself went REALLY well. I was really nervous that I would puke and or get really dizzy and sick...but I did NOT at all!! Which was a huge blessing, cause it has happened before and that is the worse part! So I came home and slept for like 6 hours then watched a movie with Dan and my in laws and the next few days were a blur...and then I did not need the pain pills anymore...but I still felt uncomfortable for about a week and now finally I am feeling better...thank you Jesus. I was really getting frustrated because I wanted to get back to normal. I could not clean or anything...which most would think was amazing...but I am sort of a clean freak...and I did not like it!!! Well since I started working...this surgery has been a VACATION...I have loved spending time with the girls and I also have been really sad that I do have to work. I really love staying home and I know I will not have to work forever...but it is still hard! This is not to make anyone feel bad or guilty...some moms love to work others have to do it to live...which is what I have to do...but it still is hard! Ella is doing so much new stuff everyday and she still is not at the crabby, tantrum throwing age yet...so it is alot of fun! Chloe is becoming such an adult person. She has her best friend from school, named Kayla and they both got each other presents for Christmas...it was really cute to see such a great bond. Chloe has such a HUGE heart, and I am so thankful for that. What more could you ask for? She always is thinking about other people. Well we had a good holidays, now back to the daily!!
