Kirsten went to the dentist on Monday. She had a cavity between her two back teeth on the top. I guess that is what she gets for refusing to let me floss her teeth for the past month. So we had to get it filled this morning. She did great! She just sat there with her mouth open, no flinching, fighting, anything! They were done in 20 minutes and we were on our way. It is funny watching her now with a numb mouth, especially now that it is starting to wear off just a little. So here is an adorable picture of her smiling with half a numb mouth!

The Understanding of a Child

So last night our ward was split. That may sound like jibberish to some of you, so let me briefly explain. Our Church divides all of its members into small congregations called "wards" based on where you live. When a ward gets too big, they split it and make another one. Well ours was getting huge, so Sunday, they split us and created the Frisco 7th Ward.

We have been trying to explain to Kirsten this week what was going to happen. We told her they were going to split the ward, and she just stared at us. So we explained to her that the church had gotten too big and so they were going to split it in half.

Sunday night, after the meeting finished and the ward was split, this was our conversation.

Kirsten : "Mommy, are they going to slice the church now?
Mommy: "What?"
Kirsten: "Are they going to slice the church in half now? Do we get to watch? Are they going to use a knife? Where are they going to split it at? I hope we get to keep the Primary room in our half."

I guess we did not do as good a job at explaining as we thought we did!

The drapes are finally finished and hung! I am still not sure what posessed me to tear down the swags and replace them with hand-made, floor-length, lined drapes. I am so happy with how they turned out though. That is one more thing checked off of my to-do list before baby comes.
