A Trip to the Dentist

The kids had a dentist appointment on Tuesday. Kari and Malachi love going to the dentist. Mostly because it's got to be the coolest dentist office EVER (a computer room, ocean scenes on the walls, and several other trendy technology thingies) and the girls there absolutely spoil the kids rotten. We kinda spoil them too when we have early morning appointments. We bring them donuts frequently. :)

These girls visited Kari when she was first diagnosed and brought her an iPod and an iTunes gift card. They're awesome!

If you girls from the dentist are reading this, we LOVE each and every one of you! Thanks for being so awesome!

So...Kari has been saying weird things lately. I'm thinking it's due to the fact that so many people we know have died recently and the majority of them died from cancer. She's been talking about death and going to heaven a lot. Just now she came in here holding her Baby Alive doll and said, "When I die, I want to die holding this baby and it's blanket."
I asked her why in the world she would say that. She said, "If I get real sick and have to die is what I mean, Mommy."

Seriously??? Oh. My. Word. What do you say to that? I know that Kari is in God's hands but, as a mommy, sometimes that's the hardest place to leave them. Just because God is good doesn't always mean that it's easy to trust Him and trace what He's doing. In fact, I don't think it's ever easy to trace Him. This past year is a complete mystery to me. Sometimes I try to figure it out but it's more than my small brain can handle. :)

So, on a different note...Macey, Kyndall, and Chrissy came over for supper tonight! As always, we had a great time! Last week we met them for lunch at Reno's. We love these 3 girls!

As always, thank you for your prayers and support! We love you!


  1. I so wish you lived closer to me. We'd get together and let our kids play all the time. This post makes me miss you guys :(

    And how in the world do you take 2 kids to the dentist without them freaking out?! i so need to take TL and I haven't yet. I dread it. It's kind of easy to put off right now because we don't have a pediatric dentist on our insurance and the one me and Tim go to wont take him until he's 5. I know a trip is coming soon though.

  2. I LOVE the pics!!!!! They sre soooo good!!!!!

  3. Love the pictures and Kari's purple headband!!

  4. The Picture's are really good. However I've always been a big fan of real life and whats happening in it. Like the photos you have put on this post. They are really beautiful and show life at its best.

    I had someone in my life that talked about death alot, That is really hard to handle. God wil help you through what ever He has in His plans. God Bless you and Your seet babies.


  5. Great pics! :) Love and prayers, Lacey Smith
