the older i get the more and more i realize that i'm a really picky eater. i can't stand certain foods and if something is made with these then i won't even eat any of it at all. take peppers for instance. i hate peppers. all peppers, whether they be bell, chile, or jalapeƱo. i won't eat stuff with these things in them, unless it's store bought salsa. even i don't understand how i can eat it. i also hate certain beans like green, yellow, and lima. these are so gross. i don't even like to sit by people who are eating them, the smell is so terrible.

well, i'm feeling a little better and so are the kids. we've been drinking clear fluids and keeping warm. we are going to derek's parents house this afternoon. we have to wait until after they should be out of church before we can go over there. derek just put on his hawaiian shirt from mom and dad. it looks good on him. they had to go to walmart to find a shirt big enough for him. dad was surprised because with all the polynesians who live there you would think that stores would sell bigger shirts. i mean, polynesians in general are thought of as bigger. anyway, we are doing better today.

the kids and i are sick. we've been having runny noses and scratchy throats. i think that we are going to have to skip church tomorrow. it's too bad because the kids love going to church and especially nursery. we don't want to get all the other kids in nursery sick, too. we slept in until ten this morning when derek called to see if i was up yet. i think the ringer woke the kids up. anyway, we are not feeling good. i'm wondering if i should even go to my in laws tomorrow. well, i think that we won't pass our germs to adults as easily as we would to kids. derek hasn't gotten sick at all. i tell him to just keep washing his hands. that's the best defense against colds, they say.

emmy is cute

earlier today emmy laid two baby dolls in the hallway next to eachother. she left them there and went off and played with other things. hours later andrew and emmy were playing and pretty soon i only heard andrew and he came out and said he couldn't see emmy. i asked him where she was and, of course, started to panic. i was thinking that she must have somehow opened the window and fallen out into the rain and would now develop pneumonia. well, andrew comes and says that he's found her. she was in the hallway asleep next to her dolls that she had lain down hours before. i got some pictures because it was so cute. of course i don't know how to put pictures on here, so you can't see them here. they will probably be on myspace soon, so check there if you are a friend.

nothing much

so we had the funeral yesterday. it was really nice. of course we cried, but by the time we got to the little reception afterwards at the church, we were okay. the only thing left for us to do is get a headstone, which derek's aunts and uncles will pay for. apparently they just told derek this yesterday, so we are very happy that we won't have to wait for that.
on another note, i will try to update more often to appease the mindless banterer. i believe that she may have been referring to me in one of her latest blogs. how can i expect her to have a new blog all the time when i'm not willing to return the favor?
also, check out the links on the side. there is a new funny blog link called seriously so blessed. check it out!

she came

little mary lenore was stillborn on tuesday evening. we knew that she would be gone before we got to the hospital. earlier that day we found out that there was no heart beat while we were at the doctor's office in the morning. we are very sad, but dealing with our loss very well. there doesn't seem to be any reason for this happening except that she just decided that since she didn't have to experience earthly life that she would just get a body and work in heaven and wait for the rest of us to come to her. she looked a lot like emmy when she was a baby and was very petite like emmy had been. she was 5lbs and 14ozs and 19 ½ " long. she had blond hair and dark blue eyes. just to let everybody know, it's okay to call us or whatever. we are okay talking about it.
