The Rozeski family...hard to get us all looking at the camera at the same time, this was the last of about 80 pictures. You can tell by the look on Elijah's & Alex's face. We finally got it and it's good enough. Because this blog is my family history I'm going to name everyone in order from left to right, top to bottom (you can skip this is you're not interested :0)
Alex M., Kendra M., Marty R., Ed R., Jason R., Jaxen R., Melissa R., Madeline R., Dave M., Lydia M., Sonya A., Nathan A., Nichole A., Simone A., Elijah R.
Even though the holidays are over we're still trying to keep our lives busy so we don't get bored being stuck inside during the cold weather. Alex is finally invited Lydia to play with him...this is their boat. And we have Alex in swimming lessons now...sooooo funny! He listens to the teacher, but doesn't exactly do what she says. I'll get pictures of that eventually too.
Merry Christmas!!! Papa Gary got to dress up as Santa for a ward Christmas party....Alex still was scared, he didn't recognize him at all. But I think you can see Gary's proud smile even underneath all the itchy polyester!
My mom is famous for her gingerbread houses. They're homemade gingerbread, sticky frosting and tons of candy. Alex looks like he's concentrating, but this is his new "I don't care if you think I'm cute" look :)
The adults usually do most of the work on these things, but kids love them because of the CANDY!!! This was always the picture with the Arp family...Nathan working, Nikki probably talking to me :), and Sonya eating candy.
They turned out great in the end, if you notice we even have Neecos as the shingles for the roof....I was fairly intense during this, it has to be exactly like I remembered. But we ended smiling, so that's good!
