I wanna be like my kids when I grow up...

Alex is now a blinker during photos... so this is the best we got :)
He has finally lost his two front teeth! I was hoping for this about a month ago so he could sing the Christmas song "all I want for Christmas is my two front teeth", but I didn't have the courage to pull them out too early.

Dave said I should make a post about all the unusual things that make me proud about my kids. So, here we go...

1. Lydia will eat asparagus like it's candy. I, however, still have the stalks (minus the tips) on my plate. I don't think I'll ever enjoy asparagus.

2. Alex is very interested in non-fiction books. The nail bitters we've read recently? Animals heads & necks, Electricity, the sun, Krakatau, the Buffalo Bills from 1970-1989, and the cliff hanger Rice

3. Lydia is in gymnastics and is really good! I'm surprised because this is NOT a Rozeski trait. I have to stop myself from clapping and gasping with awe as I watch her. Then I go home and try to imitate what she did... and I can't. Pretty soon I'm going to hurt myself!

4. Alex has some quirky science facts memorized... like how starfish spit our their stomachs to each their food. I usually don't believe him until his teacher tells me that he's right.

That's all I have for now. I love these kids, they teach me a lot. Hopefully I'm teaching them something too :)

Happy New Year!

For New Year's eve our power went out... for over 12 hours. Because it was cold outside we decided to all sleep in the family room with our little space heat (you see it on the far left). It runs on propane.
The kids thought it was awesome, and are pretty sure it's our new tradition for New Year's Eve :) Although I think they'd like some electricity (namely movies).
Dave and I also celebrated our 9th anniversary. Well, we didn't exactly celebrate, but it happened. We'll be celebrating it this month (December got too busy for us!). I can't believe it's been 9 years since we were married, I also can't believe that I'm 31. Time flies!
