Merry Christmas 2013!!!

We wish you a Merry Christmas and a Happy New Year!!!

We had enough snow to build a snowman and a snow fort!!

Our kitten, Georgia, became the perfect Christmas Kitty.

Elijah and Brooke selfies at the University of Evansville Purple Aces basketball game.

What mornings often look like at our house.

It's hard to take good pictures of Elijah because he has super light sensitive eyes, but here's a decent one with his Snap Circuits set.

Leah and Georgia watch TV.

Hannah was dressed in her "Driver" costume for the play "The Case of the Missing Paragraph" performed by the homeschool co-op stage skills class.

New School Room in Action!

Now imagine those black folding chairs are white IKEA chairs :)  Oh, and the lighting was better... these are way off, color wise.  Still we are loving the "new" room!

I did not get the kids matching Easter outfits this year, and I have to work.. Hopefully, it will be fun and meaningful anyway. We will read our Resurrection eggs book tomorrow, and the kids will go to church with friends.

Leah and Pete have the flu. They are beyond miserable!! I feel bad that I didn't get the girls flu shots (Elijah and I did), but I'm generally not on the vaccine band wagon.
Hannah hasn't gotten sick, but she has had a lot of headaches recently. I'm not sure if they are hormonal, weather related, or what.
I'm hopeful that Leah might get back to school on Thursday... I guess we'll see.

A busy week!

I started working a bit a few months ago, and this is one of those weeks that's a little bit crazy. Hannah started attending a Catholic school and is really enjoying it. The house is so quiet during the day that I don't mind working a couple of days a week.

New Juicer

I got a juicer for Christmas and I decided to try it out today. To be healthier I decided to make a mostly vegetable juice for my first go. I went to The Fresh Market and got organic produce: kale, beet, carrots, ginger, cucumber, and apple. It was okay, but I'm really a fruit juice kind of girl!!

Basketball and cheerleading

Elijah had his first basketball game yesterday and Hannah cheered at her first game as well. They are both Upwards teams and the kids are really enjoying it. Leah is old enough to cheer, but I wasn't convinced she'd actually do it. Maybe next year of she's interested.

Mobile blogging

I'm wanting to see if mobile blogging might work for me.

Merry Christmas 2012!!

I'm feeling much too cheap to buy Christmas cards at .80 cents a piece and then mailing them for .45 cents each... I just. can't. do. it.

I took the pictures (though the lighting isn't great and Leah refused to smile) and thought I might come around to wanting to spend $125 on cards, but I don't think that is going to happen.

Merry Christmas anyway!!!

The Rosen progeny!!

Hannah, age 10, 4th grade

Elijah, age 7, 2nd grade

Leah, age 5, kindergarten

Since it isn't going to cost my any extra, I'm going to throw in a few Disney World photos as well.




We hope you have a Very Merry Christmas and a Happy New Year!!

Sonlight Box Day 2012

I'll be homeschooling Hannah next year, and our Sonlight books arrived today!!






Hannah was very impressed that the box had a castle printed on the inside!

Look at all those books!!!



We can't wait to get started! We will start spelling and math as soon as school is out...
