Future models trying on hats:



Here are a few of the many failed attempts to take a decent picture with Nana on Christmas day:


And here’s one from our house:  

Bonus: Rose fell asleep on the floor at church this morning! 

And here are the younger sibling and their Christmas presents:
Eli and his robot (that really shoots!)
Rose and her baby (that really pees!)
And Abe and his recorder (that really plays! Very loudly! Unceasingly! )

Samuel got a real bow and a couple arrows for Christmas this year. Both the videos at the bottom are in slow motion – be sure to watch the second one all the way through until he turns around… 



Since it’s Christmas, here are a few more pictures: 

   Dr. Rose administering a healing kiss. 

 Abe’s “wake up scars”.
   Rose showing off her kitty shirt. 

 And her princess crown. 
   Caught in a moment of glee while playing with the boys in the yard. 

 Sam and Eli with some classmates showing off their advent trees. 

Here are some glimpses of the Evanses over the past few weeks:
  Rosie’s sense of style continues to develop (her friend Nora looks concerned…).
 She also likes helping the Queen cook (note the knife).
  Dad found the perfect Christmas tree again!
 Abe and Rose looking cute together.
  Eli has been working hard in his math skills. Here he is lurking around after successfully counting to 1,000.


 Charlie and Jorge (a friend from church) demonstrating proper execution of “dad-style”.
 The Queen and the princess taking a nap. Boys can be exhausting.


***Fixed. Something was wrong with the pictures, sorry. ***

We’ve been doing a lot of working  lately, but also a lot of playing and resting too (although some of us are getting more rest than others). Here are some highlights.

Schoolwork at the table

Working together in the kitchen

Sam and Abe using the whiteboard

Sam and Eli making cookies

Taking a break for some silliness

Rosie with her hammer

Eli and Abe taking out a stump (with a hatchet!)

Making bows and arrows

Taking a break for frozen yogurt

working hard on robots

Abe after falling asleep during family worship (ignore the peeling paint on the wall…)

Rose pretending to be asleep at the dentist office

and actually asleep in the car

 Here are some glimpses of Rosie’s super-fun life right now: 

About to go for a walk with mom, dressed in an outfit of her choosing
  At Lowes, pretending to use the toilet seats hanging on the wall 
Eating smores 
 Holding the sword Nana keeps in her umbrella stand

Here’s the crew about to go trick-or-treat. The ninja, Hawkeye, the clown and the Roman (Sam is into Roman history right now):

  Here’s a close up of Haweye and the clown.
And here’s Hawkeye’s hair the next morning. Ready for church!

We’ve been up to more than yard work this week…   Rosie the clown.
 And Dad the clown too! Plus Hawkeye and the ninja again. 
   The Hawkeye costume is 90% attitude. 
 Princess Elsa making apple scones. 
 And getting her beauty rest (in the most bizarre sleeping posture we’ve ever seen. Honestly, we just found her that way!)
