A toothless tiger

On March 11, Kelvin lost a tooth for the first time, just before breakfast. Luckily, the next thing he had to eat was a banana with peanut butter, not celery or carrots! Here’s his new smile. The chipped top tooth is from Nigeria; the bottom front tooth is the missing one.Kelvin lost his first tooth

Super Duper Delicious Cheesy Omelet for Kids

Filed under: Photos — rich @ 8:47 am

On the morning of January 26, 2008, Rich and the kids woke up early, and Rich cooked the boys’ favorite breakfast, “Super Duper Delicious Cheesy Omelet for Kids.” Sorry, the recipe is a closely-guarded secret! All three kids helped mix the eggs and spices, and Rich cooked the omelet. Kristof and Kelvin each took half, while Carmen stuck with bacon only. The omelet was so perfectly cooked that it served as a perfect canvas for ketchup art.

Kristof got his hash name of “Bigfoot” on his omelet.

Bigfoot immortalized in ketchup

Kelvin got his hash name of “Mad Dog.”

It's a dog. No, really!

Carmen decided to have her bacon without ketchup. Luckily for the ketchup artist, because Carmen’s hash name is “Ratatouille.”

Ratatouille wouldn't even fit here!

Carmen introduces herself

Filed under: Photos — rich @ 9:23 am

We’re trying something new, posting a YouTube video for the first time. Carmen, age 2-1/2, is introducing herself on December 4, 2007, while the family is decorating the Christmas tree (hence the Santa hat). If the clip had subtitles, they’d say, “It’s me, Carmen Lily Roesing. Wait, I want to see!” Click on the Play button to start the video.

Hashing on Canadian Thanksgiving 2008

Filed under: Photos — rich @ 7:14 am

We’re avid members of the Calgary Hash House Harriers, a drinking club with a running problem. The Calgary hash runs every Monday, year-round. In Canada, Thanksgiving is the second Monday in October, so we went to the Thanksgiving hash in northwest Calgary. It was an afternoon hash, so we brought the kids, who worked their way into a few photos that are now on the Calgary hash web site. Here’s a sample of the photos. If you find yourself in Calgary on a Monday, come out and join us at the hash!

Kelvin’s hash name is “Mad Dog.” Here’s how he got his name:

Read forward, not backward!

Respectfully submitted,
