Successfully Completed 1st Grade!

t d zooWe are proud to announce that Dorina and Tibi Rosetta successfully completed their first year in School!!  They both completed 1st grade with all As and Bs for the entire school year!  They both made the A/B Honor Roll for the year.  Dorina also received a certificate for the Most Improved Student!  We are so proud of our precious ones!

This has been an exciting and amazing year!  We have watched the children grow in so many ways!  We thank God daily for the wonderful and amazing things He has done in our children and in our family.  They have improved in all of their education skills as well as their social skills.  They write amazing sentences and have vocabulary that is amazing!  No one can believe that they have only been speaking English for about a year and a half.  They are so creative and they still love life and are so full of happiness and joy!  They have always been such happy and grateful children!  They love Jesus and worship Him, talk to Him, and walk with Him every day!  Our hearts are full as we begin a wonderful summer together!

d awardDorina started the year with many fears and she struggled with reading – but she has worked hard and grown so much.  At the beginning of the year, someone had to hold the door for her quick escape from the bathroom as she was afraid of the toilet sound.  She was afraid of all things that fly or crawl on the ground (spiders, bugs, etc).  She didn’t want to do her homework or try her best or sit and listen.  Now – I write this with tears of joy and pride – she toddles off to the bathroom all by herself without a care.  She kills her own spiders and bugs!  She is so independant!  She reads 1st grade books all by herself and writes sentences to express her thoughts about the book.  She is amazing!  She had a wonderful teacher who encouraged her progress, guided her, and helped her express her creativity.  Her teacher came to me with tears in her eyes to tell me how proud she was of the progress that Dorina made this year!  Dorina’s reading level started at a 0.3 and she progressed two grade levels by the end of the year.

t honorsTibi started the year with a love of reading and a love of being a follower of others.  His teacher helped guide him in his eagerness to learn.  We talked to him and guided him in being a leader and following Jesus and no one else.  Tibi struggled more in Math and we worked with real life objects and examples in the car on the way home each day to help him understand and excel in Math.  He worked on learning to think before he acted and to be an example for others to follow.  Last night, Tibi sat on the bed and read a 2nd grade level Arthur book to us with great expression!  He also wrote a paragraph about the problem, solution, and his favorite part of the book!  I write this with tears of joy in my eyes as I think of his progress this year!  We are so proud!

We are planning a summer full of activities!  We already went to the library and checked out books to read and write about.  We are planning to play store to help practice our counting money skills.  We are practicing our math facts daily.  We each plan to put together a scrapbook of our favorite memories from the last year and write about our experiences.  Yesterday, we played in the water in the yard and Dorina rode her bike without training wheels!  We are so thankful for each moment that God has given us as a Forever Family!

This year has been full of fun and adventure.  Daddy is still working hard at our wonderful restaurant, Tib-A-Dor’s Station.  You can check out our website tibador’s station.com or our facebook page or our Google+ page.  The kids have been helping Daddy at Tib-A-Dor’s Station and will be helping some this summer.  They love to go with Daddy and work!  We are so blessed!  We thank God for the wonderful things that he keeps doing every day in our lives!  Thank you Jesus!

 

Life as a Family

We have been busy being Restaurant owners this year!  Tib-A-Dor’s Station is doing great!  We are so proud of Daddy and the great job he is doing!  We enjoy going there to eat the great food!  We were blessed with a wonderful article done by the Dothan Eagle that gave us a rave review of Tib-A-Dor’s (check out the review) !!!  Thank you God!  We have a great staff and we are very thankful for all God has done for us.

The kids continue to work hard at school.  They have great teachers and they really enjoy school.  They are learning to make good choices and how to seek God in making choices.  We are so proud of their progress!  Tibi really enjoys reading!  Dorina has finally learned that reading is fun!  They are both wonderful helpers at school and at home.  They take care of their own rooms and help out around the house.  Dorina is learning to cook from Mommy!!  Oh My!  Yes, I said from Mommy!  Daddy is busy at the restaurant so Mommy is teaching Dorina how to help in the kitchen.  Hopefully this summer Daddy can really teach Dorina how to cook.  You’d be surprised how much Mommy has learned about cooking since she married Daddy!!!  🙂

We were able to get away for a few days in March and see the sights of Atlanta.  We had a great time!  Tibi was our official packer as we prepared for our trip!  He is an excellent packer!  He remembered to pack all of the important items and he folds everything very neatly!  Tibi loves to help out whenever he can.

We had so much fun in Atlanta.  We bought the city pass, which is well worth its value!  The kids really enjoy learning and seeing new things.  We spent one day at the zoo and had a blast!  Tibi enjoyed learning about habitats and carnivores!  Dorina enjoyed watching the baby panda bears!  We went to the Natural History Museum and the kids really enjoyed all of the hands on activities there!  We also watched an IMAX movie which was great!  At the Aquarium, the children were in awe.  Their favorite part of the day was the Dolphin show.  That was included in our city pass too.  It was awesome!   Dolphins are one of our favorite animals!  It was so much fun to learn and explore for a few days in Atlanta.  The kids loved every minute of it!  It was a blessing to get away for a few days and spend some family time together.

We enjoy just being a family.  Everything is more fun and enjoyable when we do it together!  Thank you Father God for our wonderful family!

Our First Christmas

christmas cardwhisperingWe had the best Christmas ever this year!  The kids started asking about Christmas just after Thanksgiving.  We started our celebration off by decorating the Christmas tree and the house for Christmas.  The kids were wonderful helpers and enjoyed every minute of it!  Daddy helped with as much as he could before he was off to work on Tibador’s Station.  The kids and I had fun getting everything ready before Daddy came home that day and surprising him!

lightsWe put up our wonderful 7 foot tree and decorated it with the ornaments that we collected over the years.  We had some beautiful new ornaments to add from our time in Hungary and from our first family vacation in Georgia.  Then we put up small trees in each of the kids rooms.

Tibi chose blue and green and gold to decorate his tree.  Dorina chose pink and purple and silver.  Before we left for Hungary, we had cleaned out a storage unit of Daddy’s old things and had found some wonderful ornaments and tree skirts to put on the kids trees.  We listened to Christmas music and decorated!  Then we got pizza and watched a Christmas movie!  I had so much fun watching my favorite Christmas movies with the kids!  Daddy joined us for as many as he could.  The Santa Clause 1,2,3 and Santa Clause is Coming to Town were the kids favorites!

reading night before christmas

We read Christmas stories and of course spent most of the time talking about Baby Jesus and his mother Mary and his adopted father Joseph.  The kids love that story.  On December 6th, we celebrated the Hungarian Mikulas Day – it is the Hungarian version of St Nickolas or Santa Clause.  The children put their boots by the window and the boots are filled with candy.  We didn’t put boots out by the window, but Mikulas found the kids and left them a little bag of treats and a note.  The kids were so excited and still talk about their Mikulas gift.

tibis cookie

We have tried to incorporate all of our heritages into our family.  Tony is Italian, Cary is German, and the kids  are Hungarian.  We made waffles and white sauce over the holidays – a German breakfast treat.  We also made peppernuts or Pfeffernusse, a German Christmas cookie.  We made American Christmas sugar cookies too.  Then for New Years, we made Hungarian Honey Cookies!  The kids had so much fun baking and working with Mommy in the kitchen.  Daddy was at Tibador’s during most of the baking – but he was home to enjoy eating the treats with us 🙂

tibi mater

We had so much fun shopping for the kids for Christmas.  We kept it simple but wonderful!  The kids each made a list of three things that they wanted for Christmas and we chose one of those items to give them as their big gift.  We also picked up some wonderful small things and some things to fill their stockings.

sugar cookies

Dorina got a beautiful pink star necklace and Tibi got a Tow Mater remote control truck.  They also got books and their very own readable Bibles!  They loved every minute of it and so did we!

dorina reading bibleEach day was a special moment and memory.  God gave us three wonderful gifts – His son Jesus and our precious children – to celebrate this Christmas of 2013!  This has been the best year ever!

The Big Move

ds room 2

ts roomWe are proud to announce that the kids were finally ready to be separated.  Neither of them had ever had a room by themselves and Tibi had never even slept in his own bed when we met them in January of this year.  This weekend, we moved them into their very own rooms.  Father God had been inching them toward this independance for a while.  Dorina was the one who seemed the most afraid of being by herself so we had not pushed the issue with them.  tx room 2Father God gave us a three day weekend and amazing ideas for storage and rearranging….and ta da – the kids each have their own room.  Not a tear has been shed as we have tucked them into their beds in their new rooms.  In fact, they are very excited!  They love it and were ready for this transition!

Ds room

We are so proud of them!  We know that it was the best thing to wait until they were ready.  All in God’s timing!  It was a smooth transition.  It means that they are growing up before our eyes!
Every day is a joy to have our precious daughter and son!  We marvel at them every day!  They are filled with so much love and it doesn’t seem possible but we love them more each day!  Here are a few pictures.  It is a work in progress but the rooms are looking very cute already!

tx room
In funny news – yesterday while shopping for things for their new rooms, Tibi said we were “looking for eye balls.”

ds room 3

Actually we were looking for light bulbs!  They are still so cute as they learn new words or try to repeat what they hear 🙂  Each day is filled with laughter and fun!

They were big helpers in moving furniture and cleaning out closets and rooms!  Dorina and Tibi are always ready to lend a hand.  They even rubbed Mommy’s shoulders when she had a headache while working on the project!  Thank You Father God for an awesome forever family!

Daddy burgerDaddy is working on a new project!  It is big news!  Daddy is opening a restaurant!  He named it Tib-A-Dor’s Station!  It is named it after Tibi and Dorina!!!!  How awesome!  God has so blessed us as Daddy has been working on this adventure for….. a long time!  The kids and Mommy are so proud and excited!  Tib-A-Dor’s will be a Barbecue, Burgers and More restaurant in Dothan, Alabama.  The decor is amazing!  He is decorating this once upon a time gas station, as an old time gas station!  It is amazing!  It is coming very soon!

First Days of School

schoolSchool has begun!  Wow!  This has been quite a year already!  I started teaching 2nd grade again after 7 years as a 3rd grade teacher.  And for the first time – we are parents of 1st graders!  What a wonderful change!  We always dreamed of this and are so grateful every day for our amazing children!

We were just thinking yesterday about the first week that we met our children – they didn’t know any English, they could only write a few letters in their names, they ran around and pouted like toddlers.  Today, they walk triumphantly to their places in the hallway for 1st grade every day.  This week, they both completed math fact work, spelling work, reading passages, and writing all by themselves.  We are so proud of them and we stand in awe of God every day as we watch how He blesses our children and helps them to grow!

We have had some wonderful compliments about our children this week.  Someone said they are the happiest children in school!  They love school and they get excited about every aspect of it!  They try very hard and are truly grateful to go to school and to learn.  They love their teachers and look forward to school each day.  Dorina hops out of bed every morning and can’t wait to get to school.  Their teachers have told us that they are working very hard and are learning very quickly.  Their English vocabulary is amazing!  The adjustments that they have made in the last few months are astounding.  They are polite and helpful at school too.  We couldn’t be more proud of our precious children.  We have had a wonderful first two weeks of school!

It is a new experience for us to get up so early and travel to school together each morning – but what a joy to go to school all together.  Daddy packs our lunches, fixes our breakfast, and has dinner ready for us when we get home!  Daddy is amazing!  Thank you Daddy for taking such good care of us!  The kids are great little helpers when I get to school in the morning and after school.  They help Mommy get her classroom ready for the next day.  We work on homework and study sight words and spelling.  It is a very busy day and sometimes long but we enjoy being a family.

We can hardly believe that just 7 months ago – we met the children for the first time.  It feels like we have always been a family.  There is so much love and joy in our home!  Our children are so helpful and kind.  We love to read God’s word together and pray together as a family after dinner.  Our children are praying for all of the children who are in the process of being adopted or who need a family to love them.  Our children pray for those who have been adopted as they transition.  Our children are grateful for all that God has given to them.  We thank God for the love and joy that we feel every day.  Thank you God for a great start to a great year!

Tibi’s Birthday!

We can’t believe that we have been a Forever Family for 6 months now!   We thank God every day for our family!  Every day is a new adventure and filled with so much joy!  We have been so blessed to celebrate all four of our birthdays together this year!  Each one has been very special and filled with wonderful memories!

tibi and partyTibi had been waiting in expectation of his birthday for months.  I think from the day after Dorina’s party 🙂  He talked about it on a regular basis.  We asked each of the children to pick 3 gifts that they would like for their birthday, and then we choose one to give them.  We let him pick a cake theme – which changed on a regular basis!  We have been showing the children Disney movies – as Daddy and Mommy have always been big Disney fans!  When we tell the kids that we love them, I started saying “I love you to infinity and beyond.”  We explained to the kids where that phrase came from and we purchased the movie to show them.  So when we were looking at cake ideas, we saw Toy Story and Tibi said he wanted a Toy Story cake and to watch the movie for his birthday!  What a great idea!

tibi candlesTibi went with Daddy on the morning of his birthday so Mommy and Dorina could get everything ready for him.  We got the cake, cleaned, and set everything up.  Tibi had wanted flowers – our sweet little boy  – so we picked some flowers from the front yard and made up a sweet little arrangement for him.  We got him a Mickey Mouse balloon and had everything ready for him.

Tibi was so excited all day long and talked about his birthday!  He told everyone!  When he got home, we made him close his eyes and walked him into the dining room.  When he opened his eyes he said “Ohhhhhh.”   He was so happy with everything.  We opened presents first.  Dorina had used her own money to buy Tibi a special present from the Dollar Tree.   tibi guitarThe children are so sweet and loving toward each other!  We are so proud of them.   He opened Dorina’s gift first and was very happy.  She had picked out a little store register drawer with play money in it.  Then it was time for his big present.  He was pretty sure he knew what it was and he was right.  He wanted a guitar and we got him a kid size guitar.  He was so excited!  I also purchased a beginners guitar book for him with a CD and DVD and I am planning to teach myself and Tibi how to play guitar.  I have always wanted to learn too.  We are both very excited.  Dorina wants Tibi to play for her so she can sing.  We are such a musical family!  We all love to sing praises to Jesus!!!!

After presents it was time to dig into the beautiful cake!  Tibi was so excited!  He had so much fun eating it and he was very happy about the toys that he would get off the top of the cake.  It was so cute to watch him blow out the Number Six candle.  It took many tries and was so much fun!

DSCN4521

DSCN4524We sat down to watch Toy Story after cake.  The kids both really enjoyed it.  In fact, Tibi literally sat on the edge of his seat for the entire movie.  I tried to get him to set back on the couch with me, but he was riveted to the movie!  He had his Toy Story characters from the cake in his hands and would do the same movements with them as the movie.  He giggled and was intense on the movie!  It was so special!

tibi goulashThe last item of the party was the one Daddy had been working on for weeks.  Tibi had requested a traditional Hungarian meal for his birthday – Gulyás (Goulash).   Daddy had researched, asked a friend of ours who lives in Hungary, and spent hours looking over recipes.  Tibi had requested that it not be as spicy as it had been when he ate it in Hungary.  Tibi also wanted bread and butter with it so he could dip the bread in his soup.  Daddy did a wonderful job!  It was delicious and Tibi was so happy!  Tibi said it tasted just like Hungary but without the spicy.  Good job Daddy!  It was a wonderful meal!

tibi with flowersTibi said he had a wonderful birthday!  We thank God that we have been able to celebrate both of their birthdays this year with them!  We are so proud of them!  They are amazing children!  They are ready and excited about going to school in August!  They have learned so much!  People can’t believe how good their English is and we get compliments on their behavior all of the time!  Our favorite time is still devotions and prayer time.  We sit at the table now right after supper.  We read the Bible together, recite verses, and have family prayer time.  It is the most wonderful and special time of all!  We start with worship, then we ask God for our requests, we ask for His forgiveness and tell Him how much we love Him.  Then we pause and listen to His voice.  We are always amazed at what the children share that God is telling them.  It is so sweet and insightful!  At the end, we spend time in thankfulness to God.  God has given our children such sweet and tender spirits!  We are forever grateful for our Forever Family!!!!

A Week of Firsts

We went on our first family vacation!  This vacation was filled with things that the kids had never done and things we had never done as a family!  It was so much fun!!!

We went to Savannah, Georgia.  We filled the kids bags with lots of fun things to do in the car and filled the back of the Santa Fa full to the top of stuff and set out on our way!  We had a lovely room at the Oglathorpe Inn and Suites.  It had lots of room for us and a really good price!  We are blessed!  The staff was so nice in helping us get set up with extra blankets and sheets too!

first trolleyThe next morning, we ate breakfast in the lovely atrium at the hotel and set off to catch the Old Town Trolley!  The kids were so excited about it!  We had a blast.  We got off the trolley to eat lunch and then to get some Gelatooooh!  When it started to get hot, we went back to the car and back to the hotel for swimming!

DSCN4214Our kids have become water babies!  They love to swim and get braver and better every time they get in the water!  Dorina got so brave, she was jumping in and swimming in the shallow end without her floaties!  It was so great!  She is really get good.  She also dives down to the bottom to retrieve a little sinking squid toy we got for them.  Tibi made great progress.  He is a great swimmer with his floaties.  He is still gaining confidence in going under the water, but he does do it now and he “hopped” in a few times too.  His hop is truly a hop and he barely gets water on his face 🙂  They have made such wonderful progress in the three different times we have been at pools.

The next day we were off again to the Trolley.  This time we planned to get off several times and also to eat our lunch in the famous Forsythe Park.  We had fun getting off, taking pictures, and seeing the sites.  It was a warm day, but we had fun.  One fun thing we did this day was suggested by a girl at Publix.  We rode the free ferry boat to Hutchinson Island and checked out the Big Hotel and Spa there.  Tibi loved the boat ride!  On the way back across the boat made two stops!  It was even air conditioned!  It was a great fun free activity!  Thanks God!  Publix is daddy’s favorite store!

DSCN4125We had the greatest meals while we were there!  We ate at The Lunchbox with Chef Tony Rosetta!!!!  Tony brought a little grill and a plastic bowl.  He is a master chef, because from these items, he was able to make hamburger steak with gravy and baked potatoes.  He also made ravioli with sauce and salad.  One night he made Tortellini and sauce.  He also made pork chops and mashed potatoes for one meal!  Talk about the Macgyver of the kitchen – that’s Daddy!  It was delicious!

DSCN4160The next day we met some dear friends of ours.  We met them a few years ago on a cruise and they adopted us as their kids.  They supported our adoption and where so excited to meet the children!  We had lunch with them and the children loved them!  Then we went to play some games and ride the go carts!  The kids really enjoyed the go carts.  We wanted to do miniture golf but it was just too hot when we were there.  It was a great time of fellowship!

Dad and kids TybeeWe also made a visit to Tybee Island while we were there.  We went in the morning and saw the lighthouse, but it was too hot to climb it.  We also went over to the beach.  This was the first time the kids had seen the ocean!  They loved the shells scattered along the beach and they started hunting for good ones right away.  Then we went to the water!  They loved it!  They are Mommy’s kids!  Mommy loves the beach!  horseshoe crabWe got to see a horseshoe crab while we were walking along the beach.  Tibi was intrigued.  After a walk along the beach, we rinsed off our feet and headed for lunch!  Pizza!  Gelato!

It was a warm afternoon so we headed to the hotel for a while.  Around 4PM,  we suited up, grabbed a good sandwich, and went to the pier on Tybee Island.  That is when we realized just how much the kids liked the ocean!  It was a perfect evening with a breeze and clouds and even a rainbow!!!  The kids loved the waves, the sand, and the surf!  We had to drag them out after it was dark!  But we plan on going back real soon!

DSCN4313On our way home, we stopped at Macon, GA.  We were tired and needed some rest and had a few stops to make there.  We wanted to stay in Savannah a few more days, but the hotel was booked.  But we found a treasure near Macon!  The Museum of Aviation in Warner Robbins.  It was amazing and the kids loved it!  They got to interact with planes, controls, buttons, and gadgets!  It was a blast and it was free!!!!  Tibi loves planes.  The kids were intrigued by all of the history of America that we found there!  It was awesome!  These are our kids –  we love history and museums!  Father God is amazing!

First Father’s Day

IMG_0118Mommy and the kids spent a lot of time planning for Daddy’s very special first Father’s Day celebration.  I spent time researching ideas and praying about just what to do to make it a very special day for Daddy!

First, I took one of the pictures Daddy first took of the kids after we got home, and sent it to be made into a key chain for him.  Daddy is an amazing photographer and we are so proud of his pictures. The kids told Daddy, that by having the key chain picture, even when they are in school, he will have them with him!

Daddy's cheeseNext, I found a way to use Daddy’s favorite food – CHEESE- to make a special surprise.  I found a picture of dress shirts made out of cheese!!  We used cheese, crackers, pimento, mustard, and pepperoni, to make dress shirts!  We even put them in a little box with paper!   Then we used the olives, pimentos,  and cheese to make the Italian Flag and Hungarian Flag.   The kids had fun making them and Daddy thought they were so special!!!  They were tasty too!

Father's Day lunchThen came the big surprise – we planned and cooked some of Daddy’s favorite foods for lunch!  Now this is huge, because Mommy doesn’t cook very often!!!  So the kids and I went on a special trip to the store and purchased all of the items we needed to make – Angus steak burgers with pimento cheese, steak fries, and broccoli/cauliflower.  The kids really enjoyed helping to make each item for dinner.  They also helped come up with ideas to decorate the table.  We added candles and special dishes for that extra special dining experience!

IMG_0163When Daddy came home for lunch and opened the door, the kids said, “Welcome to La Rosetta.  May we take your shoes?”  Daddy smiled and felt like a King!  We had a wonderful time!  Daddy said it was the best Father’s Day ever!  We are so glad because we know he is the best Daddy ever!!!!

Creative Lessons

We have had a lot of fun learning this summer.  Our family motto is “Make Every Day a Memory!”  So we spend time each day doing something special together.  That something special may be as simple as tickle time – but we make an effort to connect, bond, and love each other every day.

One of our favorite things is after meal time hugs and laps.  After the kids finish eating, they come and sit in our laps.  We talk, laugh, tickle, hug, and make that time special.  We pray that as the children grow up and even get to be teens, our after dinner talks, hugs, and laughs will always be a part of our family routine.

IMG_0025

The kids needed some work on vocabulary and on some math skills, so we came up with some creative play to learn.  The first day, we set up a store.  We used empty containers and boxes and some of their toys.

IMG_0038

We put little green stickers on each item for prices.  We used different dollar and cent amounts and then gave them some play money.  They did not know the names of the coins yet so Mommy was the cashier and helped them learn coin names and counting with coins.  They had a blast!  They enjoyed learning to count money and buying fun items.  We played for hours and they learned most of the names of the coins and the amount that each coin is worth.

IMG_0041IMG_0036

They had to recognize the cost of the item by number recognition and then whether it was dollars or cents by the sign.  We had so much fun!  This was something that I played in my kindergarten class when I was little and I have always remembered it!

Astronaut collageThe kids did not know anything about space or the moon.  So we set up a day that we became astronauts!  We read a book about an astronaut and his trip to the moon.  Then a few days later, we suited up and went on a moon walk!  The kids had so much fun!  We talked about the spaceship, the rockets, gravity, and so much vocabulary.  We used their beds for the space shuttle and blasted off – we practiced counting backwards.  Then we went down the stairs and collected moon rocks.  I had them put weights on the moon rocks – we counted by 10s and 5s.  When we got finished collecting moon rocks, we collect specimens.  I had placed their phonics cards all over the room.  They had to find a card, write the word for the card (with my help) in their scientific astronaut notebooks.  They had so much fun!  We even used the jet packs to collect the specimens and one of the kids floated away and I had to rescue Tibi!  Then Tibi had to rescue Dorina!  We used pretend walkie talkies to communicate and even made the skeee noises!  We also took a break from our mission and had a moon snack – “Moon Pie

We read “A Pocket for Corduroy” one day and then practiced sewing large buttons on canvas.  The kids really enjoyed that too.  We practice writing our names, address, phone numbers, and they have started spelling a few small words.  They still love to sing and that is a daily activity.  Tibi makes up songs all day long about scriptures, numbers, and whatever it is he is doing at the time.  He may be a song writer someday!  The kids love to sing to Jesus and do it all day long!  They also enjoy creative play and are so cute when they play!  They really enjoy imitating every thing that Mommy and Daddy do – that keeps us on our toes!  :-)s!”  The kids had a blast!!!!

IMG_0136We have had fun reading books, riding bikes, playing Frisbee and many other things.  It has been a wonderful time!  The kids have learned many more scripture verses and pray for every one and every thing.  They listen to hear what God is telling them and are so sweet and loving!  We are so proud and so blessed!  We thank God for each day!
