We are a married couple who adopted our little Russky, Nikita {aka Nicky, Nicky noodle, little man, Nikoli, the Nickster, crazy dude, goofball, puppy love, etc...you get the picture!} from St Petersburg, Russia four years ago. Join us as we stumble through the joys and perils of parenthood, while our son teaches us a few things along the road...


Nicky Meets the Easter Bunny

This past weekend, we had planned to take Nicky on his first Easter egg hunt, in the neighboring town, which was purported to be the "largest in the state of Texas". (why is it that everything has to be the "biggest" or "best" in this state? just wondering.) I bought a bunch of books that told stories about the Easter Bunny, etc and we read them to Nicky in preparation for the big hunt. Unfortunately, the weather on Saturday was blustery and miserable, thus forcing the Johnson's to remain indoors. Mr Nicky, was so excited to go, that he kept talking about "bunny. eggs. basket." As pictured below, Nicky was thrilled to have his Easter basket - he "wore" it around his neck while watching tv; took it to Target & the mall with us & later in the afternoon used it as a "suitcase" for his "trip" on the "airpene"! (thanks for the basket Nana & Pop!)No amount of explaining that we would not be hunting that day convinced him that we would be spending the day as we do any other Saturday - shopping for groceries at Target. We did have an added bonus however; Daddy was off work since it was his birthday, so he joined us on our jaunt. We felt so badly that we would not be hunting, that we ended up finding the Easter Bunny hanging out at one of our local malls, so at least Nicky got to meet him!
Nicky's 1st Meeting of the Easter Bunny
Hugging it out with the Easter Bunny (this was followed by a kiss on the bunny's nose, which Momma missed!)
After visiting with Mr. E. Bunny (which he thoroughly enjoyed), Nicky became fascinated with the fountain, so we gave him some change to throw in and make a wish (or 4...what can I say? With this economy, I could only spare 4 measly pennies!).
Making a wish
Nicky just had to touch the water & thought it was great fun to lean over each section around the fountain over & over.
Afterwards, we went home, had lunch & then took a nap (Momma sure does enjoy her some nap time!). Nicky woke up, still wondering when we would be leaving for the egg hunt. :( We, of course, plan to hide eggs for him on Easter, but wanted him to experience a "big", organized hunt with other children. We were happy to find out that there will, indeed, be a hunt at our church on Easter morning! And - Nicky will be there with basket on!
