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...


Old Nana Turns 90

Not that being 90 makes one old, although it is rather old in comparison to say, a spring chicken.  But, we call "Old Nana", Old Nana, because she is the more seasoned version of the Nanas, and my nephew Brenden called her that one day and it's just kinda stuck.

That being said, Old Nana turned 90 this year and the Hudgins clan (my mom's side of the family) all got together in San Antonio to throw her a shin-dig.  It was nice to have the whole family together, however, it was kinda sad because Old Nana didn't quite know what was going on the whole time.  Now that I think about it, it would be nice to not know what's going on around me at times - too bad sinility can't be turned on and off like a switch.

We all noshed on yummy food and chatted throughout the afternoon/early evening and Nicky and his cousins ran around the house and played pretty well unsupervised, while munching on super-healthy snacks (said with much sarcasm, mind you).  Not that all Nicky's meals/snacks are chock-full of nutritious bits, however, we don't tend to give him copious amounts of cake/chips/candy, etc, unless it's a special occasion.  He's probably wishing the Christmas holiday would last longer so he could enjoy more junk food!

Anywho...here are some pictures of the extended family enjoying being together...

Happy Birthday, Old Nana...and many more! :)

ps...not sure why it's taken me so long to post this (her birthday was the day after Christmas).  I'm gonna blame it on the fact that my cousin Kelsey took so many wonderful pictures of the special day and I just couldn't decide which ones to post!  Thank you, Kelsey for doing such a good job, and thank you, Nana, for putting on a fun party!
