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...


You Call this Spring?!

I call it Winter's last strong-hold.  Once again, the weather-casters were correct...shocking...and their prediction of snow came to fruition!  We woke up this past Saturday morning to pouring down rain.  Great sleeping weather - not so great weather for having a little girl's outdoor pony-riding party. :(  I'm sure Nicky's little classmate was less than happy to have her birthday party cancelled.  Daddy gave Momma the morning off (I hadn't slept the night before and the migraine was coming on) (I love you husband!) and took Nicky to the mall to play and have lunch.  That night after dinner, Daddy went to the store for some ice cream, only to realize that it was snowing...a lot!  At the same time, I happened to look outside and come to the same realization.  Who knew?!  I mean...here it is the first day of Spring...in Dallas...and it's SNOWING! 

This morning we got Nicky up and we all had breakfast.  He saw the snow and was super-excited.  He told me he wanted to "hit me with the snow" (meaning he wanted to have a snowball fight) and we talked about making a snowman.  After getting all bundled up, out we went for some fun in the white stuff.

First thing Nicky did - "clean the snow off the trees".  Not sure what that's all about, but it really bothers him that it's on the side of the trees.  Pretty cute to watch though!

We had a snowball fight, which Nicky enjoyed so long as he was the one throwing the snowballs...poor little guy...

Then Daddy decided to talk up his snowman making skills (which is total crap by the way), and got to work, with Nicky's supervision.
I don't know about you, but I definitely think my snowman was much better than Daddy's...good try though!

Momma decided she had had enough of the cold and went in to make lunch, while Daddy and Nicky wandered around the house looking around.  Nicky had fun eating the snow and finding icicles.  The snow might be annoying to deal with (especially when it was sunny and 70 deg two days before) but it's so awesome to get to enjoy it with Nicky!
