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...


turkey day 2010...a tad overdue...

the end of 2010 was quite the blur.  we busily prepared for my parents, brother, his kids, and my cousins and their families to join us for thanksgiving.  that meant prepping the inside and outside of the house - which for kris, meant spending countless hours outside trimming, planting, mowing, hanging decor, etc.  he's such a good boy! :)  anyhoo...at this point, our pictures are gonna speak a 1000 words...because i don't have any super stories to go along with them other than the fact that spending time with family can be both rewarding and stressful at the same time.  at the end of the day, i'm so thankful to have such a wonderful, loving, awesome family that i get to spend time with and i cherish every moment!

kris, brent, viv & pop all got to go to the Cowboy's game on thanksgiving day itself, so our feast was the day after.  here's kris & brent testing out some Cowboy's apparel for the game.  {notice i capitalized Cowboy's & yet nothing else...yeah...i live in texas...football always comes 1st!}

the kiddos hung out playing, making crafts while nana & i prepped our thanksgiving feast

we took our stir crazy bunch to look at christmas lights in our neighborhood while we waited for the football bunch to return
after lights, we came home for dessert and cozy-ing up in our comfy jammies
over the weekend we took the kids to the mckinney dickens' of a christmas for some food and activities.  2010 was our 3rd annual visit and we must like it because we already have plans to attend this year!

brenden & nicky with their faces painted...this was nicky's 1st time to actually allow it to be done!  he's not the biggest fan of paint on the face...i don't think he likes the way it feels.

other than that we pretty much just hung out at the house, ate a TON and enjoyed spending time together!  
xoxo...liese :o)
