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...


Christmas 2010...better late than never!

last christmas we celebrated with granny & poppa {kris' parents}.  it was the first year nick truly understood what all the fuss was about and he was actually excited for the big red man to come.  we were also fortunate enough to spend time with our good friends the dutton's (andrew, wendy, trevor and blair bear).  we walked the lights in our neighborhood with mugs of hot chocolate and had yummy desserts.  we also attended the candlelight service at our church.  it was a great christmas and each one is better than the last as nicky learns all about the true meaning of christmas...

here are a few shots of nick helping make and decorate our christmas cookies.  i bought some fun beach inspired ones to go with our home decor, but the cookies themselves turned out really flat...and huge!  we did our best with what we had, and they tasted good none-the-less!
