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...


We're Off to See the Wizard!

the dutton {& russky} cast of the wizard of oz!
 we spent halloween as we did last year...trick-or-treating with our good friends the dutton's.  sweet girlfriend blair turned 2, so they decided to have a big backyard halloween birthday party for her.  there were games, munchies, and crafts to keep all the kiddos busy, and everyone seemed to have a smashing good time!
wendy always wanted to have a full-family wizard of oz themed halloween, so we dressed the little russky as the cowardly lion.  he was so cute if i do say so myself!
lion's and tigers & blair's oh my!  hee hee hee!  here's the birthday girl with her boyfriend nick & big brother trevor.
kris was a bit tall to be one of the flying monkeys, and glenda the good witch was already being played by wendy's mom, so we decided to go out on our own and be a "pair of blue jeans/genes".  clever, no?  the other parents at the party didn't get the memo about dressing up, so we scored ourselves the funniest costume award!  woo hoo!
cowardly lion nick & tin man trevor
dorothy & the cowardly lion all set to fill their bags with trick-or-treat delights 

kris had to work at the fire station the night of halloween, so i decided to just dress up as  a SAHM! {stay-at-home-momma}
me & my sweet russky lion :) <3
we all had a blast at the birthday party, and scored a ton of yummy loot the next night trick-or-treating.  i remember going door-to-door with our neighbors growing up, and i feel so fortunate we have made such awesome friends, and have started our own traditions for the holidays!  can't wait to see how the kids all grow and compare the pictures of the years gone by!

xoxo...liese :o)
