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...


Back to School Party

being able to quit my job and stay home with nick this past summer was one of the best decisions i've made in my life.  it seemed like he and i bonded so much more than we had in the 3 years since we brought him home!  i was finally "fun momma", instead of "hurry up and get ready for school/eat your dinner so we can get ready for bed/let's go grocery shop & run errands/i'm too tired to do anything fun momma"!  we had play dates, went swimming, church camp, traveled, hung out and played at home, you name it!  things were so easy going, and relaxed and it felt awesome to not have much of a care in the world...not to mention not know what the heck day of the week it was!
sadly, all things have to come to an end, and as the days grew shorter, and the weather got chilly...wait...what am i talking about?!  this is texas!  the weather only gets hotter in august!  anyway...you get the picture!  it was back to school time, so the fun in the sun had to wind down.  the momma's group from church decided to get together for one last blow-out swim party and one of them brought an adorable pinata pig she made for all the kids to smash and enjoy
 here's our rag-tag group of kiddos all ready to beat the pig and score some loot!
 we let sweet little blair go first since she's the youngest...she was very dainty with just a small tap on the piggie's belly...
 then after the girls all had their turns, the boys got their turn...trevor {on the left} had quite the swing and meant business as he smacked the poor pig.  nick was a bit more subdued in his approach...
 eventually the pig was busted open, and the spoils were on the ground for everyone to grab!
 we all bid farewell, and decided that us momma's would meet up for breakfast after dropping our kiddos off at school on the first day of school, only a few days away!  yikes!
nick passed out in the back seat on the way home, as he tended to do after our long days running around this summer.  i only hope that next summer brings as much happiness and fun!
xoxo...liese :o)
