Melkam Genna!

Did you know that Ethiopians celebrate Christmas on January 7? Most Christians in Ethiopia are Ethiopian Orthodox, and they use the Julian calendar, so January 7 it is. :)

This year we went to dinner at an Ethiopian restaurant with two other adoptive families that we're friends with. (Both of them also happen to go to our church! So Ethiopia is well-represented. :) )
Anyway, we all had a blast, and how could we not with ten kids between us??? The food was DELICIOUS, and I do hope this becomes a yearly tradition!
We took a serious picture of the kids, and then this silly one. Heehee!

How wonderful for you and your kids to befriend other adoptive families. We were part of a Holt group that had potlucks from time to time and it was nice to see other blended families with faces similar to ours. And all the kids are so darn cute!

That is so cool! I love the look on Kaitlyn's "really, MUST you drag me along to EVERY event? I'd really much rather be home thankyouverymuch." :)
