Melkam Addis Amet!!

Happy Ethiopian New Year!!

We celebrated the new year with yummy Ethiopian food and dancing this past weekend.  I finally made some pretty good injera (I've tried and failed at this many, many times but now have a good recipe that works--nothing like what you get in Ethiopia, but at least my kids are happy with it).

My biggest girl ready for the feast.

All my girls!

The whole clan minus daddy (taking picture) and Eli (until next year :-)

Nothing makes this girl happier than a piece of meat.  She was delighted to get to eat the chicken leg.

After dinner, we broke it down with some Ethiopian music and dancing.  These two  goofballs --Rahel dancing in the background and Meron giving me her best eyebrow lift.

We had a blast celebrating the new year. We are so thankful for the rich culture 
our girls have brought to our family.
