Melkam Gena!

Merry Christmas! Ethiopia celebrates Christmas on January 7th each year and 2009 marks our first Ethiopian Christmas celebration as a family of 3. We plan on on preparing lots of wat, singing and dancing to our CD's of Ethiopian music, and showing Ashton various videos on youtube of his birth country. He LOVES watching videos that other Ethiopian adoptive families post on their blogs and youtube. It's sure to be a day of celebration. Melkam Gena!

Around this time last year we had these documents to celebrate. Life was good.


And this time this year we have this little man to celebrate. Life's a little bit better than good this year.
