Last night we had a party to celebrate the girls' 1 year anniversary with us. We had several families from our adoption support group come as well as good friends and Grandpa & Grandpa Kinnell. Some of our friends from Northern KY brought injera and I made 2 traditional Ethiopian dishes to share with everyone. The biggest compliment for me came from the older kids from Ethiopia who told me my Ethiopian food was good. Chloe didn't like my Mesir Wat (Lentil dish), but the night was a success overall. Now if I could get the smell of Ethiopian food out of my kitchen. =)
We got a bit creative with the cupcakes. Matt drew the star and I did the rest. They represent the Ethiopian flag.
