Ethiopian New Years

Today we celebrated Ethiopian New Years.  It was really fun.  Maeve LOVED the music and tried to mimic all the dancers who were up on stage... slightly miffed that she wasn't allowed up there during the performances, but made up for it with stellar dancing afterwards.

Heading off to the party, all the while, carrying a saw and screwdriver... you can never be too prepared... 


Meeting up with some of our Ethiopian play group friends... 


A lot of the kids sat down right in front... so you know who else was there...


And, then they started to copy all the dancers...

After the festivities at the Ethiopian Community Center,  we headed for a little Ethiopian feast with friends at a nearby restaurant... it turned into a bit of a gong show as Maeve and her friend, Keegan, were a little riled up.  But, they definitely enjoyed celebrating their country's holiday... Proud to be Ethiopian :-)
