Ethiopian New Years

Ethiopia follows a different calendar and celebrated their new years today -- the year 2006.  We are so lucky to have a large Ethiopian community locally and Maeve happily put on her Ethiopian dress and headed to the outdoor party to celebrate.  She loved it.  At this point she knows several kids pretty well, and any excuse to run around and then eat Ethiopian food is a good day for both of us.  Maeve's good friend, Lucy, joined us... so the girls had fun together.  As I look at the pictures I took, I realize that I didn't capture any to show the general happenings... there were a ton of people celebrating and most everyone was wearing their traditional outfits.  So beautiful.
