Ethiopian Christmas is celebrated each year on January 7.  To read more about it, click HERE.  Last year, JT was working on his largest fundraiser of the year as he was this year.  Last year, we went to Queen of Sheba, the local Ethiopian restaurant, with the Brown family and the Armstrong family.  As you can see, last year, there were five kids.  Since that time, the Browns have brought home their sons Elijah and Caleb from Ethiopia (after over two years of waiting) and they had baby Asher the old fashioned way. 

This year's Ethiopian Christmas was much louder.  We moved the party to the Armstrong house where Donna and Brittney prepared their wonderful Ethiopian dishes.  I, on the other hand, am a cook in training... I stopped at Queen Sheba to purchase injera and kikwot.  It was such a nice time with some of our favorite friends.  I hope you enjoy some of these pictures.
