Ethiopian Gena

On Saturday we went to Denver to celebrate Gena (Christmas) along with many other adoptive families at the Ethiopian Evangelical Church. The hosts could not have been more gracious as they provided a wonderful event with fun games for the kids, hair braiding for the girls, and amazing food.

Meadow getting her hair done - she was not a big fan of the process, but liked the results.

2 teams of a traditional Ethiopian game - Deutsch kids vs Deutsch kids (plus one other boy.)
The settings were wrong on the camera so the only pictures we have of the meal are blurry.
Meadow and Flint were crazy about their injera.
Meadow started out eating with her hands, then later opted for a fork.

It was an honor to be part of the festivities.

I didn't get a good picture of it. I was having trouble with my camera - it was crowded - we were trying to wrangle kids and deal with some poor attitudes/sportsmanship issues with a couple of them - she was crying because it hurt so much - she was really emotional in general at the whole event....
They were 3 big braids that weren't very tight so they started coming out that night.
Sorry - no "after" shots. :)

Bummer, sounds a little stressful, but hopefully, some good together-time regardless.
