Busy beautiful butterfly

OK, just when I thought she had summited the cuteness mountain she finds higher peaks to climb.  Lucy is into dressing up.  My daughter ... is a girly girl!  I hope her new hobby doesn't interfere with camping this summer.  Grandma bought her butterfly wings after witnessing Lucy's Wiggle Safari video with the butterfly dancers.  The result????  Totally adorable.  Breathtakingly cute.  Stunningly beautiful.  I think that you, the readers will have to agree (even though I know that a lot of you either have or are about to have very adorable children of your own) that Lucy is all sorts of cute.   Two things:  1. I never thought I would be happy to have a girly-girl daughter and 2. I never thought I'd be writing such a blabbering blog unless I was being sarcastic (which I am not!).  So here is some photo evidence.

Ethiopian Christmas

Will try to add photos tomorrow.  Tonight we had our 2nd annual Ethiopian Christmas party.  What a festive evening!  We had 45 guests in our small bungalow.  Saturday my dad and I cooked 4 different Ethiopian dishes.  I bought the Injera.   We had children from lots of different parts of the world join us:  India, China, S. Korea, Ethiopia, W. Africa ...   The best part!  It was baby Genevieve's 1st birthday.  Genevieve came home from China about a month ago ..  she's so beautiful,  she seems very secure with her momma and still keeps busy exploring her environment. Yeah Genevieve, welcome!!!!  Lucy is finally getting some girl-friends!
