Christmas Pictures from Ethiopia

Imagine our delight when we received photos of our daughter opening gifts on her Ethiopian Christmas.  Looks like they had quite a celebration!  Here are a few of my favorite shots.  She looks like she grew already! 

Sticky lollipop goodness! 
Don't even think about taking my lollipop! 

~In her Christmas best~

Gifts from a donor!
Probably the first she's ever received

One of her nannies helping her open her gifts!
New Shoes!  

She received a traditional Ethiopian Dress! 
She doesn't look too happy about the head scarf! 

A new doll!


  1. Oh how fun! I love how special they made Christmas for the kids :) We just heard that our pictures are coming too...really hard to wait for them after seeing yours. She is beautiful. I will be sure to give her a kiss from her mama when I see her :)

  2. CANNOT even handle how cute she is! I still love looking at the pics CWA had sent us of our kiddos in the orphanage...such a gracious gift during the wait:)

  3. That is one cute kid!

  4. Oh, your pictures are great! I love the dress! Evangelle received one as well, but I think she'll probably be 10 before it will fit her. =)

    It was really sweet of them to do this for the children.
