Ethiopian Christmas and Jude's 2nd birthday.

Jude tends to not be a morning person, just like his mama. We filled his room with balloons while he was sleeping. When he woke up he looked and the floor and then looked at me like I was crazy. After being awake for a bit he decided it was really fun. We enjoyed celebrating the first birthday in our house. Lucy can't wait for hers now.

Two months later, I am sharing these with you. I seems I'm never able to find make the time to blog. I find myself writing blog posts in my mind through out the day... I actually have a running list of titles and topics that I'd like to share. In fact, I started this post a week ago and am just now adding the pictures to go with it.
We had a wonderful celebration of the Ethiopian Christmas. It was January 7th. That is also Jude's birthday. My mom was visiting, we went swimming, got take out from Uchenna (our local Ethiopian restaurant), and wore our Ethiopian clothing. Jude got a few birthday gifts. Lucy and I got the same necklace. It was a precious day.

The chef at Uchenna gave Jude a special treat!

I'm not exactly a masterful cake decorator, but I tried and the kids enjoyed it.

A few pics of my little man looking big and 2!
