We hosted a birthday party for Simon this past weekend and it was an unbelievable blast. We are very lucky to have amazing family and friends.
We didn't want it to be too overwhelming for the little guy so we hosted it as an open house with people coming and going throughout the afternoon and evening. We have had so many people write letters of reference for us, help with baby-sitting or offer a listening ear during this long process that we were thrilled when they finally got to meet the little guy that is now part of our family.
The theme of the party was Ethiopia (or EthioKia as James says.) I made flag inspired appetizers and cupcakes along with authentic Ethiopian hotdogs.*
*We did serve two Ethiopian dishes along with Injera but I wasn't smart enough to get photos of those!
