Gotcha Day 2014

The day after coming home from Florida, we celebrated another big family milestone.  4 years prior, we held Malachi in our arms for the very first time!  It's hard to believe it has already been 4 years but we are so glad to have him as part of our family!  He is a young man full of joy and life!  We couldn't love him anymore, I just wish he'd stop growing!  This year the party was a little bit more low key but I was just happy to be home to get to celebrate the day with him!  

We made our typical Ethiopian feast of Sega Wat, Doro Wat, and Ethiopian Honey Bread.  He also requested homemade ice cream.  

We love you Malachi and are so glad we were home to celebrate your special day with you. It doesn't seem possible that it has been 4 years since you joined our family but we are so grateful for the privilege to be your mom and dad!  We love you more than you will ever know.  You are an incredible little boy with so much personality and joy!  You are also so kind and gentle. God has something big planned for your life!
