Soooooooooo of course, like everyone always does, we had an AFTER party, about 5 hours after the wedding...
AFTER THE PARTY!!!
MJ looks sooooooo cuuuute in this pic!!!
Just enjoyin my flowers!!!Sunday morning!!!
We slept in for some MUCH NEEDED SLEEP and then got some chicken and waffles!!!!
O loves his bacon!!!
I just looooove Ethiopian food!!!
The Bride...isn't her Ethiopian wedding dress pretty bomb...
Hanna just always has this exotic look to her!!!
Don't I look good in it???
With Mocha Mom!!!
At this point, and you can't quite see it the pictures but all the family gathered around and started singing an old Ethiopian blessing song to newlyweds! I'm NOT quite fluent in Amharic, buuuuuuuuut it the translation of it was something along the lines of may they be fruitful and their seed be as blessed as the seed of Abraham...
Btw: Brandon, the groom is not Ethiopian, he is African American, buuuuuuuuut he did a DNA test to find out what African ethnicity he descends from and he is mostly Nigerian. He's pretty proud of that fact!!! Isn't that cool that you can find that out? I want to find out what all I am...buuuuut I'm scared I'll find out I'm even less Italian than JUST HALF!!! AHAHAHAAA!!! Buuuuuuuuut then, WHAT IF I"M MORE??? I'll pretty much NEVERRRR shut up about that if it's true!!! Hee, hee!!!
Also, I am now able to do the Ethiopian ululation noise!!! So I really am officially part Ethiopian, although, Mesgana already said that I was, buuuut I guess I am even more now!!!
Odin was literally loved by all of Hanna's family!!! This is one of her cousins that they left shouting besties and BFFS too...that kid!!! NEVER MET A STRANGER...NEVERRRRR!!!INTO THE CITY!!!
OR THESE ONES!!!
Isn't this like, THE COOLEST picture everrrr of me???
MJ took it, she was feeling like a photographer tonight...usually I get a huff an eye roll...buuuuuuuuuuuuut apparently, she had a temporary interest in due someone else being interested in photography...I'm like...ummmm really... can some boys her age in AZ take an interest in photography as well???? Cuz to be honest, I ACTUALLY think she is quite talented!!!
