Last night was the big fancy Egyptian Event at the Children's Museum of Indianapolis for the opening of two new Egyptian Exhibits. My twin sister Jer has been working on both of these Exhibits so my whole family went to "wow" at everything. She has been working with Dr. Zahi Hawass, the Secretary General of Egypt's Supreme Council of Antiquities. He has that big fancy title, but mostly he spends his time in tunnels and tombs underground. Jer has been working on projects here and in Egypt. All of the folks she has been working with in Egypt are fabulous and several of them were able to attend last nights big hoo-haa. There is a documentary out now about Jer's journey to make these exhibits and it totally makes me cry-I am so proud of her.
So yes, we all got dressed up! Jer looked like an Egyptian Goddess in a green beaded and pleated gown with a special headpiece I made just for the event. I wore the champagne silk empire waisted gown with the peacock headpiece, our younger sister Kimi wore a dress that is similar in shape to mine but in black, our mom had on a gorgeous combo of black and turquoise and our dad had on a new white dinner jacket. Zahi looked fabulous in a tux! We are all used to seeing him in his famous hat and covered in dust and dirt. Oh, and I did paint my toes and wear some fancy shoes-ooh la la! Photos are promised!
(and yes, I always have to make a silly face in photos-ugh!)
