Happy Mid Autumn Moon Festival!

Josie brought sugar cookies and mini battery operated lanterns to preschool today.

The cookies were a huge hit. Next year I think I'm going to order a moon cake mold from Pearl River and use short bread cookie dough.

We went out to dinner this evening with a colleague from Chris's school. The kids had a ball together. I'm sure you aren't surprised to read that Emma and Josie are insisting that they need a baby brother now.

Wishing you a fun filled time with family and friends!

What a fun night. Josie looks so proud with her goodies, I am sure she loved sharing treats with her friends at school.

Hi Kim! Thanks for all the autumn moon info. This newby needs it. Just watched the video. Need to get to a book store. This is our first real autumn moon festival with Lian. Last year we came back from China the night or two before our local celebration. Needless to say, we did not make it. This year we are going to a local campground/park with beach access for a picnic dinner with local FCC group. Think they will have arts and crafts for kids too. Will give you an update.

Happy Moon Festival to you too! Thank you for the beautiful necklace! Love it! Jailyn opened it and said, "ohhhh momma this is beautiful - it looks Chinese!" pause... "I will put it away for you, this is very special - you need to wear this for Chinese New Year." She is sooo right - it is very special! Thank you so much!

and yes, I must agree I think your girls do need a little brother - have you seen Ben on my blog- perfect!!!! (He was on HOLD, but is not any longer :(
