We had our festival last night - it was fun. We learned a lot, enjoyed our time together AND decided we would NOT be ordering Mooncakes again!!!! We ordered from two different companies and we didn't really enjoy either - but then we weren't too surprised - there weren't many desserts in China and the ones we tried weren't that great either!
Now for some pictures:
Making our Moon Papers to hang by the door - we didn't follow "China" tradition, but we did talk about it with the kids and then decided to paint things we were thankful for. Micah chose to paint a cross.
The famous Mooncakes - they were very interesting....it reminded us of being in China - in the books we were reading, it said the yolks inside were duck yolks - we were hoping they were chicken yolks!!!!
Burning our "Moon Papers" ~ Reminded us of what we are thankful for......
When you are harvesting your crops and forget to bring in a bundle of grain from your field, don't go back to get it. Leave it for the foreigners, orphans and widows. Then the LORD your God will bless you in all you do.
