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......
