In China it has become similar to our Thanksgiving. Once I read that I knew this was one festival I wanted to celebrate every year. There are a couple of Chinese celebrations that we plan to celebrate yearly with two other families who have adopted. Our friends D & L have adopted from Taiwan, and our friends D & C are leaving on Tuesday for China to meet their sweet little girl, L. We have decided that we will continue to celebrate until the kids say otherwise. :o)

|Here Z is helping me make our moon pumpkin cookies.|
For the record, he doesn't usually sit on the counter.
|The best part of the evening was when C led a lantern parade around the house. |
You can't tell in the picture, but these little lanterns light up.
|Look at the moon!|
