Mid-Autumn Moon Festival

We’ll be walking around the neighborhood tonight with candle lit lanterns – (last night was cloudy in Chicago). We do this every year and I invite friends to join us. I try to have Moon Cakes and Ding Dongs but this year we’re having moon pies, (I never made it to the bakery to get moon cakes). It’s the walking around with the lanterns that the kids look forward to each year. M.Y., is so excited because this year as she gets a candle (I have some battery lanterns for the under 4). I keep it simple that way I can manage it each year. The pictures are from last year.

I love moon cakes! You wouldn't believe how many kinds there are. We saw stores and stores full of them in Taiwan. Ding Dongs are a great, hilarious way to go!

Have a wonderful trip! I've actually never been to China, and now that my parents live in Taiwan, we save our trips to visit them.

Lovingly yours, it so touches my heart,
