Happy Harvest Moon Festival!!

Today is the Harvest Moon Festival in China. My neighbor Chrissy, (below, with me at her goodbye party) just moved to China a few weeks ago & sent home a big box of mooncakes. Her housemates, sister Michelle and friend Andrea, brought them over to share with us.

They come in a big beautiful box, and when it is opened, it makes a train of little boxes. It is tradition to cut the mooncake into four pieces and to share.

Here we are, ready to try them!!


Ewwwwwwww!! Yuk!

But thanks, Chrissy! It was wonderful to be a part of this Chinese tradition while we wait for our baby girl!! I have a few pictures of Hannah Banana, too, but they will have to go on the next blog -- the system is not cooperating to let me add more!
