Zhong Qiu Jie!

Mom and Reese

Me and Reese

Charlotte's daughter, Rebekka's son, Cayden. I had to share this picture because I love it. It's gorgeous.

Happy Mid-Autumn Festival every one!

Yes, it was yesterday. But this post is about the FCC-CA's Moon Festival. I did the Silent Auction and took pictures. A special thanks to all of our donors for the Silent Auction, and a special thanks to Sue of Unique Furniture for letting me borrow the gorgeous screen to use as a background for my pictures.

We had a good time. Reese got to hang out with other adopted children and revel in the Americanized version of a homeland holiday. Maybe one day we'll get it more accurate, but it was fun. And most American kids don't really get tradition anyway.

We had games and candy, and Reese loved it. She terrorized Zach, Ben's brother, with a Chinese yo-yo for probably a good 20 minutes.

We had a great time and I hope everyone else did too.

I looks like a fun time. Hopefully I will be in town and able to come next year. I love Reese's cute!
