Autumn Moon...

We didn't see it but we knew it was there! Just before dusk a thick overcast rolled in preventing us from seeing the Harvest moon...but that didn't stop us from having a little Harvest Moon time in our back yard...
We did not have the traditional "mooncakes" but loved our Choc chip cookies and Ringdings! Yummy!
We sat by the fire and told a traditional Chinese story about the Autumn Moon, talked about there being only one God, who is God almighty, and prayed together for the people of Asia, who celebrate this day as well.
It really was a fun and peaceful time for all :)
Then the heavens opened up and it rain...since we really need the rain here in the Northeast, I'm not complaining!

It sounds like you all had a wonderful Moon Festival! Ringdings are a great idea! The girls may like those better next year! Last year we tried the moon cakes and ... well... it wasn't a pretty sight! LOL!
Blessings,
