Happy Moon Festival!

I have to tell you-If I ranked holidays by ease of preparation, this would be my favorite! We have been celebrating Autumn Moon Festival-'Bouton Style' for about six years now and we love it! We usually pick up Chinese take out for dinner, but have been known to make spaghetti and call it Longevity Noodles. After dinner, we eat Moon Pies (suppposed to be moon cakes, but we don't have an Asian bakery anywhere nearby, and if I made them, not sure the kids would eat them anyway) and go outside and look at the full moon. Sometimes I read the kids the story of Cheng Er from the Moonbeams and Dragonboats book. So easy, so fun!
