Some new version of hear no evil, see no evil and speak no evil, I guess!

What Halloween Means to Me

H = Heartburn
A = Aggravation
L = Little Sleep
L = Lots of Stress
W = "Where the hell is my costume?"
E = Evil, idiotic customers!
E = Endless bottles of pain killers.
N = NO your charity can not have some free stuff.

And trying hard to make sure that Chianna does not grow up feeling this way! Hopefully she can see the fun and magic of the holiday!

FCC Halloween Party

In October we got together with our FCC friends and family for our annual trick or treat luncheon! We were so happy to finally have Chianna home to celebrate with us!

With the expression on both of their faces, I guess they are upset that I'm taking a picture instead of filling their tirck or treat bags!

Autumn Moon Festival

Autumn Moon Festival Celebration - October 3, 2009.

Each year, we celebrate the Autumn Moon Festival with our FCC family of friends. We have a wonderful dinner at Miss Yip's Cafe on South Beach and then head down Lincoln Road to the beach. As part of the festival, we tie messages to white balloons (to represent the full moon) and release them at the beach to send our messages to our loved ones. It's a very special event every year, and of course this year was extremely special because we got to spend it with Chianna for the first time! We celebrated 2 Autumn Moon Festival without her, sending messages to her and this year, our message was very simple: "THANK YOU!"

Eating dinner at Miss Yips, practicing with the chop sticks.

Heading down to the beach.

The beach!

That is the full moon behind us, not the sun! I had to lighten this picture to get it visible, but its one of my faves.

Trying desperately to get a group shot.

And the lanterns turn into sand buckets!

Mia, Katie & Ethan burying Myke's shoes in the sand!

It's hard to see, but those are the balloons flying up and away.

Good night, Autumn Moon!
