I have a few pictures to share from the weekend. First, we celebrated P.'s birthday. She didn't want cake, just vanilla ice cream, so B. had to hold the candles for her to blow out.
L. and K. waiting for the present opening to begin.
This book is from TM and D. They spent their own money at the local books by the pound store and bought a book in a series she really likes.
Walkie-Talkies from Grammy and Grandpa
On Sunday we celebrated the Mid-Autumn Moon Festival (Tet Trung Thu) with friends. (Yes, we were a day early, but it's what worked in our schedules.) Everyone had lanterns with candles except for G. and L. who had cute little battery-operated ones.
Everyone waiting for it to have their lanterns lit.

And any photo essay of the weekend would be incomplete with a couple of pictures of baby gerbils, the three little creatures that have totally consumed A.'s every waking moment. This weekend was the moment when, joy of joys, they could finally be picked up.
And while their eyes won't open for another week or so, they can certainly scoot around,
Pet gerbil anyone? There is a strong possibility that a new litter could be on the way and I can guarantee that each and every little gerbil will be very well socialized and hand-trained within an inch of its little life.
