Ansi, this is a beautiful story featuring all 4 Cartwrights, including Joe's mom Marie and Hop Sing.

I like the dialogues between Marie and Ben and their dealings with each other - like two freshly in love.

Since they don't know Hop Sing's birthday, they want to celebrate the day he and Ben met for the first time - a great idea - as well as the story of how they met.

I can image the feelings of Hop Sing when he saw all the lanterns, especially for him, on this day.

Nice to mention that such lanterns have always been a part of the parties on the Ponderosa since that day.

Well written, ansi!

What a great story, ansi! I love the relationship between Ben and Marie; one can easily see the affection they have for each other, and their banter is delightful!  Marie's idea to have a celebration for Hop Sing warms my heart, and so does the glimpse of Hop Sing's back story that you give us.  The portrayal of the three boys is great, too!  Thank you for a very enjoyable story.

This is a very touching and as complex depiction of the Cartwright's relationship with Hop Sing.  The lanterns are as firmly settled into the family story as Hop Sing himself.  Very well written.

Well this is as lovely as I thought it was going to be after reading the beginning on the board.  I found out while reading this that I absolutely adore Marie and saucy Ben, lol.  And little Joe being as high in energy as he is when he's bigger Little Joe is so true to form and believable. 

I love how you've told the story of this Cartwright family tradition. Beautiful language, just like the subject matter.  And finding out what the different colors mean was really interesting, too.
