Ashley and I celebrated our first Thanksgiving here in Atlanta with a feast my mom would be proud of. The spread was a 19 lb turkey with Mrs. Peng’s classic stuffing and gravy, onion and garlic mashed potatoes, green beans, candied yams, biscuits, corn and a dessert of apple and strawberry rhubarb pie.
We invited a few of Ashley’s master’s program classmates over, Marienella, Abby and Abhi. We had a great time and everyone enjoyed the food. Here’s some pictures of our feast.
By the way, Thanksgiving also happens to be Cappy’s birthday, he turns 4 this year and this is his third thanksgiving with us. He got some turkey too!
Ash and I carved our first pumpkin ever, not as hard as we thought! Next year we’re going for something even more challenging.Â This is for all the movies and music we downloaded. Arrrrgh!
Yup, finally got an XBOX 360 (Ashley’s birthday gift to me) and bought my first game, HALO 3. Haven’t played it yet but will be getting on top of that delay of game right after this post.
It’s not that I don’t know how to spell Christmas, but this was exactly how the people at “Hokkaido”, the restaurant we had dinner at last night, spelled it! It was posted up with this typo all over the restaurant! And let me tell you, that restaurant was huggggggggeeeeeeeee! Can you imagine the typo all over the place? hahaha. I thought it was funny.
Anyways, today is Christmas and it’s the second one that my huney and I are spending here in Alameda. Although there’s no bells and whistles here at our apartment today, I am still extremely happy that huney and I got to spend it together. We had a pretty casual day, yet, it was fun! Before dinner, we went to Thompson Lane, a street here in Alameda that is full of christmas lights! None of the houses was extremely impressive, but it was very festive as a street, collectively. Many people stroll through it as if it was a tourist site. In fact, here in Alameda, besides the annual Peanut Butter festival in September, this street is definitely an Alameda highlight.
I am so happy to be here with Huney tonight. We watched the rest of season one for “Lost,” and it was such a tease to have it end the way it did! As I am writing, huney is downloading season 2 and I can’t wait to watch more! Huney is so good about keeping us entertained in this home. He is named the Director of Media for the Kit Family. hehehe. Let me tell you that he definitely earned that name and is doing a greatttttttt job! And see this blog that I am writing in? Guess who created this whole thing? yeap. Bewa Peng. Isn’t he awesome or what? He is the most wonderful and bestest Bewa eva!
I can’t wait to make another entry in this blog! I want to contribute more into this Kit Family blog so that someday, the people we care about can read our thoughts. Merry Christmas 2006 everyone!!!! 🙂
Ashley and I would like to wish everyone a happy Christmas, Hanukkah, Kwanzaa, Pagan Festival of Lights (as someone called it) or any other holiday you celebrate. We sent cards out to everyone we could get addresses to so hope you all got our cards. In case you did not, here it is again! 🙂
Ray, Ash, Pok’e and Cappy
