Thanksgiving, the Wong Way

Thanksgiving with the Wongs.  It's one reason that I married Wes.  All of my past Thanksgivings up to my first one with the Wong family have been fun, but not too unlike other big family dinners with relatives and cousins squeezed around long tables covered with a mixture of Chinese restaurant party trays and whatever the women felt like cooking that day.  Of course, I've had a fair share of dinners comprised entirely of dim-sum take-out with the Wongs as well.  However, Thanksgiving is a culinary affair that is never to be taken lightly by the men of this family.

Halloween: Bridezilla & the Helpless Groom

We were not planning to do anything on Halloween this year.  I don't know how I ended up standing in a check-out line that wound through the aisles at Party City for some fuzzy devil horns, whipping out the entire eyeshadow palette, and digging the veil out of our wedding memory box which Wes had just moved to the back of storage.  Wes doesn't know how he ended up getting painted with fake blood, carving a pumpkin at two o'clock in the morning, and busting out his camera tripod and flash snoot for an impromptu photoshoot.
