Rob and I’s eighth Christmas together! This year he got me a new camera lens so we can actually start documenting our life together.
A few tidbits:
+ This holiday, Kassie’s papa saw Santa. Apparently the television was in front of the fireplace so he had to move it so he could get down the chimney and deliver all of their presents.
+ Kevin and Kristopher’s inner boy scout came out and they created an indestructible rope using tissue paper and fishing knots. The result? An unbeatable game of tug of war against Kassie (see last photo).
+ My mom was excited to use the selfie stick that she got in the Philippines last month to get a family photo (second to last photo).
+ Rob and I learned how to make a Christmas ham! Expect this on all Van/Santos holiday tables from now on.
+ Not to pat myself on the back or anything, but I’m pretty sure my dad’s favorite Christmas gift was a professional tournament-grade ping pong paddle. It’s kind of his new obsession and he wakes up my little brothers every day before school to play with them.
+ Andrew has proven to be a worthy addition to our family. His octopus ceviche knocked it out of the park and he gave everyone the sweetest potted plant that he created from one of his heirloom fern cuttings.
