Xmas is weird this year because my mom is sick so we postponed going to visit until she feels well and that means a quiet Xmas home with just Victor and Hailey and I. Since we don’t cook we’re eating at the local Chinese buffet and then watching movies at home and it’s different but honestly it’s lovely and low-key even though I miss my family.
My dad asked for one present this year…

Video: For Xmas my dad asked Hailey and I to sing him Xmas carols but I only sing in the shower so that’s where we recorded it. We didn’t get through a single song without laughing and that sort of makes it perfectly us. If you’re looking for a new tradition, may I suggest family shower singing
Hailey wasn’t super into it at first but after a few minutes we were laughing like mad and ended up with a half hour of video that I will honestly love for years to come. We sent it off to my parents and said they will treasure it forever or until they get a new phone. Then a few minutes later this arrived on my phone:
This is what Christmas is all about. Being together even when you’re far apart. Embracing the moments that come rather than the moments you expect.
I hope you all have a wonderful holiday filled with strange wonder and presents you never knew you wanted.
