Christmas Around the Country

Merry Christmas everyone! I'm sure you've already heard me caroling on your desktop, but in case you haven't yet, allow me to crawl inside your computer right now and sing it again.

But here's the cool thing: although I celebrated Christmas in Marin County, I was able to share it with my entire family using this thing called Skype, where no matter where my family is located, I can see them on my computer here where I can interact with them.

For example, I Skyped with Katie, Buddha, Auntie Jenn and Uncle Aaron. I don't know how they did it, but from San Diego, they somehow appeared on my computer and we had a nice conversation. I think they crawled into it, but that didn't seem right, and I don't see my Uncle Aaron as the crawling type.

Then I Skyped with Grandma and Grandpa in New York. I have no idea how they fit into my computer but they were really happy to see me. I guess they weren't that uncomfortable in there.

And then I Skyped with Uncle Mike, Aunt Sue, Nicky, Ava Rose and the gang in New York. Even Uncle Joe, Aunt Celeste, Alana and Marisa were there. It was like they were having a party in my computer. Trust me, I wanted to crawl inside of it and join them.

However, when the computer shut down, they all went away. And I had a great time with Mommy, Daddy, Gram, Grampa, Uncle Shannon, Auntie Nessa and Petra.

So, even though I was many miles away, I got to spend my first Christmas with everyone I love.

And who said infants don't understand the meaning of Christmas gifts?
