Sometimes I think my Tennessee and Arkansas relatives are speaking through me. Or maybe it's the fact that I spent the first 6 months of my life in West Virginia. Or maybe it's just the influence of the magical Pole Beans.
Our Christmas Eve consisted of video skype with my family, who are in O'ahu, from my newly painted room in Portland.
We watched them do their xmas thing, the kids singing and dancing and then we hula hooped for them and did shadow puppets and then we witnessed them open presents (and it wasn't even xmas!)
Then the last 2 hours i had the camera pointed at the projection screen and we all watched random video from a farmers market in portland to vacation footage from alaska.
This was the strangest xmas eve we've ever had.
