Christmas day with the van der Meers

Probably professing my conversion from real-tree advocacy to fake-tree advocacy.

"Daddy, I really hope Santa is good to me this year because lets be honest, I deserve it. I hope I get anything but baby golf clubs."

"Oh man it's so exciting - I wonder what's in here! Could it be a doll house, a horse, a nice handbag?"

"Maybe it will be a big puzzle or..."

"Baby golf clubs?"

"No seriously, people...is this a joke?"

"Well, I guess I can give it a try."

"Hey now! This is kind of fun!"

"Wheeee this rules!"

"Did you see that, did you see that?? I smacked the ball across three rooms!"


Take that baby prodigies across the world!"

"So my daddy says if I start a sport ridiculously young, I have a good chance of going pro and making millions and buying him and mommy a yacht."

{Christmas Round 2}

After a nap & a change of clothes, Christmas resumes with a big lunch, more gifts & playtime in the park...

"You think I don't see you, eh?"

"This hide and seek behind the bridge does not get old!"

Seriously focusing on steering the ship

"Opa, you don't say... You really just sent 1,500 'Happy Holidays' texts at once with your iPhone? Amazing.
