Every year, I wonder if this would be the year that Brianne and Bridgette would find out the truth about Santa Claus. They’ve started asking skeptical questions, like how Santa Claus gets into the houses in Hong Kong without a chimney. My hilarious sister made a mistake last year of using the same wrapping paper for Santa’s gift as she did with hers, and Brianne called her out on it. So, the girls are definitely getting more suspicious, but as of Christmas 2013, Santa Claus was still the legendary mystery gift-passer who climbs down chimneys and flies through windows. 🙂
We had a quiet Christmas dinner at my sister’s home, with hotpot + champagne + silliest performances ever by the girls. Since we stayed home for Christmas, we splurged a bit on our New Years Eve dinner–teppanyaki with an extraordinary view of Hong Kong’s harbor.
The remainder of our trip was a combination of visiting friends/families, chilling at home, and eating out. As long as the girls were together, they were content, regardless of what activities we had planned for the day!
