Feliz Navidad

The family all came over to Diego's parents' house for Christmas today -- in Argentina the holiday is celebrated mostly in the evening of Christmas Eve, with Santa arriving at midnight. They'll be back tomorrow for lunch to help us deal with the enormous amount of leftovers!

We ate, ate, and ate some more, opened presents from under the pine tree in the front yard, and spent a lot of time in the pool since it was still hot even late at night on this 104 degree day. Around 2 am a storm arrived so we all ran inside to escape the strong wind and rain. Probably the strangest event of the day was a dog we assume escaped from a neighbor's house ran into the pool! Diego's cousin Lautaro rescued him and now we have a dog living with us until the owner arrives and notices their dog is missing.
