Holiday Dinner with the Cousins. 2018

Last Saturday we spent the evening with our cousins for an end-of-year holiday get together and a Christmas celebration with all our families.  We have been celebrating a holiday gathering with our local Bay Area cousins for over ten years and is a dinner that we enjoy so much and look forward to every year. There is always, and I mean always lots of laughter, great food, and great times when our cousins get together. This is a fun fun party and this year was no exception. Here is a look at this year’s holiday dinner with the cousins.

Meera and Mahesh’s home is always so festively decorated for the holidays that I couldn’t resist taking pictures of the beautiful and tasteful decor in their home.

Starting the evening with a few appetizers.

The laughter here was about the iPhone! All the idiotic autocorrects, how the iphone locks you out of your own phone, the ridiculous security questions, and the craziness of iCloud sharing.

    1. It was a really fun evening. We had taken charades to play and Mahesh had his karaoke machine ready too, but we didnt need any of those as we were having so much fun just talking and laughing and being together.

      The cake looks amazing I know! Its a three layer chocolate cake with chocolate ganache. It took Sri over 3 hours to make it! Not making it again 😀
