Holiday Dinner with the Cousins 2019

Happy Tuesday!

How was your weekend? Attended a holiday party or two? Maybe at your friends place, with family or a company party?  I hope you are enjoying this festive month of December.  Our weekend was a fun and relaxing couple of days.  We went to our cousin’s Meera and Mahesh’s home for our annual holiday cousins’ dinner on Saturday. And on Sunday relaxed and did some last minute holiday decorating.  As with every year, our evening with the cousins is always fun with family, delicious food and lots of laughter. We’ve been doing this holiday dinner for over fifteen years, even before the little ones were born, and its a holiday party that all our families look forward to every year.  We spend the evening chatting and laughing over silly stories, partake of delicious homemade food, and exchange curated handpicked Christmas presents.  For me its always the cutest thing to see the kids faces when they are handing out their presents.  Here is a look at this year’s holiday party with the cousins.

These kids sure are the cute!
