My dad’s side of the family has it’s roots in the deep south. My uncle very much celebrates this fact and you see it with the decorations in his house. Here are some of the more eccentric – mounted alligator heads. Freaky. Steve threw this holiday party as an excuse (like he needs one!) to cook up a huge slab of prime rib. Cooking is one of his passions and he never disappoints. The party was also for my Aunt Elissa, who was in from Florida, and my cousin Jason who was visiting from Virginia.
My dad is the oldest of eight kids so I have cousins galore (my mom is also one of eight kids). Several of them, including my brother, had babies this year. These are my cousin, Anna’s, twins Colin & Keegan.
