We headed off to Aunt Gloria and Uncle Joe's beautiful home for their 2nd annual "Seven Fishes" Christmas Eve dinner. It is such a special time for all of us, and this year even more so because all five "original" cousins were in the house. (This hasn't happened in quite a few years. Welcome home, JP!) The Wog and The Doodle especially enjoy the chance to visit with their NJ cousins.

The Wog and Mary strike a pose:

They got lost in the manger for about 15 minutes. They both liked the Baby Jesus best:

Holly the angel (and birthday girl!) joined them:

Pretty much how The Doodle enters any room:

Liam followed shortly after!

The Wog winds up a snow globe:

Cousins and Kris Kringles:

It was a very poufy Christmas:

Aunt Gloria and youngest cousin (and brand new 1-year-old), Jimmy:

Sweet Holly:

Getting ready for chocolate mousse:

And there it is!

Leo was very proud of his:

The Doodle opted for a Christmas banana, instead:

If you can't tell from the look on her face, The Wog is smitten with John. Too bad he is already betrothed. (And then there's that whole "cousins" thing!)

I have so many pictures from our Christmas trip to NJ and hope to get all of them over here during the next couple of days --especially since we'll be under a couple feet of snow! (I just noticed The Wog's oldest cousin, Peter, is missing from these pictures. He was probably demonstrating an amazing magic trick or talking football during most of the action, but we have more to come!)
