We have the best time when the cousins from the north visit us cousins in the south!

We had Christmas in July! I started planning this idea when my cousin and her family left last summer! They only are able to visit one week each year and we have never been able to spend Christmas together. We always celebrate birthdays when they are here because 4 of us fall in the same week. We surprised them this year by putting up a Christmas tree and decorations and by wrapping all the birthday gifts in Chrismas paper. We also put lights up all over the deck by my aunt's pool. Thursday night we had a full on Christmas dinner! Turkey, dressing, corn, carrots, potatos, rolls, green bean casserole, deviled eggs, sweet tea, etc! Then we had homemade ice cream and a red and green birthday cake for dessert! It was a fun week. We were really sad to see them go.

  1. Now, THAT is an AWESOME way to celebrate Christ's birth! In fact, it's my understanding that Jesus may have been born in the summer time!
