One of my favorite parties of the year is the one at my Aunt's house with all my cousins and extended family. I don't get to see them very often so it is nice to be able to gather and see them and their faces! We exchange gifts with my cousins kiddos and we decided several years back to make it books only, which I love!!
If you haven't checked out the Pig and the Elephant books, you are missing out. They are awesome! Anytime you can find good kids books that you don't mind reading over and over and over and over again, because you know that is what is going to happen, it is amazing!
