16 cousins and significant others participate in some sort of [amazing] event together every year.  We call it Cousin Christmas and it typically involves some form of dress-up and loss of inhibitions.  And laughing.  Lots and lots of laughing.  We’ve got chemistry, what can I say?  Thanks to Macquelle and Brennan, 2011 was the year of:
