Christmas 2013 with the Estellas

So…

This Christmas 2013 was amazing, as usual. Christmas dinner was at my house this year so I watched my mom prepare the appetizer dips (read the full recipes here and here). My relatives started to arrive at around 7pm, and after a lively rendition of “Little Drummer Boy”, we sat down to eat.

Tonight’s dinner menu…

Appetizers:
~ Artichoke dip
~ Ham & Cheese dip

After dinner us cousins decided to play the game Cards Against Humanity, which was HILARIOUS. I decided to try the Twinings Apple, Cinnamon, and Raisin tea – it was pretty good, though I think it would have been better with some honey.

We called it an early night because we had a family photoshoot planned for early the next day!
