This is where all of the kids get to hang out together and we try to all meet at one place to exchange our gifts. Family is what it's all about...it's the greatest gift of all.

For appetizers my aunt made her famous Cocktail Smokies, which everyone seems to love so much. She made a huge pot of them and they were gone in an instant.
In case you're wondering the recipe consists of:
1 (10 oz. Jar) of Apricot Jelly
(2 packages) Cocktail Sausages or Little Smokies
Mix together and place in the crock pot. Heat until smokies are warmed, approximately 2 hours. You can cook them on the stove top as well.
She also made the most mouth watering meatballs. My husband was like, "who made these?" My Goddaughter said, "my mom." So he replied with, "She's coming home with me!" Lol. I always told him that my aunt cooks so Goooooooddddd! I guess he never believed me.
What did you guys do with your families?
