Home for the Holidays - Part 1 (Christmas Eve)

Christmas Eve started off with a visit to a very quiet University of Michigan campus in Ann Arbor. We were the only souls walking around since everyone was gone for the holidays. Sonali, Alisha, Jenn, Sanay and I walk to the Diag where we walked AROUND but not on the "M." None of us wanted to fail our first blue book! 

Then we walked over to my favorite place on campus...the Law Quad. It was a quick trip but it was nice to be on campus, next time I hope to visit at a livelier time. Then we headed over to my cousin's house for Christmas Eve dinner. 

Before dinner they put together some "Minute to Win It" games for the family to play. Everyone had a great time playing and spectating! There was a game where you use a balloon to blow a row of cups off the table in a minute, another was to shake your booty until all the bells in the box fall out before your opponent, and the old classic "Pin-the-Nose on the Reindeer."

Watch that cup fly off the table!

The spectators cheering during the games!

Who was the winner???

The bells are ready. Get ready to shake your tiny booties!!!

Then we had an Indian fest followed by an exchange of Secret Santa presents. The presents consisted of making an ornament and something bought. All the presents were great! 

Dinner time! 

Beautiful ornament

Visit my blog later this week to see what the Patel family did for Christmas...
