Adventures in Christmas -- Dinner with the Bess Cousins
Mike, his brother Matt, and his cousins JC and Joanna grew up together -- they're very close in age, and occasionally refer to themselves as "the fab four". Since JC lives out of state, they make a point to get together for dinner every year around this time while he's in town. Every year we choose Applebee's, mainly because one of the uncles gives all of us gift cards to Applebee's. I feel honored to be included in the fab four (along with Joanna's boyfriend, Matt).
