You and your vs You and yours

you and youris used as a contemptuous dismissal of the thing or person mentioned:

  • “I was born there…. It was called after my uncle.” “Shut up—you and your uncle!”

you and yours —(coll.) you and your family (also: you and your near and dear ones):

  • I and mine will be happy to see you and yours here or anywhere.
