Thankful for Family: Corsetti-Pandolfo Thanksgiving

 New traditions are brewing in the Corsetti Family.  Only recently did my mother start hosting Thanksgiving, instead of us (all 30 something) going to my Grandparent's house.  This year my sister, Katie, and her husband, Sam hosted Thanksgiving in their new home.
 After an awesome pajama morning watching the Macy's Parade, I took the girls over to Katie and Sam's house.  Eric had to work a half day to make up for some sick time off.

We had a delicious potluck appetizer lunch while watching Football and enjoying family time.  Sam's dad, step mom and her daughter's family joined us this year, too!
 The kids played outside and did crafts and watched shows on the iPad.
 And to everyone's surprise, Dad fell asleep on the couch.
 And finally it was time for Katie to organize the oven.  She used her best Home Ec teacher voice to figure out what needed to go in the oven when.
 And there were more crafts.
 And more iPad.
As Evie said, "Mom, Aunt Katie doesn't have kid toys"
But finally it was dinner time.  And oh what a feast it was!  See the details of her fabulous decor here.
 We took a quick family photo. When your brother works for UPS, Thanksgiving night is the last night of freedom before Busy Season.  We kissed him good night (and more or less good bye) and wished him luck for truck loading.


Thank you to Sam and Katie for hosting our One-Big-Happy-Family Thanksgiving!

I leave you with this gem.
Happy Thanksgiving!
