Archive: Thanksgiving 2017 with the Corbett Family

Posted By on November 26, 2017


Better late than never in posting a few photos from our Thanksgiving day dinner and family time over this extended weekend. My brother Ron and his family were all able to get together at our house this year with our two new additions: Annalyn (Katelyn and Drew) and Teagan (Keira and Ben). Thankfully all of us live in Ohio and travel was a non-issue. since the weather was great.


Brenda always enjoys setting the table in the dining room and she pretty much over-did the little extras and "trimmings" this year. I know we all appreciated it (my mother would have especially enjoyed it) as we all ate our fill. Brenda made a special effort to use items for the table each of our late moms … as well as grandparents. So nice.


The turkey and trimming were delicious and we all enjoyed the time together … likely knowing it may be less and less as each or our children marry and will have their own family traditions. For now, it was great to be together.


Our kids were around for the day after Thanksgiving and we all had fun watching some football, a Christmas movie and playing the board game Settlers of Catan. We waved goodbye to Katelyn, Drew and Annalyn on Saturday watching them drive off in their new 2018 Volkswagen Tiguan (click play for video).
