My brother, Jeff and his family are fabulous hosts. They have unofficially won the honor of hosting Thanksgiving from now on :-) It was so nice to be able to just sit and chat with them while the Grandparents entertained the children!! They have a beautiful home (my sister-in-law has a knack for decorating on a budget and having it look like a magazine showroom).
Jeff was in charge of dinner (his choice) and I must say - he made the best turkey I've ever tasted in my entire life. It was so flavorful and moist. If he'll share his recipe for me to use on the turkey in my freezer, I promise to share :-) They also made some incredible corn on the cob - wow, I need that recipe too!!!
We headed back home that evening - have you ever noticed that the drive home seems to take twice as long even though the actual time is the same? Wow, that was one long drive - but it really wasn't bad! Both kids zonked and went right to bed when we got home.
Here's a few pictures :
|The table before we ate - Brittany and Brandon made the Pilgrim hats :-)|
|The adults minus Brandon who was taking the photo|
|The kid table - I just loved seeing Josh sitting at that table with his cousins. He LOVED Kate and "talked" to her the whole time. And I promise, Nate is here - but he was sitting in a booster on the floor next to me so he missed the pictures!!|
|Brittany and Brandon - they are awesome!|
|Two of my three brothers and their wives - Ken and Lynnette and Jeff and Nora. Somehow we never got a picture with all of us.|
We also played this awesome skit! You should print it and save it for next year - it really was a lot of fun.

I don't post these types of posts often but it is fun to actually write about what's going on the life of the Koll's :-)
