Thanksgiving Dinner

Thanksgiving was wonderful and yummy.

The food was awesome and there was more then enough for all of us.

We had 21 members of our family there.

My oldest sister who lives in Boise was here. Christine. Husband Kurt, sons -  Shawn and Kevin. Her 3rd son, Justin had to work and ended up cooking his own Thanksgiving dinner.

My oldest brother Lyle and his 3 children, Jenny, Taylor and Grant. Jenny brought her 2 children and her boyfriend. Grant brought his girlfriend and Taylor the youngest was there with us.

There was Richard, Rhonda, Autumn, Tymber and Hope,

Me and Brady. Jason and Sharon stayed home because they had to work.

My other sister who lives in Pocatello didn't join us and stayed home with her children. That kinda made me sad that not all of us were there. We did get together and visit - even though we didn't eat together.

In my mother's new home she has two full kitchens - one on each floor. We ended up having our dinner in the basement where the great room / family room was. There was more room downstairs for all of us. It's nice that her house is big enough for all of us. Plus to cook in two kitchens is great!

The middle adult table. Mom in red, Grant (Lyle's son) and his girlfriend - which I can't remember her name. Taylor and Jenny (Lyle's daughters), Nate Jenny's boyfriend, Lyle, Richard, Rhonda and me.

I didn't get a picture of the 3rd table - which was Chris, Kurt, Shawn and Kevin.

It was one of our better Thanksgiving holiday. More people came to this year because of Richard's and Rhonda's temple marriage. I wish it was like this every year. It was nice enjoying the time we spent together, playing games and getting in touch with what is going on in our lives. I truly belong to a wonderful family!

It is beautiful! Two kitchens? Wow!
That's a lot of cleaning up. I would be a lazy person and go to the clean kitchen instead of cleaning up after myself.

Love your pictures. Your family looks awesome.

First of all, can I just say those potatoes look delicious!!!
Isn't it a blessing to have the family all together! So happy about the good news of your brother and sister-in-law being sealed in the temple!
