A Wonderful Thanksgiving!

We had an amazing Thanksgiving. We were blessed to have 5 out of the 6 White siblings at our house. We had a total of 23 for dinner, 19 of which stayed with us for a few days. It was so much FUN!

We had:

April and Rick with their son Makana. Their oldest son, Kaulana, was not able to come due to his first baby due this week - we are still awaiting to hear of her arrival.

Margo and Greg with their 3 children. Their oldest, Brittany, was in San Diego celebrating Thanksgiving with her in-laws.

Paul was able to come with April.

Kurt and I with our 3 kids, who by the way, were in heaven with all their cousins here!

Jenny and Chad with their 7 kids.

We wish Jared and Dianne and their 3 kids could have been here but they live in Virginia.
Dad and Julie spent Thanksgiving in Utah with Julie's children.

Here are some pics of our fun time:

Eating delicious mandarin oranges
You have to love California weather - it was beautiful!
All 14 kids played outside while we cooked!

Uncle Rick and Uncle Greg checking the
turkey on the BBQ - delicious!
We were worried about seating because we
don't have 23 seats inside but the weather
was wonderful so the kids ate outside.

Our attempts at a family picture:

We are hoping that our niece, Jessica, got a better one!

We thank everyone for coming and making the journeys to our house. We had a great time and hope everyone else did too! We especially thank all those that helped in the kitchen! We couldn't have done it without you!

This looks like fun. We are also big believers in weather that lets the kids play outside. We got our wish this year too.
