Happy Thanksgiving

Happy Thanksgiving from the Potter house.  This year was the Potter year for Thanksgiving so we had the entire Potter family over.  I think we counted about 28 total people in our itty bitty house.  It was hilarious & fun all at the same time.

Even Grandma Kinsfather was able to travel up from Redondo Beach.  My kids always love spending time with Grandma K.


Trek enjoys time with his brothers & his sisters, but whenever the Potter "BOYS" are in the house, there's always some sort of a wrestling match at some point.  Talon & Trek especially like to challenge one another as to who is actually stronger.  Usually there is a definate winner, but this year, they both just gave up once they got tired.  I guess we're officially getting old now.  ha ha ha.


I love how my sweet niece Ella, thought that Daddy & Uncle Trek were "snuggling" so she joined them. . . even though Talon had Trek in a full choke hold.


The best part of every night was gathering together as a family & telling stories about the past.  It's my favorite thing to do with Trek's family.  I love their stories & the stories I've been able to be a part of over the years.


And of course Opa got to tell ALL his grandbabies stories before bedtime as they snuggled with Oma. 


Thanksgiving Day was wonderful.  This was my first year brining a turkey, & wow.  It really turned out amazing.  It was moist & seasoned & just plain delicious.


We had a wonderful appetizer spread to snack on as we waited for the main dishes to finish cooking.




The 3 Aunties had a blast playing with all the nieces & nephews.  They really are wonderful Aunties.


The kids' table had a coloring tablecloth with coloring placemats to keep the kiddos busy while we ate & talked.  It worked like a charm.  They were busy for hours.


And the adult table looked nice too.










Dinner was delicious.



After dinner, we all went into the living room to enter our "turkey comas."  Almost everyone took a nap while the kids, who never seem to sleep, watched a movie.



Except Canyon, who fell asleep on his Oma.


Everyone got to stay a few days after Thanksgiving which was fun.  We went to the mall with all the kids & took them to some parks in our area.


We also went to see the Trolls movie which the kids LOVED.  And since we are all excited about the new Fantastic Beasts movie, we had to take a picture.


It was a wonderful Thanksgiving with WONDERFUL people.
