The Trump family came together to celebrate Thanksgiving at Mar-a-Largo, and no one enjoyed the holiday more than his grandchildren!

President Trump is grandfather to nine children, and the family shared photos of their celebrations online.

Ivanka Trump said two of her children, 7-year-old Arabella and 4-year-old Joseph, were advocating for a vegetarian Thanksgiving this year following the White House turkey pardoning.

"After watching their Grandpa pardon 'Peas' and 'Carrots' at the White House on Tuesday, Joseph and Arabella have sworn off turkey and are insisting on a vegetarian Thanksgiving!" she wrote online.

Unfortunately, the menu at the Trump family's Thanksgiving feast at the president's Mar-a-Lago resort in Florida didn't go light on the meat.

The meal included turkey with all the trimmings, beef tenderloin, lamb, salmon, braised short ribs, Chilean sea bass, red snapper and a chilled seafood display, The Associated Press reported. The sides included whipped potatoes, sweet potatoes and stuffing, while the salad bar included deviled eggs, duck prosciutto and melon.

Ivanka, who attended the meal with her family, also shared a photo of Joseph and Arabella with their 2-year-old brother, Theodore, after they got all dressed up for the big day.

"From our family to yours, happy Thanksgiving!" she wrote.

President Trump's youngest grandchild, Luke, also spent the day with the family at Mar-a-Lago. Luke is the son of Eric Trump and his wife, former Inside Edition producer Lara Trump.

Meanwhile, Donald Jr., who did not spend the holiday with his dad and siblings, shared photos of his daughter Chloe making the most of the Thanksgiving treats. Together they enjoyed turkey, sweet potatoes, stuffing and chocolate cupcakes.

Chloe, 4, is Donald Jr.'s youngest child with his ex-wife, Vanessa. They have five children together: Kai, Donald III, Tristan, Spencer and Chloe.

In Florida, President Trump, his wife Melania and their 12-year-old son, Barron, were joined by Ivanka's family, Eric's family and the president's other daughter, Tiffany.

On Thanksgiving, the president called troops deployed overseas and visited a local coast guard station. He also spent time at his golf course nearby, gave thanks for his family — and for himself.

“I made a tremendous difference in this country,” he said during the call to troops. “This country is so much stronger now than it was when I took office and you wouldn’t believe it and when you see it, we’ve gotten so much stronger people don’t even believe it.”
