I hope you have had a wonderful Thanksgiving with family and friends.  Did you see me among the "Black Thursday" shoppers standing outside in the rain waiting for the store to open?  Of course not!  I was comfortable in my Patriots pajamas watching Thanksgiving Day Football starting with the Lions v. Texans at noon, took a nap (nothing against the teams but I skipped the Cowboys v. Redskins game) and would not miss the Patriots v. Jets game for all the bargains in the world!  I woke up to the sweet aroma of apple and pumpkin pies on Thanksgiving morning.  CP was up at his normal schedule which is at 0500 hours to make the pies.
It was good to see church was almost full for the 9 o'clock Mass, especially it was not a Holy Day of Obligation.  It was optional and the people who attended Mass wanted to be there.  We know that we have so much to be thankful and we are grateful for God's blessings.  Everyone brought non-perishable foods (monetary also was accepted) to be donated to the food pantry.  
CP did all the cooking and once again did a great job with the turkey, green bean casserole, mashed potatoes, and gravy.  I was in charge of making the salad and cutting up the bread to put in the serving basket ;>)
We took these photos last month on our Sunday Drive to Hermann, Missouri.  A little church with the red doors in the country surrounded by harvested fields made perfect backdrop for the T-bird.
