No turkey wurkey for me

It's Thanksgiving week back in America, and I won't be there this Thanksgiving Thursday to partake in the turkey, dressing and all the other deliciousness that comes along with the holiday and..GASP...I won't be there for Black Friday!  Which, may be for the best...the crowds,'s exhausting.  I am looking forward to going home for Christmas though (when I'll also be going to a baby shower being thrown for me by my friends and family...just a few more months to go until Baby Concannon makes his/her debut) so at least there's that.  I did, however, have a dream last night that I was driving in America and I kept driving on the wrong side of the road since I'm so used to the side of the road used here.  Um, hopefully that won't happen.

 It's the first time I've never been home for Thanksgiving, so I'm not super thrilled about it.  Anyway, I thought I'd post a few photos of some previous Thanksgiving days (well just last year) for old times sake.

Aaaaaaaaaaaaa!  It's the Thanksgiving turkey butcher!  Run turkeys run!  Na...that's just my brother.  I don't think he reads my blog, so I'm sure he won't mind me posting this.
The bird that didn't have a chance.
Me and my niece Madison.

A few of the dessert options...pumpkin pie, pecan pie and yum yum.

The aftermath.  We de-boned that Turkey.
In the end, the turkey won.

I've been asked a few times to explain what Thanksgiving actually is and what it means and I seem to have a hard time explaining it, so for anyone here in Derry that isn't too sure about what it is, here's a link to Wikipedia...maybe they can explain it better haha.

And, it can also be summed up pretty well by Adam Sandler and his Thanksgiving song...listen below:
