This year's Thanksgiving day dinner was just us since our kids were the only ones that had the days off as a holiday. All the other local schools and all businesses worked on Thursday and Friday. It was my first working Thanksgiving, well since I played high school football on turkey-day.
This weekend we also witnessed some foliage for the first time in many, many years. The first leaves our kids have seen change colors (other than green to brown) since we lived in FL.
YangMei found a nice 12 lb. turkey, for 400 RMB ($60), mashed some potatoes, boiled some brussel sprouts and baked a pumkin pie. It was a very yummy meal!

|Here's our Thanksgiving day feast!|
|Turkey, potatoes, brussel sprouts, mushrooms, |
squash and carrots. No stuffing this year...
|But we did manage to have the traditional pumpkin pie.|
Do you remember those pumpkins from Halloween?

|These leaves will be gone in a few days since the compound|
workers will rake them up almost daily!
