Joan, everyone is so excited about whats going on this week with you! Fill us all in on what’s happening.
Well, as you all might have figured out from my clues in last week’s blog, I am riding on top of a float in the Thanksgiving Day Parade, right here in New York City! Melissa and Cooper will be on the float with me and they are so excited!
I am playing The Snow Queen (hold all your snickers, thank you very much!) I snapped this picture during the fitting. Do you think I need a belt??
And Melissa is the Snow Princess:
The entire day should be so much fun. When they called and asked me to be in the parade, my first thought was: tie some ropes around me, move Snoopy out of the way, and float me down Broadway! (OK, I was having an “I feeling fat” day!) But they said I was actually the QUEEN of the parade and I thought: that works for me! I get to put on a gorgeous dress and wear a crown and carry a scepter. Life is good!
I can’t wait. I will have a house full of adults and children and we’ll all be watching you. I know that you, Cooper and Missy all volunteer for God’s Love We Deliver every Thanksgiving, so you have a busy schedule. So, how many for dinner?
About 18 and they’re all friends and family. It’s really one of my favorite holidays. Actually, I love it so much, I do it twice! Thanksgiving night, Missy and Cooper and I all head up to our place in Connecticut and do the whole thing again on Friday! I’ll be sure to take some pictures and post them next week.

You know David, we all have so much to be thankful for. On this day, it’s so important to remember those less fortunate than we are. Our country is going through a tough time right now and I think we all have to hang in there and help one another.
Very well put, Joan.
