As Americans prepare for the Thanksgiving holiday, there's plenty to be thankful for this year. Perhaps, thankful that you're not a turkey or thankful that you're the turkey that President Obama pardoned. Thankful for a helping hand and a tasty bite of a pumpkin. Maybe you're thankful that you made your flight on time. Whatever the case, these photos from earlier this week show the best parts of Thanksgiving.
