Happy Thanksgiving everyone. I hope you and your family have many blessings to count this holiday.

I know I am very grateful that my family is happy and healthy, and that my oldest daughter, Meg, is coming home from college for the holiday.

We are looking forward to turkey and all the trimmings, football games, and a late night game of "Balderdash".

After you've had your fill of turkey leftovers and football games, I hope you'll join me Saturday for the kick-off of this year's Newschannel 8 Great Toy Drive.
This Saturday, we'll be at Washington Square at 9385 Greenburg Road near the intersection of Greenburg and Hall Road.
(We're at the Les Schwab location near J.C. Penney's.)

The toy drive has become a tradition for my son, Will and me.
We started volunteering at the toy drives when Will was in the first grade.
Now, he's 12 years old, but still looks forward to getting up early Saturday morning, hitting Starbucks for a hot chocolate, and heading out to collect toys for disadvantaged children in the Metro area.

We'll be out there to greet you early Saturday morning, and other KGW staffers will be on hand throughout the day.

Will asked for a Santa costume for Halloween, so he can dress up as Santa's helper at the toy drive.
So, I will be there with my little "Santa". I hope to see you there, too.

Happy Thanksgiving!
