New England Patriots quarterback Tom Brady made it clear this Thanksgiving that he was thankful for more than his shining NFL career.

Brady posted a video on Facebook showing his two small children playing in a pile of autumn leaves before being startled by a person dressed in a turkey costume.

"So thankful for everyone's support this year... Happy Thanksgiving to all! ‪#‎TurkeyTom‬," Brady wrote in the post.

His daughter, Vivian, is seen tumbling back in surprise as the giant turkey gobbles around in the leaves.
