From Reuters: President Joe Biden delivered at least a half-dozen pumpkin pies to Massachusetts firefighters during a Thanksgiving celebration on Thursday, and his baby grandson walked away with a red fire hat over his blond locks.

“Oh wow,” Biden was heard saying as he watched nearly 3-year-old Beau Biden emerge from headquarters wearing a hat. The President was with the firefighters who had lined up in front of the building to welcome him.

Biden had expressed his appreciation for firefighters and other emergency responders earlier in the day when he and his wife Jill spoke to the hosts of NBC’s Macy’s Thanksgiving Day Parade in New York over the phone.

“I want to thank the firefighters and police officers, the first responders. They never take a break,” he said during the call. The Bidens spoke later Thursday with units from all six branches of the U.S. military deployed in Europe, at sea, in Guantanamo Bay, Cuba, and at Whiteman Air Force Base in Missouri, the White House said.

“We remember her every day,” he said during the show. “God bless our troops.”

Jill Biden appeared to be trying to get her grandson to talk to the firefighters, but Beau didn’t look up. She heard her say she didn’t know why he was so quiet.

During a brief call with reporters, Biden said he hopes the upcoming Republican-controlled House of Representatives will continue US aid to Ukraine. He also said his team was involved in negotiations to avoid a freight strike in early December, which could further disrupt the economy.

After the visit, Biden returned to the Nantucket home where he is spending the vacation with his family, including son Hunter and his wife Melissa – who are Beau’s parents – and daughter Ashley.

The family’s Thanksgiving meal included thyme roast turkey, stuffing and sherry sauce, seared scallops, three types of cake and the President’s favorite ice cream, chocolate chips.
