We ate at Cousin Pam's house with: Bob (whose brother Mark and sister Michelle also joined us), Ethan (taller and tougher), Alyssa (sweeter and talkative), Aunt Mary (cooking but worried about Uncle Tony, who is still in the hospital with complications from his pancreatic cancer treatments), as well as Cousin Charlie, new wife Kara, and 3-month-old Sophia. What a beauty! Everyone wanted to hold her and make funny baby noises in her face. Captain had the best luck rocking her to sleep. The twins were especially happy to see the snow and went out in the late afternoon to play in it. The teen girls and moms headed for a movie, while the "old guys" watched football on TV. Just the way a Thanksgiving should be.
