Thanksgiving was a good day spent hanging out with cousins Laurynn and Jack, having plenty of turkey and plenty of laughs. Dan and my brother Eric are in a tight race for who qualifies as craziest uncle. They convinced us to walk out on the ice on the local pond. As Jack said, "If Uncle Dan says it's ok, what could go wrong?"
We didn't talk about Shannon much, but she is certainly on their minds. They proudly wear their Shannon stocking caps, and Jack even has a Shannon wall in his room featuring pictures of her and momentos of his big cousin. They remember.
