We celebrated Thanksgiving for the first time at Kathryn's new house in Paducah (which meant a 10 hour round trip on Thanksgiving day for Jeff and Ally). Kate and Dad and I went down on Tuesday and stayed until Friday afternoon.
Unfortunately, my camera battery was dead on Thanksgiving so I didn't get any pictures when everyone was together. Here are some pictures of the day after and a cool video of Uncle John's Model T in action.

and Ted is at Boston University working on a PhD in Physics. They're adorable together!

Just turn your head sideways ....
By the way, Kate seems to be over whatever it was that was bothering her. It has been a tense couple of weeks with lots of doctors and tests -- but no one could quantify anything but a racing heartbeat and some strange blood pressures. Larry thinks it was a "perfect storm" of stress, a flu bug, and a reaction to some medication -- none of which would have caused her symptoms independently but all together they packed a punch. Anyway, I'm glad she's feeling better and thanks to everyone for your concern and prayers.
