Thanksgiving at the Melonis

We began with a dazzling array of appetizers. My favorites? the apricot cheese and the cranberry goat cheese. Christian, as usual, went for the salami and prosciutto.

Christian is a take-charge kind of guy. He organized three contests.

First Contest: The Best Pumpkin Pie

I won the pumpkin pie contest. My mother would be proud! Christian was the wise judge.

Second Contest: The Paper Airplane That Traveled the Farthest

Christian won the paper airplane contest.

Third Contest: The Winner of the Wii Bowling Contest

There were two teams: Andrea and Marcello bowled against Christian and Colin. The victory of Christian and Colin was decisive. Christian threw almost all strikes. Colin threw mostly strikes and spares. (Have they been practicing?) Marcello was pretty good but not as good as his sons. Andrea threw no strikes, no spares, and numerous gutter balls, to the delight of everyone.
