|My Uncle Frank - cutting the bird|
I slept most of Tuesday (after getting home from school and grocery shopping) and all of Wednesday... so by the time Thursday rolled around, I was feeling up to dinner at my uncle's house. It was a perfect meal - with all my family gathered together in one spot. We were even able to skype-in my mom, dad, sister, and dogs using my uncle's large screen Web-TV. (And yes, my mom actually held up each of the dogs in turn so I could see them)
This Thanksgiving, I am also especially grateful for the carcinoid community - and I draw on their love, strength, support and courage every single day.
|My grandparents have been married for over 60 years - and at dinner, they were holding hands under the table.. so cute!|
|The Family (minus CA crew and 3 cousins who were running late)|
