Hey, I'll post this on our reunion blog so ya'll can give your inpuy there please, so we avoid another e-mail chain Wanted to share that Mom & I spent the better of the day together and the subj. of Jan 2016 and Christmas came up. I know that we (Mom & I) are picking names this year - haven't gotten to it and can't really promise anything as cool as what Michael or Clare have done the past couple years but it'll be soon.
Anyway the point(s) I wanted to share was that Mom spoke of
a) "I don't know how much room there is, but I was thinking of my
cousins - they have reached out to me since Dad died and that has meant a
lot to me." Shall we reach out to her cousins and extend an
invitation? Can we legally put Carvers on the floor for the sake of
them visiting and needing a room?
b) speaking of cousins she spoke of the importance of the Carver cousins
getting to know each other and what about asking anyone over 21 or
anyone over 18? to participate in the Christmas Kris-Kringle - your
thoughts? My sense was that she feels family is important and we as the
aunts & uncles should probably be doing more to help them get to
know each other.
c) so,,, I felt the need to share with you where her heart is "at" - at least right now....
