Joy, Ken, the girls and Ken’s dad, Bill, came on Wednesday. My folks came the same day and were at Candy’s. Since we had seven and Candy had six (Cookie and Binni, as well), we had two dinners, one at each place.
Bitty spent time knitting
Cribbage, as usual, went on all weekend.
Friday afternoon, Mom, Dad and Wayne came over for pie and visiting. Candy stayed home and napped while Cookie and Binni went home, as Cookie had to work that day.
We had the traditional foods: turkey, dressing, potatoes, sweet potatoes, broccoli with cheese, scalloped corn. Ken is our resident turkey man, so he was in charge of the turkey, and it was wonderful, as usual. All of us over-ate, as usual, too.
Bitty was excited to discover that I had acquired a "REAL" turkey platter!

Tasha, stay out!
Saturday morning, everyone but me, myself and I (and the dogs) went shopping in town; Ken and Bill left from there and went home to the Cities, the rest came back here.
Joy is spinning llama
Can you see the fine yarn in her right hand (your left, of course)?
A touching moment
Tasha needed a bath so was wrapped in blankets to dry
Holy lefse, Batman!
The barber shop is open
Lifting off to go on the griddle
So now the house is quiet. Peanut is wondering where the kids and Tasha are; I am taking it easy and Norm has been working outside; he just came in with another armload of wood.
Now it is time to get serious about a Christmas letter and Christmas presents. Most of them will be home-made this year; I certainly hope people will like them!
It has been a beautiful time here at Ash Lane Farm. I hope you all had a beautiful time yourselves and will have a beautiful day tomorrow.
