The gifts were special, too. Lois gave me a small cross that says Let everything that has breath praise the Lord and I had made a purse for her. Betsy gave us notebooks with family heritage recipes in it....the title of the cookbook is Gaar vi til Bords which in Norwegian is we come to the table. Included are some recipes from our grandmother, and some from a great aunt, and some from a dear lady we called aunt. Included in these recipes are a couple for lefse.
Which was the gift we received from sister Ruth! Lefse! She had gone through a little town down in the hills of southeastern Minnesota, known for it's lefse factory, and had stopped to buy us each our holiday supply of lefse.
However, no gifts were needed. Spending these hours with my sisters was gift enough for me. We had a very enjoyable time in a lovely decorated home, and we feasted on good food and drink. Thank you, each of you! I love you all.
