Miriam doesn't only eat raw chicken legs, she eats fingers as well!! Actually, Silas was making pappenait (I'm sure that's not the correct spelling but it's a German word so I spell it only by sound). He had just too much dough on his fingers before washing them so Miriam helped him out.
Naomi and Aaron are making lefse this evening. We're breaking Aaron into our traditions this Christmas! So far he's been a good sport and even tolerates Silas and Priscilla's teasing and jokes.
Miriam helped me paint the stair walls the same color as our living room. I added a little texture to hide some cracks in the old walls and was pretty pleased.
We had our church ladies Christmas tea this Saturday. My sister-in-law Linda made the delicious lunch and gave a great devotional on the gifts God has given us.
Okay, last year on lefse making day we posted a lefse poem. This year we thought we'd tell you a few Ole, Sven, and Lena jokes. (Very popular jokes among Scandanavians.)
Sven and Ole got a job putting in telephone poles. At the end of the day the foreman asked them, "How many poles did you put in?"
"Two." Said Ole
"Only two?"asked the foreman, "The other men all put in seven or eight."
"Yah," said Ole, "But did you see how much dey left sticking out?"
Lena had just bought a new cell phone and called Ole. "Hi dere, Ole. Guess what? I'm talkin to you while I'm driving down the interstate."
Ole said, "Uffda, Lena, yous better be careful. I yust saw on de news dat dere's one idiot drivin da wrong way down da interstate."
"What do you mean one idiot?" Lena said, "Dere must be a hundred idiots goin da wrong way."
Ole says, "Offda is when you drop a bag of garbage. Ishda is when you have to pick it up."
The first thing to go is da memory. Da second ting is da... da.. what was I talking about?
Sven and Ole were shingling a roof when Sven noticed Ole throwing about half of the nails down on da ground. Sven asked, "Vhy are yous thowing all dose nails down on da ground?"
"Vell," said Ole, "Dey all got heads on da wrong end.
Sven replied, "Dose nails are for da udder side of da roof!"
Have a happy evening! Proverbs 15:13 A merry heart maketh a cheerful countenance..."
