Getting Ready

This coming weekend we are having a 1914 house party.  Our house and barn are 100 years old this year and we've been thinking all year that we should do this.  The year is almost over so we set the date and sent out invitations.  We're pretty excited and the girls have been busy trying the 1914 hairdos and planning outfits that look like they came from back then.  We've also been busy baking.  We're trying to keep most things to what they would've had in this area in 1914, which wasn't much compared to today.  In the picture above, the girls are making lefse and we know they made that.  For those that have never had the Scandanavian lefse, it looks like a tortilla but is made out of mashed potatoes and flour.  They are VERY good and are usually eaten with butter and sugar rolled up.  Basically, we are serving a very simple lunch like they would've had back then.  The house is also getting a good cleanup, like we usually do right before Christmas anyway.

Other than that, Isaac was happy to get his captain's license today.  It's taken a long time to get the training and paperwork done.  Anyone want to get married on the lake or ocean?  He can perform the wedding with his license!  It also gives him permission to be a fishing guide anywhere on US waters. Now we'll have to wait and see if God has a plan for this license.

I hope you all are enjoying this wonderful time of year, the gorgeous weather God is sending us, and the joy of a future in Heaven!
