We had a wonderful Thanksgiving season. Lucas and his roommate Ryan Akers arrived around 2:30 on Wed. afternoon. They had driven 18 hours straight through from Virginia along with a fellow classmate from Eau Claire. With three drivers they arrived relatively rested. We went to a Thanksgiving service and Lucas delivered his bumper. He sold it to a couple in the church. Uncle Noel, Lauretta and Phyllis were with us for Thanksgiving Day. Jessica and others made lefse and pies. The boys did several hunts, but did not get a deer. The Olsons gave us two of their deer for venison. We appreciate the Lord's provision. With much help from Matthew, Peter and Dad, we got it cut up on Mon. Tues. we took 50 pounds over to our neighbor, Al, to get it ground into hamburger. The temps. have been down to 5F with winds. It feels quite cold. I put straw on my tulips and tried to cover my hybrid roses with tarps. Hopefully they will survive the winter. Most of all we are thankful for a joyous Thanksgiving. Let the redeemed of the Lord say so. Ryan and Lucas are safely back at Patrick Henry College in Virginia.
