Now, if you know me at all, you will not be surprised to find out that things didn't go quite as scheduled. We got the dough ready and grandma headed to the quilt shop for a little browsing, when much to our dismay we realized that we didn't have the cover for the pastry board. This resulted in lefse dough sticking to the board and making it impossible to proceed. UGH!
We took a break from lefse-ing to play Three-Thirteen and Pit, (Side note: play Pit. Noisy, rambunctious fun!) while grandma purchased fabric and sewed a cover for the pastry board. This took longer than expected, like it always does, but she did it. We put it on, hoping it would work since she put a lot of time and effort into it. Voila, it worked!
Unfortunately by the time we got all the ducks in a row, it was time for my mom and Keith to head home, but at least they got to be in on all of the game fun. The kids had a blast helping and we all loved sampling our wares. This is the first year Elliot has wanted to help and he did a great job. I just love carrying on this tradition and being surrounded by generations of love and experience.
OK.Prepare yourself, people.Photos galore of our fun day.
