The Treasure Hunt

John, Rachael, Flora and Lucy arrived early Saturday afternoon. Aunt Judy prepared a series of instructions so the kids could have some fun hunting for treasures. Flora read the clues, and they were off on the search.

The clues involved going to such areas as the pool table on the lower floor, to a table on the second floor, the hallway on the first floor, and even outside to the hot tub. At each station there were clues. The last stop was our room. Prizes were new PJ's for each grand kid.

In addition to the pajamas, there were other goodies such as sweet and sour tart bracelets!

On Saturday evening we had our Thanksgiving feast. Turkey, dressing, cranberry salad, hot rolls, green beans, sweet potatoes, Uncle Bill's famous cooked apples, and mashed potatoes with gravy.

Later, we celebrated Lucy's fourth birthday. Grandma Judy baked a chocolate cake and Sarah iced and decorated the layers. Sarah made the icing with a hundred pounds of confectionery sugar (OK- it was ONLY two pounds). The cake was certainly heavy and dense with generous layers of sugary topping.

Tomorrow - Lucy's Fourth Birthday.
